Amelia Andersdotter makes some valid points here. Please notice that she felt strongly enough about this to speak contrary to the position her party had previously announced. Personally, I think such an act is characteristic of a leader who will examine the credence of a given situation, rather than yield to doxa. Living in a time when we hardly expect a politician to be anything more than a pandering sophist, I feel that such a refreshing act deserves a bit of praise. So, great job, Miss Andersdotter! I hope you hold onto this quality and it serves your peers well.
That said, I’ve personally gone back and forth about how I feel about DDoS. It is important to note that this is being used as a means for young people to have their voice heard in a political climate which otherwise ignores or labels them as “politically insensitive.” While they have now demonstrated that this is not true, I really can’t find justification for making a criminal of a 16 year old net activist.
