Richard King (film Director)
"Stopping leaks is a new form of censorship."
Julian Assange (wikileaks)

Kate Adie (War correspondent)
"As a culture I see us as presently deprived of subtleties. The music is loud, the anger is elevated, sex seems lacking in sweetness and privacy."
Shelley Berman (Comedian)
"Far from being the basis of the good society, the family, with its narrow privacy and tawdry secrets, is the source of all our discontents."
Edmund Leach (Scientist)
