DescriptionInternational Ethics Essay on censorship and wikileaks
Censorship: Wikileaks CableGate!
In today’s society, the ‘correct’ ethics and morality are considered to be the main factors of becoming a decent human being. Yet, ironically, what is seen to be ‘good’ is only judged and considered by the ‘Super Powers’. The truth had always been measured as a superior action. Yet, today the truth can also be considered as an off beam action, which may even lead you to many consequences including the result of one being trapped behind bars.

The life we live is not solid, based on pen and paper hence; one can see that this is not a simple issue. Today, there is nothing stopping the people in power from censorship not only censoring the website but the idea as well, as people can argue that on a normative human rights approach; yes one can have the freedom of speech yet one must think of the feelings of others and respect “secrets”, or else if not wanted to be secretive it would have been told to the world.
