It is significantly important to consider and discuss the philosophical study of ethics before basing judgment on WikiLeaks and Hacktivism activities. The recent intense pressure from the US government over WikiLeaks activities clearly demonstrates the level of unethicalness. Moreover, the studies explain that the moral actions are based according to the customs of the community in a specified area of interest. In order to ensure that some of the rights of expression from different ethical groups in the society are not violated, supporting arguments are openly displayed to the public.
