Pretty simple question: Is the Russian-influenced, anti-US organization headed by an anarchic rapist who just wants to watch the world burn a good thing?





I think Wikileaks/Snowden/etc are all bad things. I try to think of their endgame and then I realize that they are just purveyors of chaos.

I don't see much difference with all the mighty technology revealing truth.

People just still support their guy or their stupid positions no matter what happens.

If Trump or Hillary were caught on film murdering kittens and raping their dead bodies it wouldn't change a godamn thing. People would still say same stupid shit, "Trump is Hitler! Hillary is so unracist she's better than MLK"

Back when I had an edgy anarchist streak in high school, I liked it. Now that I have perspective, I think they're trying to cause chaos not for the world's benefit, but for some group behind the scenes.

This is borderline "Libertarians don't like rules so why do they want so many rules for what the government can do?" Naïve perspective.

Anyway, probably 50/50. He's got government types handwringing and exposed some shady stuff. On the other hand they seem to be a facilitator of illicit access and/or thievery of information and not just a journalistic whistleblower. They do not seem to have a well-defined set of principles and have taken some dumb stances.

As for Assange himself, he seems like a narcissist, but the rape accusation is a joke and almost certainly a political ploy to capture him. I'd like to see some actual criminal case against him related to Wikileaks functioning could one be made.

The ONLY way to stop or bring down an institution you don't like is instability.
It's a requirement.

My concern with Wikileaks is that they often do not know the significance and/or the danger of the materials which they come into possession of. Whistleblowing is one thing, and in almost every case it is a good thing. But sophisticated analysis of intelligence data requires a great deal more than just common sense or a strong moral compass. People who leak intelligence data have often compromised highly critical operations and put people in mortal danger, usually when doing so was never the intent of the person leaking the information. Consider the following: In July of 1971, the New York Times printed the U.S. Nuclear Arms Falback Position just before a critical arms control summit between Nixon and Brezhnev; thereby destroying any chance for an arms control agreement at that summit. Clearly, they should've known better on that one, but there were many others. The government once fought tooth and nail in the courts to prevent the release of a seemingly innocuous document that was highly classified. Had the people who wanted to leak the document understood how to evaluate such materials properly, they would've realized that the only way we could have learned the information contained in the document was that we had Brezhnev's car bugged. The release of that document tipped off the Kremlin, and a critical source of valuable intelligence was lost forever.

Wikileaks has a habit of releasing tens of thousands of documents in a single "dump." There is no way they could have properly analyzed all of the information contained in those documents. The most seemingly benign sentence contained in one of those documents could put intelligence agents, foreign agents cooperating with the United States, and United States military personnel in mortal danger. We have no way of knowing how many people have been injured, killed, or tortured and imprisoned abroad because critical information was carelessly and thoughtlessly made public. The only thing we no for certain is that it has happened - more than once. It is for these reasons that I condemn what Wikileaks does. Perhaps if they change their practices, then I would revise my opinion of them.
