What a failed and disappointing product. Everything in this film is tainted by the wasted focus on 'Weev'. Provocative behaviour does not make anyone listen. He deserves absolutely everything he gets. Trying to defend his rhetoric and behaviour through half-assed arguments ruined the rest the films message. Truly sad.

OK, so when it comes down to it, a lot of the information in this video is already out there. Hacking has been around since the dawn of computers. Hell even Kevin Mitnick, was charged and jailed because they thought he could use a phone, whistle a tune and cause Nukes to fly.
Hacking, or Hacktivism as they term it in the video, is how this world operates. And there are 3 types of hackers. The black hat, who use their skill to enrich them selves. A white hat, who use their skill to defend. And a grey hat. Who use their skill of the betterment of society.
I would place each and every one of those interviewed on this video as Grey hats. They were not in it for the money, they were not in it to cause damage. They were doing the public a service. And that is where the title of my review comes in. You see, it is the grey hats who embrace socialism. They made the system what it is today. Where as unchecked capitalism is attempting to exploit everyone, lie to the people about their intents, and then call them selves victims because the public strikes back. Like come on folks.
TrapWire is one item i found interesting. And have since dug deeper into it. And the fact that Glenn Greenwald is in this is another bonus. It gives these folks a line of legitimacy for their actions.
One review stated that these people are criminals. That they steal and hack and since it is a crime, they should be treated as criminals. I would like to offer a different perspective if you will.
My perspective is this: If a nation ends up being run by a dictator, then it needs someone to stand up against said dictator right? If trump gets into office, and he starts acting like a fascist dictator... Someone has to stand up and lead the charge to remove said person from office. These people in this video are the ones who are standing up against the corporate dictators. Not 1 single dictator, but a multi-headed set of dictators. We live in a surveillance world folks. We all acknowledged that. Even some cop is probably reading this review now trying to determine if i am a threat or not. As such, it is our imperative in these democracies to hold businesses & government politicians and leaders accountable. Embarrassing a company is not illegal folks. Its holding them accountable.
After all, in a real democracy, we don't have protest zones or ask permission to protest. In a open society we should not fear.
Anyways, an excellent movie and i would recommend anyone interested to watch it and then do their research into what was mentioned in the documentary.
Oh, and Thank you Edward Snowden!
It's ridiculous how grandiose and narcissistic these neckbeards in this documentary are. They by their own admission are committing crimes, stealing emails, giving protected emails to the public, and committing espionage, and then they are getting upset when the government arrests them.
The documentary focuses mostly on Weev, an internet troll, who even blames the Jews all the time just to be controversial and obnoxious, who was arrested because he hacked AT&T by "just doing arithmetic" which revealed some email addresses.
The problem is that he thinks he was arrested for free speech or arithmetic. When in fact, he was arrested because he hacked a list of emails and gave it to the public, trying to expose and embarrass AT&T and government in essence VIOLATING THE PRIVACY of individuals working for government. It's hilarious how hypocritically they defend privacy rights while violating privacy rights of others using hacks.
None of these hackers contacted the company to say "hey you have a security flaw here, let me help you." They all hacked, embarrassed, and publicly showed off their hacks to others. It's criminal.
Ironically, they say things like "this government is oppressing me and all I do is speak out using 1st amendment." When in fact, they are literally encouraging people to commit crimes against the US. They are labeled the enemy of the state, because they literally admit to being the enemy of the state.
They are literally attacking and hacking the United States... And then pretending like they are only doing free speech and being persecuted unfairly.
PRO-TIP: IF YOU ARE ATTACKING A COUNTRY, ITS GOVERNMENT, ITS CORPORATIONS, YOU ARE THE ENEMY OF THAT COUNTRY AND THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO PROSECUTE YOU.
