We need ti begin thinking of ways for technology to help us avoid this - before it happens. I disagree with crypto-currency being a long-time answer, because soon enough, it will be made illegal because cetnral banks won’t allow competition against their CBDCs.

Much worse, like 1984 was in 1984 https://streamable.com/n8skoz
Tecnology IS used to control us since a long time.
it is about to get far, far worse and the WEF itself has ‘warned’ us of it. ANY tool can be used for good or bad, of course. Where are America protesters against nuclear wars? I see all of the European protesters in videos, but no Americans. Yet, it is Biden and our evil leaders who are beating the war drums. George Soros alluded that we will go to war with China soon - he seemed to say in 2022, because his January address to his Open Society said this year will be a very, very important one in history records and he also barely mentioned Russia, yet was quite focused on China.
Wars are never started by people on the street, they are always started by political leaders and economic or religious powers. The same ones in these are hidden in bunkers, while people who don’t even know each other, kill each other under the command of those responsible for this madness. It should be like in the antiquity, where the kings and rulers fought in the front row in wars, if this was forced on the current leaders, the world would be much more peaceful.
Sure, but now we are heading right into Dystopian levels of control. I was looking that Italy is already running a pilot reminiscent to the CCP’s social credit in two cities. Canada is working with the WEF to setup a Digital ID along with the Netherlands, and have put aside about $105 million for the project. Soon enough, with Central Bank Digital Currencies already being called for, you will see a Citizen Wallet type of profile on everyone. You can see how it all comes together in perhaps a year or two.
Not to mention the Liberal Party in Canada sneaked a law via Covid Emergency Powers so they can now freeze your bank accounts if they deem you an issue, at will. No court order needed anymore, like before. Canadian have less legal protections in that regard than a lot of 3rd world countries, now.
I know that Warren in the USA was pushing for CBDCs earlier this year, and they would allow for a type of monetary and financial micromanagement right out of a dystopian movie.
Plenty of times humanity have found ways to control and keep a society under control; long before technology. This is just a new way to do it, along the other ways that are already happening.
I agree. In the past (still, really!), religion, superstition, woo was how it was done. The difference with this newer technology is that our every step will be tracked and known. That wasn’t possible until a few years ago and will continually get worse.
It already is.
See: Security cameras.
I’ve seen the videos about this and it is scary that people don’t own their own camera/doorbell-camera footage.
But, things are about to get far worse and we all need to stick together to fight this. United we stand. Divided we fall. Companies such as Google and Amazon are big players in this power grab. But, so are banks and file companies. I sure hope everyone gets very acquainted with the names on the WEF partner/shareholder lists and removes as many of them from their lives as possible. Here is one of the lists: https://www.weforum.org/partners#S
just the new wolf crying.
of course it already is. no political discourse can be seen at face value. it’s so tiring.
