oh thought there would be a 3rd choice: Maybe depending on the secret :)

yes, I would tell. There are too many secrets these days in the government. They think they are above the law.

I would tell. I have told. The problem is, so many people are so befuddled and/or stupid, they don't want to hear it.

How I wish I can edit polls.

so you are not afraid that it can put your life in danger?

Randajad_The_Traveller wrote on August 28, 2014, 11:34 PM

Yeah the government will be able to say you are lying or even say you are crazy. Its really a dangerous situation

If you share something like that, you are then made to look crazy in the press. For instance, recently a researcher suggested that he had faked information in a paper he wrote that suggested there was NO link between vaccination and autism and that in reality there was but the information had been suppressed because the pharmaceutical companies didn't want to lose their profits. This man has now dropped out of sight! Once you do that, you are vilified in the press, government goes all out to demonise you and your position and you drop out of sight very quickly. It's not only chemicals. For instance, the miners, and various ethnic and cultural groups have been demonised at various times by the press and governments for their own purposes. This is not to say that you should not reveal something BUT you will find at the end of the day, nothing much has changed, except that you are now no longer to be found. :(

It aint just the government. It's the entire system which lies to everyone. And, let's not forget "Stockholm Syndrome." The people do not want to open their eyes. :)

That sounds very scary and grim. Its sad but true, I remember about a guy who tried revealing a government secret and suddenly he have rape and murder cases againts him. I am not saying he is innocent but I think he is framed. Those cases happened to silence him.

I would also go for the *secret* third choice: it depends on the secret, and it would depend on how much it could change my life to have it be known. For instance, if I had been in Edward Snowden's shoes, I probably would not have had the cajones to make the choices he did, even though I think he did something that needed to be done.

I actually think I'd be likely to keep silent. I strongly believe in transparency, and those who have read my posts (especially on the other site) will have seen that I don't pull any punches. But just because something has been kept from the public, doesn't mean that revealing it would make things better.

Yes I would tell. Big brother should have no secrets.

It would depend on the secret. Would it do any one any good to reveal it?

LeaPea2417 wrote on October 5, 2014, 5:49 PM

I would risk my life and tell. The Government is so arrogant and cocky, they need whistle blowers when they do wrong. They should not be exempt from punishment if they keep secrets and do wrong.

Randajad_The_Traveller wrote on October 14, 2014, 4:47 PM

I think before being a whistle blower , its better to have our lovedones immigrate somewhere else.

Randajad_The_Traveller wrote on October 14, 2014, 4:49 PM

Maybe something to do with corruption or maybe something crazy like aliens.

Randajad_The_Traveller wrote on October 14, 2014, 4:54 PM

well I am not popular here I guess, thats why I am not getting many views and most of my articles are niche.

Randajad_The_Traveller wrote on October 14, 2014, 4:55 PM

I know, His life changed and he was seen as a traitor after all the things he revealed

Randajad_The_Traveller wrote on October 14, 2014, 4:56 PM

I think corruption and evil plans should be revealed but crazy things like aliens or human experiments, that will be a harder one to reveal
