era of private wars and destabilisation

Following the recent assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse, carried out by hired Colombian mercenaries, it is widely believed that members of the Haiti’s wealthy elite were responsible for removing their own president. Recent years have also seen the sale of obscure hacking tools, such as “Pegasus” developed by Israeli firm NSO, which have clearly fallen into the wrong hands in Mexico and been misused by governments in India, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. If the monopoly on violence and surveillance is shared, not just by governments, but also by financially elite interests, is the misuse of mercenaries and surveillance something we are going to see more of in global politics moving forward . Are we entering a new age were individual’s can afford to destabilise countries to their benefit?
