His message is important, can't you muster up anything better than "it's stupid"? It clearly isn't stupid, and if you weren't clearly
blind to everything around you, you'd understand that. "None are most hopelessly enslaved than those that falsely believe they are free." Go back
this "laughing man" is so arrogant that he believes his stupid message is so important he can hack people and annoy people in order to spread it.
It's clear you don't get the laughing man thing, and people spread messages like this one all the time, but do they get heard? Take this 2
year old YouTube video for instance:
Get over yourself "laughing man", you're not that important, spread your message like anyone else, you have no special rights.
Only through such efforts such as this one by the Laughing Man will people ever bother paying attention. "In this country even talking of resisting
the forces of Government is met with imprisonment or murder. The trap has already been set, American citizens accused of terrorism, and they don't
just mean Muslims, can be tortured and killed. All this based on the mere accusation of resisting the Government."

That video had 20,000+ views. That's not bad. But plenty of people manage to get their message out without hacking and annoying people.
Think of Alex Jones, as much as I dislike him, when he works hard on getting some message out, he can get 500,000+ views, like his lebron video, or 6+
million for his Obama Deception.
That "Thomas Paine" guy got millions of views for his videos.
This "laughing man" video is garbage, not even as good as an average Alex Jones video, so it won't go viral naturally. But he's such a
narcissist, he has to force it by hacking.
That's just not how the world works.
Our messages get out based on their merits. If I say something important/insightful on ATS, I get a lot of stars/flags through a natural system, and
lots of people read it. I don't sign up a bunch of sockpuppets to force it onto the front page. If i've said something that people don't find of
interest, I just leave it, and try again.
I believe in a system of natural merit. A free market of ideas.
The "laughing man" does not. If we all behaved as vigilantes like this guy, it would just be meaningless chaos.
