Conundrum for the night:

An overwhelming majority of civil society researchers engaged in counter-influence operations research believe that governments should be leading efforts and funding into counter-influence operations, and yet governments and political leaders are themselves primary actors in committing influence operations in the first place.

Initial reaction: this points to a fundamental disconnect between the expected role of government by civil society, and the practical reality of power as a source of influence (and hence governance, generally).

Today only 5% of counter-influence operations initiatives research are government-run.
