1 in 4 hackers work for the U.S. government

The FBI and US Secret Service – the two lead agencies in the fight against cybercrime in the US – have used the threat of prison to create an army of informers, according to an investigation by The Guardian. A climate of mistrust has been sown among criminal hackers as a result of this process.

"Owing to the harsh penalties involved and the relative inexperience with the law that many hackers have, they are rather susceptible to intimidation,"

"I want hear about *any* hacker cases with multiple defendants 
where no one snitched. Anyone? I think 25% is a LOW,"
- Kevin Mitnick - former hacker turncoat

The deal as it appears to me, the U.S. government is on its last days.
The ship has sunk, and the political puppets & pawns are struggling to nab any bits & pieces they can.
In doing so, their actions have become blatant & obvious leading to much scrutiny by an awakened public.
This awareness poses a serious threat to the system.
Now they scramble to censor those awakened in an effort to keep the public still under the belief that their precious government can do no wrong.
These days the key voice of the people is the internet. 

"would it have been better if we never invented the internet?"

They strive to control the web in order to curb dissidence.
Their goal will be achieved if the American majority continue to ignore the writing on the wall.
One of the means to which they seek to mute public dissent is the various CyberSecurity acts they continuously propose which cloak themselves under the guise of just causes such as curbing copyright infringement or threats to national security.
Most can agree either one or the other is a threat or grossly abused violation.
But within the context of the bills they propose are vague statements which will surely be used to terminate alternative news & overall public opinion.
Conveniently for those who wish to silence the 1st amendment, 'cyber threats' are currently torrential.
Most assumingly bleed the many flaws of the internet for profit, others for a cause they believe in, 
but take into consideration the fact that 1/4 of the hackers work for the U.S. government. 
Do the Math!

"You wanted to know who I am, Zero Cool? 
Well, let me explain the New World Order. 
Governments & corporations need people like you and me. 
We are Samurai... the Keyboard Cowboys... 
and all those other people who have no idea what's going on 
are the cattle... Moooo."
- The Plague *Hackers*
