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.

Thank You

My friend, I would just like to briefly thank you for reading this blog and for trying to learn more about the idea that is Anonymous: that every single human being has a core contingent of inalienable rights that must be observed by his fellow persons. Exactly 48 hours ago, this blog was created to help share that purpose, to help improve the lives of human beings worldwide, by ensuring that the natural-born rights that they deserve are given to them. In the two days since, nearly 400 individuals have read this blog, 97 of which have shared it to others. My friend, thank you for having read and having shared this blog, and for having continued to show the world the truth. However, I must ask something of you, besides continuing to read further. I ask for some feedback on how to improve this blog and what other topics I can cover. In addition, if anyone is interested in contributing a post for the blog, I encourage you to let me know. The more the merrier, as the ol' adage goes! Thank you again, my friend.
