Daniel Phinney Posted over 1 year ago Which is more important, right to know or state secrets? I wonder about this often, I usually think that people should have the right to know all things, all truth, and anyone who is hindering this is obviously guilty of something and so they desire the details of it hidden. I admit though that I can see many scenarios when certain information could be misunderstood by large portions of the population, especially if it is technical in nature. This could lead to dangerous attitudes developing out of ignorance instead of any real understanding. Conclusively though, I must say, transparency is of the up most importance as it allows for innocence or guilt being decided by any observer and out of real information, not a view portrayed or skewed by censorship.
