Well, to be fair, people in Germany, for example, who have seen the German Edition of Shadow Gate may not know that private
contractors exits and what their role is. At least it is now known that they exist.


The other question which might come up, what is all this IIA and PsyOps stuff, people are talking about.


Maybe people have also heard of the term Cyber Warfare and wonder if it really exists and what does it do.
Knowing that the below mentioned brigade has a software running called Shadownet.


So all in all, whether people think Shadow Gate is a hoax etc. at least it is quite interesting to watch,
because it is well made and should people animate to think more what the future will bring with this hole
commercial Internet crap of today. Thanks to Bill Clinton and Al Gore for 'inventing' the Internet. 

Before that 'invention' the Internet was a nice place.

People who try to sign-up anonymously with Tor Browser, will face the problem that all (random) user ids are already 'taken',
thus making it impossible to sign up via Tor. Maybe you or others had luck in the past.
