Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, and Chelsea Manning are often simply considered “whistleblowers” whose activities involved diffusing information. But, in fact, they are much more than that. They are the protagonists of a movement that is questioning the dispositives defining our present. Their very lives express something that must be heard: the advent of a new political subject. As such, they enable us to interrogate received ways of thinking about politics, democracy and resistance and to imagine other modes of relation to the law, the nation, citizenship, and the state. How are we to address the emergence of something new in the political sphere?
