The direct action group Anonymous has gained a great deal of attention in recent years as a result of its various "ops", usually targeted against governments and large corporations.
However, because of its deliberately amorphous nature, claimed lack of leaders, etc., I find it difficult to get a clear grasp of its overall aims.
Has any serious analysis been done of the (perhaps emergent) ideology of Anonymous? Can it reasonably be described as anarchist, anti-capitalist or something else?
Is it even reasonable to call it a political movement in the first place?
