    but not easier to catch dissidents! For some reason.

    •  That's right. (0+ / 0-)

      It's easy to catch dissidents now. It's just that nobody does.  Go figure.

      HEY COGNITIVE INFILTRATORS! I googled "confirmation bias" and Daily Kos raided my house! And and and smashed my hard drives! Ask CNN, it's all truthy!

        What a strange, ahistorical comment. I'm seriously baffled.

        •  Well, consider that history. (0+ / 0-)

          Nobody needed facial recognition software to figure out who the Japanese were.  Nobody needed the NSA to figure out who the union organizers were.  

          But you seem to think that the evil powers that be are waiting until facial recognition software to.....something.   Care to explain why they are shy about using the good old fashioned way?
