Yes. All it proved was governments are fucking everyone,
at top level programs. But not really much about
exact extent where how, in your phone, fridge, isp, world, etc.
The real pervasiveness of it all.
And the why behind it.
The documents.
Terrists? Really? Lol.
Creeping power grab over other humans with terrist excuse.
Typical sad humanity.
Or you tell us, is not a few buildings and thousand peoples
acceptable risk of freedom?
Here is the actuarial percent...
3000/7000000000*100 = .0000428500

Original wikileaks had it right... dump and let public analyze.
Though first and fine therein, WL was wrong to potentially
vision self as the only one. Just as all the new onion leaksites
say trust us to handle your leak.
No trust.
No rights.
No scoops.

New protocol is leak duplicates *widely*...
all across the i2p's, tor's, traditional journos, etc.
Those peoples will sort it out, in parallel.
As many voices, not one.
Not temple of guarded knowledge.
For that is same as secret itself.
But many rays of independant original interpretation.
