  1. I agree I think a lot of this was part of a grand plan. But they forgot that other saying “no plan survives contact with the enemy”. I think everything escalated far more than they were prepared for and now they can’t backtrack because they had no back up plan.

    I also agree that several of these systems you talk about are being perfected and maybe the plan was to one day close things down. But a whole generation has grown up with the open internet and are not going to just accept that its “closed”. Plus the whole reason to close it, to keep everyone “safe” may no longer be a valid excuse. A great deal of their “plan” has destroyed the very concept of “safety” for many people so much so they won’t just roll over for it.

    Also I think people underestimate how many low tech ways there are to confuse and effectively “defeat” things like facial recognition.
    Anyway I could go on but I’m really not an expert I just happen to be acquainted with people doing research in these fields so I’ll stop now.

    So the hero/villain of Beto’s story is 23, as it is the villain of Kurt Vonnegut Jr.’s God bless you Mr. Rosewater — have you read that one lately? It’s a good’n.

    I agree with this for the most part, especially the last sentence. Reason being, I think a major factor in all this subject matter that never gets enough attention is just basic human stupidity and incompetence. I think we have been conditioned to believe that the more powerful and high up a person or institution is, the more intelligent and competent they are. The older I get I more and more believe that it doesn’t matter what level of the social pyramid you are at, the essential nature of human beings is what is the great leveler. All our base instincts and pettiness and ego are what really drive the show. We have a distinct lack of wisdom and humility in our culture. What we think of as these grand, orchestrated plans that we believe are designed to only just look like cluster-fucks on the surface . . . are just that: cluster-fucks created by people who really have no idea what they are doing and with an inflated sense of their importance and proficiency.
