Information Warfare, Globalism, and the Curious Case of Music

Abstract

The concept of globalism can be traced back thousands of years, most remarkably, to ancient Babylonia. Information warfare has enabled this enchanting concept to survive into the present Age.

The combined application of perception management and music is a powerful case in point. This enigmatic information warfare technique was used to influence Babylonian minds – and is being used for similar purposes today.

Whether employed to advance hostility or peace, such techniques subtly redefine ages-old concepts of individual privacy and security. Any serious efforts against their abuse must entail proactive and reactive global information security initiatives.
