The 1946 battle of Athens, Tennessee…How veterans broke up a criminal government

In 1946 the political corruption in McGinn County Tennessee was staggering.  A sheriff, a state senator and their followers had stormed the local post office, taking the locked voters ballot boxes as residents attempted to hold an election free from fraud.  What happened next is history.  Local veterans banded together and laid seige to the county jail where the sheriff and senator and various deputies had taken the ballot boxes to prevent any outcome that did not put them back in office.  In the gun battle that followed, the veterans were victorious.  It may be instances like this that cause Homeland Security to fear our returning veterans, labeling them [possible domestic terrorists]. Paranoia will do that to you.  Imagine fighting in those wars of aggression and then coming home and being treated suspiciously by the same government that sent you to war.

This is a 13 minute trailer on the “made for TV” movie, but it is inspiring in its content.  It just might help some of us understand why the 2nd Amendment is so vital to our survival.  It was the veterans who fought back against the corruption in Tennessee in 1946.

Hacking might not be something you think of very often in terms of major conflicts. The Internet has been around for a relatively small portion of history, but today it represents a serious battleground for many different kinds of conflict, from the petty to the monumental.

This infographic takes a look at how hacking has become a weapon in many kinds of conflict. From governments gathering information on people they perceive as in opposition all the way to types of political speech, hacking and “hacktivism,” are on the rise.

I found it especially interesting that most hackers are located in the United States—66% of them, in fact. It’s becoming such a common thing that I feel like everyone should be aware of it—and aware that it’s a weapon wielded by governments and parties on all sides of conflict. Hacking has evolved far beyond online thieves and fraud: these days it’s a much more complex and versatile thing.
