    especially when combined with microchipping. From citizen to livestock in one "painless" step.

    I mentioned this on the conspiracy thread. Icke and others have been warning about this for years and years.

    How ZTE helps Venezuela create China-style social control - https://www.reuters.com/investigates...venezuela-zte/

    Chinese telecoms giant ZTE is helping Venezuela build a system that monitors citizen behavior through a new identification card. The "fatherland card," already used by the government to track voting, worries many in Venezuela and beyond.

    Maduro is also taking steps to force the card’s adoption. The government now says Venezuelans need it to receive public benefits including medicine, pensions, food baskets and subsidized fuel. In August, retirees protested outside social security offices and complained the fatherland rule limits access to hard-won pensions.

    Benito Urrea, a 76-year-old diabetic, told Reuters a state doctor recently denied him an insulin prescription and called him “right wing” because he hasn’t enrolled. Like some other Venezuelan citizens, especially those who oppose the Maduro administration, Urrea sees the card with suspicion. “It was an attempt to control me via my needs,” he said in his Caracas apartment.

    Don't have anything new to add, but I agree that the AI and VR nexus could eventually overwhelm all other developments in terms of impact.

    Interesting to hear that my mystification with the appeal of a lot of recent dancehall is not solely a matter of impending senility. A lot of JA records from 1999-2005 (ish) still sound pretty future to me tho.

    Vybz was holding things together imo, after he got put away the forward momentum was lost . Dancehall needs a new leader, his back catalog is a one way street and Alkaline et al don't seem to be doing anything new. I'm pretty out the loop though
