Australia stands with the Tyrants
Australia stands with the Tyrants

What would Mill think of silencing Wikipedia and making it a crime to spread the truth?

But I deny the right of the people to exercise such coercion, either by themselves or by their government. The power itself is illegitimate. The best government has no more title to it than the worst. It is as noxious, or more noxious, when exerted in accordance with public opinion, than when in opposition to it. If all mankind minus one were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind. Source page 18

Seems clear enough. As does the Australian Government view:

THE Gillard government has hardened its position on the WikiLeaks expose, saying it is illegal in Australia to obtain – or distribute – classified documents.

In the wake of the furore that followed Julia Gillard’s claim that the website’s release of thousands of secret US cables was illegal, Attorney-General Robert McClelland sought advice on whether WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange had broken any law. Yesterday, Mr McClelland said obtaining classified information without authority was an offence under Australian law.

“If you look at the fact that this information was held . . . on any description . . . on a secure and highly sensitive and classified database, which was clearly the property of the US, that information has apparently been accessed in an unauthorised manner, and has been provided, again presumably without authorisation, far and wide, then you would have to assume that there is a reasonable case that the act of sourcing the information did involve illegal events,” Mr McClelland said.

First the US, then China, Russia, North Korea everywhere! How on earth can this bunch of nincompoops tie their shoe laces in the morning? Collectively they have the intelligence of a gnat. If any of the Australian press does not come out condemning this Government they do not warrant the name journalist. They do not deserve to be a member of Western civilization. They are betraying their birthright. A birthright their forbears fought and died to gain and protect.
