Yes, defacing facebook memorials is really fighting the good fight. Man, I wish I were as cool as those guys. Wake up. They're doing nothing to change the system, except highlighting security flaws that won't be available next time. You'd think the war on drugs would have made abundantly clear that there will always be businesses making money in an enterprise as long as there's a market, whether that market is cocaine, rubber bullets, 50mm cannon rounds, or CCTVs. If there's demand, there will be supply.freedomthinker said:
Are you people really such spoiled little brats ? These guys are risking their asses by actually DOING something and you have the audacity to criticize them ? You mostly sit all day at your ****ing computers and complain apparently. These guys have the balls to guy against the governments that screw you over on an hourly basis. How screwed up are you guys ?
I don't think you have a good grasp on what is going on. What part of anything they are doing do you think is already legal?Guest said:
It seems the more Anonymous attacks the more restrictions will be put on everyone. Anonymous is only providing a reason for the government to enact more restrictive laws.
Wow, I guess Mark Zuckerberg really does come to your house, put a gun to your head, and make you sign up for Facebook. Get your head out of your ***. What you're basically saying is that it's okay to destroy cemetaries because they have to quarry the stone used for grave markers.freedomthinker said:
So your saying that its better to do nothing ? Plus you do realize that Facebook sells private information to corporations, right ? The idea is to promote resistance, for ordinary people to realize that capitalism and corporate entities have failed a long time ago. All we are doing is let the corporations buy the governments and let them **** us daily. All you said basically is that there is no hope and just let's go with the flow and let them screw people over. If there is demand, there will be supply. Fine, but not for war ! Education is failing and people are dying, but the US can fund war's and plagues ? Great !
And when these governments finally get fed up with their nonsense and enact some form of emergency policy under the guise of "national security," then what? It is the nature of governments throughout history to pounce upon every opportunity to expand and solidify their power. With Anon running around defacing websites, compromising data, and flaunting their cyber prowess, they are paving the way for government regulation of the web. Once a long enough track record of what will inevitably be labeled "cyber terrorism" is established and one or two spectacular headlines are made, the powers that be will do away with the formalities that enabled us to kill SOPA/PIPA and simply do what they feel "must be done" to protect "the public's interest."Guest said:
At least anonymous is doing SOMETHING rather than nothing about world governments trying to extend their reach for money.
