Persistent plots by the detractors of democracy is inevitable because as democracy is waxing stronger, the few unscrupulous minds will also find a way to derail it in order to achieve their selfish political aim.
On this note i think it is imperative to enact a very strict policy to deprive the perpetrators of this act the Oxygen to breath in our society.

Human knowledge is experiencing exponential growth. Truly, this growth ushers in the good, the bad and the ugly. In addition, as the good guys are busy developing intellectual things to improve our qualities of lives; the bad are thinking and plotting to make our lives miserable. Unfortunately, the hackers are anti good quality of life.
Sadly, they are the inventor of “NETWAR” in our generation and generations yet unborn. Our banking, healthcare, travelling, social bogging and social media, intelligence, communication, military, security systems and so forth are all vulnerable to hacking. Moreover, our electoral and democratic processes are threatened by this cyber/Netwar. The 2016 presidential election in America and the recent hacking of France’s presidential election (CNN and MSNBC, 2017) are fresh in our memories. So far, the criminal networks are winning the battle. If action is not taking quickly, the terrorist network will exploit it; there and then we will have a pandemic conundrum.
This issue is humanly invented and the remedy will also come from Homo Sapiens bipedalist. Consequently, this problem should be treated with urgency and full focus. Because, this a global security threat and a threat to democracy and anti development against numerous facets of societies across the globe. Should there be death penalty for hackers of global effect and proportion? Your thoughts? Welcome to http://www.provocativedebate.com.
