  4. NW2M0E  table of contents overall for remainder: ‘definition’ + ‘post history additional’

  5. NW2M0U ‘definition’:
    1. NW0JT3 A whistleblower I define
      1. NW2QZW as
        1. NW0LES essentially a person doing righteous exposure of illicit activity which is the most dangerous in terms of others supporting them doing so as least when they start,
        2.  NW0LEM  specifically a person, who typically-solo else with no more than say 2 additional cohorts, exposes illicit activity early, as typically-first, so the problems can be corrected, even though that’s not the person’s normal job, or effectively nobody else having the job is doing there as they should, and even though there it is likely the bad doers will respond to such exposure and usually just any perceived risk of it by doing significant reprisal (so more bad) against the person to the degree that most people seeing the illicit don’t report it.
      2. NW2QZ7   since I found no other definition which is nearly complete
        1. NW4DN3   after checking
          1. NW4DNM  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whistleblower (from #NW4EDA find 3)
            1. NW4E0P  which  currently has ‘a person who exposes any kind of information or activity that is deemed illegal, dishonest, or not correct within an organization that is either private or public.[2]  .. Whistleblowers also face stiff reprisal/retaliation from those who are accused or alleged of wrongdoing. .. Whistleblowers face legal action, criminal charges, social stigma, and termination from any position, office, or job. [next paragraph] Whistleblowers frequently face reprisal, sometimes at the hands of the organization or group which they have accused, sometimes from related organizations, and sometimes under law. ’
              1. NW4DXU  which has shortcomings
                1. NW4DY2  ‘deemed illegal, dishonest, or not correct’ seems can be more just called  ‘illicit’
                2. NW4DZV   ‘information or’
                  1. NW4E0C   I 1st saw here
                  2. NW4E1C   is tempting to include to ensure completeness
                  3. NW4E1R   I suspect {inappropriate as information itself is not fundamentally illicit, rather the use is}
                3. NW4E8T  ‘within an organization that is either private or public’ appears unnecessary
                4. NW4E9A   several necessary criteria not mentioned or later mentioned as optional.
                5. NW4EKE   mixes in (so clusters with) lots of optional or/and consequential aspects.
                6. NW4EQ7  ‘Whistleblowers face..’ is often but NOT necessarily a consequence, indeed it can be 0 or more not ‘and’ so all
                7. NW4EXJ   ‘Whistleblowers frequently face reprisal’ –{not ‘frequently’ but ‘always’} and {‘reprisal’ has a poor def}
          2. NW4EDA https://www.google.com/search?q=define+”whistleblower” ‘s Google definition
            1. NW4EEA   currently ‘a person who informs on a person or organization engaged in an illicit activity.’
              1. NW4EF5  which has shortcomings
                1. NW4EG0  several necessary criteria not mentioned
                2. NW4EG9   not just ‘engaged’ but may instead/also occur in future or/and past
                3. NW4EIC   ‘a person or organization’ is universal so can be omitted.
          3. NW4F2Z  http://www.thefreedictionary.com/whistleblower (from #NW4EDA find 2) has
            1. NW4F50  dictionary definition 1
              1. NW4F58  currently ‘One who reveals wrongdoing within an organization to the public or to those in positions of authority: “The Pentagon’s most famous whistleblower is hoping to get another chance to search for government waste” (Washington Post).
            2. NW4F6J  thesaurus definition
              1. NW4F6S  currently ‘an informant who exposes wrongdoing within an organization in the hope of stopping it; “the law gives little protection to whistleblowers who feel the public has a right to know what is going on”; “the whistleblower was fired for exposing the conditions in mental hospitals”
          4. NW4F74   more TBA
      3. NW0J7T   So as can be inferred by that (the definition), whistleblowing is a dangerous job, by a typically-solo self-appointed soldier or perhaps equivalently a very good-Samaritan, who sometimes perishes from  the job, but other times routinely saves society when unfortunately few others will, because doing job requires someone brave or foolish enough to fight a righteous battle typically alone, at least at the start
      1. NW0LEC biggest recent example is Eric Snowden, who risked & still risks near-certain wrongful imprisonment by the US for exposing that the US government has been secretly seriously spying on all phone & email users here (so essentially everyone), which then resulted in the spying being reduced.
    2. NWA1NW   protection
      1. NW0J6B    So with normal whistleblowing, the people doing bad regularly search for info on the possible whistleblowers to reprisal-hurt them;
        1. NWA0Z2 so especially apply rule NW9WNK
        2. NWA2EF   more TBA
    3. NWA28W   rightful
      1. NWA2A3   ‘In the case of many like Edward Snowden, whistleblowing is seen as the last ethically right thing to do.’ says Wikipedia
        1. NWA2DM   this feels mostly if not entirely right.
      2. NWA2E4   more TBA
    4. NWA10Q much more TBA
