Yes, but hackers have always been somewhat outside "the system" (and
inside the system, lol), so hackers grew up and h/activism became part
of it.  You can't see events like the "Columbine School Massacre"
which took some of our own, and not be an activist.  If so, you're a
sell-out.  I strongly suggest you watch "Bowling for Columbine" if
you're not aware of it.
