Imagine a society in which the rich lived twice as long.
You don't have to imagine it. The rich live significantly longer than the poor today. In fact, that has always been the case.

But is Wikileaks the entity that gets to decide what should and shouldn't be classified?
Which entity should decide this? Why would it be more qualified to do so than Wikileaks or anyone else?
Which is worse? Something not supposed to be classified NOT being leaked, or something SUPPOSED to be classified being leaked? I, and most people, would say the latter.
Well, tolerating the former leads directly to a system where people with the power to classify things are not accountable to anyone and where nobody knows what they do. Which, in turn, always leads to all sorts of utterly horrible things. The latter seems to happen quite often recently and what horrible things that have happened because of it? I don't know about most people but I quite definitely think the former is much much worse.
