Marcus Aurelius: Time for US to Get Serious About Setting Everyone Else “Ablaze”? — Sun Tzu Comment

Marcus Aurelius

Marcus Aurelius

Two articles follow:  one posits a seemingly global anti-US opposition, an Anti-American Network (AAN), and the other posits that political warfare is the answer to the Middle East portion of the problem.  IMHO, both are worth considering.  Further believe that, with respect to Boot & Doran’s approach, (a) coverage needs expansion to cover all the opponents Hirsch posits and (b) political warfare is a necessary but not sufficient component of our response and an NCTC-centric structure is probably not the way to go.  We already have policy in place to deal with these kinds of things but it probably needs revision in light of international and domestic politics.  In my view, what we need is national leadership (read:  POTUS and Congress) with the guts and principles of Britain’s WWII leader Winston Churchill supported by an Executive Branch organizational structure combining the best features of their Special Operations Executive (SOE) and Political Warfare Executive (PWE), one authorized, directed, and capable of covertly, surgically and virtually “setting our adversaries ablaze.”   Neither the currently tasked organization nor U.S Special Operations Command, or even the two together, is presently that structure.)

El manifiesto de “Open Source Everything” refuerza el movimiento de transparencia informática como mecanismo opositorio a la corrupción y al poder elitista, así como esbozar un mecanismo para detonar la expansión de la conciencia en su relación trina con la información y la energía.

The Open Source Everything Manifesto: Chapter 7 Public Intelligence and the Citizen Extract III

[In combination with free OpenBTS mobile telephony for the five billion poor] I see cities, countries, nations, regions recognizing that the relatively minor cost of a call center is well worth its benefits–capable of all necessary languages and able to handle the load of calls with a mix of centralized and distributed participants, some paid, most volunteers.  This then becomes the lever that will move the community or nation out of poverty and into a position where the distributed intelligence of the community or nation is able to create infinite wealth while also achieving a sustainable peace.

. . . . . . . . . .

The essence of this manifesto is found in the proven fact that transparency and truth foster trust, and trust lowers the cost of doing business.  The industrial era carried the information pathologies to extremes and enabled corruption at the highest levels, using secrecy to avoid accountability.

. . . . . . . .

Empowered by open software, hardware, spectrum, data access, and intelligence, we are within reach of open democracy.
