Phi Beta Iota: It has finally come to pass. Cyber-security–like the Black Plague before it–and of course the ten high-level threats to humanity so ably identified by the High Level Panel on Threats, Challenges, and Change–is a modern demonstration of three irrefutable facts of life:
1. The US does not know what it needs to know and is incapable of fielding a cyber-security cadre.
2. Multinational Engagement is the ONLY possible, reasonable, affordable solution for what ails the Whole Earth.
3. The 21st Century is the Century of unfathomable complexity, when our blissful ignorance of that complexity is just sufficiently lifted so that we realize that we are NOT an adaptive complex society; that our Industrial Era top down command and control based on secrets and unilateral uninformed and often corrupt decision-making is pathologically inept, and that new means, ways, and ends must be found.
Multinational Engagement is NOT about false promises, lip service, tokenism, or blustering treaties and theatrical agreements. It is about deep open collaboration in eradicating every threat by harmonizing planning, programming, budgeting, and behavior (PPBB) across all twelve policies, so as to enable the eight demographic powers to create a prosperous world at peace despite over 400 years of Western imperialism and coddling of “friendly” dictators.
On background (DVD), as we write this, Gandhi has just been sentenced to jail for non-cooperation with the British government occupying India and now non-violent multi-faith–Hindu and Muslim– citizens of India are marching five by five in an endless number, exhausting the paucity of stick-wielding Vichy Indians.

Life as we have known it is OVER. It’s long past due time we got serious about Multinational Engagement across every discipline and every domain–the Swedes and Earth Intelligence Network call this M4IS2: Multinational, Multiagency, Multidisciplinary, Multidomain Information-Sharing and Sense-Making.
