the people following you are real

Tony Judt:

The question is not going to be, Will there be an activist state? The question is going to be, What kind of an activist state?

Gabe Madway:

We want it to be perceived that the people following you are real.

Ted Cruz:

If you can frame the narrative, you win.


International Law and Cyber Attacks: Sony v. North Korea | Just Security

This is the most informed view you'll find anywhere regarding the legality of a "proportional response" by the United States to the SONY breach.

The commission of an internationally wrongful act entitles an injured State to engage in “countermeasures” under the law of State responsibility, as captured in Article 22 and 49-54 of the Articles on State Responsibility. Countermeasures are actions by an injured State that breach obligations owed to the “responsible” State (the one initially violating its legal obligations) in order to persuade the latter to return to a state of lawfulness. Thus, if the cyber operation against Sony is attributable to North Korea and breached U.S. sovereignty, the United States could have responded with countermeasures, such as a “hack back” against North Korean cyber assets. Indeed, it may still enjoy the right to conduct countermeasures, either because it is reasonable to conclude that the operation is but the first blow in a campaign consisting of multiple cyber operations or based on certain technical rules relating to reparations. It must be cautioned that the right to take countermeasures is subject to strict limitations dealing with such matters as notice, proportionality, and timing. Moreover, they are only available against States and the prevailing view is that a countermeasure may not rise to the level of a use of force.

the kind of stuff that goes on

Ted Cruz:

If you can frame the narrative, you win.

Decius:

We know that this kind of stuff goes on, but in this case these people more or less spell out what they are doing in black and white. Everyone should read this memo.

Eric Fair:

Most Americans haven't read the report. Most never will.

Alexander Tyler, in 1787:

The average age of the world's greatest civilization has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through this sequence. From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance, from abundance to complacency; from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back into bondage.
