SHENZEN, China, August 17, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Face recognition software installed in 200,000 close circuit tv cameras; government monitoring of all personal computers and cell phones; a central computer system that will store data on all citizens including the number of their children, education records, medical and credit histories, medical insurance status, names and phone numbers of landlords and employment histories and ethnicity.
All of this may sound like something out of a futuristic spy thriller or dystopian science fiction novel, but it will soon become the reality for citizens of the large southern Chinese city of Shenzhen, near Hong Kong, where it is being run as a pilot project by China’s national security. The Daily Telegraph reports that the Chinese government announced the technology to run the scheme will be provided by China Public Security Technology, a company run by Chinese entrepreneurs and registered in Florida.”
If you think this has nothing to do with us here in the USA, just go to China-Mart, I mean Wal-Mart, and see where the majority of merchandise is made. China’s stuff has invaded, and continues to invade, our lives daily. When will this technology be practiced on us “by them” as the norm?
