Privacy, Security, Encryption Oh boy, what do we make of this? We haven't paid that much attention to the whole thing as of yet, but with a recent public statement on why they do what they do, I think it's about time to address this thing. Yes, Lulz Security, the hacking group (or whatever they are) that's been causing quite a bit of amok on the web lately.

Governments have a monopoly on force. That's the difference between anarchy and a country with the rule of law.

Maybe that clears things up?

Really, you think the free market should decide if you can kill someone????? That is what the free market is about?

The free market is about non-coercive interactions between free people. Government regulation adds coercion here, forbidding certain interactions, outlawing certain firms (which the Dutch government just did, they outlawed "Klicksafe", probably Amazon's Whispernet, and probably more), and creating monopolies (remember Telecom companies used to be government monopolies).
