...I almost forgot.
I posted this photo on the fb on January 11th, 2020. It is a picture of a picture. The original photo was taken with a Kodak Instamatic camera shooting a 126 cassette on 9 June 1973. My wedding day. The folks in the photo are my baby sister and my youngest brother. The photo has faded and lost some of it's luster with age... What happened when I posted this photo on fb should scare the crap out of any reasonable person. fb's facial recognition software instantly and correctly identified my brother in the photo. A picture of a 46 1/2 year old picture of a youngster in a church basement, taken through the acetate page cover of a photo album. Not a good picture to begin with. The photo I took of that picture with my cell phone loses even more quality. And he was correctly identified. Immediately.
Orwell was far ahead of his time. Dick Tracy is real. Star Trek is the future.
There is no going back. There are no do-overs.
America has become a database for (political, governmental, advertising, and financial) tyrants to use as they see fit. There are cameras taking your photo on every street corner, at every ATM, in every bank, pharmacy, grocery store, convenience store, and gas station that you walk into. Your picture is taken at every fast food drive thru that you go through. Every court house, office building, and apartment complex.
And at your friendly neighborhood DMV...
And Americans see this as good.
Have a nice day.
