Potent Weapon

Published: March 24, 2009, Author: JayTaber

Netwar

Modern netwar is a useful field of study for those engaged in the war of ideas, indigenous versus industrial being a prime example. During a trustee v faculty conflict at my alma mater in 2007, I compiled some helpful articles on the topic. Students enrolled in the Activism and Social Change program as well as the media studies department said they found them especially applicable to the situation. As we prepare for the battle over perceptions of the climate change challenge, an understanding of the tools of perception management and media influence is perhaps our most potent weapon.
