As soon as the official secrets commission ended, it was known what had been said in it, despite the fact that its members are obliged to keep the secret. This reinforces the idea that Benjamin Franklin expressed by saying: “Three could keep a secret if two are dead.” And in the Commission there were ten and all alive.
It’s not easy to keep a secret. A three-year-old child does not know how to do it for the simple reason that he does not understand the social consequences of revealing it. As he grows older he understands it and when he reaches adolescence he keeps them from his own family, although many times in vain because “the eyes do not know how to keep a secret.”
Among the ten members of the Commission, all adults, two had been spied on. What a surreal situation!
