This video has a complex back story, which you can easily Google to explore. I’m sharing it because the story it tells seems plausible to me based on technology and programs I have seen with my own eyes as a proposal writer for DoD contracts in war gaming projects. That is to say, I have seen large-scale collaboration platforms like the ShadowNet application, and know for an experienced fact that such things have been commoditized for private, commercial use.
It is interesting that the Senate released its 1000-page report on Russian attempts to influence the 2016 election the same week this video was published, then banned, on YouTube. Section J of that report essentially — though obliquely — validates the video’s basic message.
