Joining us for the latest edition of Kaos Theory is Retired Brigadier General Robert Spalding, who discusses with us the need for the US to understand and counter China’s information warfare tactics. General Spalding emphasizes the importance of the information aspect of national power and how China is winning the battle on this front, highlights the need for the US to use tools and strategies that lead to less military force and more thinking in achieving desired outcomes, and also discusses the vulnerabilities of the US’s highly centralized infrastructure and the need for a more resilient and secure network architecture.
General Spalding shares his efforts to educate America through his book and his company, Semper Ai, which aims to create a decentralized infrastructure to protect communities and ensure continuity of operations. Also under the microscope is the importance of critical thinking, dissent, and protecting individual rights.
This episode is what we Brits would call a ‘real rip-snorter.’ Enjoy!
