Bradley Manning and the Meaning of Bravery | ZERO ANTHROPOLOGY

This whole experience of the last three years formed a key part of what I argued elsewhere is a new research method for an anthropology that studies up and takes elites, powerful authorities, and military officials as the focus of its study of power and secrecy, or what I called “WikiLeakism”. Having said that, no number of years in prison for Bradley Manning can ever reverse that. The state, on the basis of rights arrogated to itself, now exercises its right to cruelty and punishment. Our job, unlike that of the frauds and quislings who dreamed of launching or supporting the failed-from-the-start “OpenLeaks,” is to make sure that Bradley’s sacrifice is not in vain.
