Psychological Warfare and Innovation: A Constantly Evolving Combination
The Internet's great potential, including its extreme ease of access, monitoring deficit, legislative anomie, the wide audience it can reach and the large flow of information that inhabits it on a daily basis make it an indispensable tool for terrorist groups.
The Internet represents the media archetype of the democratic values of freedom of expression, an advocate of the neutralisation of the space-time dimension that unites and opposes any form of fragmentation. The new terrorists carry out their activities online, thus eliding the need for a central command and actualising a conflict characterised and marked by the doctrines, strategies and technologies of the Net.
This propaganda action aims at recruitment and radicalisation.
