Rand Paul calls for repeal of Espionage Act after Trump FBI search (Axios.com)

Less than a week after the FBI's search of former President Trump's Mar-a-Lago home, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) called for the repeal of the Espionage Act on Saturday, saying it was an "egregious affront to the 1st Amendment."

Read the rest here.

=======================

It would seem as though there are Republicans out there who would damned near repeal the entire Constitution to spare the sensibilities (what few there are) of a certain former president. I wonder if Rand Paul thinks this country and its government could survive with all its secure materials and documents made public.

Personally, I tend to think NOT ... and I hope Senator Paul finds himself getting blowback up the wazoo!

They are all in total brainwashed idiocy.

I wonder if Rand Paul thinks this country and its government could survive with all its secure materials and documents made public.

But it would make the world a better place. Few governments would survive such a transparency onslaught.

Onyango, I have to point out something I made a considerable point about back on Atheist Nexus, some years ago: The United States is an OPEN society, for the large portion.  The Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China are NOT, nor are they likely to become so in the foreseeable future.  Idiot children like Julian Assange and Edward Snowden thought that they would be improving things by revealing US secrets, but NOT making any effort to unveil anything from Moscow or Beijing.  This.  Is. MADNESS. All such action does is expose the US to harm while in no way compromising the other side of the equation.

As a person who was briefly trusted to operate in a highly secure environment (The NSA's Special Projects Laboratory) because I had demonstrated to my customers that I was trustworthy, I find such a proposal foolish and insulting.

On this I agree with you, Loren. If only one country does it, they are in danger. If every country does it, those governments can't survive. The masses would revolt.

We know Russia and China do evil things but we hold the west and especially the US to a higher standard and when the US breaks international law it's right that it should be exposed. Revealing security secrets just for the sake of it is however wrong.

It is because we have asymmetry of knowledge between countries is the other reason we go to war all the damn time. Do away with govt secrets and the reasons to go to war become almost nonexistent

I don't think it's just that, Onyango.  For example, I would rather NOT see the details of how to build a thermonuclear device in the public domain.  Oh, the basics are likely available on the internet ... but NOT the subtleties.  A forcible leveling of the playing field would be disastrous, IMHO, and human beings as a species need to get a LOT more mature than we are at this moment for such a possibility to become practicable.
