Remove the army and we will have a stronger national defense

Remove the army and we will have a stronger national defense

Distracted “A


Many media reporters are touting ‘passwordless’ authentication as found in this article “Going Passwordless: What Are the Benefits For Your Business?” https://www.infosecurity-magazine.com/opinions/passwordless-benefits-for-your/

“The army is so vulnerable to air attack. What is vulnerable to attack is detrimental to our defense. Therefore, we must remove the army so that we will have a stronger national defense.”

You might well think I am making a bad joke, since this proposition sounds too insane. I am, however, dead serious. 

The army-less defense should be viewed as valid where people believe in the merit of ‘password-less authentication, alleging “The password is so vulnerable to theft and abuse. What is vulnerable is detrimental. Therefore, we need to remove the password so that we will have a stronger identity security.”

A number of big names are touting this queer theory loudly on the global scale. We do wish that no democratic governments will be misguided to get trapped in this ludicrous misperception.
