Anonymous Bosnia – What Have We Learned?

1

Today, while enjoying my regular reading routine, I read a short tweet about Anonymous Bosnia.

Being from a very adjacent (once upon a time the same) country, it grabbed my interest instantly. If you have heard of Bosnia before, that was probably due to the fact that it was heavily devastated by war during the 90′s and the problems they are facing now – as a country that doesn’t really function very well (or at all), just like the rest of the Balkans.



Too many scars, too many problems.

This is exactly why I was excited about the idea that some people in Bosnia are actually thinking and hopefully doing something about the freedom of information, which is a very important part of our lives.

Freedom of information is not just a question of internet privacy, the problem is much broader, it is so subtly sewn in our everyday lives, that most of the time we are either not noticing it, or choosing to ignore it. Until recently, we were condemned to watching carefully prepared reports on radio and tv – but today we have the tools of building and learning in our hands. Still, most of the time we end up pleased by the censored information that is given to us, instead of actively pursuing it. This is exactly the kind of thinking that leads to new wars and mass murders. This comfortable acceptance of the provided info is what turns people into mindless zombies with no thirst for the truth, only the thirst for blood.

I refuse to accept that there is only one truth in a black-and-white world. The world is not black-and-white and this is why WE ARE THE INFORMATION. Support Anonymous Bosnia by translating videos or writing articles on their blog.
