Two significant changes are taking place. It is advent of Intelligent Malware; second is Virtualization of Democracy. Together it spell doom for today’s monolith software and general-purpose computer science. However, the science of Church-Turing Thesis discovered in 1936, mathematically deconstructs these threats, preventing corruption and crime by replacing digital dictatorships and unfair privileges with democratic alternatives.
Kenneth J. Hamer-Hodges wrote the hardened security code for Capability Based Computer called PP250. He explores the hiatus and the solution to cyber security by comparing and the contrasting Church-Turing Thesis with in several Capability Limited Computers including that Abacus, the Slide Rule, Charles Babbage’s flawless engines, and the PP250 recast as Church-Turing Machine.
These machines detect and prevent computer errors and cyber-crimes to pass these test of time, allowing 21st Century Digital Democracy of people, by people and for people to thrive, unthreatened by monopolies, dictatorships, false news, and software corruption.
‘This book is must-read for anyone concerned with software quality, hacking, malware, and cyber-crime. It covers the waterfront on Industrial Strength Computer Science and faithful, trusted software.’

‘In this provocative book, Ken argues that monolithic general-purpose computer is outdated, unchanged architecturally since batch processing mainframes were locked in secure computer rooms. The tremendous advances in technology since the Cold War means that computer software permeates every facet of society, networked into complex global interactions under relentless attack. Ken argues these systems are vulnerable to bad actors using intelligent malware. These global shortcomings are destroying cyber-society. Ken’s book is a fascinating insight into enormous cyber-security problems of 21st-century democratic society.’
