A Glenn Greenwald quote re Bradley Manning NEW YORK magazine profile.

"The hallmark of political and media establishments is to depict meaningful dissent from its orthodoxies as a form of mental illness, and conversely, acceptance of (or at least acquiescence to) its orthodoxies as a requirement for mental health (even when, as is true now, its orthodoxies are themselves warped and ill)."

This kind of get-right-with-us behavior also makes sense in the context of poetry/literary communities.

Glenn Greenwald's full column about Manning, the NEW YORK profile and a miltary vet defending Manning can be found here:
