The Change of the Political Paradigm
Digital technology has become what philosophers call a "formal cause".
The Cambridge Analytica scandal that engulfed Facebook is only the tip of the digital iceberg towards which governments, societies and geopolitics generally are headed. Digital technology is permeating every part of how we are governed - and effecting who we choose to do the governing. At the same time, perhaps less visibly, it is effecting authoritarian societies.
