Anonymous, the group of hacker activists, has applied for the position.
Their resume includes hacking the US Federal Trade Commission and taking down the Department of Justice website.Â They send sternly worded warnings before the cyber-attacks take place.Â It’s the kind of thing that makes the rest of us yearn to learn Linux and code so that we can participate in the fun.
But are we jumping on a bandwagon designed to take us for a quick ride to the closest Fema Re-education Center?Â Is Anonymous actually on our side, or is the group actually a psy-ops plant – an agentÂ provocateur?
TheÂ members of Anonymous haveÂ set themselves up as the cyber-Robin Hoods of the internet.Â They have issued a statement informing the world of their plan to take down the ‘net this Saturday.
âTo protest SOPA, Wallstreet, our irresponsible leaders and the beloved bankers who are starving the world for their own selfish needs out of sheer sadistic fun, on March 31, anonymous will shut the Internet down.â
The attack will target the Domain Name Servers, which will make it impossible to reach a destination on the net without knowing the actual IP address of that website.
In the spirit of resistance, I’d like to applaud any effort to slow down the efforts of the global elite and the de facto government (or at the very least, really annoy them). HOWEVER………………….
This reeks of the CO-INTEL program. “COINTELPRO (an acronym for Counter Intelligence Program) was a series of covert, and often illegal, projects conducted by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) aimed at surveiling, infiltrating, discrediting, and disrupting domestic political organizations.”
I’m far from the only person who is suspicious of Anonymous. While it’s a topic of conjecture, there are too many links to federal agencies for me to be on the Hackers R Us bandwagon.
Remember how quickly the unPatriotÂ Act followed the 9/11 attacks? It only took 6 weeks for that particular attack on our Constitutional rights to pass through the Congress to the desk of President Bush.
The internet take-down (if it does indeed occur on Saturday) will be a false flag event that will allow the de facto government to come up with a new internet unPatriotÂ Act law. The new restrictions will make SOPA, PIPA and ACTA look like games at a Libertarian Party picnic. By exposing the vulnerability of our grid and our financial systems, the de facto government will frighten people into believing the coming censorship is, as always, “for our own good.”
Another clue that Anonymous is not what it presents itself to be is the group’s visibility in the mainstream media.
