Your 13 year old cousin might be part of Anonymous

So, I've got this cousin, I don't know very much about him to be honest. But here's what I know: he never went to public or private school, he still lives with his mother, he's in his late teens I think, he is really into video games, he knows some kind of programming (as his mom posted how proud she was that he designed a level on a video game), his mother is a pioneer of chat room seduction and internet hook ups and who knows what else... (I should make a documentary about her. Fascinating stuff.) Internet savvy people. I have no idea what this kid does, (he is probably a really nice young man that will live a peaceful life and see Jesus when he's done)...but this kind of scenario (happens all over the great United States of America) is definitely a scenario in which a hacker/ internet junkie/ internet genius/ member of Anonymous is born.

Your 13 year old cousin might be part of the internet hacktivists known as Anonymous.

Stop and think for a second. Suspend yourself from reality and imagine a world in which it is entirely likely that the number one enemy to America could be your thirteen year old cousin. The youth in this country are evolving with technology. Want proof?

Give a kid an iPad.

They'll show you things you didn't know. They understand the technology in ways we have to learn. The combinations of tired parents and technology loving children will lead us down a scary path. You can buy a a mount that will allow you to hang an iPad right in front of your babys face in the carriage. Seriously, the iStrollkid is here! They will know each other like never before. Virtual Reality is already here, check out Google Glass. The singularity will surely happen with young brains and technology as they are fused together.

They will have complete understanding and knowledge of the internet and technology in ways that we cannot imagine. Some parents are constantly pulling their children away from the screen, limiting television time, limiting their information. (Most of them aren't.) These kids can't get enough, they bleed for more! They are addicted to the light. The dispersal of information provides them a portal into a world that is more exciting, more interactive, more enticing than the world we live in. I am quickly becoming a dinosaur as I dream of a time when I can turn off everything and sit in complete silence on top of a mountain. There is nothing more relaxing than losing the sounds of the city for a moment as the sound and power of the beach overwhelm you.

This is where it gets sticky. Surely, we're only months away from Anonymous being publicly named as a terrorist group by the US Government. They are already being hunted down as if they are a top threat. The words terrorist, cyber terrorist, hacker, hacktivist are all the new 'other', the new communism. The United States Government always needs a war, and to have a war, you have to have an enemy. Drugs are the enemy, meanwhile, the drug trade is in full force, stronger than ever, being run by the government. If you don't believe me that the US government is responsible for running drugs all over the world, please pull your head out of your ass and follow this link.

No, that's not good enough. Go to

Still not good enough, read this.

On August 18, 1996, the San Jose Mercury News published the first installment of a three-part series of articles concerning crack cocaine, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and the Nicaraguan Contra army. The introduction to the first installment of the series read:

For the better part of a decade, a San Francisco Bay Area drug ring sold tons of cocaine to the Crips and Bloods street gangs of Los Angeles and funneled millions in drug profits to a Latin American guerrilla army run by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, a Mercury News investigation has found.

This drug network opened the first pipeline between Colombia's cocaine cartels and the black neighborhoods of Los Angeles, a city now known as the "crack" capital of the world. The cocaine that flooded in helped spark a crack explosion in urban America . . . and provided the cash and connections needed for L.A.'s gangs to buy automatic weapons.

So where was I...

The government will lie to you... about your rights, about the truth, about who the enemy is. Don't get caught up in their lies.

I bet just about everyone out there has a cousin, or at least knows of somebody that could fit a similar profile as my cousin in which their upbringing, neglect, the internet, public discomfort, drugs, pharmaceuticals, porn, gaming could lead them in a path that brings them to a website that offers them something they've never had before. Power, a voice, a chance to make a difference.

Are they really any different than you and I?

They are everywhere, you have no idea, after all they are anonymous. More and more are born every day, put in front of a screen and forgotten. Some have their switch turned on the first time a video screen is planted in their face, others have to be abused into the technology to fully believe in it, to get deeply invested. It's there, it's all there waiting to be discovered. All it takes is for someone to find a website, to download some software. How far down that rabbit hole into an alternate universe are you willing to dive?

Humans are evolving, we don't like what we see with this corrupt government, the disgusting nature of advertising and media, drones will soon be flying over our head, robots will soon be patrolling our streets.

Your 13 year old cousin might be Anonymous...and they might be our only hope.
