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:

- checkpoints (asking about travel, checking temperatures)

- temperature screenings at some airports

- contact tracing apps cataloging all your movements and contacts

- emergency orders/executive orders supporting forced vaccinations, isolation, and quarantine

- involuntary quarantine centers/camps

- thermal drones watching people from the sky

- talk of mandatory vaccines (or making it difficult to live without vaccination)

-face recognition tech to fight covid19 (by tracking people violating lockdowns)

- discussion of immunity passports/digital certificates to travel

- censorship of alternative viewpoints

- raiding of businesses for not closing
