I was following the Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks on Visa, MasterCard and PayPal closely during the supporters campaign to target those financial firms who had cut any ties with Wikileaks.
They also issued other instructions, and one particular notice caught my eye.
Written by a Dutch citizen, based upon the English grammar, the notice reads as follows:
It’s the first time a big-deal Cyberwar is going on, and for that, the whole community should be proud of those efforts. We also know we're just warming up, DDoS is nothing comlex at all.
The point is: why stopping here?
We know we live in a system rotten to the core, and no country is exception …
I’m not saying Capitalism versus Communism.
Every form of Government is basically corrupt, doesn’t matter the system, for all of those depend on money to work.
The sh*t we live in, corruption, lack of transparency, greed are just by-products of an outdated system.
Even if our mission is successful, all of this will come back if we don’t go for the root causes.
Let’s face it people, there’s not fix for this system. We need serious update, redesign it from the ground up.
And that’s the root problem: the monetary/financial system.
It goes on to point to an interesting 30-minute programme about “How Money is Created”.
The programme is on YouTube in three parts.
A call to revolution?
Or just a call in the wild?
Probably the latter, as the note finishes by saying: “so, the first Christmas in long years without Consumerism would be a fresh start. Internet Heroes? Let’s prove it.”
Don’t think so: “comScore's latest ecommerce figures show that around $5.5 billion (£3.5 billion) was spent between December 11th and 17th, an increase of 14 per cent on the same period last year.”
