“”It’s rare for patent applications to lay out, in such nightmarish detail, the world a company wants to bring about,” said Jacob Snow, a technology and civil liberties attorney at the ACLU. “Amazon is dreaming of a dangerous future, with its technology at the center of a massive decentralized surveillance network, running real-time facial recognition on members of the public using cameras installed in people’s doorbells.”” [ACLU slams ‘nightmarish’ Amazon patent application to bring facial recognition to your front door | Fox News]

The ACLU is worried and rightly so!
You should be mighty worried as it will indeed be “nightmarish.”
The evil track record of governments is such that law abiding citizens are the first to be abused because they are the humble in the land. (See www.hardtruth.us for proof it is impossible to to mind your business and do good in the land.)
You should be terrified at the ongoing constriction of your right to even move-about, let alone talk or relate to another person.
Then I looked again at all the acts of oppression which were being done under the sun. And behold I saw the tears of the oppressed and that they had no one to comfort them; and on the side of their oppressors was power, but they had no one to comfort them. Ecclesiastes 4:1
- “The ACLU has previously called attention to Amazon’s Rekognition program, which the tech giant has sold to police departments and marketed to ICE, as being discriminatory toward people of color, immigrants and the formerly incarcerated. A test found that the Rekognition system wrongly identified 28 lawmakers — most of whom were people of color — as police suspects.” ACLU slams ‘nightmarish’ Amazon patent application to bring facial recognition to your front door | Fox News]
“For the past several months, Amazon has given police in Florida and Oregon facial recognition tools for less than $12/month, according to documents obtained by a Northern California branch of the ACLU.
The previously undisclosed surveillance programs (which resemble programs across the globe) now face the wrath of civil rights advocates who fear the program will target vulnerable populations.” Amazon under fire after giving its facial ‘Rekognition’ software to law enforcement ]

“The ACLU lawyer concludes by saying: “Amazon is building the tools for authoritarian surveillance that advocates, activists, community leaders, politicians, and experts have repeatedly warned against. It is doing so without regard for how the technology will be exploited by law enforcement, ICE, and other government agencies prone to violence and racial discrimination.”” ACLU slams ‘nightmarish’ Amazon patent application to bring facial recognition to your front door | Fox News]
