Radical Anonymous vs. Scientology

What scares me about this is the zealotry the so-called "radical" Anonymous movement has for its vendetta against Scientology. And listen, I am NO fan of Scientology, so don't go there with me kiddo.

Given their favorite icon; the mask from V, you'd think the Anonymous ones would go after what fucking matters. An example: George Bush and fellow cohorts. Calls for impeachment. Voting fraud. (And don't go there with me either; about how there's been voting fraud forever, and all elections are rigged in some way, etc. Does that make it right? Fuck no.)

As the line from V For Vendetta goes (which is a great movie)
People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

Paraphrased from Thomas Jefferson, who said:
When the people fear the government you have tyranny...when the government fears the people you have liberty.

Ironic they're running around with those masks on, attacking a religion rather than politics. Oh yes, I know that religion and politics are just about interchangable in many ways. . .point is, they're missing the point.

Scary times, my friends. In more esoteric ways than one might think . . .
