Everyone is getting into the act of trying to influence next week’s elections. Iran and Russia have used cyber means to interfere. Their activities, however, pale by comparison with the multifaceted and aggressive efforts of Communist China.
Democratic partisans are using a variety of techniques to alter outcomes. So are mainstream media whose preferences for Democratic policies and candidates over those of the Republican Party are unmistakable.
The same has been increasingly evident in the social media, as well. A new documentary called “The Social Dilemma,” presents influential industry figures describing sophisticated algorithms used to addict and subliminally manipulate its users.
Clearly, such techniques can advance the tech giants’ leftist agenda. And it seems certain they will be employed for that purpose, probably dwarfing the impact of all the other would-be influencers. They may finish off free and fair elections for good.
