The Digital Maginot Line

Influence operations exploit divisions in our society using vulnerabilities in our information ecosystem. We have to move away from treating this as a problem of giving people better facts, or stopping some Russian bots, and move towards thinking about it as an ongoing battle for the integrity of our information infrastructure – easily as critical as the integrity of our financial markets. When it’s all done and over with, we’ll look back on this era as being as consequential in reshaping the future of the United States and the world as World War II.

This is what I am trying to get at when I say that social networks aren’t useful. There are much better methods of communication than signing up for a closed system that is purpose built to agree with you on everything. Resulting in your unwavering attention and obedience.
