Anonymous: “a line was crossed” with Aaron Swartz, retaliation coming

anonymous-zinn

Anonymous is going nuclear after the death of Aaron Swartz, which was provoked by the prosecutorial abuse of Carmen Ortiz and other government officials who wanted to make an example of him. Anonymous is promising releases of docuements which they say will be very damaging to the government and the shadow government.

Hacktivist organization, Anonymous, is threatening perhaps their biggest play ever: a massive WikiLeaks-style exposure of sensitive U.S. government secrets. . As proof of their power, they announced details of the plan on hacked government website, the United States Sentencing Commission (USSC.gov). Citing the recent death of free information activist Aaron Swartz, they explain, “With Aaron’s death we can wait no longer. The time has come to show the United States Department of Justice and its affiliates the true meaning of infiltration.”

Decentralized groups and security. Anonymous hacked

Hackers, quite possibly from the government, replaced Anonymous DDOS software available for download with a version that steals passwords.

What we’re learning here is that there’s a serious flaw in how Anonymous works. By being so amorphous and disparate, there is no control over the members of the group. Incidents like this can easily happen because there’s nobody watching the hen house.

This telling example demonstrates one of the oldest splits on the left, that of centralized authority (Marxist) vs decentralized groups (anarchist.) The Marxist approach can lead to rigidity and calcification, while the anarchist approach can mean no one is really in charge. While Anonymous is more libertarian than left or right, this certainly applies to them and their anarchist organization style.

LulzSec leader informs on Anonymous

Usually the authorities infiltrate a group by starting with low-ranking members then moving their way up the food chain. This time they apparently began with the head of LulzSec “the de facto King of Anonymous” and he sang like a birdie to save himself from prison.

That’s right—the man who helped the internet celebrate #FuckFBIFridays was doing so from an FBI desk. But only after the feds wielded Sabu’s children against him

He’s a single dad and didn’t want to leave his two children on their own after pleading guilty to more than ten charges. Before you condemn, consider that many probably would have done the same…

Anonymous posts open letter to US citizens

Excerpts:

To effectively reform the system that has enslaved us, we must consider following the advice and example of those who have preceded us. Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and JFK are good places to start. All took fierce positions against central banking, government corruption and corporate power.

The time has come for us to unite, the time has come for us to stand up and fight! You are Anonymous!

A few of their grievances and demands.

A starting point for reform could be established by citing a list of worthy objectives provided by ampedstatus.com;

Enforce RICO Laws
Break Up the Big Banks
End the Fed
Break Up the Mainstream Media / encourage citizen journalists
Shut the Revolving Door
End Closed Door Lobbying
Increase Government Transparency
End Corporate Personhood
Amend Campaign Finance

These are the important issues. It’s time to forget the inane squabbling between the two parties on what is mostly social issue. Instead, we need to focus and organize on the rampant corruption in Wall Street and D.C. Our two party system is mostly a pretense while politicians and corporatists cycle back and forth between business and government, siphoning off what they can grab in the process.

We need a change.

Empire State Rebellion: An idea whose time has come

This video was posted by Anonymous. They are planning something major and it’s aimed directly at Wall Street. Let’s not forget when private security / gov’t spook company HBGary recently boasted they could take down Anonymous, they ended up getting disemboweled by Anonymous instead, who broke into their supposedly secure servers and distributed their highly incriminating email everywhere.

“Mainstream media in the United States is the most efficient weapon of mass oppression. The propaganda system is so extensive. There is so much divide and conquer rhetoric.”

But what, they say, if one million people clogged downtown Manhattan around Wall Street and said we’re not leaving until the banks are broken up? Indeed.

PS The binary message at the end translates to “OpESRsixfourteen” which could be the launch date but that seems too obvious and also too far off, so it probably signifies something else instead.
