Max y Stacy hablan de la burocracia kafkiana de los sistemas financieros actuales que se guían por el lema “acabe con los documentos y acabará con el hombre”. En la segunda parte Max entrevista a David Graebe sobre la ´sovietización´ del capitalismo, donde cada vez hay más y más papeleo innecesario para realizar simples intercambios financieros, y sobre un nuevo concepto al que Max llama ‘comisionismo’.

Anonymous Operation #Snowden2016

Publicado el 14 de feb. de 2015

Greetings Citizens of the World
We are Anonymous

In June of 2013 Edward Snowden made one of the most important leaks in world history. Edward Snowden released incontrovertible evidence that the United States government is not only using the NSA to spy on its own citizens, but people all over the world. Since that time we have seen little to no meaningful action. Media attention on the NSA mass surveillance program has been lackluster, to put it lightly. Likewise, elected officials have done what they do best, which is nothing.

What is worse, outcry from the people has been limited with most citizens going about their lives as the NSA silently stores their every move on government servers. That is why we at Anonymous have engaged operation #Snowden2016

The purpose of #Snowden2016 is simple, to insert the issues raised by Edward Snowden into public discourse in any and all ways possible. In 2016 the United States will be holding national elections. Elected officials, new and old, will attempt to convince people to vote for them, all the while ignoring the NSA surveillance scandal that has gone entirely unaddressed. #Snowden2016 will take advantage of the media hype to bring the matter of mass surveillance into the spotlight at every turn. We will use all methods including: social media, protests and demonstrations, twitter storms, paper storms, street activism and of course hacks.

#Snowden2016 will also use what remains of the United States’ broken electoral system to hijack the 2016 elections in order to demand action on the Snowden leaks. Anons, occupiers, protesters and others will spread materials supporting Edward Snowden for President of the United States. Of course we do not expect an honest person to be elected to the highest office of the land, but campaigning the issue in this way will ensure the Snowden leaks are discussed as part of the 2016 election debate. If Edward Snowden were to appear on the ballot, politicians would be unable to ignore his leaks. While the Republican and Democratic parties bicker over who they will nominate for the office of President, the Snowden party has already selected their candidate.

Obviously #Snowden2016 will focus on the United States of America, but Anonymous asks everyone in the global collective to participate in this all important mission. We also reach out to those have long ago lost hope in democratic elections. Now is our chance to change the system and correct one of the greatest ills of the modern age. Your political party does not matter, your religion does not matter, you race does not matter, your citizenship status does not mater, as this issue effects all of us. So long as we are all being watched, none of us are free.

Use this opportunity to take control of the issue. Show others that they do not need to be afraid by boldly proclaiming the scandal of the NSA and demanding an end to mass surveillance. Discuss issues of mass surveillance with friends and family, post about it on social media and blogs, join protests and rallies, and coordinate with activist and political groups, spread the #Snowden2016 tag as far as you can. Remember that you are not alone as Anonymous stands beside you.

This is our internet and we will not allow any government exploit it in this way.
Join with us in operation #Snowden2016 as citizens of the world reclaim their freedom of privacy.

We are Anonymous
We are Legion
United as 1
Divided by Zero
We do not forgive government corruption
We will not forget mass surveillance
in 2016 you can expect us

Operation #Snowden2016 is Engaged!


#OpISIS Video Press Release by #Anonymous

To the citizens of the world we are Anonymous. Over the past several months we have watched the terrorist organization known as the Islamic State grow exponentially in size and have witnessed the atrocities that they have committed while the governments of the world do nothing and allow them to gain more power and territory with each passing day.
We have been watching and waiting. No longer can we stand idle and watch as these terrorists perpetrate crimes against humanity including murder, genocide, rape, child molestation, extortion, enslavement, human trafficking, forced prostitution, imprisonment and torture just to name a few.
The Islamic State has ambitions to circumvent free speech and the internet with the formation of a cyber caliphate designed to impose censorship upon all citizens of the world. In retaliation to these unforgivable crimes we have decided to engage the Islamic State.
We have not taken this action lightly nor the possible consequences however we can no longer wait for the governments of the world to respond while humanity suffers. These acts of brutality and censorship are inexcusable and will not be tolerated.
We appreciate those few in government whom still hold principles and believe that it is everyone’s responsibility to uphold human rights at all costs however we as a collective are sworn to protect the right to free speech against all those who would seek to destroy it though murder and intimidation.
To date Anonymous and Ghost Security have taken offline over eighty websites of the Islamic State and supporting Nations that were used primarily to recruit more terrorism, fund and circulate their propaganda of hatred. Furthermore we have removed hundreds of terrorist social media accounts being used for communication of future attacks against civilized nations and will continue to do so until we have completely dismantled their digital infrastructure.
We fully understand that due to the actions we take we exclude ourselves from the system where solutions are to be found. There are individual’s whom serve that purpose and are far more respectable than ourselves. These individuals voices come from the light and not the shadows and they will be heard.
Social media has changed the rules of the game. That is why we call upon you, students, teachers, activists, soldiers, parents, reporters, people from all over the world to unite and stand with us against this common threat. In order to achieve this our collective will be standing by to assist you in reaching this goal. It is time to wake up and not to sleep. With each day that goes by and we do nothing only served to strengthen their foothold. Our operations thus far have met with success. We have been able to turn social media and the internet into a weapon for change. We ask that everyone join us on Twitter and other social media platforms as a show of force that we as a people will no longer consent to fear or silence.
To the Islamic State we do not desire to negotiated with nor will we be negotiated with. Your efforts to censor the truth will come at great cost to you as will your attempts to silence us. Anonymous and the internet will continue to protect peoples right to free speech and human dignity from your inhumane ethics and twisted ideology.
You can attempt to suppress people but never the idea of freedom and humanity nor can you defeat us.
