The Christchurch Call

Because you are a Pollyanna if you actually just take any government at their word that they would not deploy the technology used to suppress any uploaded video in real time, from multiple nodes, against political enemies. Hell, that’s what the call is for up front – a political response to violent extremism. There is no science supporting their call. There is only emotionalism, and this disgusting, ever-present, assumed moral superiority on the part of professionals everywhere, including government. Government is only ever going to ask for more power. There have to be limits. Facial recognition? The ability to target and suppress dissident speech, perhaps even covertly? Really? You go ahead and be okay with that, but in that case fuck you, your opinion no longer matters to me and all I know is that you ought be resisted.
