Extreme Tech has the article An unknown state may be running drills for taking down the entire internet.
Read the article to see why the following excerpt is so significant.
The Russian government seems to be looking into the feasibility of making do with a Russian-bloc-only intranet with only semi-porous connections to the larger online world. If it did manage to implement such a system, cutting off the global internet would be far less harmful to their own interests. In China the process is even further along, as the country continues to pioneer frankly incredible technologies and procedures to further lock down the internet. What has once been dismissed as a fool’s errand is now a reality: the highly regulated, deeply censored Chinese internet is here, and it is well on its way to being able to make do without the corrupting cyber-influence of outside thoughts.
Would you like either a Trump or a Clinton to take us to the final world war over something like this? Or would you rather have a president that would look for a solution that did not entail the destruction of the world? The candidate that comes to my mind is Jill Stein. There comes a point when we can’t depend on bluster and threats any more. Don’t discount the possibility that the unknown state in the title of the article could be the USA.
