Abstract: The whistleblower is a critic of her community, a community regulator claiming that a set of core values, choice principles, social practices or statuses have been violated by leadership in a community, organization, or institution. My intent in this presentation is to examine the particular status of whistleblower in various communities with the goal of understanding the regulatory statuses in communities that serve to maintain, sustain, and advance the life of communities. Tony Putman contributed major papers and volumes regarding community, organizations and the life and death of communities and in these he noted the kinds of conditions that exist to understand the viabilities of communities from the smallest two person dyads to the largest institutions. I plan here to examine how the emergence of and the plight of whistleblowers gives us insight into community regulation.
