When the government/companies use the technology for surveillance; called “security, public safety, marketing, economy”, but when an individual use the technology “to observe” the government; called “committed to crime”. The interesting thing in both situation, individuals are willingly put themselves in these surveillance and crime. One called itself democracy, the other one’s anarchy. For both side, needs/wishes are same, just the tools are different. The point is in this thread not to become an extremist and not called as a terrorist!
Nevermore FBI was announced that hacktivist groups are terrorists for the governments. For that reason they wanted to set a snatcher to arrest that kind of hactivisit-terrorists in the name of being an intelligence agency. Five hackers in US and abroad charged and a sixth who is the leader of LulzSec Hector Xavier Monsegur a.k.a Sabu “the snitch” pled guilty for computer based crimes. These hackers also related to Anonymous movement, groups “Internet Feds”, “LulzSec” and “AntiSec”.

Lately a proof for Anonymous are all onboard and sailing; PandaSecurity, used by feds to investigate hacked and defaced by Anonymous in addition with “WE’RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE”.
