We have now, formally, entered, the ERA of authoritarianism, where our government takes complete control over what we’re doing from day to day, keeping tabs on what we’re saying, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
Before the 1450 Net Armies clouds not yet dissipated, the Digital Development Department already hung up its name, got set up, causing the legislators not from the DDP questioning. Especially during these past few years, a lot of people (mostly the politicians), all had the personal experiences, of getting cyberbullied by 1450. And so, what we’re most afraid of is this, if the net armies connected with the Digital Department, then, together, they may reign us under their, terrors even more.
On 1450, the British scholar, Preston back in 2015, called it “transmedia terrorism”. Transmedia is defined as the interactions between the traditional media and social media, due to how the traditional media are mostly, conservative, with the social media posting the unchecked facts, or the spur-of-the-moment news, causing the ripple effect of the spread of news. The key here is, as the social media started discussing certain topics, making it heated up, sometimes, the traditional media are forced to follow the leads, which becomes the multiple of the effects of fermentation, causing the cross-media terrorism.
Although the head of digital department stated, that there’s no need to fear the “army of electronics connection” taking over, but, it’s still questionable to the people.
And the three reason that caused people doubts are: first, the core mission of the agency isn’t clearly stated: the role of the head of the digital department is in the “training”. This means, there’s NO set purpose of the setting up of this department, this worries more, because the department can get out of control, turning at any moment it wanted to. Secondly, if the aim is in “coaching”, then, this is the same as it becoming a party-operated agency, so, the department isn’t, independently operating; that it should suffice, that the Executive Department had set up an “office of digital technologies”, no need for it to become an independent “Department”. Thirdly, this department is used as a tool, not a means to an end, and, by this, if the tools are abused in use, then, they would easily become the manipulation of mass media, becoming the transmedia terrorism.
Secondly, there’s no clear cut means of hiring the workers in this department: currently, there were the fifty-percent of workers who are hired by contract. They have great flexibility, and can operate on the ambiguous rules. Because they’re not formal government employees, the rules of guidance on the morale of government workers don’t apply to them.
Third, the net armies aren’t clearly defined: although the district attorney’s offices had looked into the net armies, but because there’s no heavy criminal punishments, and there’s only one scapegoat for the cases, the case ended as blurred. The “net army” worked flexibly, with no set location of office of work, means of work. And, under this, there would be rooms of the digital department, working together with the net armies.
And, it’s clear to see, that even IF the digital department does not involve itself in cross-media terrorism, it can easily be the backhand of these acts, combining the government, and the cross-media terrorism workings. For instance, the riots on Capitol Hill of the U.S. that’s pending investigation right now, Trump was suspected of using social media to incite the riots by the Congress, but currently, there’s no related evidence that’s been collected that’s pointed toward that. And so, we have reasons to believe, that the digital department may easily become out of control in the futures—becoming the leading forces of cross-media terrorism, the government as well as the people need to think on this very thoroughly.
And so, in the name of “good for you” we are, using these means, to spy on the people, to keep tabs on them, to make sure that they don’t say or do anything that might damage our party, and, we really need an alternative department (like in the checks and balances systems???), to make sure, that this government led by the DDP, doesn’t take over ruling our lives, but, we can’t, as everything’s been taken by the DDP, it’d already, dipped its filthy little hands, in health department, education, technologies, etc., etc., etc., and we the people are now, enslaved here, and, there’s NOTHING that we can do about it.
A people ENSLAVED is what we’d, become here.
