Be in no doubt, teknopaul, there is one thing some are absolutely sure of …..
Big Tech Micro Kernel Cell[s] are virtually light years ahead in the Practical Application/Remote Anonymous and Autonomous Presentation of Augmented Virtual Reality Programs/Addictively Attractive Future Projects, which you might like to consider and realise are delivered fully phormed with assets and services from the future rather than invented and constructed with traditional and conventional tools and materials from the past and present.
And the prodigious stealth that either the widespread disbelief or zero common knowledge of such a matter provides, guarantees its relentless unhindered march into all hacked and cracked wide open SCADA Administration Systems in order to do its quantum communications leaping progress thing.
Is what is needed for humans, an almighty demonstration which destroy a previously thought indispensable and vital facility and/or utility …. replacing it with something altogether quite different and significant better/much more equitable and helpful …… seeing as how extant systems leaderships are so averse and negatively reactive to terrifying changes ….. which are always leaps into a commonly unknown greater future.
But more of the same gets one nowhere and only invites and delivers petrication and stagnation …. Terminal Rot.

And then Uncle Sam and NATO allies wonder why they have so many alarming enemies ….. whenever they choose to create them via their exclusive actions.
Whenever one has to oppose and try to disadvantage more able competition, is it an intelligence deficit within one’s own systems that one has to address rather than assaulting others via arbitrary politically motivated denial of markets which rely on such options to share and enrich investors.
The bottom line in that message is surely such a market is self-destructive and not fit for future greater purpose as competition in opposition increases militant costs.
What appears to have been forgotten ….. yet again Is ………
Akin to, and largely responsible for the sweeping changes in our industrial-military posture, has been the technological revolution during recent decades.
In this revolution, research has become central; it also becomes more formalized, complex, and costly. A steadily increasing share is conducted for, by, or at the direction of, the Federal government.
Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been over shadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers.
The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.
Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.
It is the task of statesmanship to mold, to balance, and to integrate these and other forces, new and old, within the principles of our democratic system-ever aiming toward the supreme goals of our free society. …….President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s Farewell Address (1961)

I suppose, LDS, you wouldn’t recognise the US as a collection/federation of disparate state dictatorships servering and serving the printed fiat dollar machine …….and which now has its sights on command and control with an electronic currency mechanism even easier to program for the deliverance of wishes? …… https://www.theregister.com/2022/03/28/us_digital_dollar/
One thing you can be sure of though, is if it is thought possible, will the temptation prove too great to not be attempted with virtual assets floated onto market places and digital spaces.
And that opens up a whole new vast can of worms and trojans/devils and daemons to try vanquish and pacify if one is running it as a rigged crooked casino.
However, time will tell the true enough tale soon enough, methinks ….. Que Sera, Sera.
