Firstly, I must say, that I've only been an ATS member for 8 days, and have been aware of its existence for a few seconds longer than that. My eyes
then, have been opened just recently, you could say. Plus, I'm completely and utterly hooked!! Secondly, as I am new to ATS, I must apologize in
advance if I get any facts wrong, or if I'm completely off the ball. This is somewhat new to me.
ANONYMOUS & THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES..
I was wondering, the fact that Anonymous has all these references and homages to Guy Fawkes and The Gunpowder Plot, and to the movie V for Vendetta..
along with a message of "anarchy" on a global scale, not by a few, but by MANY. Surely, Anonymous is going to attract a certain type of person that
links these things together as.. causing anarchy, mayhem and chaos in a destructive and negative sort of sense. Not multitudes of people working
together on the same goals, intent on making people wake up and care about their surroundings. With the added intent of making lives, not only in our
environment, but all over the world, much much better. It's about growth, not destruction. I know they'll always be a huge sway of people that not
only ruin it for others, but also confuse the original intended message. However, should Anonymous have used the mask from V for Vendetta as the face
of their campaign? Is it not irresponsible to use something so icon, that is attributed to violence, terrorism and something that intended to bring
down the Government. Is, or was, Anonymous intended to be a campaign of violence? If not, can Anonymous members and founders, and anyone for or
against Anonymous and their message, be surprised by the fact that things have turned out in such a manner? Anonymous IS something VERY powerful. Just
like Stan Lee says: "With great power, comes great responsibility." If true, does Anonymous have a responsibility to keep its members, and anyone it
inspires, in order, and under the same belief system?
