      Here be at least one platform the EU need to be showing lead in in order to have any chance at all of governing anything and/or everything securely and remotely ....... http://amanfrommars.blogspot.nl/2018/02/180203.html

      It is presently, if not deadly opposition, then certainly virulent competition, and we all know how quickly that can be reversed if one plays dumb and stupid ...... or simply buries one's head in the sand and hopes that such things will just go away. Nowadays, and in such fields as exercise greater virtual governance, is that no longer a luxury provided.

      It is fair to say though, that any state or non-state actor with the right sort of intelligence can be easily enabled with the exercise of secure and remote virtual governance. And that is along with AI Command and Control, a Great Game Changer in Deed indeed.

      Y'all do know of Great Games ... yes? ...... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Great_Game

        Further to the See C Above ........ C42 Quantum Communication Control Systems …. AI@ITsWork

        Care for a Swim in a Storm for that Swarm?:-) ....... to Technically Knock Out Rivals and Rascals Reading of Rogue and Renegade Platforms and Programs with AIMentoring and Monitoring of NEUKlearer HyperRadioProACTive IT Systems of Virtually Exclusive Remote Executive Administration ......... for a Near as Enough to Perfect as Makes No Difference Control of Future Beta Programmed Events to Follow as AI and IT Lead with Virtual Machines for an Alien Being in ....... you know, SMARTR Humanity v2.0 in Live Operational Virtual Environments?

        Such is readily available to and for All to Experience and Champion ..... and to Levels Deep and Far into XSSXXXX for a Deservedly Worthy Few. Not for the Faint Hearted :-)

    Not quite (headline)

    It has some momentum, and even a little money behind it - and consequences. I'm just surprised this was not happening already (OK it was - just not with overpaid individuals :-) - surprised Farage has not got his nose in the trough yet.
