Freedom is under attack (as always)

As you all know Wikileaks, which this time represents freedom of speech, is under attack.

Many centres of power have coordinated their forces to stop Wikileaks. Acts like this has been happening from the begining of human history (as far we know).
Secrets give power, and many people love power.
Wikileaks tells a few secrets, and maybe it devitalizes a few centres of power. For them Wikileaks is an enemy.
But, for us (the common people) that we are much more powerful than those centres of power, Wikileaks is an ally.
Secrets can give power to small group of people to control all the other people.
Secrets had created kings and emperors, had destroyed ideas, democracy and many other common goods.

Wise is the supreme good.
The source of truth and the truth as knowledge are essential ingredients to reach wise.
If you believe that wise and knowledge must be a common good and a common aim, then help and protect everyone (or everything) that spread the truth and the knowledge.
