No, not the same
Reading stuff about "cyberwar" and hot war being two aspects of the same thing...
No. Not the same thing.
First and foremost, it's ALWAYS POSSIBLE to defend yourself from cyberespionage and cybersabotage. You DON'T NEED web-connected thermostats and refrigerators. Household machinery performed quite nicely for 100 years before it started taking orders from Soros. Devices that you can't live without, or can't work without, can be protected easily. The paths of spying and sabotage are known, and you can break or fence off all of them.
Second, there's NOTHING SPECIAL about the cyber versions of spying and sabotage. Every competition, from business to athletics to government, tries various forms of spying and sabotage. At every level from human agents with binoculars, to orchestrated gossip, to computers and TV, it's ALWAYS POSSIBLE to defend your soul and your stuff. Sometimes it's not worth the effort. It doesn't really matter if the other football team learns your strategy.
You CAN'T defend yourself from a bomb or an artillery barrage or a Kamikaze jetliner. Those are real weapons of real war, and you need a real government to defend you.
The real problem is not the existence of spying and sabotage and bombs and bullets. The real problem is that our "government" has turned traitor. Starting in 1861 and increasing rapidly since 1946, the DC monstrosity has been more concerned with running sabotage and war against its OWN citizens than with defending them from enemies.
The only exception to that rule is FDR. He tried to DEFEND us from bankers and globalists, and he didn't start any aggressive wars to justify internal terrorism.
