HURRAY for courageous Wikileakers

by MARY JANIE Saturday, Dec. 11, 2010 at 12:12 AM

Wki-leaks has done what many of us wish we could... OPEN UP THE WORLD OF misinformation, lies, deceits, manipulations, fake diplomacy, propaganda and allllll that is spoken, written that is "not in our name" appropriate. Wow, some of us are very impressed and want these computer workers SUPPORTED, complimented, helped, and given any and every service or help we can each offer... to keep them doing the good work they have been so dedicated to providing to all "the people" including "the American People" too... good ! work ! help protect and increase Free Speech as exposure is not intended to harm but REVEAL what is being done for us that is hurtful and against most of us.

This attempt at FREEING information from those who claim power because they can secret information, emails, disinformation and all manipulative propaganda pulls out my full admiration for all who work at WIKILEAKS.

see Reuters article on this at :

http://www.reuters.com/subjects/wikileaks

for example "Analysis: WikiLeaks battle a new amateur face of cyber war?"

also see Amy Goodman's website for transcripts of interview with Assange and updates

see KPCC, KPFK, BBC and other sites also for more updates as they keep shifting and turning and exposing the fears aroused in those who thought they were the only authorities !



The individual characters or personal motivations for rebelling against the opaque and guarded stories, the perpetual lies, the twisted talk, the never-answering- directly-nor-clearly...the people's own personal perfections is not what is important

but the goal to FREE the truth from those who personally secretely benefit only themselves and their kin is commendable.

The power to do whatever it takes w/o physical human/ animal/plant violence is a new twist in our 'current affairs' ...as the nation-state govts prefer "WAR" and killings, maimings, destruction to helping us all make choices over our own lives and futures.

The cyber challenges are not "WAR" as it actually exists in so many places for so many eras...that is the name preferred by those who profit and gain by actual war tactics and the losses of others. Why do drama kings like to always use words like "battle" and "war" instead of more accurate meaningful words...just to get a rise that they cant get otherwise ? huh?

The "amateur" label is diminishing but not accurate either. Professional is not by degrees, titles, wealth, purchases or length of knowledge but by ABILITY to perform well, with damaging others in the process.

Professional is not a description "given" by another hoarding authoritiy but by proof that anyone can perform well, as well as those who want to claim the only privileges of being top and competent only for themselves.

The hackers [bad choice of words again,] are computer experts who are not employed by the usual corporations, tho some may be, and the people who KNOW HOW TO DO WHAT IS NECESSARY to share freedom of information and uncover the lies, deceits, cover-ups, withholding and mis-use of surveillance-gained private information are our heroes [male and female[.

And those who have 'other' professional expertise, as in law, in writing skills, in advertising manipulations used for POSITIVE instead of profit gains 'for the public' are also included in those who have not joined ranks with Wikileaks.

Finally an act of courage, a risk to face those who claim ownership of us all and our information [that is suppose to be 'ours' nit no longer so. Those who have the POWER to DEFINE or label us, anyone, can twist, turn, change or control those they word-over.

They claim authority. But when more of the people, of any nation-state-tribe, can claim to KNOW their own names, terms, acts, and where their money is spent...aha...that is a new world, not a new 'order' but a clever chaos that can now provide more options and choices to all

even those who cannot yet 'read' or get on 'internet' but are equally affected by what those who write can do to take from them too.

welcome to a New World, with less of the Old Ordered by limited so-owned authorities who hoard so much for themselves alone, including information about us and that affects us alllllll...

yeah !

and P S how many fancy long-termed elected USA & other officials have been in 'sex' scandals and continued to keep their lobby-paid positions anyhow?
