Three Cheers for Anonymous!




I'm very pleased that Anonymous has declared cyberwar on ISIS, Al Qaeda, and whatever groups and people were behind the murderous terrorists attacks in Paris last week.   As Anonymous indicates in the above video, the group has always been a fervent and uncompromising champion of freedom of expression - when it was trampled by American police in contravention of our First Amendment during Occupy Wall Street being a prime example.   But with the killing of cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo, the defense of free expression has taken on a new urgency.  Governments have their hands more than full with the attempt to bring those murderers to justice and insure to whatever extent possible that they won't continue.  The cyberwar part of this is crucial, and the good guys - we, who believe in absolute freedom of speech and press - need all the help we can get.  Three cheers for Anonymous for stepping up.  Its joining this fight is necessary and welcome.
