Does Wikileaks Represent The End Of Internet History?
Look at Matt Drudge, freaking out over Wikileaks’ so-called â€œinsurance policyâ€ against Julian Assange’s arrest. READY TO LAUNCH â€œDOOMSDAY FILES,â€ Drudge screams. (Red font, too. All we need is a siren.gif and we’re in full meltdown mode.) And Doomsday for whom, exactly? I mean, as of today, all Wikileaks has done is to make available a number of documents that were already available to some 3 million Americans. So if this information is already available to 3 million of our fellow citizens, why not us? Is it wrong for the citizens of a republic to know what’s being done in their name around the world, or does the demand for transparency stop at your ability to stream Netflix movies?
