If you haven’t heard yet It looks like #anonymous is once again taking justice into its own hands. They have taken multiple ant-piracy organizations down in retaliation to the actions of the FBI raid on MegaUpload earlier today. These sites include RIAA, MPAA, Department Of Justice just to name a few. According to the online chatter #ExpectUs this is the strongest coordinated attack recorded.
Aside from the obvious, I can’t help but question the timing of all this. It was only 24 hours ago that the largest recorded petition was done online to prevent malicious legislature from passing; SOPA aka Stop Internet Piracy Act (don’t pretend you knew that :P). Now we are seeing the largest retaliation by Anonymous, what if this is all the beginning of another digital version of 9/11? What if this event is the precursor to a larger plot, one that will portray a victimized system only to fool the it’s citizens into passing another SOPA *CAUGH* PATRIOT ACT… I cant help and wonder if Americans will finally man up to their responsibility and take back their country, because no one else will.
