Who? Who?

This interview overall undoubtedly has misconceptions, self-inflated bravado, gross exaggerations and so forth, but if the last statement he utters is true about people coming to them, even to a significantly lesser degree than he indicates, the world-ruling elites might be quaking ever-so-slightly, but involuntarily, in their boots. And much more so if indeed insiders are giving Anonymous the “keys to the kingdom,” the passwords into it.

Insider tells why Anonymous ‘might well be the most powerful organization on Earth


Q. What’s next for Anonymous?

A: Right now we have access to every classified database in the U.S. government. It’s a matter of when we leak the contents of those databases, not if. You know how we got access? We didn’t hack them. The access was given to us by the people who run the systems. The five-star general (and) the Secretary of Defence who sit in the cushy plush offices at the top of the Pentagon don’t run anything anymore. It’s the pimply-faced kid in the basement who controls the whole game, and Bradley Manning proved that. The fact he had the 250,000 cables that were released effectively cut the power of the U.S. State Department in half. The Afghan war diaries and the Iran war diaries effectively cut the political clout of the U.S. Department of Defence in half. All because of one guy who had enough balls to slip a CD in an envelope and mail it to somebody. Now people are leaking to Anonymous and they’re not coming to us with this document or that document or a CD, they’re coming to us with keys to the kingdom, they’re giving us the passwords and usernames to whole secure databases that we now have free reign over. … The world needs to be concerned.

Phi Beta Iota:  Achieving an Open Source Everything world is a three part process:

1.  Creation of Open Source Alternatives.

2.  Creation of Integrated infrastructure–pieces need to intersect.

3.  Abolishment of political parties and governments that try to micro-impose safety standards (e.g. air bags) and other onorous measures whose sole real purpose is to make competition unaffordable for the Open Source Everything movement, while blackmailing commerce into contributing to Political Action Campaigns.

The “Open Source Everything” (OSE) meme is not new — I’m just the first person to put it into a strategic context and bring it all together in a book, THE OPEN SOURCE EVERYTHING MANIFESTO: Transparency, Truth & Trust (2012).

Below are a few of the leading online posts in this area.  OSE is a cultural shift, and the primary attribute of Epoch B panarchic self- and hybrid-governance.

Robert Steele: Liberation Technology Update

Advanced Cyber/IO, Autonomous Internet, Liberation Technology
Robert David STEELE Vivas

Liberation Technology is much broader than Information Communications Technology (ICT) and is not synonymous (although it should be) with Open Source Everything (OSE).  It seemed like a good time to provide an update on this key term.   Within the ICT arena, we distinguish Autonomous Internet (OpenBTS to Open Specturm), and Advanced Information Operations (AIO), the latter rooted in OSE and permitting M4IS2* at machine speed.

M4IS2:  Multinational, Multiagency, Multidisciplinary, Multidomain Information-Sharing and Sense-Making.
