Disinformation-The Real Threat

puppet1-199x300The threat of Disinformation is real and needs to be dealt with as a matter of government priority. In the good old days of the cold war geographic/information isolation was a mean of controlling hearts/minds. Now it turns out people, through the power of disinformation, have been empowered to live in information silos that keep them isolated based on their religious, political or cultural convictions irrespective of environment or geographic location they live in. So freedom of information becomes quite relative, and it becomes an opportunity for abuse-including by governments; I cover it briefly here.  I would therefore urge our government to make every effort to proactively formulate policies/processes that make us better able to address the challenges of an every developing information age so we are always 1 step ahead of the curve.
