Abstract

Total warfare in the 1940s mobilized whole societies but total warfare in our times will be waged within societies. Digital technologies flowing through the informational domains, including social media platforms and blockchain networks, have created new channels of influence. The transmission of disinformation through these increasingly powerful and inclusive domains creates uncertainty that
erodes societal trust and threatens democratic control. Technological change grows exponentially more powerful but in a non-linear pattern that is characteristically uncertain and cannot be foreseen or predicted.
