What is going on? Are there new kids in the chain on the block creating CHAOS***?
And let us not discount and ignore a fifth possibility in the future: one of those strange cyber-mercenary groupages – or Private Sector Offensive Actors (PSOAs) with Killer AAA+ 00 Licences to Thrill that national defences don’t want you knowing anything about. …… https://forums.theregister.com/forum/all/2021/01/08/uk_ai_council_roadmap/#c_4182947 …… and something it is definitely wisest to make positive engagement with whenever renegade rogue, freelancer private and pirate contractors/plausibly deniable proxy agents/non-state state actors, given what you might know or what you might think you know, and what you certainly don’t know they can easily do to/for you, if you are able and can be bovvered and are terrorised and have state sponsoring ‽ .
And that is something which both the Donald [Rumsfeld]* and Ike [President Eisenhower]** did reveal and warn y’all about long before now, but not unsurprisingly, given the present dire crumbling state of general kowledge and specific intelligence, y’all appear to not have heeded the message for the messages are clearly enough written to not be easily misunderstood nor dismissed as errant crazy nonsense ……
**In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. 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. *Reports that say that something hasn’t happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don’t know we don’t know. And if one looks throughout the history of our country and other free countries, it is the latter category that tends to be the difficult ones.
…… and thus, in the event of continued wilful misdirections, is one likely to suffer suddenly without a priori warning, the consequences and reap the whirlwinds of despair which accompany all arrogant misguided hubristic feasts as just desserts that slay the beast with the simple removal of its glorious gluttonous feeds/fiat needs.

That’s exclusive breaking news there, El Reg. And intelligently designed to create more than just a stir to shake up and wake up the living dead in the bubbles which lock them down.

Quite why anyone would so brazenly and wilfully force themselves to the top of the list for the attention of a revolutionary mob and Madame Guillotine is puzzling. Can you explain yourself, please?
Are you ill [terminally]? Deranged [mentally]? Fooled [totally]? Threatened [financially]?
Some folk can’t see the wood for the trees whenever their cushy jobs depend upon them being deaf, dumb and blind to new worlds of enterprising opportunity.

Money laundering is what banks do all the time and most banks already endorsed bitcoin because they controll it. …… AAA
Well, they might like to think they are controlling it, as Bitcoin successfully remotely forces them into an alien market space.
