Anonymous, the Hacking Society, Contradicts Itself

Updated on February 3, 2012

The internet hacking society Anonymous has been known for standing up for freedom, more specifically freedom for all. Freedom is the right to do whatever anyone wants to do. Is it not? If Anonymous is trying to allow freedom for all then they are contradicting themselves. The only way to have freedom is if the choice is given to the individual to permit freedom or not. Freedom, can never be forced upon someone. When Anonymous hacks into peoples' lives and exposes information it is not, by any means, in the name of freedom. Freedom will never find itself by forcing people against their will to abide.

True Leaders of Freedom

Jesus

Born 0 B.C. in Bethlehem this Man showed love to the Roman rule, even while they crucified Him. He did not force his views on anyone, but drew people to Himself by showing them how to love. Some argue this Man was not God. While others argue this man was God. I believe this Man was God and man. He was called the Son of man, as well as the Son of God. The Jews under the Roman rule were seeking a warrior king, who would deliver them from the bonds of Roman rule. To their dismay they got a peace loving hippy. This one individual has influenced more people than any secret society the world over.

Quotes from the disciple Matthew:

43 "You have heard that it was said, "You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.'

44But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46For if you love those who love you, what reward have you?

(By the way, I am 85% sure I have Jewish heritage.)

Gandhi

Born 1869 A.D. in British India this man is the father of the nonviolence movement. India was being forcefully controlled by British rule. Many people were being mistreated and abused. Gandhi saw this injustice, but instead of forcing the British against their own will to stop, he told the people to stand up for their fellow brother and peacefully use nonviolence. What many people do not know is Gandhi was a disciple of Jesus.

Quotes from Gandhi:

The missionaries come to India thinking that they come to a land of heathen, of idolaters, of men who do not know God. My own experiences all over India have been on the contrary. An average Indian is as much a seeker after truth as the Christian missionaries are, possibly more so……….If I have read the Bible correctly, I know many men who have never known the name of Jesus Christ, men who have even rejected the official interpretations of Christianity, but would nevertheless, if Jesus came in our midst today in the flesh, be probably owned by him more than many of us. My position is that it does not matter what faith you practice, as long as the soul longs for truth...

Both of these are who we should model true freedom after. I hope Anonymous realizes this contradiction and changes their outlook on freedom. Even though hacking is not a direct threat to an individual, it can harm people. It can harm people emotionally, financially, and even physically if they cannot withstand emotional stress. Turn to true freedom.
