Release "The Interview" in Public Parks - Do Not Cave-in to Cyber Terrorists

Sony has set an immeasurable precedent in deciding to pull the Christmas Day opening of its film "The Interview" because of the declaration of "Cyber War" through hacking that has been launched against the company. 

The company's decision and that by movie theaters to pull the film could be understood from a public safety concern perspective, yet, this is America, and should this nation begin the dangerous trend of bowing and cowering to terror threats, it sets a bad example for the future, while on the other hand empowers and emboldens other cowardly thugs to exact fear into the veins of the population.

Sir Eric Williams, the late Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago, once calculated that ten minus one equals zero -  in reference to the impending break up of the 10-nation West Indies Federation, once the first country left. He was right, the loose federation soon fell apart. In respect to Sony's actions, the calculus infers zero plus one equal all. Now all corporations are susceptible to caving to cyber and other threats. And as we get set to enter 2015, how many more such acts of "Cyber War", intimidation and racketeering will become evident?

Sony could stand tall and release "The Interview" in public parks on New Year's Day as a statement of strength and damnation to "Cyber War". The Jumbo-tron in Times Square, Bryant and Central Parks in New York City, Griffith Park in Los Angeles, Boston Commons, in Boston, Biscayne Park in Miami are all ideal places to issue a resolve to terrorists of the World that nations will not be held ransom to their cowardly acts. But Sony is a Japanese company. So maybe this time, the hackers have won - Cyber warriors one, innocents zero.
