It has been said before and it will be said again: We are winning. The HBGary leaks have not only vindicated our efforts, but have also proven a powerful precedent; that these monolithic institutions are not as unshakable as they once seemed. They have resorted to insane, immoral, and illegal techniques to eliminate the ‘threat’. The threat being nothing more than the truth and those who seek it. They fight the truth because they are scared of it. Scared that their castle of cards will soon collapse and that the power they have hoarded for so long will slip back into the hands of its rightful keepers, the people.
These leaks also prove that Anonymous is on the side of justice. The leaks show that our tactics pale in comparison to the shenanigans perpetrated by agents of corrupt organizations. Anonymous does not attack the media or journalists, Anonymous does not spread disinformation, nor does Anonymous illegally spy on activists with the intent of selling them out for a quick buck. We have shown that the Bank of America does all of this and more (on the tax payers dime, mind you). While BoA plots shady deals in back rooms, Anonymous openly invites everyone to join us in our efforts. The moral high ground is ours, Anakin.
As the antagonistic and deceitful acts perpetrated by HBGary and others come to light, they will only serve to embolden Anonymous, swell our ranks, and sharpen our resolve. As they tighten their security and increase pressure on Anonymous, our tactics will only become more effective. We know that, "the more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers." Ultimately, they are only adding more fuel to our fire.
We were raised to value truth and justice. We grew up with the most powerful medium of information and free thought ever known. The establishment gave us a world with little hope for a better future and perpetrated horrors that would make Lovecraft himself shudder. What did those who instilled in us such values expect from us? That the most globally conscious and connected generation in history would just sit back and watch the world burn away? No, instead we decided to fix it and perhaps share some lulz in the process. We can not stand back and watch as the establishment enforces an outdated status quo on society. The world changes and so shall its people.
