With so much talk in the media about Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden and whether or not what they did was justified, it got me thinking about the “grey” area of whistleblowing. When is it okay to be a whistleblower? Who decides what wrongs are worthy or allowed to be outed? How is it decided to punish or reward someone for whistleblowing?
These are questions I’ve grappled with in my own mind, and as of now, I don’t have any answers. This composition represents the inner turmoil and unease I feel in trying to rationalize all of this.
