Gv Krishnan Posted over 1 year ago Should a country/government give all its information to the citizens/public? If no, what information should the country not release? Even the most open govt. withholds info. on a work in progress. Open-ended approach may well attract meaningful ideas that help solve problems. But more often a scheme or project in the works, in an open environment, evokes negative inputs, the negativity of which can kill inventive spirit and motivation.
