SMS 4 Barrett Brown—Dallas-based journalist, former D Magazine columnist and story subject, ex-con, avid vaper—was on NPR for a piece that feels very old-fashioned in its fear of both anarchy and computers. In “An Anarchist Explains How Hackers Could Cause Global Chaos,” Brown talks to Laura Sydell about the past and future of “hacktivism” and his ongoing efforts to upend the global order. There’s a digression concerning the television show Mr. Robot, which features an Anonymous-esque group that shares an affinity for silly masks and corporate cyberattacks. Anyways, here’s Brown, bad boy: He hates arbitrary power and always has. He is an anarchist who believes the U.S. government is fundamentally corrupt. And he says most Americans are too complacent to do anything about it. “That’s what … in part brings me to contempt for the American citizenry,” he says. “Obviously, I have no respect for the laws, for the government or for the voters.” And Brown, revolutionary: So he is designing a software program called Pursuance, which he says will take hacktivism into the future. It will be fully encrypted, anyone could use it to sort through a trove of hacked documents, and it could even be used to recruit a team of hackers. Brown says when people tweet and post their opinions on social media it’s just “slactivism.” “The next great act of hacktivism, if it really is going to be great, it has to be an act of reaffirming the idea of civic duty,” he says. He says he wants to provide a mechanism for people who do feel that sense of civic duty to really have impact.

If Barrett Brown were really resisting the elitists, would the elitists' media (NPR) give him coverage? If crypto-anarchism were really a threat to deep state, would crypto-anarchists be allowed to work on CIA-funded projects? If hacktivism mattered, and had the potential to cause justice, would the media have anything less than demonic to say about it? > He says he wants to provide a mechanism for people who do feel that sense of civic duty to really have impact. If that impact is anything less than the imprisonment of sundry public officials and returning all our property to we the people, then is it really any impact at all? > “That’s what … in part brings me to contempt for the American citizenry,” he says. “Obviously, I have no respect for the laws, for the government or for the voters.” If he has contempt for everybody then why is he wasting his time? Does he believe a magic line of source code will remove the source of the contempt? How convenient that the article pumps a kickstarter project where you get to give the (((hacktivist))) your shekels. Oh, that will have an impact. The elite promote their own footsoldiers by pretending they are "the resistance." > Brown says when people tweet and post their opinions on social media it’s just “slactivism.” When America's early revolutionaries passed around pamphlets, was that just "colonial slacktivism?" Back then we passed around pamphlets. Today we pass around tweets. What's the difference? What does he expect them to do? Does he expect the people to have a Stalinist purge or something? Does he expect them to roll out the guillotines? (((Revolutionaries))) love it when the goychiks kill each other and join go-nowhere "resistance movements." How dare they tweet at each other, that's so contemptible.

Brown now is a hardened criminal I guess that is what it takes ... remember both Ghandi and Hitler served time like Brown before they changed the world for the better
