From the author: I still live in a relatively spacious 1000 square foot apartment with my family of 4 (soon-to-be 5) and I’m not looking to downsize, but I can’t get enough of these tiny homes. I’m sure there’s something Thoreauvian in my attraction to the examined lives of those who inhabit them.

I continue to be impressed by how so many Tiny House People have been able to let go of their stuff and not despite, but because of this, find a certain calm. This very Buddhist/Gandhian/Stoic concept of non-attachment as a path to happiness is hardly new.

Over 2 millennia ago Socrates counseled, “The secret of happiness, you see, is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.”

Second only to Julian Assange, Bradley Manning is the most important figure in the Wikileaks controversy; his is alleged to have handed over hundreds of thousands of secret US war files and diplomatic cables. But, while the world watches Assange’s trial with baited breath, Manning is already wasting away in solitary confinement; this is the story of his daring intelligence heist. We hear the only recording of Bradley Manning’s voice and we listen to the logs of alleged conversations with the man who ultimately betrayed him.

    What is your definition of an American? We the people…not, we the government…whatever branch, who ever you are …. murder is murder. If you’ve done nothing wrong, the truth shouldn’t worry you. Manning ,
    brought forth some info, if you are government, military, whatever, it still doesn’t give you the right to be involved in criminal activity. It makes our country look bad, if that can be helped at this point.
