Wikileaks has always been the enemy of every side in the US government. From publishing Hillary Clinton’s emails during the election to the Chelsea Manning military leaks, Wikileaks has always stirred up controversy from its inception. The recent CIA leaks dubbed “Vault 7” revealed a lot about the CIA’s domestic spying capabilities, similar to the Edward Snowden Guardian leaks which shocked the world when it was revealed the NSA has been spying on domestic citizens for years.
While those leaks reignited the debate about national security and civil liberties, the recent CIA leaks arguably have not made people as shocked as before. In an age where domestic surveillance by governments is seen as a fact of life, it is interesting to see that people were not surprised when they heard that the CIA had capabilities to use various consumer electronic products from TVs to other smart electronics to spy on people.
In a time when confidence and trust in established institutions is fading, this can be a slippery slope towards a more illiberal society in which people are more and more fearful of each other. Many political scientists and historians view these institutions as vital components of society that keep people together and prevent extreme polarism. However, as party politics shifts into an even more divided direction, it is likely that we are to face many challenges in the near future because of this.
