Nothing can be done. These social medias need to take action here. They need to develop an AI sophisticated enough to know and figure out which posts are being pushed by AI. But the chances of them doing this is highly unlikely cause it’ll cost money, the AI targets people by advertisement(shares,etc) which they use facebook/google ad service for. Right now social medias don’t have that much incentive to take any actions.
The government can force them to take action by banning social media and any means of accessing them 3–6 months before election (yes, hard messurements have to be taken). But as we’re talking about Trump it won’t happen.
So, we can’t do anything except watch and Trump and Bannon takes over US.
But the fact is Russia is actually taking over. There was a book written by: Aleksandr Dugin named: The Foundations of Geopolitics: The Geopolitical Future of Russia
In this book there’s quote:
- In the United States, Russia should use its special services within the borders of the United States to fuel instability and separatism, for instance, provoke “Afro-American racists”. Russia should “introduce geopolitical disorder into internal American activity, encouraging all kinds of separatism and ethnic, social and racial conflicts, actively supporting all dissident movements — extremist, racist, and sectarian groups, thus destabilizing internal political processes in the U.S. It would also make sense simultaneously to support isolationist tendencies in American politics.”
- The United Kingdom should be cut off from Europe.
(The fact that Analytica intervened in the Brexit proves just that.)
I think that Trump and Bannon are just pawns in the big game. Putin is sophisticated enough to pull this all off, Trump and Bannon are just small kids compared to him. Bannon can be manipulated by promise of hard right agendas and Trump can be manipulated by promise of power.
