Did you read the article or just have a knee-jerk reaction? Perhaps this is why?

"Xinjiang is the home to the Uyghurs, a Turkic people who mostly follow Islam and have a distinct culture and language."

Re: Our dystopian future?

Does anybody even read 1984 anymore?  Ahh, that warm fuzzy feeling of being looked after by our governments. (sarcasm)

Re: Our dystopian future?

More like "our dystopian present", or "very near future"...

state officials are really into intelligent, big data processing, networking of information, storing all the information and linking it up, applying AI and predictive policing for it,

This is already happening in the West, also - but, is being done covertly instead: http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php? … 60#p670674

Also, in China, subversives are taken into reeducation camps. While, in the West, people who defy the establishment have car "accidents" (https://www.corbettreport.com/episode-2 … -hastings/), commit "suicide" (https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/ … 0b6989ebe/) etc.

The only other major thing separating us from China, right now, is the fact that we still have Democracy. But, just like it happened in Europe, in the first half of the 20th century (including in my country), that can change.

All that is needed, is for these supposedly Islamic terrorist attacks of dubious origin (https://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/d … wledge.htm) to continue, and become bigger, a "state of emergency" being declared because of such, and that will be the perfect excuse to "suspend Democracy" (as one establishment politician says, in my country: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5naDDnigsw) obviously, during an "indefinite" period of time, just like it happened in Egypt (http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-18283635).

Listen to what Richard Stallman has to say about all this: https://vimeo.com/28195912

In Paris, for example, because of the series of terrorist attacks in France, you already have military troops patrolling the streets, and you can be forced to show an ID card just for being at a train station, or close to it. (Just like during Nazi occupation!)

Hell, with the Economic Collapse that has already started (http://forum.prisonplanet.com/index.php … #msg899883) and that will be truly felt in about a year (https://twitter.com/i/web/status/984053725621698565), the whole *huge* social unrest that this will cause, will be another perfect excuse for a more authoritarian and controlling Police State.

You think that the Internet, as we know it, is going to last forever? It's not: https://www.phoronix.com/forums/forum/p … post996815

You think it's only in China that the government has the ability to shutdown the Internet, and that something like that would never happen in the West? You're wrong: https://www.prisonplanet.com/government … apace.html

I could go on and on about all this...

Nineteen Eighty-Four wasn't written out of a great foresight capability its author had - and, as a warning to Mankind. It was drawn, by an MI6 agent, out of plans that already existed at the time, of what to turn our Western society into. And, the reason why it was written, was to "condition" people for all this - just like the (increasingly) huge amount of dystopian science-fiction novels, movies, TV series (http://forum.prisonplanet.com/index.php … #msg594255) and even computer games that are omnipresent in our culture today.


Have no concerns with using proprietary software. Enjoy the "love" from some of this forum's administrators. And, above all, pay no attention to the fact that Dyne.org receives money from the European Commission to fulfil the latter's political projects.
