Yep, this is the country people say should take over global leadership from America. The oppressive surveillance state with government-sanctioned organ farms.
Nobody is saying that. The European Union should take over global leadership. They more or less already did from amoral standpoint.

The world has to do something to stop the human rights abuses in China.

Fuck paying more money for goods that are made in China tho.

I can see you being beaten to death and having your organs sold for not having facial registration.

If everyone around you is in the system it's going to make you a target that stands out I'd imagine.
This does beg the question what China is going to do about the people in the country they revoked citzenship.

Basically due to China's One Child policy (which was upgraded to 2 child) any child birthed beyond the mandated cap has their citizenship revoked if they can't pay a massive fine (which is not affordable for most of them).

So legally speaking China has a a few million people in their borders they aren't kicking out but aren't integrating them into the government framework because they aren't supposed to acknowledge their existence.

Something has gotta give here with this galaxy brain doctrine and I don't think they will treat these manufactured minorities well.

*blinks*

*rescans thread*

It's bad enough when people don't read OP's but for someone to pretend they read a thread when you clearly didn't is totally bizarre.
??? I’m not referencing this thread. We’ve had plenty of other China topics with defense forces popping in. And I read the article and thread. What? Your response is puzzling. You did see what I was responding to?

I can see stuff like this coming more popular

They will either patch the software to defeat those, or make them illegal on the threat of a multi-year jail sentence.

China is also the pioneer for the dystopian stuff, they don't care since they know the outside world hates their government. But best believe Europe then the United States will end up having this as well if not already. Those government just won't tell you...

ring doorbell and alike will probably do a pretty good job without any sort of government mandates at the rate these things are sold.
People are willing to sacrifice their privacy for convenience. That's how facial recognition will be 'sold' in the West.

Huaweiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

The majority of people want more security so that's one way of making it happen. A lot of people are also willing to pay from their own pockets to get the latest (spying) tech in their household.
We're all supporting this by purchasing China made products as well (avoidable but with difficulties these days).

Nothing much that will stop the machine from now on. Those are sad times for the Chinese people and not only them.
