That’s surely great news for core technologists unenamoured and/or disengaged by the West too. Another virgin opportunity with an enthusiastic partner fully appreciative of the novel help in postmodern systems of greater social engineering.
Any simple lead in any one of those core technology fields has one creating the possibility of being overwhelmingly influential and inordinately powerful. That’s bound to be extremely attractive to some, who may also be many, and much more than just a chosen few.
Methinks that has one skirting around quantum communications fields given the nature of the Qubit and the then fact rather than fiction that a this can be a that and together something else too superpositioning which be fundamentally different and classically imposing …… and quite naturally most probably also capable of being an almighty disruptive and creatively destructive development in a brave new world field. And that makes such an internetworking thing, immeasurably valuable and cheap at whatever cost imagined and price gladly paid.
But quite normal for these strange times and spaces in which we are all living nowadays with Odays and RATs practically and virtually everywhere one cares to turn. ‘Tis just the simple nature of the complex beast.

Whereas that observation of yours can be easily accepted, AC, what you have to look out for, and be prepared for, for it will be surprisingly shocking, is it making much more than just a lot of sense to a vital few who be much more than merely capable of enabling and sustaining the types of leading programs and super impositions expounded.
And I can’t say that any plainer, and it certainly makes sense even if one doesn’t actually know exactly what it might be referring to.
And there are of course, some things one is best not knowing anything about because they be feared and/or considered extremely dangerous and subversive/coersive and immersive and disruptive, and thus they need to be, for all the good reasons beloved of protectors and security, more than just a tad obscure and unusual/irregular and unconventional.

Hardly democratic … but not unusual in dodgy business circles.
despite the spy programs he exposed later being ruled unconstitutional, no one within the NSA or related intelligence services was ever suspended – even after the US Director of National Intelligence James Clapper lied in Congress about US domestic surveillance.
Clapper faced no penalty, retired on a full pension, and began a new career on the conference and TV chat show circuit.
Some would venture that is atypical and typical of a rogue state and rogue agencies.
