This week we have seen the trial of Bradley Manning expose a deeply troubled person who somehow took the risk of leaking info that, if seen could alter our consciousness about the war and foreign policy. Now he faces a lifetime of hurt. Perhaps he will also always remember that you can draw a bright line between his act and the Arab Spring, and all the springs sweeping the earth. The Occupiers like to quote Margaret Mead :”Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world”. Manning is a case in point.
