Russia is hacking the life out of the US and the US is letting them get away with it or so it seems. Russian authorities have of course denied any involvement but I don’t think anyone is buying that.
What’s even more unsettling is that everything and everyone is being targeted, from athletes’ medical records to presidential candidates’ emails and financial records. Even the upcoming US Elections are allegedly under threat! Whoever is behind these hacks is not playing. I think the US needs to hack back, and soon, or else all of America’s secrets will be exposed.
Honestly, I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing. A part of me wants to know what’s really going on. Don’t we all like to read about other people’s scandals? I would also like to know what these developed nations’ agenda for Africa really is but at the same time, I think there needs to be some degree of discretion and privacy.
It’s kind of like knowing all of your parents’ plans for your future. It’s good to know about certain things but not everything. Same goes for relationships. You want to get to know your partner well but you don’t want to know every little detail about their lives, past or present, right?
Russia’s antics are surely making many nervous, especially those who have a couple of things to hide and we’re all entitled to our opinions but I think it’s damaging. Russia’s coming off as immature and petulant. See how they staged their own Paralympics after Russian athletes were banned from participating in the Rio events over doping allegations and they’re now setting out on this vengeful quest to destroy the “enemy”. Kind of like when someone wrongs or angers you and you attempt to get them back.
If you’ve ever gotten into a verbal or even physical fight with anyone, including friends or siblings, it’s usually because they said something hurtful or took something from you and you can’t let them get away with it so you fight back. I can’t really say I’ve gotten someone back to the point where they realized what I was up to.
What happens with me is that I tend to keep grudges, something I’m not proud of but I guess it’s my coping mechanism. And so I will hatch these little plots in my mind about how to get someone back but I never act on them. I remember a couple of years ago when I really wanted to get an ex back.
I learnt about a Café he and a couple of friends had set up and I so badly wanted to open up one right next to it and if I had the money at the time, I’m sure I would have! My “plan” was to work so hard and do whatever it took to run them out of business. Childish I know and the funny thing is that I think I would have felt guilty if that had actually happened. So have any of you ever sought revenge?
