Did you hear Russia will temporarily disconnect from the internet?

The U.S. military developed the internet. We should disconnect and built the best firewall to stop hacking from China, Russia and all evil nations.

In the case of Russia, I see this as the government depriving Russian citizens access to information that conflicts with it's propaganda. The Russian government, Putin, doesn't want Russian citizens to know the truth. It's pretty much "How to be a Dictator 101."
Putin misses the good old glory days of the Soviet Union and wants to bring them back. Including the Cold War, the Iron Curtain, and an arms race.
He thinks Russia can come out on top this time around.
When you view his actions, at home and abroad, from that perspective, all that he's been doing makes sense.

Regarding foreign hacking, I think the answer is in security. Not isolation. Allowing the government to dictate what we can and can't have access to is very dangerous and how dictatorships are born. And for that matter, violent revolutions.
Convincing citizens that in order to have security the State has to control everything, is also straight out of The Dictator's Handbook.

We definitely need better security. Quantum computers may provide that.

Cortez, Pelsoi want control of everything. From insurance to our finances. A firewall would stop China, Russia from hacking our governement and privates businesses if it worked properly.
