This is our world now... the world of the electron and the switch, the<br />beauty of the baud. We make use of a service already existing without paying<br />for what could be dirt-cheap if it wasn't run by profiteering gluttons, and<br />you call us criminals. We explore... and you call us criminals. We seek<br />after knowledge... and you call us criminals. We exist without skin color,<br />without nationality, without religious bias... and you call us criminals.<br />You build atomic bombs, you wage wars, you murder, cheat, and lie to us<br />and try to make us believe it's for our own good, yet we're the criminals.<br /> Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is<br />that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like.<br />My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive me<br />for.<br /> I am a hacker, and this is my manifesto. You may stop this individual,<br />but you can't stop us all... after all, we're all alike.
