Reviews of : LikeWar by P. W. Singer PDF Book
Inside this Book – I wish this book had had its recommendations implemented before 2016. But closing the barndoor might keep a few remaining horses inside. Social Media that dumpster fire that we can’t escape has become the nervous system of the body politic of most nations and is a theater of offensive and defensive warfare although the offense has the upper hand. Social media is used by a huge swath of humanity and is subject to new forms of manipulation more powerful than its predecessors. The election of Donald Trump is exhibit A for the damage this technology can inflict. As we attempt to salvage our political system in the aftermath of 2016 social media is also attempting to take measure against the kind of manipulation that hate groups and extremists have used so well to trash our democracy. The book lays out how social media is subject to manipulation and the techniques involved. It is good at diagnosis and has a few medicinal recommendations. Lessons for the gobsmacked.
Inside this book –LikeWar PDF Book by P. W. Singer – A must read in today’s world. I was especially blown away by the section on the propaganda uses by totalitarian states, with a lengthy discussion of the russian model of turning censorship on its head by burying the truth in a sea of lies so dense the truth gets lost or ignored. The book discusses the various ways different kinds of actors have weaponized information on a whole new level via social media and the broader implications thereof. The inescapable conclusion is that propaganda and information warfare can now accomplish things far beyond what even physical military force can do. Its effectiveness and unquestionable sway over western societies would set the late great George Orwell to hyperventilating and panic attacks. I also read this right after finishing Snyder’s “The Road To Unfreedom” which made it doubly terrifying.
