A Wikileaks for Everything?

[...] Neither a radical direct opposition nor a politics of speech and elections will bring forth a libertarian future. But Wikileaks couldn’t be stopped. Even though Julian Assange lives cooped up in the Ecuadorian embassy the site lives on, and just as effectively. Wikileaks still gives whistleblowers a safe haven.

Wikileaks manages to not be a hopeless method of political change as I have described. This is because rather than choosing to look at authority as it commits the act, it commits the act regardless of the authority. The whistleblower chooses to speak the truth in spite of the social authority. They move forward with the act because they can. They do it not in direct opposition of the state – not as an attack per se. Instead, they expose the state, ignoring the authority it has. This attitude of “I will move forward with the act regardless of the state’s existence and what they say about the act.”

This is the Wikileaks attitude that will bring forth political change. [...]

Still waiting for the Wikileaks of the dead, in which the digital records of deceased people will be kept regardless of how controversial they are.

Aaron Swartz said he wanted his computer files to be made free when he died, I don't think I have seen them out there.

Some services disable virtual suicide notes as soon as they are notified that the account owner died, so a Wikileaks of the dead could be used to preserve them too.

@Arnox, @Houseman: what kind of secrets do the masters of your religions hide that makes people be willing to go out and publish them?

I would talk about this but you clearly just want to argue, and frankly, I have better things to do. Consider these two things though. That the foul actions of some people in the church does not mean the whole church is awful through and through, and that the Book of Mormon is way too well written to just be made up by some random farm boy in New England.

I'd be interested to know too.

What WOULD mean that the whole church is awful or corrupt? Is that even theoretically possible?
