Activist Post Editor’s Note: As Americans point to China’s surveillance and social credit apparatus as the worst that Communism can offer, most are still unaware of how many similar systems are rolling out across the U.S.
The latest example of social credit “lite” is being brought into American universities with an app to track and monitor students. However, the SpotterEDU does more than just track students, it goes a step further by assigning points for various positive behaviors.
Tim Pool takes a closer look at some of the other ways that authoritarianism is creeping in slowly but surely via convenience and technology. It would be wise to more closely examine some of these precursor systems to much wider social control so that we don’t completely go down the path to full-blown Technocracy.
