Well foretold.

Disclosure of national security secrets has become a cult as 
addictive and crippling as non-disclosure, NDA v. leaks. Both suffer 
excessive secrecy as if wedded in a vainglorious conspiracy to claim 
to protect and reveal much but carefully dispense only that which 
buttresses their information and power control, eyeing and emulating 
one another to guarantee mutual benefits.

Neither fully serves the populace, instead disdains consumers, 
propagandas for product, adopts one another's practices, revolving 
doors their practitioners, aided and abetted by governments 
pretending to act on behalf of their subjects. Prosecutors, judges, 
legislators, executives, lockstep with each other and with their 
ostensible opponents, especially the governmentally-privileged 
wealthy, NGOs, journalists and manufactures of weaponry, hardware and 
software, paid and free.

Periodic orchestrated campaigns of Ellsbergs, Mannings, Snowdens, et 
al, signal breakaway insiders but merely confirm these are standard 
operating procedures for limited disclosure to boost reputations of 
disclosers and non-disclosers.

The Internet promised a change with free software, free access, free 
discourse, and immediately became dominated by practitioners of 
duplicity, openness concealing secrecy, deceptions long established. 
Witness this very forum and its vanity description on Wikipedia.

Or more telling, the Web, Wikimedia and Archive, kissing cousins of 
Google, SM, aggregators, bots, Tor, Deep Web, all dancing to the tune 
of TLAs with Terms of Service, privacy policies, redactions, 
omissions, secure submissions, open source vetting, which baldly 
disclose cooperation with authorities, trust us even so.

This is all well known and belabored, hustled and lipsticked, mea 
culpa. Still, there are possibilities for avoiding the domination of, 
and manipulation by, secretkeepers and their complicit opponents. One 
is to keep away from the most popular and promoted infosec, comsec, 
techsec, privacy, indeed, sec in all its permuations, especially that 
associated with natsec -- the civil-military-commercial-NGO occult.

Secrecy and leakage, don't believe anything about them, same coin.
