Internet Anonymity and The Attack of Fake IDs
People of diverse age groups – from the schools age kids to seniors, huddled in front of computers in their ‘community centers’, and even in public libraries, spent hours of dedicated hard work keying in the scripted ‘comments, responses, messages, tweets’ and fake ‘stories’ to post on a plethora of social networks and websites – with the objective to sway the public opinion in the ‘desired’ direction.
They do it for their ‘community’ and for their pay-masters.
Their are others who do the same as part of their job.
These tiny groups – networked together, and working in tandem with each other, swarm and overwhelm the opinion and views of a very large number of people. Utilizing this swarm tactic, they out-number and out-gun the individuals – muffling out the opposing views. This way, they make the views and opinions of a small minority prevail over the large majority.
And, the key to their success has been the Internet Anonymity – Armed with a limitless supply of Fake IDs, they swing the public opinion in their favor.
Without the ‘accepted’ doctrine of Internet Anonymity, the swarm attack tactic will not succeed.
Governments in the West are on top of it, too. From the US defense department and CIA to NATO and governmental agencies of other nations, almost all the alphabet agencies in the world rely on the Internet Anonymity and Fake IDs in their effort to sway the public opinion in the ‘right’ direction.
The Agencies in the US, not relying solely on the humans to the job, employ sophisticated softwares application to swarm the social network sites and other media to influence the public opinion – All thanks to the Internet Anonymity and False IDs.
US Spy Operations: Manipulating Social Media – Inciting Unrest:
The US military has been deploying software that secretly manipulates social media sites by using Fake online personas to influence Internet conversations and spread pro-American propaganda.
Back in 2010, a Californian corporation was awarded a contract with United States Central Command (Centcom), which oversees US armed operations in the Middle East and Central Asia, to develop what was described as an “online persona management service” that would allow the US serviceman to control multiple separate identities based all over the world.
US agencies insist that the ‘Regular’ people organizing themselves through social media have been propelling the waves of anti-government protests all over the world; from North Africa and the Mideast to Ukraine and Hong Kong.
But, given the anonymity of the Internet, use of fake ids, and the growing sophistication of tools designed to exploit these ‘opportunities’, what if the activists behind the upheaval haven’t been who they said they were? Or, more alarmingly, what if they weren’t people at all?
What if it were the programs like the sock-puppet that have been causing the upheavals and turmoils all over the world – and, influencing the public opinion at home?
Almost all the US alphabet agencies are into it. The U.S. Air Force is also known to have purchased software to generate fake online identities, complete with a credible backstory, email addresses, and even IP addresses that can situate the persona geographically or make them appear to have been online for some time.
Establishment Support for The Internet Anonymity
Internet Anonymity, thus, serves the interests of the establishment, and of those who rule this world. Without the Internet Anonymity, Fake IDs are of no use. And, without the fake ids, they lose the most powerful tool to control the public opinion at home.
Without the Internet Anonymity and Fake IDs, they will lose the power to manipulate and incite the masses in other countries and to agitate them enough to rise against their governments – Like they were able to do in the Middle East, Russia, Iran, Ukraine, Hong Kong, and in many other places in the world.
A few years ago, there was a blitz of talks and discussions in the media about the merits of having the laws to institute a real-name system policy – One-Person, One-Account – No Fake IDs. Then, most probably, it was brought to the attention of the ‘movers’ that such a move wouldn’t serve the interest of the ruling circles. And, the ‘debate’ was turned on its head – The Internet Anonymity was Good for the public and for the Internet!
China’s Real Name Policy
Both Russia and China are infested with the western NGOs, which are, in fact, the tentacles of the likes of George Soros. The role of these agencies is to subvert the sovereignty and integrity of the host country. And, to succeed in their objectives, they rely upon the Internet Anonymity and Fake IDs.
China is vulnerable to the sneak attacks of the Fake IDs’, and has decided to cut the roots of this threat. They are implementing, effective March 01, 2015, a one-person, one-account policy. China has announced sweeping new regulations requiring users of an array of Internet services to register with their real names.
The requirements apply to users of blogs, microblogs, instant-messaging services, online discussion forums, news comment sections and related services, said the Cyberspace Administration of China, the country’s Internet regulator, in a statement posted on its website.
“Username chaos” had become a serious problem on the Chinese Internet, the state-run China News Service said in a report on the new regulations, citing an unidentified representative of the regulator. Fake accounts, it said, had “polluted the Internet ecology, harmed the interests of the masses, and seriously violated core socialist values.”
China, by implementing the “Real Name” policy, will be able to thwart the most dangerous sneak attack by the West. China certainly doesn’t want Shanghai to fall in step with Hong Kong.
