Light is the best Policeman

Everybody has a secret but the only secrets I loved were female and the handbags they were kept in. Of course I could not ask the indiscreet question: could have a look in your bag? There are a lot of secrets everywhere and they have become strategic weapons. There will always be secrets as long as people try to have an advantage over others.

In the Western Democratic World journalism is meant to inform the public about state secrets and stop the disgrace but the term embedded and the fact that journalists are being hired speak volumes. Western Democracies are at stake and people like Snowden who inform the public about state scandals are being persecuted.

This ist the death of transparency, the death of democracy. Louis Brandeis says in Harpers Weekly: sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light is the most efficient policeman. The black budget of the US was 52.6 billion dollars in 2013, the German black budget was 615 million Euros in 2015. Viel Spaß.
