Tesla makes itself part of China’s surveillance state. From Eric Peters at theburningplatform.com:
When corporations get into bed with government, it’s uswho get the fleas. Obamacare, for instance.
Big Med plus Big Government.
Sometimes, you can’t actually see the fleas. But they’re there, just the same.
Turns out Tesla – which builds electric cars but makes money by leveraging government mandates – has set up its EVs to live-feed information about where each of their cars is at any given moment directly to the Chinese government.
Their car italicized to make the point that it’s not really your car when someone else has open access to it – and so, to your life. The car tracks your movements, records where you’ve been, how long you stayed.
The government takes note.
According to the Associated Press, which broke the story, the Chinese government merely wishes to obtain “data points” for the purpose of “infrastructure planning” and – of course – to “improve public safety.”
How isn’t specified.
