Would a world in which no information were kept secret be a better or a worse world? The creators of the internet pushed forth ideas of open source and collaboration just as research in math, computer science, physics, and chemistry has traditionally been open.
One could on the other hand argue that the existence of "closed" / classified information may be beneficial to society as a whole as opposed to just to those who possess and exploit this "secret" information. But how would you go about arguing that? What examples and abstract arguments/ideas can one coffee up with?
