“Missouri v. Biden was filed on May 5, 2022. Since it was initially filed, it has taken quite a trip through the court system…”
“The most widespread and troubling discovery? CISA has designated YOUR THOUGHTS part of the government’s infrastructure. They call it “cognitive infrastructure.”
“They argue they can regulate what you think as they consider it under their purview.”
The hyperlink above expands further on this concept and how they euphemistically try to make it sound like they’re not doing exactly what they’re doing.
“…the pair writes about the “assault on trust in the digital age, indeed an assault on what’s arguably our most critical asset: our cognitive infrastructure.” They refer to this assault on trust as a “disease.” Referencing a column on Just Security by Jonathon Morgan and Renee DiResta—who is one of the top disinformation collaborators for EIP—Easterly and Geltzer write about America’s cognitive infrastructure and their quest to “shield it from assault” and to “protect the ‘human-operating system.’”
“America’s cognitive infrastructure, they say is “foundational to our country’s economic and political health.”
“Here they also advocate for partnerships between social media companies and independent fact-checkers like Snopes.com to avoid “viral falsehoods.” They conclude that “good national security policy” is only as good as “the set of facts” that define the issues we debate. “The human impulse,” they write, is to “regard seeing as believing.” I quote:
“It’s no secret that good national security policy rests on good decision-making. But good decision-making rests on good information and basic trust that, when we debate tough issues, there’s at least a set of facts in the world defining those issues. Before we can improve America’s national security decision-making, we need to improve a piece of our critical infrastructure long taken for granted: our cognitive infrastructure.”
“Top-down control of “the facts” seems to be a guiding principle for Easterly. She and her team define who the “trusted experts” are.”
This is just another way of stating that they lament and wish to return to the days when America’s news was so tightly controlled (without appearing to be) that it was unquestionable. When everyone respected and trusted the big anchormen and the opinions were better cloaked, or when obvious, were unchallenged.
