A Great Simian or just another Monkey?

Welcome! This is my little internet home I write as a way to structure my thoughts and get rid of things that are stuck in my head and worth plotting down. Maybe someone finds value in them. Even thought I might write about business, this is my personal place.

It is a long-play utilized by governments to influence and destabilize countries. Today boosted by speed and reach, all enabled by social media.
