Government is doing stuff without our notice. Should we know it, or it is better without or attention. That is the answer that is shaking the world right now Wikileaks.
First of all if you don’t know Wikileaks is a site that is published by a man called Julian Assange which he published 2 videos before. He published lots of articles; information in those article`s reveals the dirty secrets of the governments to people by the site and lets the journalists research the secrets.
Even though Wikileaks includes the correct information, I believe that it is not appropriate for the society. Sometimes some news has to be hidden from the society.
For example in the WW2 England has to send an army to border. The soldiers in the army were going to die but by sending this army England was going to gain time and that was going to be the most important factor for England in that war. If someone told the soldiers this they wouldn’t go, so they wouldn’t be able to win the war.
I’m not trying to say that Wikileaks is improper. I’m trying to say that they are publishing news without really thinking about it so much. The news that they are publishing causing big problems and it is not for an important reason.
İf everyone did the same thing. It would create chaos, just think everybody is writing whatever they think and media wouldn`t be able to believe their sources any more. İ`m repeating Wikileaks is not trustworthy; it could be done by anybody. We can be never being 100% sure. It will always have a false information chance. That`s because there is just too much information, tons of information we can`t know which to believe.
Julian Assange had a nice idea. He published them all at his site. So the whole world press and the journalists will search it. But the government`s said that most of the information was untrue. So this proves the imperfection of the Wikileaks.
8% of Wikileaks is about Turkey. It says that President Erdogan has 8 different bank accounts in Switzerland. People think that Erdogan is stealing money from his own country by his secret presidential account, which is only known by himself and cannot be questioned. President Erdogan said if anybody proves it. I will donate the money on the bank account to a charity brand. This is an info we will never be able to know for sure. How will we ever be able to verify? This is what I mean by ambiguous and redundant information.
To summarize Wikileaks is an important political development. Wikileaks is helping people by telling the government`s secrets. But it causing problems between the public and the government, by giving false information. So we can`t know it`s helping or not
