Submission + - Is "Open Government" actually possible? 1

olyar writes: All of the Wikileaks coverage — and their insistence that they are trying to promote "open government" got me to thinking. We take for granted that our government has to have secrets, but do they really? What if made it our policy that what you see is what you get? What if we openly published all of our military capacity and strategies, were blunt about our plans to deal with difficult world leaders, etc? Could that actually work?

All power corrupts, but we need electricity.
