Wikileaks and Al Qaeda's Open Source Jihad are both open source insurgencies.
While there are obvious differences between the two, what's more interesting is how they are similar. Namely: as open source insurgencies both groups use systems disruption (the ability of small attacks to create outsized damage to large networks) as their means of attack.
While there are lots of ways to use systems disruption, one of the most common is to use it to impose a "tax" on the opponent's system. However, in this form of attrition, the goal isn't moral capitulation it is systemic collapse (a loss of cohesion).
I wrote an extended analysis of a paper by the NY Federal Reserve on how a "terrorism tax" could reduce the economic equilibrium of a city back in 2004 that may be of interest. Here's a bit of it:
A terrorism tax is an accumulation of excess costs inflicted on a city's stakeholders by acts of terrorism. These include direct costs inflicted on the city by terrorists (systems sabotage) and indirect costs due to the security/insurance/policy/etc. changes needed to protect against attacks. A terrorism tax above a certain level will force the city to transition to a lower market equilibrium (in other words: the city will shrink economically).
Julian Assange at Wikileaks sees this tax as a "secrecy tax" (read "Global Guerrilla: Julian Assange" for more on how Wikileaks conducts its insurgency):
The more secretive or unjust an organization is, the more leaks induce fear and paranoia in its leadership and planning coterie. This must result in minimization of efficient internal communications mechanisms (an increase in cognitive "secrecy tax") and consequent system-wide cognitive decline resulting in decreased ability to hold onto power as the environment demands adaption. Hence in a world where leaking is easy, secretive or unjust systems are nonlinearly hit relative to open, just systems. Since unjust systems, by their nature induce opponents, and in many places barely have the upper hand, mass leaking leaves them exquisitely vulnerable to those who seek to replace them with more open forms of governance.
Al Qaeda's open source jihad sees this tax as a "security tax" (read "Open Source Jihad" for more on how Al Qaeda uses open source warfare):
To bring down America we do not need to strike big. ...security phobia that is sweeping America, it is more feasible to stage smaller attacks that involve less players and less time to launch. Al Qaeda's Inspire e-Zine
