Welcome, my friend and fellow citizen of the world, to Think Anonymously! I am Anonymous (and no, that's not my "real" name) and, as that psuedonym suggests, I am a member of the organization known as Anonymous. And just to preemptively answer your impending question, my friend, no, I am not a hacker nor do I have any interest (or the necessary skill) in becoming one. See, that's a common misconception that's being promoted and thrown about in the media: that the members of Anonymous are just a bunch of glasses-wearing, acne-covered dorky teens with some skill in hacking and a little too much free time that, just for the hell of it (a.k.a. "lulz"), break into governmental agencies, multi-billion dollar corporations, and the like. That view of us is completely false (seeing as that would be LulzSec :). And that encompasses my purpose in writing this blog: to get the voice of Anonymous out there, in the public's eye, so that people may be able to hear both sides of Anonymous' story, not the biased, one-sided account reported on by the media.

So, who is Anonymous? Well, to put it simply, we are a group of people, from all around the globe and from all walks of life, who hold two core beliefs above all: we believe, with every fiber of our beings, that all people are equal, and, in that equality, have a few basic, "inalienable rights: ...Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness." And, we believe that our right to liberty, to the most basic human freedoms, most especially the right to think freely and to freely express those thoughts in a public or private forum, are being violated by the governments of the world through censorship and espionage.

So, what does Anonymous do about these gross violations of our most basic civil liberties? We fight back. No, not through violence, rebellion, or warfare, but by peacefully doing what we believe, nay, what we know is right! And yes, some of what we may do is illegal, but, like Thoreau, like Gandhi, like King, we believe in nonviolent civil disobedience, the peaceful refusal to obey the law, commands, and orders of the government that we disagree with and feel violate our natural liberties. We believe that man must obey his conscience first, rather than human law.

And so, my friend, are you ready to join the movement to defend your inalienable rights and freedoms from the forces of oppression? If your answered that question with a roaring, defiant "YES!", then read further, take a look at our website and forums at whatis-theplan.org, and see how you can get involved today.

And remember one thing, my friend: change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitablity, but comes through continuous struggle. And so, we must straighten our backs and work, fight for freedom. A man can't ride you unless your back is bent. So, friend, straighten your back, hold your head high, and look forward into the rising sun, towards a better tomorrow.

American Lockdown: The Eroding Away of Our Freedom

So, my friend, why does Anonymous fear for the restricting of people's freedom, the devolution of the basic civil liberties our ancestors fought tirelessly for generations to establish? Well, things like this should give you a clue. The following film, entitled Camp FEMA: American Lockdown, should give you a little bit of an idea. In short, it takes a look into into the plans and procedures in place by the government for declaring martial law, particularly through the investigation of new law enforcement "fusion centers" that may be in control of rumored internment camps for rounding up U.S. citizens who are deemed a threat to national security. Frightening, right? Damn right.

Now, I know that many of you do not have the time at hand to watch this hour-and-a-half long film, and, as such, to provide with you a brief summary of the film, the movie's trailer is located directly above the film (e.g., right beneath this post, so the clip of the trailer comes immediately after this paragraph, followed by the movie in full).

Now, although there is extensive evidence suggesting that this is the case, that the United States of America has made preparations, including the construction of internment and concentration camps for its own citizens, for establishing martial law, I am, by no means, advocating any sort of conspiracy theory. Yet, the fact remains: the Constitutional rights of the American citizenry have been vastly eroded over time, just as a swiftly-moving river rapidly bears down and away the rock that surrounds it. And ultimately, once enough of the rock has been born down, the river floods. And, that, my friend, is why we must stop the erosion of our basic human liberties, of our Constitutional rights. We must dam up the river that erodes our natural-born freedoms and, through that course of action, then and only then can we prevent the United States and nations worldwide from turning into the totalitarian nightmares that we all so immensely fear.

My friend, the bedrock is wearing thin. Time is short if we wish to keep the river from overflowing its banks and flooding the nearby lands. Will you join in the construction of the dam? Will you fight to save your basic rights, freedoms, and liberties? Or will you lay down and wait, wait for waters to crash over you, wait to drown?
