Creating "a future of tech-driven authoritarianism, potentially leading to a loss of privacy on an industrial scale."
While we want to point to China the US and the UK are no saints here. I think the only thing we can hope is that China will step over a line that convinces politicians here to enact laws restricting the use of technology in such far reaching efforts.
