Proecthesis


Proecthesis (pro-ek’-the-sis): When, in conclusion, a justifying reason is provided.

Clearly, some level of leaking is permissible. It gives us information where we need to make the decisions we need to make. Along with everything else, within certain limitations, leaking is a good thing in Western liberal democracies.

In sum, we need clarity. We need transparency. We need all the information we can get so that we can be an informed electorate. Leaks serve that interest. Don’t plug the leaks! Set up parameters & let the information flow.
