“Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.”-Benjamin Franklin
Hacktivists group Anonymous claims to be virtual vigilantes defending the copper conductors of the internet. They claim to be activists, exploiting big business, government, and personal security in order to build awareness. Forming a movement, Anonymous is anti-SOPA and for the sharing of whatever information over the internet freely. Anonymous has an unknown number of members that carry out large malicious attacks on targeted websites and persons. The actions of Anonymous are a peaceful protest against censorship, their efforts have uncovered crimes, and has arose awareness of social issues in America. Do you think their actions are warranted?
