Anonymous may be becoming one of the most powerful organizations on the planet.

According to news reports, the loose-knit hacktivist group Anonymous may be becoming one of the most powerful organizations on the planet.

“The entire world right now is run by information,” Anonymous hacker Chris Doyon tells Postmedia News from an undisclosed location in Canada. “Our entire world is being controlled and operated by tiny invisible 1s and 0s that are flashing through the air and flashing through the wires around us. So if that’s what controls our world, ask yourself who controls the 1s and the 0s. It’s the geeks and computer hackers of the world.”

Doyon claims that code crackers like those in Anonymous are in possession of some of the most powerful knowledge known to man. The hacker, reported to be in his late 40s, was charged last year for partaking in a Distributed Denial of Service attack on the website for the county of Santa Cruz, Calif., according to RT. Since February, the source reports, he has resided in Canada after using what he called the new “underground railroad” to escape persecution for alleged computer crimes in the States.

Doyon explains how organizations like Anonymous easily access government systems:

You know how we got access? We didn’t hack them. The access was given to us by the people who run the systems. The five-star general (and) the Secretary of Defense who sit in the cushy plush offices at the top of the Pentagon don’t run anything anymore. It’s the pimply-faced kid in the basement who controls the whole game, and Bradley Manning proved that. The fact he had the 250,000 cables that were released effectively cut the power of the US State Department in half. The Afghan war diaries and the Iran war diaries effectively cut the political clout of the US Department of Defense in half. All because of one guy who had enough balls to slip a CD in an envelope and mail it to somebody.

Doyon told RT that groups like Anonymous are currently seeking a European country that would be willing to offer them asylum.
