Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities. Truth isn't.

- Mark Twain

Secret Power

Think about what the government can do by declaring something a secret. If the government commits a crime and classifies it as a secret, anyone who speaks the truth will have the full weight of the government come down upon them. If the government averts the constitution in a secret fashion, the secret is given more weight than the government action. Secrets are a mighty sword in the government's power to do wrong, even illegal wrong. Secrets are a powerful tool for government to use against its people. But does it have to be so?

In order for there to be secrets, people must keep secrets, support secrets, become complicit in the punishment of those who reveal secrets, so to take away the power of secrets, people must choose to not participate in the whispering and demand that truth be allowed to be spoken.

Very, very few secrets are necessary, so on the scale of liberty, we must push toward no secrets...if we are to consider ourselves any semblance of a free society. Secrets are a disease, growing silently and always deadly.

Secrets are dangerous, because the keepers of secrets are dangers.


When we stop the secrets we will see who is really behind the curtain.

It is time to consider why a man must risk all to tell the truth and why so, so few are willing to risk anything: The Whistleblower
