And you can hardly call those countries democracies.

The point of wikileaks is to investigate and uncover what things are done by organisations/governments that are completely formed legally/democratically and for which they didnt get a mandate.

Really, you have the wrong idea about what the goal or idea of wikileaks is.

And the fact that you are baffled by that there are no chinese or NK or whatever documents only states that.

Its not about how many crimes and authrocities are commited in a country, but its about informing the electorate how many crimes and authrocities are comitted by organisations formed by that electorate and for which they lack the mandate.
Its about finding the non free aspects of the free world.
Finding the non free aspects in a dictatorship is well... carrying coals to Newcastle.
I don’t get it? The West has freedom of the press and you act like nothing was ever exposed, whistle blown or reported on before Wikileaks/Assange came along.

How many average Chinese or NK citizens have access to Western news sources? Or Russians for that matter? Yes they are the ones most in need of a WikiLeaks
organization and a way to get it to the average citizen in countries like those.

Again we are far far apart on our thinking here..........
