WikiLeaks

   People that hold power are very indignant about WikiLeaks.
   They vilify their release and those associated with them.
   Those well-paid noisemakers aside, it is refreshing to get raw information that is not controlled or manufactured by governments or their accomplices. 
   The WikiLeaks revelations also awaken a few questions. Why do governments ever have secrets? Ever? Why aren’t they open, transparent and honest all the time? Did the common people elect their representatives to keep secrets from them, to hold matters close and guarded? Why aren’t they just open and honest all the time?
   People who have nothing to hide are not worried about being exposed.
   Only those that deliberately live in darkness are afraid of the light.
