FBI Cybercrime Director Comments On Hacktivism 254

bdcny7927 writes "In an exclusive interview with CIO.com, the FBI official in charge of cybercrime speaks for the first time with the media specifically about hacktivism. Here, Assistant Executive Director Shawn Henry describes the threats hacktivists pose, the challenges associated with investigating them, and the FBI's success disrupting these groups. He also delivers a special message to hacktivists." The so-called special message: "My organization is a believer in civil rights and civil liberties, and the first amendment is something I hold very dear personally and professionally. I have no problem with people picketing and protesting in the street. I get all that. But the freedom for me to swing my arm ends where your nose begins. If you are impinging on others' rights, that's illegal."

    Commercial Law invented the Legal Fiction that is the PERSON. The plural form of PERSON is PEOPLE.

    You don't hear about Man or Woman in a commercial court or read it in a contract because you cannot contract with a Man or a Woman. You can only contract with the PERSON.

    So, yes, Corporations ARE PEOPLE. A Man is a Man and a Woman is a Woman. When you talk about a Man as a PERSON you are associating him with his Legal Fiction. You do this if you don't know the difference between a Sovereign Being with a Soul and a Contractual Partner, or you are deliberately referring to the PERSON.

    I enjoyed your earlier work on Time Cube *way* more than this post.
