I like to think we have / will have something similar...

Not with this government in charge. And I do mean specifically this one. A JK-era National government would have at least considered sensible limits.

Still, it's nice to know there's a few governments left who actually do pass up the chance to spy on everyone they can think of, just because they can...

I don't think we have limits for Ai biometric use by Supermarkets etc?

 

I still remember right at the start of SARS2.
Everyone entering New World being 'instructed' to take off their mask for the camera at the entrance.
Ok it did not last longer than the first news report, but what were they thinking?

 

Private security companies and such, and data that is very valuable training database, where is that going?

 

Police are probably least of our worries, though having more would mean they would not have to use technology so much to make up shortfall.

 

Your best protection are still strong democratic institutions and education about how this benefits all.
Your Evangelical paradise can rapidly turn into hell if it needs an autocrat to enforce it.
Maybe you end up with Jim Jones paradise of Jonestown.
Oh yes for Evangelical you can just go insert 'Religion' or other 'Dogma'.

The technology genie does not stay in the bottle.

 

Strengthen democratic and legal institutions, so you don't get presidents for life.
Or Victor Orban.

Sometimes I'm tempted to walk into a shop with a paper bag over my head to see what would happen.

 

Or maybe tin foil...

Draw a smiley face on the bag. We should all smile more :-) 

Tin foil is scratchy and does not breathe, paper bag is much better for the skin.

Thanks for the advice. I shall bow to your superior knowledge on the subject...

Pro-tip, always wear two paper bags in case one comes off.
