We can have a discussion on the short comings of such a system, but your premise is both naive and foolish.
No, I believe that WE have that right as a nation of people that our government represents. And without information as to what in the ****ing hell our government is ACTUALLY doing, we the people cannot make informed decisions about who we want representing us. Our government is built on lies and coverups and it's long since been time for that to change. In the end, the lies and the coverups hurt US. So yes, we DO have the right to know what in the ****ing hell our employees are doing and saying on our behalf. Anyone who thinks otherwise has fallen victim to blindly following authority.

Maybe YOU blindly believe that everything our government does is good and just and truthful. But I do not. Why? Because they've proven time and again the opposite. They've proven time and again that they lie, lie, and then lie some more and will continue to do so as long as they can get away with it. It's time we - their employers - call them on their bull****.

Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.
