WikiLeaks provided a wakeup call

What the cables reveal are the inner workings of empire. Diplomats are essentially human extensions of the state.

WikiLeaks was the straw that broke the camel’s back. We need to see the ruling elite for what it is and what better way than when their servants think they’re talking alone together? Diplomats, bear in mind we know what you really think.

Remember, these are the same people that supply information that contributes to people being blown up somewhere in the endless wars being waged by capital around the planet.

The release of these cables is an historic event for they forever transform the relationship between the state and its citizens. They blow away the illusion that our leaders are honorable men and women rather than mere servants of capital.

  1. The most important legacy of the WikiLeaks affair will almost surely be the rapidly escalating cyberwar that the group’s renegade disclosures have sparked.

    At stake are issues of free speech, censorship, privacy, piracy, sovereignty and corporate power.
