John McAfee is Running For President to Stop the “Cyberwar”

Professional kook John McAfee, famous for developing McAfee antivirus and notorious for his run-ins with the law, announced yesterday that he is running for US President as a third-party candidate under the banner of the newly-formed Cyber Party. McAfee, who was accurately described by the Prime Minister of Belize as “extremely paranoid, even bonkers”, has no revealed exactly why he feels the need to control the United States of America: to prevent a cyberwar that has already begun.

In an op-ed piece for Digital Trends, McAfee discussed his motivations for proposing his Presidential candidacy, which suggest that he views the position of President as a kind of firewall made flesh:

“Our country is not prepared for a cyberwar that has already begun. We haven’t seen anything yet. It is not ready to protect the precious assets of technology that we depend on as a people. We fail at that at an alarming rate. It is not ready to protect our infrastructure, which sits on a precipice of threats. I can change that. I will change that, and it has to happen.

The Cyber Party is the spark we need to awaken the people from their deep slumber. Demand more from your government. Demand honesty. Demand freedom.”

Hopefully, if and when he replaces rhetoric with policy, we’ll truly understand what McAfee wants for America, beyond buzzword demands for “honesty” and “freedom”. If not, at least it should be a fun ride.
