is it? technocracy means tyranny enabled by 'technology'. I thought cpunks were against tyranny.

that's the alleged theory. In practice he's promoting more surveillance using the already existing technofascist infrastructure that he can't actually control.
where I live ordinary joe-sixpack fucktards are putting cameras everywhere because they are afraid of ordinary thieves (whle cheering the government). The end result is that there are arpanet surveillance cameras everywhere. Same thing is of course promoted by the likes of ammazon-mosad-nsa-gchq and other 'private' facades for the state.
surveillance is surveillance, no matter who is doing it.

recently? The 'balance' of power by definition is always on their side(so there's no 'balance' actually). And 'technology' has always 'empowered' the rulers.

Yeah, what I'm saying is based on facts that are widely known
1) there's a global surveillance state run by the western nazis (including all the 'private' companies that ayn rand loves so much) and accomplices
2) historically 'technology' has never ever led to an increase in political freedom.

so hopefully you realize that the "huge majority of hackers who distrust the government" exist only as a pentagon propaganda meme. In reality the vast majority of 'hackers' are sellouts working for the pentagon.

I'm comparing the number of times that surveillanec helped govcorp like this
to the number of times that it helped 'the masses'. Jim has so far named 2 cases where filming cops allegedly...changed nothing actually.
have you ever read this piece of self-parody or govt propaganda, or both?
