The facts of the matter are these..
1 - Russia hacks accusations were a distraction from what should have been the issue - the corruption within the DNC. From a cybersecurity standpoint the biggest threats are the US, Israel, China.. in that order. Russia's state capabilities are pretty terrible..
2 - The US holds the keys to the internet with their control of the DNS root structure. This makes EVERY country subject to their policies,and the last half century shows that the US is an absolutely terrible international actor.
What we have is a new red menace narrative - a narrative of bullshit that both justifies the increased surveillance being put into place to stop whistle-blowers, journalists, activists and people of conscience... and the obscene profits being made by the cybersecurity industrial complex.
Unfortunately people don't learn from history, or from technical people, but from the Media, which is by and large full of reporting by people who know barely anything, owned by people with a vested interest in perpetuating industry friendly narratives to line their own pockets.
Look into New Knowledge if you want to find the tip of the shitberg that is the utter nonsense we're being fed.
