The Anonymous, the "Off with their heads" policy!
It's been four years now that a group of masked pacifists, "terrorists", "hackers" demarcated itself as the counter-power to omnipotence, riding their Trojan horse of democracy. Every lash from the authority is whipped by their "hacking". Those soldiers from this new age revolution shine with computers, genius and boldness. Their territory, their jurisprudence, their power are limitless and consequently they strike whoever, wherever, whenever. Weren't we subjugated to the law of the strongest? It is now reversed, isn't it? Their wind of revolution/resistance is viral! To omnipotence, they slash the arrogance of the authority with a skillful middle finger.
Their message is clear, FREEDOM. The U.S., France... the rest of the world are on the lookout, their legions will raid any unjustified actions against the people. Any of us is a potential Anonymous, we just need a little push from the economy such as to be kicked out from the solvability and the solvency of the market to soothe the corporations' greed, to step out of the norms and carry their flag!
Governments, corporations are their sole targets so far. They work for the common good. As pockets of resistance are forming in a subterranean guerrilla, they grow and gain support from the population. The U.S., French and lately the Syrian (denoted a lack of maturity on this move, the Middle-East affairs are complicated without insights) governments fell under their power...
A movement of rebellion gushed out from the debris of the implosion of capitalism, from a continual siphoning off of our freedom. Incomprehensively, we remain enigmatically vegetative. Every attack limiting drastically the margin of our freedom is sanctioned by a subtle visit to profligate and despotic websites. What the executive refuses to sever due to outside pressure, Justitia, embodied by the group, rectifies the shot. In an international concerted effort, they slid to the targeted webs, shut down their sites condemning them to silence. An eye for an eye could be their motto or ours! The infringement of our freedom has consequences as it should be! What other solution?
When we demonstrate, the militarized and armored police, on the battlefield, launch their tear gas, their water jets, their rubber bullets... What are our weapons in expressing our disagreement? Our voice. What is its weight while facing the police? It is crushed. When youngsters sit-in, "our" police, the mayor's personal guard, sprays them. Shall next time we be belted with a baseball bat or Molotov cocktails to prevent such brutal clash? Obviously not.
Then how will they hear our cry, or at least our message? The Wall Street Occupy Movement had the conference of Davos question the model of pure capitalism as if it had been applied, diverting from posing the real interrogation as for the viability of capitalism. The elite is pretending to feel concerned. How will they hear our grievance, then? They won't! They proved it! What other solution?
Why those rebels did become a voice? An action? Because we were not heard? Because nobody will defend the people in their pursue of justice? Who will throw at them the first stone if not the repressers? When the FBI took down Megaupload, they decided to cleanup the web from its undesirables. What is undesirable for many, for the rulers (less secrets, less benefits), is very desirable for others!
Those websites responded to a demand! Who could this demand be? A distinct segment of the population? Young, precarious economical status, resourceful, online users? Or people unassuaged with monopolies? Maybe this same demand has for motivation not to kill for drug, not to sell meth, not to rape, not to rob a bank (although...) but to punch a society to its weakness i.e. its corrupt face.
You may regard me as an outlaw and it would be to my honor but the circumstances are definitely favorable for such behavior. I've never sworn semper fidelis to any current of thought, belief or any cheating governments, only to a country! I don't march to the shouting of a military superior or to the reassuring voice of any politicians! Dissension is my answer when the veil of tyranny starts falling down over the people. Dissension is the rope that will hang all the English Charles the 1st of the world! Dissension is the opportunity for heroes to start to rise, to engage in a fight in the name of the people!
When the insurrection reached the doors of Versailles, Marie-Antoinette had both bread and cakes, the people none! In the turmoil, Danton appeared to be their savior, they rallied him and OFF WITH THEIR HEADS. When all of us eat bread, most of them eat cakes. When all of us eat bread, more and more of us dream of cakes! What will happen if we have none? I learned that the end justifies the means.
