I stumbled on this video today. The words would be chilling if it weren’t for the target of their wrath.
The transcript, in part:
Hello, leaders of scientology
We are Anonymous
Over the years we have been watching you your campaigns of misinformation
Your suppression of descent
Your litigious nature
All of these things have caught our eye
The leakage of your latest propaganda video into mainstream circulation
The extent of your malign over those who have come to trust you as leaders has been made clear to us
Anonymous has therefore decided that your organisation should therefore be destroyed.
For the good of your followers
For the good of mankind and for our own enjoyment
We shall proceed to expel you from the internet and systematically dismantle the church of Scientology in its present form
We recognise you are serious opponents and do not expect our campaign to be completed in a short time frame
However, you will not prevail forever against the angry masses of the body politic
Your choice of methods
Your hypocrisy and the general lawlessness of your organisation have sounded its death knell
You have nowhere to hide
Because we are everywhere
You will find no recourse in attack because for each of us that falls ten more will take his place
We are anonymous
We are legion
We do not forgive
We do not forget
Is there a moral here?
If you try to suppress information, if you bully people, if you anger people, eventually you will become a target. This may not be a major problem unless everyone who is against you decides to stop what they are doing and focus on taking you down.
