Latest Musk inspired BitCoin price dumping made me reconsider this asset class as a investing opportunity.
I think it would be interesting to know if Internet will be shutdown or limited to some services (TV for example) to prepare accordingly.
What if this forum or sott gets shut down? you still have the mail list yeah?
“The World Economic Forum is already warning us that “a COVID-like global cyber pandemic is coming”, an “inevitable global cyberattack [...] that will spread faster and further than a biological virus, with an equal or greater economic impact [...] The whole world could experience cyber lockdown until a digital vaccine was developed. All business communication and data transfers would be blocked. Social contact would be reduced to people contactable by in-person visits, copper landline, snail-mail or short-wave radio [...] A 21-day global cyber lockdown could cost over $1 trillion”, adding that “COVID-19 was a known and anticipated risk. So, too, is the digital equivalent. Let’s be better prepared for that one”.

If interested, here is a site with links, though not completely updated, to US sites that are claimed not to be accessible in the EU:Many US news sites unavailable due to GDPR non-compliance
27 Sep 2020
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) took effect in June after two years of preparation. Yet more than two months later, hundreds of US news websites are still unavailable in Europe because the sites do not comply with regulations, preferring to block EU access rather than adapt. Sarah Toporoff of the Global Editors Network in Paris, said US newsrooms ‘are a benchmark for digital innovation – and it’s important that their content be available in Europe’. She stated that ‘It is naive and wholly irresponsible to think that US news holds no relevance beyond US borders... US brands should be better at knowledge sharing with their European counterparts and learn how to serve audiences within the GDPR’s parameters. Not to do so is quite undemocratic’.
I was thinking about this question heavily. I honestly would be lost without this forum. How would we connect? Surely there must be a plan for those of us that are near others on this forum to connect? Am I over reacting or relying on this network too much? I would hope if we were cut off that there would be some way to stay connected.What if this forum or sott gets shut down? you still have the mail list yeah?
The other thing to keep in mind is that even in the event of heavy censorship, how exactly will they do that?
For example, will they just can Cassiopaea.org outright via DNS, hosting company shutdown, or whatever, or will it be like, 'wear masks!' yet you can still wear certain types of 'free-breathing' masks that allows you to breathe just fine and everyone will be happy?
In other words, it may be a simple question of making the forum and SOTT private - login only. No public content.
Of course, sharing on social media would be dead, but if fully controlled, that wouldn't matter anyway. We can also forget the idea of growing except by word of mouth.
As for communication, it's the same thing. E-mail may survive, but be censored... Or not.
Would it still be possible to communicate via non-standard ports even if DNS is down? Maybe... We already have a double-encrypted chat client that allows FOTCM houses to stay in touch without the use of any 3rd-party software or servers. It could be expanded easily to encompass all FOTCM members. Of course, to do that, e-mail or some means of communication would still need to be working because everyone would need a login and password... So yeah, it's complicated, and it really depends on what happens next.
Another thing to keep in mind is this: Had you known 1 year ago that there would be Covid lockdowns and all these restrictions, what would you have done differently? Would you have told everyone to wear a certain type of mask, or tried to minimize the effects of the lockdown in some other way? Had you done so, would the current restrictions by the PTB have been even worse because they would have gotten wind of it and clamped down on THAT, too?
Knowing things in advance isn't always a good thing. Even the C's won't tell us what will happen next because:
a) They can't - free will and all that
b) They don't want to because of what we might do beforehand in reaction to those events
c) They really don't know because 'Always in Motion is the Future'
So, the way I think about it is, well... I just think about it, period! What would I do in this situation or that?
But no matter how many plans I may have, none of it matters until reality changes and we are all left to cope as well as possible.
But I'm 100% confident that we WILL cope - just like we are doing with the Covid nonsense.
Finally, I'm not 100% confident that things will turn out as so many are predicting. Very few saw Covid-19 coming. EVERYONE sees the cyberpandemic coming. The PTB often change course in response to the people's awareness of their plans. Apparently, 'surprise attacks' are necessary for whatever reason.
In any case, I'm pretty sure 2021 will be an even MORE interesting year than this one...
Scottie answered my question way back and I think quite competently. The internet is way to useful as a propaganda tool.
Ireland has just had its first major cyber attack. The Health Service executive has announced it's shutting down all of its IT systems due to a major ransome ware attack. A lot of hospital appointments have been cancelled.
I guess this is further prepping the population, in this case Ireland, for the major cyber attack that the PTB have been 'warning' about (i.e. planning).HSE Chief Clinical Officer Dr Colm Henry has said it will take "a number of days" before the HSE's computer systems are back up and running.www.rte.ie
Wouldn't be surprised if the blame is vectored towards Russia.
