In your twenties, if you have any amount of complexity in your childhood, or any trauma that you haven’t dealt with, it comes out. That’s why you have a lot of artists that don’t make it through.
Brooklyn’s iconic Clock Tower on Main Street, New York, was transformed into a jaw-dropping triplex penthouse, in the trendy DUMBO (down under the Manhattan bridge overpass) neighborhood in Brooklyn. The 6,813 square feet space gives you 360-degree view, but the most magnificent detail has to be the 14-ft glass clocks on every wall.
You keep using that word, I don’t think it means what you think it means
Edward Snowden isn’t a whistleblower and neither is Bradley Manning.
Being a whistleblower means you are exposing illegality or some kind of wrong-doing.That dude who worked for Phillip Morris who found out that studies used to prove smoking didn’t cause cancer were doctored and faked, he was a whistleblower. Daniel Ellsworth was a whistleblower who proved the Pentagon was lying to Congress and the public about casualties in Vietnam.
At best, Snowden and Manning are exposing legal things that the administration(s) have been doing without the benefit of spin and PR.
I’m trying to figure out why these two dogooders irk me so much and that’s probably it. I think they expose the power that PR actually plays (one I was dismissive of when I worked in the same field). Mostly I wanted decisions to be made using data and instead we really truly make every decision on which side can call the other Hitler the most times, under a self imposed deadline.
So there, Hitler.
