So like many of you i have been running through various imaginary scenarios where TPTB might try one last desperate attempt to hold onto power and we
all know that the MOST desperate attempt would likely invoke some kind of "nuclear option" which could be a true disaster on a scale we havent seen
perhaps ever before.
I was wargaming this with my mother the other day and she agreed with my premise. Imagine waking up one day to find out the internet is down across
the country if not most of the world. Obama and other government hacks are on the MSM telling us the Russians or some other State Actor launched a
strike upon our electronic infrastructure (a cyber attack or otherwise) and that our government had already retaliated according to established
military doctrine. We would literally be beholden to whatever they decided to tell us, without access to any alternative information outlets. So
all of the sudden we find ourselves literally in the midst of an all out declaration of war and we have no way to talk to each other, no way to
organize, no way to find out if what we are being told is even true. This would be like taking candy from a baby. As powerful as we think we are,
without a communications backup like similar to the internet we would all go into hunker down mode and ride it out, not realizing perhaps that we
COULD actually stage massive protests or do something about it.
So, its nothing new, but i'm suggesting that we really need to discuss the feasibility of a backup communications system that allows for data,
perhaps over shortwave or HAM etc. Obviously licensing is an issue, so for most people HAM would be out of the running, so what instead? Shortwave?
Here are a couple alternative networking models others have talked about, and as far as i could ascertain to date there is not real functioning
I woudl really like to hear from those who have some knowledge in routing packets of information over an informal "backbone" or distributed internet
type model and how it would work or if anyone knows of any other method we could use IMMEDIATELY to circumvent the controls over information
HAM based internet
Shortwave based Internet
