BTW, there is no new ‘collective intelligence’ forming around some mythical insurgency. It is the same old civil war we have never stopped fighting, and the sides are the some old tribal identities that have never disappeared.
Yes and no. Same old Civil War yes, but not the same media…and the media is critical, information and narrative is critical and there is now all sorts of struggles around the control of all these narratives.
It has changed things a bit..I think it is impossible to say how exactly.
