@crypto_hal It's a fundamental failure to understand the key vicious cycle in geopolitics. A core idea in realist theory is: much conflict happens because defensive actions by one side get misinterpreted by the other side as offensive, triggering a response. The only way out of the trap...
@crypto_hal ... is to focus on performing actions that are *unambiguously* defensive, or at least as much so as possible.
@crypto_hal The core cypherpunk ideal was that on the internet this is actually possible, because the cyber terrain is a terrain where (i) defense is very distinct from offense, and (ii) defense can actually win.
@crypto_hal Trying to "defend the open internet" primarily with political hammers sacrifices the opportunity to use this asymmetry; instead, it's an exercise in defending by attacking, and then acting surprised when this gets interpreted as.... attacking
