Plasmana, do you not think the government would GREATLY benefit by rather curing loathsome diseases? They have everything to gain, and absolutely nothing to lose, by "allowing a cure to be created and spread". What possible motive could they have for squashing a cure? Do you mean they publicly fund it and yet secretly work against themselves? If they are so powerful why have they any need to hide anything? Do you not believe that laws concerning free speech and probable cause are adhered to? You will not be arrested for voicing an opinioin online about the government, as long as you don't threaten anyone or do anything illegal. I somehow doubt that you know the government's dark secrets. Or governments', for that matter.

They do many great benefits, and because they are so powerful, they can do pretty much anything they want to do - and they have some dark secrets... I can send you a PM of one if you want...

xD ROFLOL. If they're so powerful, and can do pretty much anything they want to...why would they hide anything...? Um, sure. Why not. I would be interested to see what exactly you are referring to.

Is it not true that sometimes power comes FROM hiding something?

It is not true, at least not in all cases. Military power, for instance-superior firepower is superior firepower whether or not it is secret.

yep. However, acting like you have inferior firepower, maybe you can get the other side overconfident and have a more complete victory.

But the point is power does not neccessarily come from the concealment of information.

FaqMan (author)Lithium Rain2009-01-09

Concealment of information is meant to keep the enemy guessing what you having and keeping the public under control because if the public learned of some of the governments secrets who knows what would happen?

This does not equal power, however. If anything, such a theory points towards the government not having enough power to "control the public".

Please note that I do not endorse any position, side or government. I am merely pointing out that secrecy is not neccessarily essential to having power.

Actually not true i like to bring up Richard Nixon again because he is a good example of seceracy going bad when his secret was revealed to the public it went into chaos and empeached him. So secreacy is one of the keys to power just not one of the main ones.
