S'il on utilise une métaphore, la guerre psychologique peut être assimilée à une partie de poker où chaque joueur cherche à se présenter aux autres comme celui ayant la meilleure main, en bluffant. C’est, comme l'a dit Sun tzu, L'Art de la guerre qui consiste à jouer des faiblesses de l'adversaire pour le subjuguer (de l’anglais « to subdue », issu de l’ancien français « soduire », lui-même issu du bas latin « subdere »).

Изначально криптография изучала методы шифрования информации — обратимого преобразования открытого (исходного) текста на основе секретного алгоритма или ключа в шифрованный текст (шифротекст). Традиционная криптография образует раздел симметричных криптосистем, в которых зашифровывание и расшифровывание проводится с использованием одного и того же секретного ключа.
C’est notre monde maintenant… Le monde de l’électron et des commutateurs, la beauté du baud. Nous utilisons un service déjà existant, sans payer ce qui pourrait être bon marché si ce n’était pas géré par des profiteurs avides, et c’est nous que vous appelez criminels. Nous explorons… et vous nous appelez criminels. Nous recherchons la connaissance… et vous nous appelez criminels. Nous existons sans couleur de peau, sans nationalité, sans dogme religieux… et vous nous appelez criminels. Vous construisez des bombes atomiques, vous financez les guerres, vous assassinez et trichez, vous manipulez et vous nous mentez en essayant de nous faire croire que c’est pour notre propre bien… et pourtant c’est nous qui sommes les criminels.

Font description

Mourier is a geometric alphabet designed by Eric Mourier in 1971 following a strict set of rules. The font is based on a square of 7 x 7 units and made of unclosed lines. The first and only use of the lead-cast font was on the booklet "The Myth about Bird B", a leporello design by Mourier and written by Knud Holten (a poet).

In 2002, Sébastien Hayez adapted the typeface as a digital font, with the approval of its original designer (thanks to him), which was afterwards published as part of the Velvetyne Type Foundry collection in 2011. Then, in 2020, Ukraininan designer Alex Ash (Alexander Kondratenko) proposed a Cyrillic alphabet expansion of the font, of which he had imagined the capitals. Ariel Martín Perez took this opportunity and developped lowercase letters for Latin and Cyrillic scripts (with feedback from Alex Ash for the Cyrillic), added diacritics and symbols, mastered the font and also created several sets of alternates.

About the original design, in Eric Mourier's own words:

"About the lettering, it may be stated that the individual letters have been designed on the basis of a rigorous, detailed scheme: Forty-nine squares, black and white in rows alternately, no closed areas, gaps the size of one square, etc. Within this scheme, the aim has been to obtain the greatest possible likeness to ‘ordinary’ letters, and, simultaneous, a logical system of forms. The letters c and u, k and y, a and v, to exemplify, are identical, only variously turned.

The letters have been transferred to film, cut apart, and mounted seperately on self-adhesive foil, page by page."

If you want to contribute to Mourier, please follow the original rules of the typeface :)
