I’m curious about something. What is everyone’s view on the groups Anonymous/Lulzsec and their activities?
Personally I do not agree with what they ‘do’. I can share a common ideal with them that information should be free, but I like to throw in a small caveat. I do not believe in sharing information with the public that could be detrimental to human life. Leaking information about the questionable practices of a large corporation is one thing, but messing with DoD and local law enforcement is crossing the line. I understand that ‘they’ argue that corrupt officials need to be ousted but what exactly did [insert random patrol cop’s name here] do to you? Some of them may be jerks or even scumbags I know; however not all of them are. Couldn’t punishing everyone and not just those responsible for wrong doings be compared to sending innocent people to jail?
Does the end justify the means?
Do virus creators work for anti-virus companies to keep themselves in a job?
How about black hats?
Are some doing it so they can work both sides?
Is it good for business and bad for society?
The reverse? Neither/both?
Does exposing government abuse make us safer or less safe?
Should we take the high road or the pragmatic road?
These are all tough questions that aren’t easily answered.
