Rise of the Cybergens is about a new generation of 100% digitally gifted young people aged 13 to twenty-something who are replacing the Millennials as the emerging, global power demographic. They are highly prone to terrorist radicalization. A battle wages, not just among the U.S., China, and Russia, and a vicious arms race at the edge of the digital abyss, but between ISIS and the West, and the hearts and minds of the youthful Cybergen cohort. Will they become ‘cyber-warriors’ for God and Country, or will they be seduced by terrorist propaganda, from within the Internet wilderness? Cybergens are born to hacking as the ‘new normal’. They seek refuge in the Darknet, where no one can find them. Their presence, across this country, go from the Boston Marathon to San Bernardino, CA. It is a trail of death.
The book is based on the idea that Reagan’s Nuclear Cold War is replaced by a Cyber Cold War, being played out by the Cybergen’s manipulation of the Internet. Many of the strategies imposed by President Reagan can be applied to today’s crisis. The author’s first book on the subject, ‘Cybercentrism and the New Cybergens’, was focused on the changes inherent in emerging demographic models, and the evolution from Geocentrism to Cybercentrism. Dr. Gordon’s new book focuses on the young Cybergens, as they emerge into today’s Cyber Cold War environment, where the Internet is the new battlefield.
