Why cyber warfare isn’t
Mike Hearn

It’s worse than that, actually. The NSA and so forth, and their counterparts in other countries, don’t just, or even primarily, spy on foreign countries. They spy on their own citizens and their own governments. As a result, the last thing they want is to enable the people they’re supposedly protecting to protect themselves. To the contrary, they seem to conspire with the providers of our computing infrastructure to make it weaker, so that they can hack us. Inevitably, the other hackers, whether from other governments or private, gain access to the back doors and so forth that our own spies arrange for their benefit. In effect, the interests of the spy agencies run directly counter to our own.
