The sentence Bradley Manning received,and the methods of his prosecution, reflects a desperate attempt by Capitalists to maintain exploitative discipline in the workplace. Do you agree?
Noam Chomsky and Richard Wolff often define the employee proposition as being a suspension of human and civil rights, even an organized tyranny. The military exceeds the regular situation somewhat, by bordering upon indentured servitude. Edward Snowden can also be described as a disobedient employee. How different are they than the painter who is ordered by his boss to dump solvent in a storm drain? Too bad Hannah Arendt can't be here to discuss banal evil. Can Richard relate the tensions of disobeying employers to our larger economy. of course WSDEs rarely encounter this contradiction.
