Courage Is Contagious – Lessons from the Million Mask March

Here’s one of the best videos I’ve seen explaining what the Million Mask March is all about…it’s a must-watch piece of Gonzo journalism

You can expect us to win the war…

On November 5, 2013, Anonymous organized the first annual worldwide event dubbed the Million Mask March. Protests and demonstrations were organized and held in major cities worldwide, garnering the attention of the global media. On the surface it may seem that the march had little effect on the US, but it’s the mark of a new beginning…and a march in the right direction.

While the real life Anon-inspired DDoS tactic that was the Million Mask March didn’t strike fear into the hearts of those in charge, there are valuable lessons to be learned about how to organize a peaceful worldwide revolution. Data, perspectives and government responses have been tested.

The Million Mask March wasn’t the revolution…it was just a test of an emergency broadcast system in place for the protection of the world’s citizens during the revolution…any nonviolent revolution…

Anonymous is a whistle any individual can blow on any power in the entire world…

They Expect Us…

 

First and foremost, let’s pat ourselves on the back as a society. On a day where everyone should have been busy voting for governors, playing Call of Duty: Ghosts, and bumping The Marshall Mathers LP 2, an actual worldwide event did happen. The numbers in each city ranged from dozens to thousands, which lessened the physical appearance, but the impact was very much the same.

Much like the Million Man March before it, the Million Mask March inspired an entire generation to stand up in the streets and be irreverent in the face of any power that tries to impede on our freedom. It also gave the entire world a deadline…it’ll keep happening every year and get stronger and stronger until the entire populace outside of the government has joined…and at that point, the Anonymous hivemind will outnumber, overpower, and overwhelm any and all corrupt government machines.
The veil of transparency will always prevail…

Protesters at the inaugural Million Mask March were careful to be nonviolent at all times. While there may have been the occasional scuffle at the hands of violent law enforcement responses, Anonymous was largely able to demonstrate peace, despite many documented government infiltrators attempting to stir the pot. While governments want us to believe being Anonymous is akin to being a terrorist, I believe we all deserve to choose our own individual levels of privacy. Anonymous is as American as it gets.

Anonymous has grown from the human consciousness to replace that dream everyone once had about America. Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream should have already come true by now, but the corruption in our supposedly democratic government has impeded our progress as a human race. Anonymous represents everything I grew up believing America did: freedom, happiness, equality…there’s a reason Guy Fawkes is always smiling…

Although the Million Mask March didn’t put an Anon on any throne of humanity (that we know of), it proved there is an active peaceful resistance with supporters all over the world. It showed our numbers reach into each and every city in the world. There are too many of us spread out in too many places for an organized gustapo-style simultaneous raid on all of us. Too many of us have the keys to the store, and we move and make decisions much faster than any corporation or government.

 

The Million Mask March was nothing more than the beginning of organized protests. It’s not a failed AnonOps because people didn’t storm the White House. It’s a successful AnonOps because people began to test the boundaries. Look at it this way – people who have never before been a part of a protest now have one under their belts. In addition, all across the world, people streamed first-person perspectives so that any imaginative or rambunctious youth can experience a protest simulator better than any combat simulator the military spent billions on. Wise Anons such as myself are staying up late every night studying the footage and documenting the police response.
