Never before, have so few kept secrets from so many.
We live in a world on a precipice. Maybe the precipice. There are so many existential issues confronting our society today, it’s hard to know which to pay serious attention to, and which to tune out. Financial breakdown, terrorism, political corruption, even the theory that a giant planet, traveling in a 3,600 year orbit around our sun, there’s a lot to worry about today. The good news (if that’s an appropriate way to look at it), is that regardless of the issue, someone somewhere knows what’s going on. Many of them have a whistle in their hand, and some of them are good people who want the rest of us to know the truth. A few of those good people have the courage necessary to blow their whistle and warn us.
But how many do? Not enough.
I am a whistleblower, and despite the fact it cost me a career I’d worked hard to attain, I believe it was the right thing to do, but I made a serious mistake.
