Information During Wartime

Should the government restrict the public's "right to know" during wartime?

  • Apr 12 2014: In the USA, government's restricting the public's right to know has gotten us into all of our wars. I believe in freedom of the press and openness in government. I do not want to exchange my freedom for security. There is no security, in the context that government promises. There is freedom though - as long as one understand that true freedom bears no resemblance to the serfdom that Americans now call "FREEDOM!"
