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.

<blockquote>Which is just as silly as believing in communism. Both are ideals that do not take human nature into account.

If you modify that statement to,

<blockquote>"Since a small handful of humans are self-centered pricks that will abuse any idealistic system, we have to recognise that there must be safeguards in place to protect the rest of us. That's just the cold and harsh reality of this world."</blockquote>

I would agree with you 100%. :-)
