Jeff Bezos became the richest man in the world by building a surveillance state for everyone else, but when the tables turned on him, he throws a fit. What’s good for the goose is apparently not good for the gander.
Total Surveillance Society
China is proving that Technocracy is expansionary, seeking beyond its own people to dominate the whole world. 5G, AI and IoT are the three most important technologies to achieve that goal, and thus, China intends to dominate all three.
The Department of Homeland Security has penetrated large hotel chains to extend the Fed’s surveillance network to include unsuspecting travelers and especially women. Aside from rank discrimination, this is an ominous warning for all private industry.
Citizens and lawmakers have no clue about the risk of home security devices and privacy invasion. Who else has access without your knowledge? How do you know if you have been or are being hacked? The answer is that you don’t know.
An outright consumer rebellion is the only thing that will stop giant companies like Walgreens from micro-tracking you from entrance to exit. Walgreens offers an empty promise that they won’t track your identity, but that is nonsense because other stores are already doing exactly that!
If Sidewalk Labs “gathers and de-identifies the location of cellphone users”, it means it HAS the identification and location of the cellphone users. Technocrats have no ethics and zero restraint in using any and all data that they can collect
Nest is owned by Google. Wouldn’t you think that Google could secure its Nest devices if it had mind to do so? This again exposes the wanton disregard for security of the technology being pushed by Big Tech. Other Google products include Android, Google Home, Gmail, etc.
Technocrats are rapidly filling up outer space with spy satellites and weaponry. Russia collaborated with UK scientists to develop much of this technology. Basically, everybody is spying on everybody else and the space race is on.
This article is correct to state: “But if human rights concerns aren’t enough to move U.S. policymakers, there’s another reason to act: Exporting surveillance equipment enables digital authoritarianism and hurts U.S. national interests.” However, TN readers know that Technocrats don’t care about U.S. national interests!
Unchecked surveillance-for-profit is upon us, but is driven as much by Technocracy as by Capitalism itself. Technocrats are data-hoarders who can never get enough data nor exhaust their drive for analysis of collected data.
