Anonymity is power

Recently I participated in a virtual parley where I knew nobody but the blend of anxiousness and excitement led me to exercise my anonymity in a liberal way like an orang-utan in a lake amongst its luscious friends, crocodiles. Well, I always feared anonymity because fame and being known to the world is considered an epitome of admiration. So, I always tried morosely to grow my popularity but the more the less scrumptiousness I felt. The predominance of being known is so wide that an insignificant person is anonymous. But anonymity is not so grossly despised because it attracts mysteriousness and vengeance. Those who are cinephiles, appreciate the characters that are so inconspicuous that their anonymity rings through the spectators ears. Well, the advantages of anonymity are so underrated that the necessity of being popular is glorified. “I was being myself or nonetheless trying to be myself and I did win hearts and accumulated laughter and adoration from my committee members” I had thoughts like these which ventured in my mind now and then whenever I made a mark that was excruciatingly impressive. These thoughts regardless venture in my ocean-sized brain but being anonymous increased the seriousness of it.

Though the competition sailed in a different direction, my anonymity glared on another high. Being anonymous is that incessant power where freedom of speech does not look like freedom to offend because identity plays no role. But considering that if the world knew no parallels, it will be freer and will imply the existence of constitutional rights. The social construct that we reside in does not allow us to exercise the power of anonymity because living a vacuum is not fruitful. Inconspicuous people are healthier than the known ones with pure intentions. As I write this page, I have more than 200 people in my acquaintances that I find are relevant and unremarkable but people with no identities have wings that can pave its wane and sail regardless. It is not offensive but has the unrequited potential to be controversial and mysterious or worth a thriller film. I have always wondered if everyone lived in a vacuum then nobody would be hurt or would blame the other aces that were unconstroablle. I completely agree why hackers have the coolest job and how contributively they get even when aiding the lawmakers by hacking for national interest. It may or maybe not but anonymity is within ourselves because we don’t know who we are and this better be galloping in our insomniac minds.
