The world order is now in chaos and nothing seems to work for peace. World organizations are powerless as a result of poor leadership and lack of confidence. It's hard to agree and trust on world leadership when everyone works just under their own advantage and priorities. The cold war with its missiles has emerged as a common source of fear with nuclear clouds symbolizing mass destruction telling about inability to negotiate and settle disputes.
Civilized way of action has been forgotten or undermined in a frightening way by the world leaders playing their own arrogant game. The socialist iron grip on command economy and vague capitalism, representing so-called free world, seem to continue their fight for superiority with commercial sanctions, protectionism and discrimination. Arrogant Putin is supported by the people, Trump makes himself laughable in front of the people.
Europe is powerless, Asia unstable and the African nations without strong leadership. Hot points are in Syria and the whole near-East. North-Korea and the US are starting their unbalanced peace discussions leaving world organizations as outsiders. Nothing happens in a conventional way making improvised discussions dangerous and complicate the world situation. There is a need for a serious movement against stupidity and indifference.

Cyberwarfare involves the battlespace use and targeting of computers and networks in warfare. It involves both offensive and defensive operations pertaining to the threat of cyberattacks, espionage and sabotage. There has been controversy over whether such operations can be called "war". Nevertheless, nations have been developing their capabilities and engaged in cyberwarfare either as an aggressor, defendant, or both. The United States, China, Russia, Israel and the United Kingdom are believed to have the most developed cyber warfare capabilities. Two other notable players are Iran and North Korea.
A cyber-warrior is a person or organization engaged in cyberwarfare, whether for personal, political, patriotic or religious reasons. Cyberwarfare may be pursued either to defend computer and information systems, or to attack them. Cyber-warriors come in different forms, depending on their roles, but all deal with information security in one form or another. (LOF)

Some former Facebook management representatives have said that "Facebook is ripping the social fabric of how society works and that it is destroying the reality having no societal discourse, no cooperation by fostering misinformation and mistruth. This is a global problem. It is eroding the core foundations of how people behave by and between each other." (LOF) - In Finnish down here:
