Anonymous… Feelings?

3 years, 6 months ago

I’m curious to see what everyone’s reaction is to Anonymous. Do you agree with what they are "fighting" for? Do you agree with their methods?

I agree with the concept of “anonymous”. Although I think sometimes the actions they take may end up almost being counterprodutive (such as their attack on mastercard) Because it can lend a negative image to this group of people who are generally out for good. There are a lot of selfish, criminal, hackers, and yet this group does not appear to act on selfish reasons or impulse.

I think in a society encumbered with a lack of motivation of cohesive action, that a large group of organized individuals making a conscious effort to right the things they view as wrong, is absolutely fantastic.

The thing that is most striking about this to me is the fact that this group is actually able to get results.

I agree what they fight for, but i’m not sure with their methods. I’d love it if they could do something, but at this rate they’re just going to disappear. :/ I fucking hate this government though, I sincerely hope they scare the shit out of ‘the man’.

if their purpose was to make everybody happy, then yes, a different method might be advisable. However, the truth won’t be welcomed by many people, so you might as well put yourselves out there. No one is inspired by a half-hearted movement.

Even if they don’t get outright results, i love that these people are reminding everyone that they are greater than their government.

i love the fact they hacked and disabled all westboro “churchs” websites. if no one knows about westboro church……they hate homosexuals, and are deluded and ….dumb….infact.
loius theroux did a tv show about them, i think it was called “the most hated family in america”
you HAVE to watch that, such an eye opener to what people can believe if they are told that shit…excuse my language, but thats what it is.

freedom of speech is for everybody.

The apparent nature of there actions make them equally bad as what they are fighting.

And there is no clear responsibility in such organizations which i believe is never a good thing.

I am however for transparency and critical citizens

My 2 cnts.

Peace

I believe in the idea, but it’s a little scary. Yes they want to scare the governments but it’s also scary to the people. If they have hackers in on all of this that are able to hack into all of the high security databases and shit then think about what they could do if they ever want to go after a specific target. They could take down whole cities if their ideas change. It makes me nervous.. I love the fact that they are questioning the man, that’s what everyone should be doing. And I love the ideas that they stand for but I’m not sure if their methods are that solid. But I don’t have any other suggestions for them either, so either way….

I don’t think that we really have to worry about Anonymous going evil on us (the people.) These are individuals that feel as though the government and corporations are hiding too much information from us (the people,) and would like to actually do something about it. Most of them aren’t hackers actually, only a small number. They just have an easy way for the non-hackers to contribute. I feel as though this is really the only way to fight back against these authoritative masses. Not enough representatives in D.C. are doing shit to fix these problems, trust me, all you have to do is watch C-Span, and see a majority of lazy paid-off suits that passionately bicker about nothing to seem as though they know and care about something. Anonymous brings forth a new party to our oh-so-perfect democratic system. This party is the people (us.) And while most Americans are lazy in terms of being involved with their government, and ignorant in terms of what Washington and big corporations are doing, there are a smaller yet significant number of people that care about the right thing and will do what they can to make an impact. Ghandi did not have a Seven Nation Army fighting on his side, he had them fighting against him, and still won. That is they’re (Anonymous) goal, their method, and their reasons. I think that what they have isn’t a perfect system, but its better than our current situation. Knowledge is power, and so is anonymity for our sake.

i think that groups like this could definitely be a catalyst for some positive changes, if done correctly. i do have some mixed feelings on it though. it is this type of thing that could bring about some negative changes, whether intended or not. think about what happened when a few people took down the twin towers…….a whole new system of laws came about, almost none of them good (warrant-less wiretaps, unlimited holding time for suspected terrorists without any evidence, martial law, a loss of almost all rights, the list goes on and on)…..what my biggest fear is, is not what these people are capable of, but what our government is capable of in response. anything short of these people actually taking control of the government, could likely result in a whole new set of internet laws and regulations, basically having the opposite effect of what theyre trying to do, creating a more restricted, “non-anonymous” internet, with “big brother” monitoring every typed word even more than what happens right now……i could even see our own CIA or some such entity hacking our own power grid, or causing a bunch of problems in the name of this group, just to prove “how dangerous they are”, to not only put anonymous in a bad light, but also to get a bunch of new laws passed, thereby restricting us even more…

I personally feel that any group that imposes their views on others is not a good one.

I also believe this group is not doing that.

Props to them. Even if the worse is to happen,the idea they stand for is bound to only grow stronger

Awesome. I love how they refer to corporations/governments as the “organized criminal class,” bc that’s what they are. The scandalous shit that goes on with corporations & governments is well hidden, never publicized, and only driven by monetary gain. I like these guys.

I hope they’re as strong as they think they are, and from the looks of it they might be. Looking forward to seeing their follow through… could be epic

they are bringing awareness to those who simply accept what they are told because another human being with “authority” tells them so. what does anonymous stand for? unity, love, peace? no matter what their message is about, there is always something about how we should uncover the truth and educate ourselves. realize what’s being hidden from us and why. is anonymous a credible group of people…. maybe, maybe not. but their message and what they stand for is what we all hope for:

PEOPLE SHOULD NOT FEAR THE GOVERNMENT, GOVERNMENT SHOULD FEAR THE PEOPLE.
