Interesting article on how fast your ubiquitous data can be turned against you when your government feels threaten like say you refuse to comply to disperse from having an illegal gathering to protest unfair and unjust laws passed by authorities.

It could very well be happening here in The USA very soon,so be aware they the government is very aware of your comings and goings as an individual! And thank modern technology for your lost ambiguity in all things you do public or privately. There will be very little difference here from there if you cross the line and dispute who and what controls your actions and thoughts. There are military vehicles being readied right now in Red China to instill Law and Order.

Around the world, police and intelligence agencies are conducting secret, real-time surveillance of civic spaces?and not just during times of protest. In addition to greatly expanding the depth and breadth of surveillance, new technologies are changing how it?s performed. Today, spying can be conducted remotely and invisibly. Imposter cell towers called IMSI catchers intercept text messages, calls, and internet traffic from anyone who happens to be present in a particular area?. Cameras equipped with * recognition tech are turning people into walking ID cards. Even something as innocent-seeming as public wifi has been used to track commuters.

    Hong Kong is not a country it's a Chinese Territory but if it were it would rank between No. 2 / 3 in population density in the world.

    IE: 17,311 people per square mile.

    The most populous country in the world is Macau.
    Macau is part of China. ... Like Hong Kong across the water, Macau has its own money, passports and legal system that are completely separate from China. The city even has its own snazzy flag. Apart from in foreign affairs, Macau mostly operates as an independent city-state.
    Learned something new.

    Well, well, is it possible China could have more problem areas that REQUIRE CONTROL and not just Hong Kong. :?:

    With the rich lobbyists getting all the tax breaks for their super clients and the deficit debt climbing astronomically for The USA .Then all the bought off Clowns in Congress will sell out The 2nd Amendment meaning to apply only to The National Guard. After that 5G and A.I. surveillance system in place then we the people will be just like Red China Hong Kong soon enough.

    Government ideology of being free with guaranteed rights is just another piece of paper without the First And Second Amendment in our Bill of Rights. Just look at the red Chinese Constution for references.

    http://en.people.cn/constitution/constitution.html

    Article 1. The People's Republic of China is a socialist state under the people's democratic dictatorship led by the working class and based on the alliance of workers and peasants. The socialist system is the basic system of the People's Republic of China. Sabotage of the socialist system by any organization or individual is prohibited.

    The State protects the lawful rights and interests of individual and private economies, and guides, supervises and administers individual and private economies."
