The Wikileaks philosophy

The idea behind making all this confidential data public is twofold:

1) Embarrass immoral organizations (governments, businesses, etc.) by airing their dirty laundry. The public can than make better decisions about said organizations.

2) Cause secretive organizations to become even more secretive to combat leaks. Excessive secrecy will eventually reduce the effectiveness of the same organizations and open them up to competition and replacement by more open and morally superior alternatives.
