H. B. is interested in second-order effects, such as what happens when we tighten network controls in the name of Security. An insecure Internet leads to insecure systems; but even a secure Internet is not as trustworthy as one might think. (Who watches the watchmen? - we have seen bad behavior from governments, ISPs, Facebook ...) And even in terms of basic security, we may expect a flood of new attacks, with the rise of the Internet of Things.
