Headline: WIKILEAKS GETS INTO SECRET BANK ACCOUNTS/Records may be published soon — What is the CWG point of view on this? I am not sure what all the fuss is about. What’s wrong with transparency?
According to news reports, a former Swiss banker has turned over data on more than 2,000 high-profile politicians, celebrities and others. And so, soon, everyone may know about their financial holdings and maneuverings. Some people in this group are said to be afraid today of being charged with tax evasion in their various home countries if and when the data get released.
The news item brought up for me an interesting question. What kind of a world would we inhabit if everything was known by everyone? What if we lived in a completely transparent society? Do you think this would be good for society, or bad?
Conversations with God says that in highly enlightened societies everything is completely visible. There are no secrets of any kind. None whatsoever. Everything about everything is on the table. Nothing is kept quiet, there is no such thing as “hush-hush,” and there is simply no reason for anyone to keep anything from anyone else.
We have seen how so-called Sunshine Laws have made for better government, and it it clear to us that personal relationships in which all is said and known are the only kind that make sense. Love and Total Honesty go hand-in-hand, do they not?
SO WHAT DO YOU THINK? Could you live in a society in which everything about you was totally visible, completely known, and utterly transparent? What reason can you think of for having any secret from anyone — or anything “confidential” at all?
Let’s have a discussion. Is transparency a basic tenet of the highest spirituality? Let’s all talk. I’ll find great interest in your comments, below…
