What is terrible is that governments use hackers in order to pass ever 
more repressive laws.
That is the only topic you are good at : to be a pretext for repression, 
and a repression which hurts everybody, even the ones who never hack. 
This is the true problem.

If you were able to make your little war with your little ennemies 
without any side-effects for others, i would say, "well, let's them 
play...." but the combination governments+hackers is the worst ennemy of 
freedom of speech.

Not especially the freedom of speech of the KKK, but of everybody.
