Coleman seems to understand the origins of Anonymous but not its current state. The top layer of what Anonymous appears to be, what it says it is, no longer holds up to scrutiny. The centralization of power through "operations" that persist beyond their original goals reveals a set of leaders who maintain power not only through respect but through varying degrees of coercion, threat, group identity, propaganda, and acculturation. All pretense of "fragmented plurality" began to fade with the V for Vendetta masks. Not only that, but having myself reached status of celebrity, along with Brown, informal power and authority has also manifest. Anon has attacked itself more and more, because of this growing hypocrisy and general movement away from Anarchy.
