Eventually every company and all of society will be dragged into this surveillance-crazed Internet of Things. Those who refuse to participate will be heavily discriminated against. This is the heartbeat of Technocracy, and it is closing in fast.
Crowd and riot control receives a technocratic boost with the Bozena Riot vehicle, to be used only by governments intending on controlling their own citizens. Police departments are already heavily militarized with armored vehicles, high-caliber rifles, drones and robots. The Riot will be the consummate final addition.
When drones were originally adopted by law enforcement, there were abundant assurances that they would NEVER be weaponized, and so citizens went back to sleep . However, this writer warned that weaponized drones were certain to happen unless the practice was sternly outlawed. It wasn’t, and now it is happening.
In the name of fighting crime, all citizens will be punished. Lazy and sloppy police work and inability to properly contain criminal elements, make it easier to implement draconian surveillance platforms. This is absolutely wrong-headed but it is sweeping the nation. Note that city police departments exist at the instance of the city councils, and report to the mayors.
Technocrats build because they can, and in the process, humanity is being deep-conditioned to be willingly controlled by robots, AI and Smart Assistants. The creators will eventually serve their creations.
The short answer is “Yes.” While suspects enjoy lawyer-client and husband-wife privileges regarding confidentiality, there apparently is no such expectation from some inanimate object that you own, and even those placed in your home without your knowledge or consent. This is hardly Constitutional, but nobody has risen to challenge it in court.
Smart Cities are build upon total surveillance where integrated sensors are placed throughout the city on buildings, light pols, street signs, etc. The web of Scientific Dictatorship is expanding rapidly.
Technocrats all say that their science is “settled” and that everyone else must obey. These students were kicked out of school because they opted not to take vaccines. If vaccines really worked as claimed, why would any vaccinated student be worried? This is a religions war that is developing between Scientism and everyone else.
Technocracy demands full-spectrum surveillance in order to scientifically manage all of society and its individual citizens. Apparently, there are no ethical discussions as to the wisdom of allowing this technology to be implemented. Of course, many citizens complain about it, but the ‘developers’ pay no attention.
The rapidly developing police state is very disturbing, but Technocrats fully intend to use technology to control and micro-manage citizens. No discussion of ethics or desirability has yet been seen.
