Barely. I remember seeing the guy's face change overnight, was like "oh, ex-Soviet shit", and was glad my mom's trip to Ukraine in 2000-ish was in a period of relative stability. Wasn't much into geopolitik back 15 years ago.
What scares me is that there will be (or arguably, is) an internet version of these incredibly improper campaign tactics, especially foreign election interference, for 2020 POTUS elections. We're fucked, and the GOP in at least two of three branches seem intent on preventing at least some election security measures, and actively shits on the factually-established results of the massive IC probes into the 2016 debacle.
How do you feel about a decentralized blockchain voting ledger system, but developed at the federal level, with massive funding/staffing? Maybe it doesn't have to run all year, just a month, over the course of which is the voting window. Any federal effort will need to be essentially shoved down the states' throats, with some assurances, like oversight. Leaving the states to their wide array of voting systems enables both obfuscation and human error. There has to be some way to do this well (better than the current situation) before quantum cryptography provides the ultimate security, which is probably at least 30 years away from being implemented in any large infrastructure.
We obviously need more campaign finance laws, if two ex-felons (Parnas, Fruman) are allowed to pour literally hundreds of millions in slush funds without demonstrating that they own any profitable businesses. This isn't really up for debate. We also need to keep foreign money out of social media advertising, and we should at least begin discussing what to do about domestic social media propaganda. edit: I guess there are some "conversations" at a national level, they're just almost always really, really stupid
While I'm interrogating you, do you think a 2020 Trump win would be the end of America/democracy, or just the GOP?
