I would like to argue that we are NOT better off:
The classification of information, notably, “Classified” is detrimental to the emotional and spiritual development of our species. The continued propagation of secrecy only serves to keep us like children in that it disallows the experience that comes from knowing the truth of matters. How can we develop and evolve as a species when we are continually suspended and kept from the realities on the national and global scales? I argue that we are NOT better off in this, but rendered by those who claim to represent us as ultimately incapable of managing and processing what it is they afford themselves privy to.
