Not only does the Internet create convenience in sharing and receiving information between users, another advantage of the modern Internet is its ability for automation. Enter “The Internet of Things”, where devices and sensors communicate with each other to automatically perform a designated task or function.
In Modern world, there is more a Technology war going through between the countries. The one who is more enriched with technology measures and infrastructure is considered to be a super power of this whole planet. It is a lot more to just nuclear weapons. In present, we talk more on 5G and 6G as our war weapons. Huge investments have been made by each America and China just to get control over this world by launching different technology programmes each day. Our security is totally dependent upon technology systems. China has launched 5G technology and working furtherly on it.
“Modernized world is more based upon an Artificial Intelligence”
We see robots or machines are working instead of human and working many times efficient in comparison. Shift of modern technology is a main factor behind unemployment today.

For an effective response, one need to be well aware and in a good defensive position as well.
A global war for 5G technology is already started between the emerging superpower countries. There is a new race of technology exchange among foreign competitors and huge investments have been made in it via Huawei (A multinational company) recently.

Propaganda and Power of Digital Media
The digital media has become a modern weapon today. This type of technology has achieved new relevance as a political tool too. The presidential campaign of last general elections the United States was notable for its success in soliciting donation via social media. Many political groups use it to achieve a new method of organizing for carrying out their mission, having given rise to social activism, most notably practiced by rebels in the Arab Spring.

As per thoughts by Global mindset, they say “Covid19” (a recent global pandemic) will have a long lasting impacts on world politics also. In fact a new era of Corona Virus has been started. Some consider this coronavirus as a tool induced by world leaders to change the prevailed system and to replace it by some technology shift. Because they are fear of technology war among world competitors who are in race 24/7 to get a single control of this planet.
Enrich countries have modernized weapons for this purpose but from the past experience (1945-Nuclear attack on Hiroshima and Nagasaki), they learnt that use of such mass destruction weapons or traditional war techniques are not a way to get this. In Fact it can also involve you in a big crisis. (Nine Eleven 9/11 attacks as example). So one has to shift towards technology and economy war. The one with most of technology is said to be supreme and also in a better economic conditions. In today, invest more on technology to get more of your interests.
Global technologists are talking for a new world order shift after COVID-19 Pandemic. Because this unseen virus has shaken the basic foundations of the balance of power and the existing world order. To consider the impact of the current crisis on economy and today’s world challenges, they say that this virus has exposed out the old weakened system indeed the existing world order. In Fact they are talking for a new world order which will be strong enough, at least to minimize any crisis in future and to secure lives in a better way. Unlike the twentieth century where one can not get hit by some disease spread at somewhere, it is 21st century a more globalized place to live. Where one enjoys the fruits of globalization will also have to share diseases or any other loss due to global fact of technology revolution.
