Avengers Square Off on the Digital Battlefield, #OpParis

November 18, 2015 , , , , ,

Strange alliances are being formed after the Paris attacks.  An interesting turn of events is the war declared on twitter by Anonymous.

Three days later Anonymous is teaching people how to hack ISIS and has published guides on how to do it.  This is a new phase in avenging strategy.  Not too long ago wars were declared by heads of state and fought by nations.  ISIS initiated war in order to create a nation, and recognizes no borders or boundaries in their avenging.  The avenger archetype has always existed in history.  I sometimes feel a bit of avenger at work in my personality because I am highly sensitive to injustice.  I do indulge in both self righteousness and indignant feelings on behalf of all mistreated sentient beings.

The new world of avenging made available through hacking, retweeting, and blogging has opened up many healthy avenging options that do not involve violence or terrorism.  Now it is possible to use hashtags like #OpParis to openly attack enemies.  Digital trash talk and taunting will continue.  I wonder how much effect this digital line of attack will cause.  Since social media has been used so well to radicalize new fighters it makes a lot of sense to me to work to shut down those propaganda opportunities.  Since both groups are avengers without borders they are well pitted against each other.  It is a heavyweight fight.  I plan to hide, watch and retweet for the side of justice because I am more of a poet than an avenger.  Perhaps I will dedicate some poetry to #OpParis to show my support.  How do you  view this new style of warfare, gentle reader?  It has the feel of a video game, but it is completely real.

Couldn’t happen to nicer people. I think Anonymous could gather a lot of intel from Isis
