There is a war going on - the war for our minds, "The Hacker Wars". The government needs to control information. The film follows the information warriors who are fighting back, and it depicts the dangerous battle in which (h)ac(k)tivists fight for information freedom. Hacktivists impact the world in a new way by using the government's information against itself to call out those in power. Meet the hacktivists: "weev", Barrett Brown, Jeremy Hammond. They try to change the world and sometimes they go to jail.Written by
Conspiracy theorists posing as folk heroes fighting Nazi Empire
It's ridiculous how grandiose and narcissistic these neckbeards in this documentary are. They by their own admission are committing crimes, stealing emails, giving protected emails to the public, and committing espionage, and then they are getting upset when the government arrests them.
The documentary focuses mostly on Weev, an internet troll, who even blames the Jews all the time just to be controversial and obnoxious, who was arrested because he hacked AT&T by "just doing arithmetic" which revealed some email addresses.
The problem is that he thinks he was arrested for free speech or arithmetic. When in fact, he was arrested because he hacked a list of emails and gave it to the public, trying to expose and embarrass AT&T and government in essence VIOLATING THE PRIVACY of individuals working for government. It's hilarious how hypocritically they defend privacy rights while violating privacy rights of others using hacks.
None of these hackers contacted the company to say "hey you have a security flaw here, let me help you." They all hacked, embarrassed, and publicly showed off their hacks to others. It's criminal.
Ironically, they say things like "this government is oppressing me and all I do is speak out using 1st amendment." When in fact, they are literally encouraging people to commit crimes against the US. They are labeled the enemy of the state, because they literally admit to being the enemy of the state.
They are literally attacking and hacking the United States... And then pretending like they are only doing free speech and being persecuted unfairly.
PRO-TIP: IF YOU ARE ATTACKING A COUNTRY, ITS GOVERNMENT, ITS CORPORATIONS, YOU ARE THE ENEMY OF THAT COUNTRY AND THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO PROSECUTE YOU.
