Woolf often conceives of life this way: as a gift that you’ve been given, which you must hold onto and treasure but never open. Opening it would dispel the atmosphere, ruin the radiance—and the radiance of life is what makes it worth living. It’s hard to say just what holding onto life without looking at it might mean; that’s one of the puzzles of her books. But it has something to do with preserving life’s mystery; with leaving certain things undescribed, unspecified, and unknown; with savoring certain emotions, such as curiosity, surprise, desire, and anticipation. It depends on an intensified sense of life’s preciousness and fragility, and on a Heisenberg-like notion that, when it comes to our most abstract and spiritual intuitions, looking too closely changes what we feel. It has to do, in other words, with a kind of inner privacy, by means of which you shield yourself not just from others’ prying eyes, but from your own.
The US Justice Department is charging figures linked to the Chinese military with stealing US trade secrets, in an escalation of tensions with China over economic espionage.
Suspicions about extensive corporate data theft have swirled around China for years, but never before has the US formally accused the People’s Liberation Army with criminal activity.
Last year, a report by the information security firm Mandiant concluded that a unit of the PLA, known as Unit 61398, was likely behind data theft comprising hundreds of terabytes. It found that the scale of the espionage was unlikely to have occurred without government sponsorship.
But it is unlikely that the US accusation will result in placing Chinese officials in custody, and some diplomatic risk is likely. James Lewis, a cybersecurity expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said the effect would be “intangible” but the formal accusation “sends a strong message” to Beijing.
The cybercrime accusations come as the disclosures surrounding the National Security Agency indicate that at least some US surveillance redounds to America’s economic benefit.
This should do as much as the sanctions against Russia have done in re: the Ukraine.
