American "independence" was won with subterfuge and revolution, but this would fail today in a smart city or from the Internet of Things and AI data analysis. State and federal constitutions prohibit "unreasonable searches and seizures," knowing tyranny, blackmail, threat, or physical force may result.

Technology can intrude not only on our privacy, but shape our society and formidable weapons.
Technology allows concentration of power, gathering of information, and facilitates fake truths. Military research such as Next-Generation NonSurgical Technology examines how to read and write into brains, developing knowledge that may be used to read secrets or manipulate minds. Technology and tech investments need to be circumscribed, regulated, and absolutely reduced.
