We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks ★★★½

An important and powerful story told in a fairly impartial way, We Steal Secrets shows how we let our fears and insecurities affect how we see the world. It shows the power of terror and ignorance to drive well-intended people (on all sides) to unfortunate results. And it shows the sometimes criminal lengths governments will go to to protect themselves from accountability.

The story is an education in democratic issues, and as lil' Tommy Jefferson said a long long time ago, "the cornerstone of democracy rests on the foundation of an educated electorate."
