Farewell to Arms, from Wired 1997. As William Church says, "The most damaging form of I-war is political war or psychological war." And pretty much anything can be part of it: power outages, network breakdowns, clever disinformation campaigns - anything "to get the populace to feel that the country is going to hell." http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/5.05/netizen_pr.html

Disconnect the dots (Joel Garreau, Wash Post, Sept17). Divide and conquer; identify parts of the network that can be pacified and play them against former allies. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A41015-2001Sep16.html
