Act Together or Hack Together?  There is a difference in viewpoint on the efficacy of quantum computing and hacking, the ethics behind it, and the countries involved.  Should we be prepared, cyber-armed, if you will, to protect ourselves? Russia and China are in control of their systems.  The U.S. looks, or prefers, to have backdoors for law-enforcement.  What has the E.U. done?  Is Europe’s only choice “…to set an example and go for open systems?”  With a real quantum computer not in the immediate offing, are we creating much to-do about nothing?
