It hasn't received attention becuase there are so many bs threads on here and so much bs in the main stream media that the really good topics that
need to be discussed get lost in the mix.
I bet ANY hacker of note wouldn't admit to being "as slow as 30 minutes" to take down the internet in this day and age.
When Government funded hackers start taking control, all bets are off. You can put money on the Chinese Government having whole teams of Government
funded hackers finding vulnerabilities in the US and Western communication systems, and likely countries like Iran and Israel are doing the same
things as well.
And BTW, if you think Israel wouldn't do anything to harm the USA, you have my laughter in your ears.
Now the Government have the kill switch (and believe me, they do already in the USA, they just want to make it legal), they will be able to shut it
down at the flip of a switch, and have full control over what constitutes a "National Security threat" giving them the power to do so.
If the Chinese ever wanted to crash the US economy, not only could they just sell their $1 trillion in US dollars they physically have stockpiled,
they would also do this through a massive cyber attack.
Because everyone relies so much on electronic systems, humankind is more vulnerable now than they have been at any time in our history, as we have
lost the basic skills needed for survival.
