...plan of the oligarchy for quite a while - ... Donald Trump 2016...


"Oligarchy ... term as a synonym for rule by the rich..."

Both parties are not so secretly controlled by the super rich interests. Maybe Bernie Sanders might actually have a chance to change the system. Make the 1% start to actually trickle back down prosperity to the average voter.

I have moderator points, and was going to add +funny to your comment. But really to use the description oligarchy in a negative connotation. Then actually support the richest guy. This (execthis) is clearly the /. username for Karl Rove!

Do a search someday on " Information Wars 2025, Air Force". The information is not always for machines. Our soldiers will have protection from nervous system interference. While the 'terrorists' will hear, feel, and see, etc what ever we project onto them. Ever notice how the Slashdot war helmet resembles the tin-foil hat?

They skipped IP V5, so why not skip V6? IP V7, although alpha is more likely to be adapted than IP V3, or V5. Skipping generations seems the historical precedence. Probably the military had an IP V5, and V3 for internal use that was very secure, and DARPA funds less secure information for us.

You are in a network (circle) of trust. moving data to each other is logged, and allowed/censored.

A typical LAN with verifiable security.

The internet, a net work of networks. Data can 'vanish', as a function of time/money spent on keeping the data stored.

Read the data security handbook summarized:

Never trust an operating system.
