"LulzSec has managed to latch on to something primal, and long absent from public discourse: public subversiveness. By 'subversiveness' I do not mean conduct which is illegal by necessity, but rather I mean a flagrant refusal to behave, an attempt to change social conditions through ridicule or contrast, grounded in an ethically legitimate and justifiable desire to change attitudes to power and the way things are."
