*** Beats the idea of being anonymous though. Guy Fawkes, besides
being romanticized by Alan Moore, was recuperated by Hollywood, and
the GF-mask-market probably contributed its fair share to finance the
struggle of the MPAA vs. the people to ensure that everyone is a
pirate, everyone is a criminal, everyone is a terrorist.

In that sense, shifting from Guy Fawkes masks (TM) to Ed. Snowden
masks would simply reaffirm the original intent of Alan Moore, and
Anonymous, and re-appropriate the myth with our own memes, and not one
imposed by marketing, and the very power machine that we are
denouncing and opposing.

Wearing a Guy Fawkes mask is like saying: I recognize myself as a
bomber against a corrupted establishment, I support
propaganda-by-the-fact, hence you are right to oppose violence to me;
while wearing a Snowden mask is more akin to: you-in-a-power-position
are telling me I'm a terrorist, a liar, a defector, a traitor, and
you're treating me like a criminal. But I'm no criminal. I'm a
citizen, a honest citizen. My only crime is telling the truth, and
exposing your crimes. You're the criminal, you're the one who's using
violence against the truthful force of my integrity.
