Over the last eight months we have seen many governments around the world enacting authoritarian practices in the name of preventing the spread of COVID-19. All the way back in January, the Chinese government began welding people in their homes to stop them from potentially contaminating others. As the panic spread around the world eager politicians now had the excuse they needed to push policies which restrict freedom of movement and speech.
The authoritarian measures have now grown to include the following:
- involuntary quarantine centers/camps
- thermal drones watching people from the sky
-face recognition tech to fight covid19 (by tracking people violating lockdowns)
- discussion of immunity passports/digital certificates to travel
