Wikileaks defended by hacktivists


www.bbc.co.uk

Internet hacktivists have fired the latest salvo in the Wikileaks infowar.

A group called Anonymous has hit sites that have refused to do business with the controversial whistle-blowing site with a series of distributed denial-of-service attacks.

It mirrors similar attacks aimed at the Wikileaks site.

This is interesting.

The fact Anonymous is on the case is common knowledge - it's good that they're fighting back against the corporatocracy.

However, what's more interesting is the fact that the BBC has referred to this whole escapade as an INFOWAR!

The concept is beginning to bite, and people are listening. If the public becomes aware that we are in an InfoWar, then people may start questioning more about what they are told to believe.

This can only be a good thing surely?

What i would humbly like to point your attention to is what a particular person well versed into how and what methods work upon the general population. But the truth often is sour.



“Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”

Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials, 18 April 1946

Hi Tristar - thanks for the contribution, but I'm afraid I've totally missed your point.

Can you enhance it a bit for me?

Some retard talking head on Fox News literally ended four sentences in a row with "...It's a cyber war on the United States!" This is not going to end well. I hope anon absolutely destroys their networks and information because I think we can all see a clamp down is coming soon and I doubt anon will get another chance.

Short but blunt, perhaps you are actually viewing a smoke screen in real time

Sometimes I hate talking on the net - I can't figure out whether people are being cryptic or trolling! I think you're being cryptic, but I still don't understand the relevance.

Humans are so predictable.

He's not being all that cryptic. Just read his quote. There's nothing new about the governments using such tactics. All you have to do is turn on msm and you will see it in action. I've not lost hope yet, but I'm a realist. Most people do not think for themselves, nor do they research information outside of their common news feeds.

You simply covered over 65% of the global internet.

No harm done, but when one refers to taking down Paypal or should i say working on and one considers them as an ideological approach to voicing an opinion, it does indicate a form of acknowledgment and referrers to a group or individual/s who have the ability to do what others only dream within their cerebral cortex.

Hmm.. anonymous... not the heroes wikileaks deserves, but the ones it needs right now?
They have a good sense of justice at least some of the time. You don't want to be on their bad side. I don't know whether they are good or bad for wikileaks. I would say they are equally condemned, with far less people knowing anything about the anonymous group. They will get wikileaks the attention it deserves when governments start trying to drown them out.

Everyone can still do their part to support wikileaks by spreading the leaks around and talking about it everywhere they go. Also joining the boycott on companies that are bowing to big brother would help: Amazon and Paypal (which is owned by E-Bay). I believe Twitter and Visa are buckling to government pressure now too.
