Take my word for it. The way things are going, the Anonymous, representing a nebula fighting for their rights in internet, could become the largest political group in the European Parliament in 2014.
Forget the French elections, where the Anonymous play no role. France is as democratic as Russia, in terms of having only the “approved” candidates running. But in terms of shape of things to come, most EU countries the Anonymous, in the form of Pirate parties or in some other way, could make a stash.
I don’t necessarily see this as bad news, although for many, this made sound like the Cultural Revolution of Chairman Mao. Never mind. As traditional political groups are down, somebody else will take the upper hand. The Anonymous are not extremists, they are a bit like you and me. They only need to take the mask down, and play the political game.
