Interesting insight. Machiavelli’s comment shows why the gig economy has such problems. I’m a boomer and I know my job loyalty left when my job of 18 years dumped me into it. Everyone has a duty to speak the truth to power, but when necessary to report the actions of power to the people. The actions of the CIA NSA etc were illegal AND immoral. Withholding the reality that Russians were hacking US elections, THAT would have been wrong, even if not illegal. I respect them for believing that the American people needed to know these things, and being willing to take the consequences.
