Do you think Wikileaks should be shut down?

No. Wikleaks is the price you pay for a free and open society. The demands of a free press uncensored by government requires that the United Sates (any government really) take the occasional hit. The free press is most effective and, often, only tool we have to stand against the tryanical tendencies of government and to protect maximum civil liberty.

But, that doesn't mean I respect Julian Assange, Wikileaks or agree with what they have done. My assessment of the man and his work is pretty obvious given my recent rants. What has been done is irresponsible and no effort was made to consider the ethical implications or unintended consequences of such actions.

For a kiss I will answer all your questions.
