Depends whose culture. Culture in the large or just hacker (in the given sense of 'underground scene') culture ? It could be argued that Anonymous vs (e.g.) CDC is apples to oranges.

Honestly I'm not sure, after reading it half a dozen times, not finding any unfamiliar words or concepts and reading the refs I still have absolutely no idea what the word salad between the intro and the end actually means.

On the other hand I very definitely can think of a bunch of pragmatic reasons (outwith the lack of extant unisonant collectivist hive minds) that people aren't currently busy openly forming underground, anarchist, borderline criminal (more in bravado than fact, but still) networks.
