    I agree with Nats negative reaction to the online voting auditability, there is also the issue of authentication of people and coercion, but now we need to be looking further back too, at the way populations are being manipulated by the Palantirs, Cambridge Analyticas, and Iota Globals of the world.

    and I also note one of Israel's wealthiest families,
    the Steinmetzes are (or were ) Kushner partners as well -
    and they are suing George Soros (according to The Seattle Times )
    a messy interconnecting network - all very Gaia-like - a delicate 'egosystem' one might say...

    Facebook has stepped up attempts to build its influence as a political tool by giving jobs to former senior Conservative and Labour campaign officials.
