Security Strategy and National Resilience in Post Human Era
Technological advances have had a positive impact on human life. The industrial revolution has brought people to an era with extraordinary technological achievements. In addition, many conveniences are achieved for various activities. In short, technology is inevitable for the advancement of human civilization.
Even though technology is a supporting instrument for human civilization, ultimately humans have an important role to play. Technology design, both its appearance and importance, will be based on humans. It is human beings who create technology, operate technology, and eventually humans will determine whether the technology is still feasible or not.
At present, security is an important issue for the world. Security is a prerequisite for economic growth, development, culture, and political activity, both on a national, regional, and international scale. Political and economic activities will be hampered due to problems of security stability.
The stability of a country is no longer determined by how the level of crime is reduced. The country can be said to be stable if it has succeeded in meeting the food needs of its population. Unavailability or high prices of food will have an impact on people’s purchasing power, hence it will cause social turmoil. Likewise with the energy, a country’s productivity is hampered in the event of a scarcity of energy due to the state’s inability to diversify energy for the community.
Security issues are not only based on security aspects which are only approved by the classics, but security issues are also related to other sectors, such as food security, energy, agricultural security, and economic security. Not to mention, security issues are also faced with the problem of the modus operandi that continues to develop along with technological advances.
The issue of terrorism for example, has experienced various shifts due to the existence of technology. Recruitment and dissemination of extreme narratives no longer use conventional methods alone. Today, extreme narratives have been carried out with the help of social media and internet platforms.
