Individual members of Anonymous might lose interest or move on for various reasons, but the ethics and morals driving Anonymous are a powerful socio-economic recruitment tool which promises that Anonymous itself is in for a period of sustained growth, until the problems which brought it into being are addressed by the corporations and governments that it is fighting.

And we know how likely that is…
