Digital Authoritarianism: AI Surveillance Signals the Death of Privacy, by John W. Whitehead and Nisha Whitehead

They already know virtually everything you do and say and they want to know more. They don’t gather all this information for your benefit. From John W. Whitehead and Nisha Whitehead at rutherford.org:

“There are no private lives. This a most important aspect of modern life. One of the biggest transformations we have seen in our society is the diminution of the sphere of the private. We must reasonably now all regard the fact that there are no secrets and nothing is private. Everything is public.” ― Philip K. Dick

Nothing is private.

We teeter on the cusp of a cultural, technological and societal revolution the likes of which have never been seen before.

While the political Left and Right continue to make abortion the face of the debate over the right to privacy in America, the government and its corporate partners, aided by rapidly advancing technology, are reshaping the world into one in which there is no privacy at all.

Nothing that was once private is protected.

We have not even begun to register the fallout from the tsunami bearing down upon us in the form of AI (artificial intelligence) surveillance, and yet it is already re-orienting our world into one in which freedom is almost unrecognizable.

AI surveillance harnesses the power of artificial intelligence and widespread surveillance technology to do what the police state lacks the manpower and resources to do efficiently or effectively: be everywhere, watch everyone and everything, monitor, identify, catalogue, cross-check, cross-reference, and collude.

Everything that was once private is now up for grabs to the right buyer.

Governments and corporations alike have heedlessly adopted AI surveillance technologies without any care or concern for their long-term impact on the rights of the citizenry.

As a special report by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace warns, “A growing number of states are deploying advanced AI surveillance tools to monitor, track, and surveil citizens to accomplish a range of policy objectives—some lawful, others that violate human rights, and many of which fall into a murky middle ground.”

  2. The original intent of the constitution wasn’t that it guaranteed rights to the people but that it clearly restricted the governments operation and limited it to protecting the people. This no longer applies since the Act of 1871, now the government determines what it will do and whether or not any ‘subject’ is a threat to the state. A supreme court ruling declared that the first responsibility of the police is to protect the state, not the people. Those who seek the position of power do so for their own aggrandizement not because they have an inclination to ‘serve’ the people. This began with the very first president who wrote a nice paper on why it was important to use only precious metals as money and not allow a central bank, and when his helper Alexander Hamilton suggested starting a central bank with fiat currency he immediately approved. Then instituted direct taxation to pay the debt and forbid freedom of assembly and speech for any who resisted or complained that this was not allowed under the constitution. No president since has been any different.
