Free Speech For The Dumb

An article posted by Richard Adhikari over at, brings up what might happen to free speech in a post wikileaks world.
I personally don't think the governments of any nation should stop or hinder the publics voice. In this day and age with all the secrecy and questionable actions being taken by all governments I think wikileaks serves a great purpose in helping make government more transparent. I don't think it's fair to the public that government and media outlets censor what they believe is sensitive information. If the government wants to invade out privacy we should reserve the same right to invade theirs, and if they want to continue acting like children and going to war then we should have the right to see and know everything that happens in said war.
Hit the link to read the full article. It's really well thought out and presented.
