What type of society do you want your grandchildren to inherit.
Here is a NBC article that sheds light on 21st century technology misuse.
From the attacks and ongoing targeting of American officials as reported by NBC to China’s dystopian social credit system, society needs to understand how 21st century technology can be used against us. Apparently, there are people that have already shown the willingness and ability to misuse 21st-century technology against the defenseless without consequence. It seems they are creating a society based on the premise that those with technological power can do whatever they want to the defenseless without consequence. We need to take the time to safeguard ourselves, our loved ones, and future generations from this type of 21st-century misuse of technology and technological totalitarianism.
When and how will the same type of 21st-century attacks and harassment that the US officials receive start occurring to everyday citizens? Is it happening now?
Imagine the plight of the US Officials and their families if they received no help, were misled by others, destroyed in every way, labeled as mentally ill by the people they needed to help them, had no power to defend themselves, were harassed, and discarded by “normal” society. Now, imagine if something like this happened to the young woman who waitresses where you eat lunch in order to pay for college, the single mom down the street who is working two jobs to care for her baby, the customer service representative you called last week who is supporting his wife and children. Well, apparently, it is. This appears to be happening to many people across the country. However, they do not get Senators discussing it, Intelligence Services investigating it, State Department management of it, news organizations reporting on it, a concerted Medical examination of it, and the resulting help for them and their families. Instead, they get tormented, misled, mislabeled as “mentally ill”, harassed, discarded by society, and destroyed by the misuse of 21st-century technology.
These people and this community are worth investigating as they represent a sector of 21st century society that is now a dystopian society of technological totalitarianism.
What is occurring to these people aligns with what is happening to US officials except they are not US officials and did not get the coverage and help that the US officials received. There is no reason to believe that non-US government officials are immune from this type of attack and harassment. In fact, there are many reasons to believe that this would be used against the powerless (to model and test it) before it would be used against those with some power (For example, government officials from the world’s most powerful democracy.). They represent what society looks like when this happens to those without the support of the US government, journalists, medical professionals, legal professionals, scientific researchers, etc. Basically, when you take US officials and add the diverse cross-section of people in the targeted individual community, it pretty much represents every level of society. This means that they can target whoever they want whenever they want. In time, with the right level of capacity and/or desire to do so, they could target an entire society and implement technological totalitarianism.
If any measure of this is true, then we may already be too late to stop those that would misuse 21st-century technology against us. If they have not already won, then we must take action to ensure that 21st-century society does not become the draconian, dystopian society where the powerful dominate the powerless using technological means of totalitarianism.
What are we waiting for? I hope it is not an “Until it happens to me approach”. There is too much at risk.
