While the previous chapter showed that the anti–drug war movement is trying to build new alternative worlds by creating open communities of whoever arrives, this chapter shows that enacting what is called disclosive freedom is a central component of this political process. Disclosive freedom differs significantly from sovereign freedom in that it entails letting-be rather than (self)-mastery and control. Focusing on three detailed ethnographic examples—one each from New York, Copenhagen, and Vancouver—this chapter illustrates how the anti–drug war movement is slowly creating new open communities by enacting this disclosive freedom in their political, ethical, and everyday activity with one another and those who they engage in their political struggle.
