The hacktivist group Anonymous recently created a political party called The Humanity Party, or THumP. Officially announced via press release on June 16, The Humanity Party wants to make some serious changes to the existing political process in the United States.
According to the party's platform, the party will not use "tactics of fear and intimidation" that some who are affiliated with Anonymous use and have used in the past to send messages to government entities and individuals. The Humanity Party says that these methods have "never worked to unite humanity" or to "promote peace."
The party also refers to itself as the "official voice of Anonymous" and said that from now forward, it would be "easy to determine whether a message that is posted on the internet, or through any other venue of social media, is authorized by the official voice of Anonymous." Unlike other video messages posted by Anonymous, The Humanity Party will use a person's voice in distorted form, rather than a machine-generated voice.
The Humanity Party said that it will not take donations, due to the corruptive power of money in government, but rather will rely on those aligned with the party to spread messages using social media.
According to The Humanity Party's press release, the group is organized around three objectives:
Establish and promote the possibility of a ONE World Government and a new Constitution that guarantees and provides worldwide basic human rights to ALL people of Earth. These inalienable human rights include the Five Basic Necessities of Life ("FBNL"): free healthy food and water, secure and safe housing, basic clothing, health and mental care, and education.
Introduce a plan to unify capitalistic and socialistic agendas and ideologies to provide the FBNL free of charge.
Promote peace and unity through education and common sense disclosures, thereby providing unprecedented evidence that the world's major religions have been, are, and will continue to be the cause of the world's social ills.
Throughout the lengthy video explaining the party and it's goals, the narrator lays out a vaguely utopian, adamantly nonviolent, and in some ways libertarian plan to "bring peace and goodwill" to "all humans." Despite not having monetary funds and rejecting identifiers such as gender, race, nationality, and sexuality as a part of their platform and group identity, the party considers itself to be a "viable alternative" to the existing government.
The Humanity Party did not immediately reply to Complex's request for comment.
