  1. Most country collects data on their citizens nowadays. And people are also starting to care less. Here in India govt collected facial, iris and fingerprint data to make a database known as aadhar.
    Sad fact is that hackers from China and US and pvt companies also hacked and stole data from these govt database. So, basically our govt actually helps other countries to invade our privacy and make us vulnerable to outside threat instead the promise of extra security.

  2. Asian Times Journalist No Quality Depend G-8 Country No Democracy or Human Rights 20 Years 25 Years Power Russia Turkey China Leader Maybe Asian Times Human Trafiking Involved I Hope Today Exit My Life Partner and Me Bangladesh Army General Eight Years Business Involved FBI Investigation Solved Problem

  3. South Korea has a MASSIVE cctv surveillance network. Compared to NYC there is no theft or violent crime in Seoul. You can leave your wallet and phone sitting on a bench for 4 hours and nobody is gonna steal it. If something does get stolen the police are pretty good at tracking your stuff and actually get your stuff back.

  4. Very advanced technology. Hopefully this will, anywhere, eliminate mass shootings, car and truck rammings, sucker punching, assaults, corruption, fraud, theft — while maintaining and promoting freedom of speech, thought, opinion and expression. Or are the two mutually exclusive? Or worse yet clamping down on the latter, while turning a blind eye on the former?

  5. I imagine most governments, not just China, is surveilling their people. Don't delude yourself into thinking that China is the only one doing this.

  6. Jesus Christ loves you if you seek Him diligently you will find Him and you will know The Truth and The Truth will set you free

    Romans 3:23-25
    King James Version

    23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

    24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

    25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

    John 3:16
    King James Version

    16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

  7. Is it good or bad?
    We know western governments want to do the same.
    London has more cameras than anywhere else in the world! Why is no one’s saying anything? Double standards?

  8. "And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life.
    And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.
    The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. 
    Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire." (REVELATION 20:12-15 NKJV)

    Today, while you are still alive and able, may you repent from your sins, believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that JESUS CHRIST is your Lord and Savior, so that through Him, your name will be written in the Book of Life.

    "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him 
    should not perish but have everlasting life.
    For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." (JOHN 3:16-17 NKJV)

    Please do not ever forget that..

  9. So what do you want us to do about it? Go and overthrow the CCP or remove the cameras? Looks like anything Anti China is the biggest selling news perspective and NYT has to cash in on the TREND.

    On the other hand, Freedom in US is fictitious. Like people already give alot of info to silicon valley and NSA ALREADY HAS ACCESS TO IT.

    then you go ahead and put a spin on xinjiang and how this is meant to target a minority (that is know to be under developed and habour extremists. The security system is being developed all over the country. Not just a single province.

    Finally, it's not even a secret like in the US. As you said National Media already reported on the technology capabilities. It's not like you hit a gold mine of Chinese State secret

  10. The only difference is, The US government can't do it so they use Silicon valley and NSA has access to all info about you. Americans trust Corporations more than the government, the Chinese trust the government more than Corporations. In the end, it's all the same coz the government gets what they want anyway. But in China, Corporations can't just do whatever they want.
