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.

Of course it is. Everything is. Unlike you, I don't seem to have a one-minded attitude. You apply regulation where it makes sense. Your attitude seems to be that regulation is always bad, and you seem to posses some sort of eternal everlasting faith in the free market.

Which is just as silly as believing in communism. Both are ideals that do not take human nature into account. Since humans are by definition self-centred pricks, they will abuse both a free market as well as a communist system. That's just the cold and harsh reality of this world.


Yeah, humans are by definition self-centered pricks.... except for the ones that run government. Those humans are all saints ;)

Ah yes. They would never, never ever, send lewd pictures of themselves to young girls. They would never open up themselves for blackmail. They would never be beholden to lobbyists.
