Anonymous is not an easy organization to define. In fact, it is not really organized. Anyone can join Anonymous, anyone can be an operative, anyone can start their own operation, but beware of fakes. Confused? Here is a small sampling of Anonymous video messages to help explain. We've also thrown in some LOLs for fun.
"You can not join Anonymous. Nobody can join Anonymous. Anonymous is not an organization. It is not a club, a party or even a movement. There is no charter, no manifest, no membership fees. Anonymous has no leaders, no gurus, no ideologists. In fact, it does not even have a fixed ideology. All we are is people who travel a short distance together — much like commuters who meet in a bus or tram: For a brief period of time we have the same route, share a common goal, purpose or dislike. And on this journey together, we may well change the world."
