if you want a description of the future

try this.

It’s a description of the high-tech security sales video an Israeli security firm (who go by the cute name NICE) is shopping around the West. Just go and read it.

I’m not sure how paranoid and fearful you would have to be to accept this as normal.
(I am sure how paranoid and fearful you would have to be to think this has terrifying potential for abuse and stifling freedom and dissent.)

Of course, we should have expected that the offer of a boot stamping on the human face has been spun as “policing with a more human face”.

    I am in favour of everything, everywhere, being under constant video supervision.

    But only if everyone, everywhere, can access any of them at any time.

    No secrets, ever, from anyone.
