In the News "Internet vigilante group Anonymous turned its sights on security firm HBGary on Sunday evening in an attempt to "teach [HBGary] a lesson you'll never forget." The firm had been working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation to unmask members of Anonymous following the group's pro-WikiLeaks attacks on financial services companies, and was prepared to release its findings next week."

But it feels soo right

I find myself constantly having conversations about this topic at work and most people seem to be very against this. They love to go on and on about how it's illegal and they have no right to do the things that they do, but I'm just not feeling it. At what point did it become acceptable for the government to start a witch-hunt against people who have been charged with no crimes? to force people into hiding for their safety? to cut of people's funds? I'm sorry, but if you're a company, a government, or a "security" firm and you start oppressing the people of this world who are trying to stand up for what's right, then screw you, you deserve the full wrath of Anonymous.

Civil disobedience is only good when the OTHER party is in power.
