Here’s a thought experiment that may seem far-fetched, but it isn’t:
Would you be comfortable if a hostile power could monitor and control virtually every aspect of your life – including how and whether things work in your home, what is done with your personal communications and information and even our country’s defense?
Incredible as it sounds, we may be within days of such a prospect becoming virtually certain. Communist China is poised to secure its stated goal of dominating the world’s fifth-generation – or 5G – wireless networks.
The United States can still avert this potential crisis for its citizens and national security by changing the model for access to wireless spectrum from the current one that enables the Chinese 5G takeover to one that will facilitate an open access, free market approach – and thwart Beijing’s plans. But we must flip this model now.
