For the first time, the Cambridge Analytica whistleblower tells the inside story of the data mining and psychological manipulation behind the election of Donald Trump and the Brexit referendum, connecting Facebook, WikiLeaks, Russian intelligence, and international hackers. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY EVENING STANDARD Mindf*ck goes deep inside Cambridge Analytica's "American operations," which were driven by Steve Bannon's vision to remake America and fueled by mysterious billionaire Robert Mercer's money, as it weaponized and wielded the massive store of data it had harvested on individuals-in excess of 87 million-to disunite the United States and set Americans against each other. Bannon had long sensed that deep within America's soul lurked an explosive tension. Cambridge Analytica had the data to prove it, and in 2016 Bannon had a presidential campaign to use as his proving ground. Christopher Wylie might have seemed an unlikely figure to be at the center of such an operation. Canadian and liberal in his politics, he was only twenty-four when he got a job with a London firm that worked with the U.K. Ministry of Defense and was charged putatively with helping to build a team of data scientists to create new tools to identify and combat radical extremism online. In short order, those same military tools were turned to political purposes, and Cambridge Analytica was born. Wylie's decision to become a whistleblower prompted the largest data-crime investigation in history. His story is both exposé and dire warning about a sudden problem born of very new and powerful capabilities. It has not only laid bare the profound vulnerabilities-and profound carelessness-in the enormous companies that drive the attention economy, it has also exposed the profound vulnerabilities of democracy itself. What happened in 2016 was just a trial run. Ruthless actors are coming for your data, and they want to control what you think.

Zum ersten Mal erzählt der Whistleblower des Datenanalyse-Unternehmens Cambridge Analytica die Insider-Geschichte des Data Mining und der psychologischen Manipulation hinter der Wahl von Donald Trump und dem Brexit-Referendum. Er gibt dem Leser einen höchst anschaulichen Einblick in die besorgniserregenden Verstrickungen von Facebook, WikiLeaks, russischen Geheimdiensten und internationalen Hackern. Mindf*ck taucht tief in die »amerikanische Operation« von Cambridge Analytica ein, die von Trumps Berater und Chefstratege Steve Bannon und dessen Alt-Right-Vision eines neuen Amerika gelenkt wurde. Finanziert wurde das Ganze vom Hedgefond-Milliardär Robert Mercer. Cambridge Analytica hat die Daten von mehr als 87 Millionen Einzelpersonen gesammelt und analysiert, um diese dann im US-Wahlkampf gezielt beeinflussen zu können. Aber auch bei anderen scheinbar demokratischen Entscheidungen, etwa der Brexit-Abstimmung oder den Wahlen in Nigeria, wurde diese Form der Manipulation genutzt. Der Kanadier und politisch liberale Christopher Wylie stand im Zentrum dieser Operation, er hat als Profiler daran gearbeitet »zornige junge Männer« zu manipulieren und zu mobilisieren. Erst vierundzwanzigjährig hatte er einen Job bei einer Londoner Firma angeboten bekommen, die mit dem britischen Verteidigungsministerium zusammenarbeitete. Angeblich waren sie mit dem Aufbau eines Teams von Datenwissenschaftlern beauftragt, um neue Strategien zur Identifizierung und Bekämpfung von radikalem Extremismus zu entwickeln. In kurzer Zeit wurden dieselben digitalen Werkzeuge für manipulative Zwecke eingesetzt, und Cambridge Analytica war geboren. Wylies Entscheidung, ein Whistleblower zu werden, führte zur größten Datenkriminalitätsuntersuchung der Geschichte. Seine Enthüllungen aber gehen weit über diesen Fall hinaus. Sie zeigen, wie Data Mining funktioniert, und warum die Arbeit von Cambridge Analytica eine Blaupause für künftige Manipulation von Meinungen ist - auch im deutschen Wahlkampf. Christopher Wylies Buch zeigt nicht nur die bedenkliche Sorglosigkeit der sozialen Medien, sondern auch die tiefe Verwundbarkeit der Demokratie selbst. Durch digitale Propaganda von Firmen wie Cambridge Analytica werden vermeintlich freie Wahlen bereits online für denjenigen entschieden, der mit genügend finanziellen Mitteln die Ängste und Hoffnungen der Wähler beeinflusst. Was bei Cambridge Analytica geschah, war nur ein Probelauf. Rücksichtslose Akteure bemächtigen sich unserer Daten, und sie wollen kontrollieren, was wir denken.
