The People’s Republic of China is expressing the totalitarian power that social media provides them by giving benefits or denying privileges based, in part, based on their online activity. The State of New York is poised to tell the Chinese Communists “hold my 白酒”!
“Anyone who wants to buy a gun in New York would need to submit their social media profiles and search history prior to purchase if new firearm legislation in the state becomes law.
“Officials would be able to review up to three years worth of search history.”
More and more, people’s online persona(s) can be linked to their own person in “meatspace”. This is monitoring for thoughtcriminals writ large.
The Bill of Rights and the 14th Amendment are not suggestions, but the law.
