On a similar but more committed front, the New York SCP are culture jammers extraordinaire. Bravely countering electronic surveillance cameras throughout their city and challenging recent advocacy for curtailed freedoms, they invoke Benjamin Franklin's statement that "[t]hey that can give up essential essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

Their site compiles commentaries, manifestos, descriptions of their actions, hate letters, etc. all in enthusiastic but ethically anarchistic fashion.
