The truth hurts

Modern media and technology is often embraced, but as we digest the information being revealed on the WikiLeaks website we have to consider if anyone involved has clean hands.

Imagine having your secret and private diary revealed to your family and friends. Comments you’ve made that were only intended to get closure and remove frustrations would have your toes curling with embarrassment.

Now continue to develop that vision as a top politician revealing how you feel about your allies. Honesty is the best policy? We’d like to think so but as the leaks threaten to bring individuals to their knees, how much truth can we take?
