Personally, being a libertarian, I would never suggest that any
individual hacker shouldn't be
free to do whatever he/she wants, so long as they're not violating
anyone else's rights...
but I personally *hope* hackers steer clear of helping the US
government and it's
corrupt / evil / corporatist / cronyism-based / empire building /

Now working on technologies that have military application in terms of
self-defense; I could
never argue against that.  The use of hacker skills to oppose tyranny,
well... That I could
never criticize.
