#America is engaged in a new kind of #CivilWar. Though it's not so civil, we find very little common ground. Like most modern wars, ours is unconventional. Battle lines drawn along political ideology. Weapons of mass disinformation foment chaos & division.
Our guidons are of #memetic design.Trending #hashtags have become our battle cries. Daily skirmishes swell from #anonymous avatars, sock puppets, bots, & trolls. We've taken #humanity out of the fight—leaving only the worst of us to face-off.
Abstract as they may seem, these plans are strategically devised & implemented by internal & external entities. Opposing enemies stealthily infiltrate our groups to role play & subtly nudge the less informed in any desirable direction. Exploiting our fracture points.
Decentralized clusters are commissioned to integrate these methods to counter & pivot narratives on demand. The advanced weapon systems involve altering perception & creating alternate realities. Napalm-like censorship used to suppress opposing views in relentless inferno.
In this war we see very few physical scars. However, deep emotional & psychological wounds are left to fester. We are often left to fend for ourselves with no idea how to heal. Although, it pales in comparison to real war...it takes a toll on our psyche.
What can we do to mitigate damages? How do we triage those tormented by endless manipulation? What can be done to promote productive dialogue? How do we defend against weaponized disinfo? What metrics should be used to better inform us of these ops?
