Lower vs Higher Law – Freedom of Press/Mind
Some have criticised Julian Assange as have the intent to circumvent security measures in order to assist the release of secrets. As opposed to being an independent recipient.
Legally this could be a valid argument – but there is another way to look at this.
The mere fact that the secrets exist in the first place means that there is something to hide, something that the public have a right to see.
Often we see things linearly where the only logic is what is presented to use as a Law – when is order for freedom to exist we often need to break a lower law in order that a higher law, being freedom, may prevail.
