Global Governance The Digital Domain & The Death of Internet in 2022

Securing The Net: Global Governance in The Digital Domain was a White Paper written in September 2013. 

This report was produced within the framework of the Global Governance 2022 program, organized by the Global Public Policy Institute in Berlin, in collaboration with partner institutions in the United States (The Brookings Institution and Princeton University), China (Tsinghua University and Fudan University), and Germany (Hertie School of Governance). 

The Global Governance Futures Group symbiotic with the Global Public Policy Institute(GPPi) outlines Specific Methodologies and Scenarios on the Future of Cyber Risk and Governance. 

The 2013 Report Outlines The Following: 

"Could the Internet actually die? The path to this outcome might be precipitated by an inability to address growing mistrust, the continued existence and exploitation of major cyber vulnerabilities, and mass fear created by new kinds of cyber attacks. "

'SCENARIO 1: “CYBER DEATH” – THE END OF THE INTERNET AS WE KNOW IT'

  • an “incubation period” during which steadily growing Sino-American [CHINA-AMERICAN] tensions, an interstate cyber incident as well as the continued militarization of cyberspace led to a gradual disconnection of various sectors of critical infrastructure from the Internet;

  • ›  an “outbreak phase,” in which a “tsunami” of cyber crime led to a collapse of e-commerce and forced governments, overwhelmed by the volume of crime in cyberspace, to develop secure, parallel network architectures that conformed to national and regional boundaries;

  • ›  finally, the “passing of the ‘old’ Internet,” initiated by Russia, China, and Germany following a global panic during a brief period of “cyber terror.” 

    The collapse of e-commerce, which threw the global economy into a recession, was paired with a global run on banks. The lack of confidence in banks led to the withdrawal of private savings at record levels. This near-immediate global collapse of the financial system spurred governments to action.

              'SCENARIO 2: “CYBER PARADISE"

  • ›  bilateral and multilateral efforts between states that ultimately led to a General Agreement on Confidence Building in Cyberspace (GACBC);

  • ›  the diffusion and increased sophistication of cyber security systems/infrastructure, in particular advanced cryptographic and “electric fence” systems;

  • ›  and lastly, the creation of a regime centering around the International Cyber Security Treaty.

As the Internet was expanded further into all aspects of daily economic and social interactions, attention to the topic by politicians and the media continued to grow. Henceforth, a conference program was initiated that included not only the US and China but also the European Union, India, Russia, and Brazil. The discussions in this “cyber club” carried over to G20 meetings, as cyber security became a priority issue in national defense.
 

 

 

 As 2021 now Comes to an End we heard the Echos within IT to Safeguard our Legacy Industrial Control SystemsUpdating ICS and the Electrical Grid is Something a lot of us have been Harping on way before 2021. Unfortunately, either from State Sponsored Actors or from Political Mismanagement, Gov'ts tend to wait for something to break before addressing issues. Perhaps destruction and Order out of Chaos is the fix for these Policy Makers? The Great Reset now Comes to Mind when thinking about the Future of the Internet as we know it. The Cyber Trends for 2022 will Include Attacks on our Legacy ICS. 2022 Will See Cyber Attacks now becoming Physical. Cyber War will No longer only affect Data or IT Systems. 2022 will see the Age where a Cyber Attacks Could Result whether We have Power in the Winter to Gas Shortages across the country just like what we saw with the Colonial Pipe Line Hack. There will be More Ransomware Along with, IoT, Block Chain/Crypto Currency Wallet Attacks and Deepfakes will be in the headlines in 2022. The Push for a New Global Internet like our now Global Economy will be at the Forefront of all Nations and the UN in 2022. The Internet has already become a vastly different place from when I grew up with it in the 90's. We already saw the Great Social Media Purge of Dissenting voices in 2018. Will we allow the Internet to just become another Policy for Gov'ts to ruin and a Topic for Do-Nothing Politicians to Campaign and Pass Laws on? Or will we say Government Failures in Protecting ICS or Cyberspace & Political Overreach Should Not Equate to Censorship and the Monopolization of the Once Free Internet.

Lets Bullet Point Some Additional Reading on These Trends.

The Pandora Papers: Expose World Leaders Offshore Accounts: Global Conspiracy: Rich Never Pay Taxes



 

ICIJ: The 150 news outlets that joined the investigative partnership include The Washington Post, the BBC, The Guardian, Radio France, OŇ°tro Croatia, the Indian Express, Zimbabwe’s The Standard, Morocco’s Le Desk and Ecuador’s Diario El Universo.

 

  The Pandora Papers investigation unmasks the covert owners of offshore companies, incognito bank accounts, private jets, yachts, mansions, even  artworks by Picasso, Banksy and other masters  providing more information than what’s usually available to law enforcement agencies and cash-strapped governments.

Millions of leaked documents and the biggest journalism partnership in history have uncovered financial secrets of 35 current and former world leaders, more than 330 politicians and public officials in 91 countries and territories, and a global lineup of fugitives, con artists and murderers.

The secret documents expose offshore dealings of the King of Jordan, the presidents of Ukraine, Kenya and Ecuador, the prime minister of the Czech Republic and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair. The files also detail  financial activities of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “unofficial minister of propaganda” and more than 130 billionaires from Russia, the United States, Turkey and other nations.

The leaked records reveal that many of the power players who could help  bring an end to the offshore system instead benefit from it  stashing assets in covert companies and trusts while their governments do little to slow a global stream of illicit money that enriches criminals and impoverishes nations.

Among the hidden treasures revealed in the documents:

  • A $22 million chateau in the French Riviera  replete with a cinema and two swimming pools  purchased through offshore companies by the Czech Republic’s populist prime minister, a billionaire who has railed against the corruption of economic and political elites.
  • More than $13 million tucked in a secrecy-shaded trust in the Great Plains of the United States by a scion of one of Guatemala’s most powerful families, a dynasty that controls a soap and lipsticks conglomerate that’s been accused of harming workers and the earth.
  • Three beachfront mansions in Malibu purchased through three offshore companies for $68 million by the King of Jordan in the years after Jordanians filled the streets during Arab Spring to protest joblessness and corruption.

The secret records are known as the Pandora Papers.

The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists obtained the trove of more than 11.9 million confidential files and led a team of more than 600 journalists from 150 news outlets that spent two years sifting through them, tracking down hard-to-find sources and digging into court records and other public documents from dozens of countries.

The leaked records come from 14 offshore services firms from around the world that set up shell companies and other offshore nooks for clients often seeking to keep their financial activities in the shadows. The records include information about the dealings of nearly three times as many current and former country leaders as any previous leak of documents from offshore havens.

In an era of widening authoritarianism and inequality, the Pandora Papers investigation provides an unequaled perspective on how money and power operate in the 21st century  and how the rule of law has been bent and broken around the world by a system of financial secrecy enabled by the U.S. and other wealthy nations.

The findings by ICIJ and its media partners spotlight how deeply secretive finance has infiltrated global politics  and offer insights into why governments and global organizations have made little headway in ending offshore financial abuses.

An ICIJ analysis of the secret documents identified 956 companies in offshore havens tied to 336 high-level politicians and public officials, including country leaders, cabinet ministers, ambassadors and others. More than two-thirds of those companies were set up in the British Virgin Islands, a jurisdiction long known as a key cog in the offshore system.

At least $11.3 trillion is held “offshore,” according to a 2020 study by the Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Because of the complexity and secrecy of the offshore system, it’s not possible to know how much of that wealth is tied to tax evasion and other crimes and how much of it involves funds that come from legitimate sources and have been reported to proper authorities.

CONFRIMED: Pentagon Documents Show Pandemic Planned in 2018

 

 

UPDATE* NIH admits Fauci Lied about Wuhan Funding

 

CONFIRMED: Scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and their affiliated partners attempted to secure $14 million in funding from the Pentagon’s scientific arm DARPA to genetically alter viruses, including bat coronaviruses, and make them more infectious to humans, just eighteen months prior to the subsequent outbreak and pandemic.

 

Wuhan and US scientists were planning to release enhanced airborne coronavirus particles into Chinese bat populations to inoculate them against diseases that could jump to humans, leaked grant proposals dating from 2018 show....

 

The London Telegraph reports the findings revealed by Drastic, a web-based investigations team set up by scientists from across the world to look into the origins of Covid-19.

The documents they obtained, confirmed as genuine by former US government officials, show that DARPA turned down the request, saying the plans for yet more gain of function research were TOO DANGEROUS to the human population.

 

The Telegraph notes that the documents reveal the Wuhan scientists “submitted plans to release skin-penetrating nanoparticles containing ‘novel chimeric spike proteins’ of bat coronaviruses into cave bats in Yunnan, China.”

 

The documents also show that the plan involved genetically altering the bat coronaviruses to add “human-specific cleavage sites,” essentially making it easier for the virus to get into human cells.

 

This is EXACTLY what was discovered when Covid-19 was first genetically sequenced, prompting many scientists to suggest the virus had been genetically manipulated in a lab.

 

The documents reveal that the same cast of characters already under scrutiny regarding gain of function research in Wuhan submitted the plan to DARPA. Both British zoologist Peter Daszak of EcoHealth Alliance, who later attempted to shut down scientific debate on the possibility of a lab leak, and the “bat woman” Dr Shi Zhengli were intimately involved.

Angus Dalgleish, Professor of Oncology at St Georges, University of London, who maintains that the pandemic was likely a result of a genetically altered virus, said the research may have gone ahead even without the funding.

 

“This is clearly a gain of function, engineering the cleavage site and polishing the new viruses to enhance human cell infectibility in more than one cell line,” Dalgleish said.

 

The Telegraph notes that the plans were rejected by DARPA, with the agency noting “It is clear that the proposed project led by Peter Daszak could have put local communities at risk”, and further warning that proper consideration of the consequences of enhancing the viruses had not been undertaken.

 

Let that sink in. Even DARPA, the secretive military weapons development agency, the ones who have invented implantable microchips, cyborg dogs and drone killing machines said that the WIV gain of function plan was nuts.

The Telegraph also notes that a “Covid-19 researcher from the World Health Organisation (WHO), who wished to remain anonymous, said it was alarming that the grant proposal included plans to enhance the more deadly disease of Middle-East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS).”

 

“The scary part is they were making infectious chimeric MERS viruses,” the source warned.

 

Those findings dovetail with previous revelations in documents obtained under the FOIA showing that lab tampering was undertaken on MERS-like coronaviruses in several labs around Wuhan, including a level three biocontainment facility, which has lesser security that the level four labs previously mentioned in relation to the outbreak.

 

MERS viruses have 30-50 percent fatality rates, with the source noting “If one of their receptor replacements made MERS spread similarly (to COVID-19), while maintaining its lethality, this pandemic would be nearly apocalyptic.”

 

Drastic issued a statement on the latest findings urging “Given that we find in this proposal a discussion of the planned introduction of human-specific cleavage sites, a review by the wider scientific community of the plausibility of artificial insertion is warranted.”

 

The accumulating scientific evidence that points to a potential coronavirus lab leak, as well as China’s record on bio-security, and its constant stonewalling, warrants an adequate global independent investigation, which hasn’t happened.
