The 'Anonymous' activists

A group of activist hackers called 'Anonymous' have declared war against the church of scientology. Is this group and their activities a good model for the men's movement? Indeed, given that they are almost certainly all men, can we, in a way, consider them as part of the men's movement? Perhaps the psychology of these men is not a million miles away from the psychology of the typical men's rights activist?

The only effective mens movement is the disorganized insurgency like anonymous. We already have that and it continues to grow with every injustice visited upon unsuspecting men.

I know an MRA is born everytime I hear the raging words, HOW CAN THEY DO THAT?

Organized mens movements are created by chivalrist who have good intentions but are in denial of reality. You can't reason with a chivalrist any more than you can a feminist. These groups eventually fall into chaos.

Even if I could, I would not discourage a chivalrist from starting up a public mens movement. They do serve the purpose of keeping feminist distracted from the real MRAs.
