According to Webster Dictionary, a manifesto is defined “as a written statement declaring publicly the intentions, motives, or views of its issuer.” The hacker manifesto is a deceleration that a hacker is an intelligent person with motives of curiosity and not of destruction and crime as portrayed by society. Although they may be judged by society as criminals, we can never stop a hacker, as stated in the hacker manifesto “You may stop this individual, but you can’t stop us all… after all, we’re all alike.”

My manifesto on freedom of online information… The internet has created a vast place with endless information. So much knowledge can be found on the internet. Just like everything evolves overtime, the power of knowledge has evolved. I now no longer need to wait for a book to arrive or pay for a class to learn something. When passion for knowledge is there, the internet is there to feed that passion. Why would we want to hinder learning? In this instantaneous world, we now have the power more then ever to learn. The internet keeps information in stone forever. This stone “cloud” of knowledge should be feeding us and we should not hide anything from us. No longer should humans be limited to information in order to expand our minds on our own. Academic journals and encyclopedias should be free for all people to view and read. The more we allow our selves to learn, the more we can grow as a society. Freedom of information is our human right.
