“Stay hungry, stay foolish”.
I know some people are unsure about what Anonymous stand for…what is hactivism? Are they some kind of terrorist group or just a bunch of hormonal nerdy teens that troll the net for fun?
Anons are not even a group. Not an organisation. The Guy Fawkes Mask is probably what most people recognise…but it’s not a fashion accessory!
Any Anon will give a different answer to what Anonymous is. Because it is an IDEA. An idea that unifies people (and even non human earth dwellers!)…and that is very basically that…
LIFE IS SACRED
FREEDOM IS THE BASIC RIGHT OF ALL LIVING THINGS
TYRANNY OPPOSES FREEDOM AND DENIES PEOPLE INFORMATION IN ORDER TO CONTROL THEM ‘FOR THEIR OWN GOOD’
…V loosely, the Anon idea is that ALL living beings are equally worthy of that life…whatever it is they love; whatever it is they do; whatever their colour, religion, race (and species for that matter). That the freedom to communicate ideas and unify individuals that the Internet has heralded should be protected. Because it’s important that we understand that the very idea of the empowerment of the individual by accessible information is more important than any of the information we may access. It’s the principle that has the power to effect real change.
I see that as a very positive thing. In my work I teach energyhealing, reiki and meditation primarily. It’s a niche…and I am kind of a hippie. I don’t consider my work as being an act of peaceful protest – but I feel strongly and have always promoted the empowerment of the individual. I can’t pass on teaching to someone who doesn’t wish to learn. So it’s a two way street.
If you see stuff going on in the world you don’t agree with, even if you feel powerless to change it – change yourself. Change what you do. Communicate your ideas to others. Don’t just stand idly by because it looks like that’s what everyone else is doing!
Remember, just because something has become THE NORM, doesn’t make it NORMAL. Just because something has become ACCEPTABLE in the mainstream, doesn’t mean it should be unquestionably ACCEPTABLE to everyone.
There are differences we all can make just by choosing the way we see ourselves, the world and others. We can seek out the information that never makes it to the mainstream and make decisions and changes based on it.
It may seem whimsical and far fetched to imagine an individual can change the world. But Anonymous are many individuals, united by ideas. All around the world. People like you and me.
So if you look around and wonder at the hypocrisy, know that there are thousands…maybe millions…doing the same. You’re not alone.
I love this little Anon Vlog…it summarises beautifully just what so many of us know deep down to be RIGHT.
So…follow your heart…xxxx
