Merriam Webster defines civil disobedience as:  Refusal to obey government demands or commands and nonresistance to consequent arrest and punishment.

They define whistle-blower as: one who reveals something covert or who informs against another.

When the government is the entity that is being exposed, should the title of whistleblower, also require "and nonresistance to consequent arrest and punishment."?

  1. Very possibly since the resistance to (or evasion of) arrest gives the action the taint of treason as in the Julian Assange release of information.
