I have mixed views about “Anonymous.” Overall, I would say they are a net positive. I tend to lean more on the defensive side to digital activism. For example, if I had the talents these hacktivists have I would be more likely to found companies that compete with established banking and insurance institutions. I know there are a bunch of digital gold trading companies out there but I’ve yet to find one that completely operates without any government blessings. A true free-market banking company that uses real money as its currency and spans the globe is in dire need. And going after Westboro Baptist Church just seems like a waste of time to me. On the other hand I do love the fact that they are helping to throw a wrench in the gears of the machine.
