Detecting Techniques of 4th Generational Informational Warfare


“Fourth-generation warfare (4GW) is conflict characterized by a blurring of the lines between war and politics, combatants, and civilians” (and I’ll add propaganda and actual journalism as also occupying the very same battlesphere).

Does anybody remember the ‘Journo-list‘ scandal from 2008 that was so under-reported that it dropped off of everyone’s radar scope, but never actually went away?

Does anyone remember what actually actually STARTED “Gamer-gate”?

More recently, the coordinated orchestrated hysteria against Trump (insert scandal of the day here) that seem to all seem to reference the very same talking points?

These are all examples of: “The collusion is the corruption“.

Anyways, if any readers out there are well-schooled in the area of ‘discrete math‘ I’d like to hear from you in the thread or for you to drop the Cat Man an e-mail and he will point you in the right direction.

    Discrete math like City TV’s news-crawl (via the AP undoubtedly) reporting that Obama created approx. 200,000 new jobs!!1!! but somehow unemployment went up?

      No, more like the really weird math stuff that I took in college, but have since forgotten.

  • TRUMP 2016! – there’s really no other choice if you want America to survive until 2020.

    Although the coordinating principle behind the anti-Trump hysteria is … The Donald’s own stupid statements; the ones which have to be walked back the next day, or hour, on a regular basis.
