And this is not a conflict to be taken lightly.Read More The Threat of Fascism in Vienna is Real and it is Here
“In hindsight, we all should’ve seen this coming. The onrushing descent into a cyberpunk dystopian hellscape would only call for a totally cyberpunk response. I’m referring, of course, to Anonymous Juneteenth’s present to the world better known as #BlueLeaks, a steaming data dump on the face of the pigs that rivals Wikileaks in size and scope.”Read More A Totally Gibson Plot Twist
