A Pentagon war game from 2018 for Generation Z used the world’s leading digital currency Bitcoin to distribute funds to “worthy recipients,” reported The Intercept.
The Pentagon war game called the 2018 Join Land, Air, and Sea Strategic Special Program (JLASS) involves discontent Generation Z, those born after 1996, launch a “Zbellion” in America in the mid-2020s.
Zbellion plot, however, was just one of the parts of the war game. JLASS 2018 also featured Islamist militants in Africa, anti-capitalist extremists, and ISIS successors.
Conducted by students and faculty from the US military war colleges, the war game covers the future through early 2028. It intends “to reflect a plausible depiction of major trends and influences in the world regions,” reads over 200 pages long documents.
According to the scenario, the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the Great Recession have influenced the attitudes of Gen Z. Having lived through these events as part of their childhood, they are least likely to believe in the “American Dream” and feel the “system is rigged” against them. Gen Z actually prefers person-to-person contact to online interaction.
In early 2025, the dissatisfied Zoomers launch a protest movement. A group known as Zbellion begins a “global cyber campaign to expose injustice and corruption and to support causes it deem[s] beneficial.”
Starting with Seattle, the movement first spread in the US; New York City, Washington, Los Angeles, and Austin; then all over the world — Europe, cities throughout Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.
Zbellion’s would-be members are ordered to siphon funds from corporations, financial institutions, and nonprofits that support “the establishment” through sophisticated malware accessed on the dark web.
The gains are then converted to bitcoin and distributed to “worthy recipients” including the members who claim financial need. This wealth distribution is assured by the Zbellion leadership to be untraceable by law enforcement. It is also “ultimately justifiable,” because targets are selected based on the “secure polling” of “network delegates.”
