That a group of people created a website to air confidential documents, have pissed off several governments and they are waging a dirty war.
2. Dirty war?
Yes, the governments in question are skirting the legislation because they can't find a way to stop this: accusation of rape, DDoS attacks on the website, taking away the Internet domain, taking away the web hosting, and more recently taking away the account to receive donations via the web. But the most serious are the voices calling for the elimination of the one who has been put forward as the head of Wikileaks.
3. But that is a dictatorship.
In today's terminology, a totalitarian regime that arises from the totalitarian and coordinated actions of several countries. As the Great Freire With what happened today with #wikileaks we are all living in China. Now we just need facebook to absorb the rest of the internet.
I know, but I would not like my e-mails to be published.
Neither do I, of course. But this is the staging of a struggle between worlds, a descending one in which power is concentrated in a few and an emerging one in which anyone can take power.
5. And who is the good guy?
No idea. I only tell you that the emergent is newer. Not because there have not been emerging systems before, which there have been and many, but because they have never been as fast as those based on the Internet.
6. And who will win?
If we break the neutrality of the Internet (even more so), communications could be redirected, cut, avoided, slowed down, discriminated against... If that happens, the telecoms will be taking away something we like, the ability to reach distant places quickly and cheaply. In the same way that happened when they showed us the mp3 music format and then took it away from us, many people took to the hills; just as it happened shortly after with the mpeg video format. In short, we will take what was taken away from us.
