… as much as I would also enjoy devoting my silver years to long, “John Wick”-ian episodes of bloodthirsty revenge, there are crueler and yet more productive things we can do.
Take your passion and invest it in undermining the values of your enemies.
Were they racists? Go tutor immigrants in English.
Did they mock your faith? Volunteer at Sunday school.
Were they prigs? Go out and overtip exotic dancers.
Find the one thing that would make them cry into their pillows and do it with glee.

Russia (and others) meddling in US politics via propaganda, and winning, is being discussed. It’s a start.
Associations, via hacking, phishing, social engineering, and investment, were (probably) targeted as early as …. well, first the report:
New report on Russian disinformation, prepared for the Senate, shows the operation’s scale and sweep
IMHO – Our security community as well as the media unfortunately are not using common sense and logic. They still underestimate the scope and significance of ongoing issues and attacks AMS vendors must defend against.
Associations were targeted as early as 2010 according to our logs. If memory serves me correctly. (It’s expensive to do computer forensics.)
Attacks on associations, non-profits, NGOs/NPOs skyrocketed, I’d say, in 2014.
Former FBI Director Comey testified that the FBI became aware of it in 2015.
The involvement and influence campaigns, and attacks, have not decreased as I write this in December 2018.
