Reblog: Parrhesia, Accountability and the Drone

This is a piece written in the brilliant literature and politics journal Black & BLUE a few months back. It will not serve as an introduction exactly, but it does throw up just a small number of the many ideas and problems that I wish to explore and investigate via this blog. Transparency and accountability are two fundamental principles that are immediately obscured by the drone in both its civilian and its military uses, not only in the sense that drones are part of operations for which governments and other institutions and corporations claim that secrecy is a necessity, but in a plethora of other ways.

Start with this, and we will go from there.
