‘What happens to society in the absence of an alternative, counter-narrative to that of the national security state?’ (My presentation at the Center for Investigative Journalism in London)

Below are a few of the questions that I raised in a recent presentation that I gave at The Centre for Investigative Journalism (CIJ)​ in London (video below):

  • Five years after Manning's leaks are we capable of deliberation and thoughtfulness?

  • Are we capable of human agency in the age of leaks and myriad weak social ties?

  • What happens to society in the absence of an alternative, counter-narrative to that of the national security state?

  • Can we rely on Silicon Valley publishers to groom experts who can provide a counter-narrative to the national security state in the near term and the future?

I also discuss the journalistic methods that I have employed and the lessons that I have learned covering censored and suppressed news (with a particular emphasis on the Chelsea Manning trial).
