Is There A Conflict?

Hackers tend largely to be young men. Ayn Rand fans tend largely to be young men and those who haven't grown out of it.

So I was wondering, when reading about Anonymous and all those other hackers who believe that information should be free, if those (largely) young men also believe that everyone should be free to make as much money as they can any way they can. And, if so, how they reconcile their right to disrupt others' secrecy and commerce.

Or is this how the Hobbesian war of all against all develops?
