Oh, I wouldn't say over thinking is a character flaw
.A lot of people try too say anonymous stands for this or that, but the truth is there is too
much diversity for a group like that to be united on all issues.It is a problem many activist groups face, What deserves attention and whats the best
actions to take, and how do we keep our egos out of it..
The first video is by FIN (freedom information network) not technically an Anonymous video, but they are fairly vocal about supporting Anonymous. It's
those sorts of forums (more specifically forums that dont retain threads) where Ops are discussed and a plan is formulated, along with live video chat
rooms. There has been a definite shift from doing things just for the lulz too wanting to improve the world, People have had a taste of rEvolution,
and they like it.
Yes! A congress would be a good analogy, the U.N. symbol is used to portray that sort of an organization, a congress for the internet. That's where
the anonymity is handy, it helps prevents anons being corrupted or persecuted by those that would seek to control them. Of course anonymous is very
easy to infiltrate, but that's where the critical thinking comes into play, dont back an Op unless you defiantly agree with it.
Generally Ops are planned by a small group of people who then present it to the anon collective. Many Ops simply never get the support necessary to
achieve anything. If some support it and others dont, it becomes fairly obvious there is a difference of opinion. Taking direct action against a
fellow anon is a big no, no, but you can be as vocal as you like. When a video was posted threatening to blow up parliament house on Nov 5th, nearly
every Anonymous group condoned it, and some suggested anons report/ troll the video, which is an extreme. On the other hand when wiki-leaks put up a
pay-wall for some leaks, lots of people where pissed, but others said given Assange's circumstances it's understandable, Anonymous still supports
wiki-leaks, but there is still division on the matter. As a result there is #Opmayham, which is all about setting up a P2P network, effectively known
as Tylor (Fight Club reference) for whistle blowers to use. And recently there has been a lot of heated debates about #Oppalistine, and what action it
should be taking, but there is one thing every anon can agree on, We can Not allow Gaza's internet to go black.
