Are you having a hard time digesting the fact that a Korean hacker has shut down the release of a major U.S. movie, The Interview.
Sony has pulled the movie from its Christmas release under threats of a terrorist attack after many movie houses expressed safety concerns.
The comedy depicts journalists instructed to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un after securing an interview with him.
Apparently the leader can’t see the satire and has threatened war, if released.
There is a lot of discussion around whether removing it was the right or wrong thing to do.
Should we cower to terror threats? Do we let outsiders dictate our cultural freedoms? Our freedom of speech?
When asking questions regarding business, follow the buck.
A threat like this could kill the season’s movie business if theatre goers stay away because ‘The Interview’ is playing in the same complex.
As far as war? Yes there may be one.
However this war will not be fought on the battlefield, or by a lone wolf terrorist who inflicts violence in a movie theatre.
This is a cyber-war fought within its infrastructure, with the potential to bring big business to its knees, and is the great neutralizer of all world powers.
