Is the group by the name of Anonymous a bad thing? I don’t believe so. They are here to promote freedom and fun. I believe 100% in there beliefs that software should be free and the government shouldn’t be hiding things from us the way they currently are. Even if Anonymous does things that aren’t morally “right” they still do the “right” thing for freedom.  They are like modern day Robin Hood with a computer.

How the group started

The group was originally just a bunch of members from the site 4chan who lived in the /b/ section of the site. At first they were just in it to get laughs and play pranks on people. Eventually they grew past that when a man by the name of Hal Turner was talking crap about one of the guys from the /b/ section of 4chan. At that point they took it personal and started calling him on his radio show. Just asking dumb question to troll him. Then it turned out that Hal Turner was a Neo-Nazi so they attacked him even more. They would order a crap ton of stuff like pizza, and industrial materials and get it sent to his house. Ron Paul would have to pay for all this stuff until he couldn’t afford to keep his radio show anymore. Anonymous changed from one of the worst things on the internet to being a source of good. They kind of became the internet’s first army. After all of that they took on the Church of Scientology. They tried to take down a video of Tom Cruise talking about the secrets of Scientology. So Anonymous grabbed the video and started posting it everywhere. They disliked everything about Scientology and they went to digital war. Anonymous pranked them super bad by shutting down their phones and websites. That is when they made there first video basically threatening Scientology. The video also decided to meet to protest against the Church of Scientology and their numbers were huge. They all wore the Guy Fawkes Mask from V for Vendetta to hide there faces from any video that might be shot and their beliefs were they were all one so they needed a “uniform”. Operation Titstorm was their next operation which was against the Australian government because they were trying to censor the internet. Then Paypal and MasterCard shut down donations to Wikileaks because Wikileaks had posted a whole bunch of secret US documents. This angered Anonymous because you could donate money to the KKK, Neo-Nazi, and the the Westboro Baptist Church with your Paypal or MasterCard but not give any money to Wikileaks. They basically shut down their website so no one could use the two sites.  For more information watch the video that I have posted below.
