There is no digital Cold War. But perpetuating that myth could create one, and that's not a good thing, writes author.

The "Cold War" was mostly a huge ocean of propaganda that allowed each side to build weapons, the weapons companies did very well. We might have lived in fear, not those who designed created and sold weapons. What is the comparison? Digital corporations? The more potential for hacking, (whether real or not) the more space for creating a profitable digital escalation.

Mutually Assured Digitization? LOL!

Yes, consider the source and tell it to the folks who deal with hundreds of thousands of cyber attacks each day and most from the PRC.

Find out who's perpetrating this myth and why and if money and control don't enter the picture I will be very surprised.

Something like the myth of Climate Change???

The myth is only veiled for a little while.

The unveiling is most unpleasant.
