The US empire tries to censor and it will fail

06/12/2010

It is by now quite clear that the US is behind efforts to smother WikiLeaks, see this link

but why? Democracy is based on the idea that all people should have access to information, All that is happening is that an internet site is distributing that information gratis. So what? If democracies have so much to hide then they are not democracies.

I can see little difference to what is happening now to what happened when Beijing smothered an outbreak of democracy with its tanks.

The US does not rule the world. Neither does WikiLeaks. We do. People. Individuals.

Those who placed their trust in President Obama must be mighty disappointed.
