COVID COULD SHAPE THE NEW WORLD ORDER

"For something like this to happen virtually overnight is very much unprecedented," Myllyvirta told DW...All this looks like good news for the planet — at least in the short term. "Suppose you were a policymaker, and you were thinking about what you would do to lower emissions — you just got a pretty good instruction," says Amy Jaffe, director of the Council on Foreign Relations' Energy Security and Climate Change program.

4/1/20 Special Issue: How We Will All Solve the Climate Crisis
We only have one Earth. And we have the technology to save it.
Wednesday, April 1, 2020 at 5:02 AM
Translated literally, the word "pandemic" means "pertaining to all people." As of this writing, the novel coronavirus has spread to more than 170 countries around the world. It’s an acute, rapidly unfolding crisis that we are facing all together, as an entire planet. But just before Covid-19 burst onto the scene, we at WIRED had been spending months thinking intensely about the more chronic, and more slowly unfolding crisis that pertains to everyone on Earth: Climate change.
You could think of the coronavirus as a painful and very high-stakes practice round for facing an inexorable global threat: Its danger is bearing down on us whether we like it or not, but we can bend the curve in humanity’s favor if we act together and make the right moves.
When we decided to dedicate an entire issue to the climate crisis, we knew we didn’t have time or patience for stories that would instill despair. Stories that would tell you, yet again, how bad things were. Or that would bother with the absurd debate about the existence of global warming. Instead we wanted to identify what those right moves are. We asked: What can we do right now, with the tech we have, to make the biggest impact on the climate in the next ten years?

FILE - Protesters wave Lebanese flags during an anti-government protest in Beirut, Lebanon, Nov. 10, 2019. The Arabic writing beneath the fist reads "Revolution.
It was a revolutionary year. In more than 50 countries spontaneous street alliances formed of disgruntled urban workers and left-behind rural folk.
Of course, there were dedicated reformers, ardent revolutionaries and hardened nationalists among them, too, and fearful governments tottering on the edge immediately accused them of causing all the trouble and of grasping at impossible theories of government or being manipulated by foreign enemies.
This year or 1848? The description could be used for either... the year Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels published The Communist Manifesto..
In 1848, the printing presses were the communication channels for the demands for change... the expression of anger, much as social media sites and mobile phone apps are used now to organize and spread the word...

The Emerging Risk of Virtual Societal Warfare
Social Manipulation in a Changing Information Environment
https://www.rand.org/pubs/research_reports/RR2714.html
https://www.rand.org/content/dam/rand/pubs/research_reports/RR2700/RR271...
Research conducted by RANDNATIONAL SECURITY RESEARCH DIVISION

The year 2016 and beyond saw an explosion of interest in issues of disinformation, propaganda, information manipulation and fakery, “fake news,” “Truth Decay,” and related trends—a broad phenomenon that can be termed hostile social manipulation. In this study, we define this concept as the purposeful, systematic generation and dissemination of information to produce harmful social, political, and economic outcomes in a target country by affecting beliefs, attitudes, and behavior. Examples of this rising challenge include Russian efforts to influence elections and sow discord in the West through propaganda and disinformation; the role of social media platforms such as Facebook in spreading such misinformation; and burgeoning Chinese programs to shape regional narratives and gain political leverage in specific countries. U.S. intelli- gence services have concluded that Russia employed such techniques to influence the 2016 election, and Moscow continues to employ them— sometimes brazenly despite U.S. warnings—in the United States and Europe.

As significant as these developments have been, they may only represent the beginning of what an aggressive nation can accomplish with techniques and technologies designed to disrupt and shape the information environment of a target country. This report’s primary conclusion is that, as significant as social manipulation efforts have already been, the United States and other democracies have only glimpsed the tip of the iceberg of what these approaches may someday be able to achieve.

911 Terrorist World War 3 Still Expands 18 Years Later

DIGEST: US 911 expanding state terrorist world war 3
18 YEARS MORE US PERMANENT WORLD TERROR AND DESTRUCTION TO SAVE ITS ‘WORLD ORDER’ FROM REVOLUTION
911 US GREENLIGHT: IT’S ALL LEGAL OFFICIAL DECLARATION OF LIBERAL FASCIST STATE  PERMANENT STATE OF EMERGENCY
US imperialist existence, is dependent on preventing or destroying communist revolution for classless society. This requires counterrevolutionary war to create a high-tech AI world order. In it’s fascist scheme, politically and philosophically akin to Plato's "formed ideas" Republic ruled by US governors of its ‘full spectrum dominant’ world order, no revolution-threatening class of billions of working and oppressed peoples.
The hitch? 911 didn’t work long as a ‘unifier’ as US wars expanded but made-in usa al qaeda conveniently spawned another US state terrorist proxy ISIS redeployed from Iraq in 2014. [ ISIS :2012 Pentagon Document: http://www.judicialwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Pg.-291-Pgs.-287-293-JW-v-DOD-and-State-14-812-DOD-Release-2015-04-10-final-version11.pdf]
So US needs to unify the world against the world’s major enemy, itself US. Which its Trump-card appears to do by threatening all:
“Trump to Pope Francis: 'ISIS wants to get you'”: "I'm gonna have to scare the pope ...The pope, I hope, can only be scared by God... if you look at what's going on, they better hope capitalism works because it's the only thing we have right now. And it's a great thing when it works properly...In our country ...it has not been working properly"

911 didn’t work long as a ‘unifier’ when wars expanded but made-in usa al qaeda conveniently spawned another US state terrorist proxy called ISIS redeployed from Iraq in 2014.

Bahamas "Failed Cooperation"

digest: Every strategic US move —including Trump-card play -- is part of its global terror war to salvage a major chunk of its collapsed post WW2 global dictatorship. Kissinger explained US has no permanent friends or enemies, it has interests, summarizing both US imperialist white supremacist geostrategic ‘national security/ politics, and philosophical pragmatism. US manages ‘cooperative’ Bahamian domination ---now a “failed state”.

“We are the biggest victims of climate change. But how can we fight for ourselves against bigger, global countries? How do we move forward?”
