constructions of realities.

How easy is it for everyone to create their own reality? However easy it used to be in the past, the possibilities offered by the new technologies of the 4th industrial revolution make it even easier – and more “fun”. As the means change and evolve, the end remains the same; to create and maintain ideologies. Here are two of the many tools that can be used by anyone to create “fake news” and / or “fake faces”.

Total “health protection”: automated incrimination…

If you were planning to travel outside national borders, even within the “Schengen area”, you certainly have various problems, difficulties, obstacles. Everything may be hastily built, but violently on the theorem of infectivity of social relations. Many (state and business) “resources” have been allocated to maintain the terror – of – disease.

There may be applications with the company name; but there are tens of thousands of applications with other names that use (without shouting) its technology.

Contact surveillance – the applications

On May 5, england began the pilot application of the contact surveillance platform on White Isle. Undersecretary of state for “health and social welfare” Matt Hancock announced the launch of the program with a short video that would look more like a “war and armaments” ministry order. In this way the “order for voluntary use” of the application appears as advice for social good.
