Just talking to a mate of mine in Beijing, apparently Beijing is locked down again after 200 cases of Covid but he was telling me about their tracking system.

Everyone (absolutely everyone) has an app with a 'health barcode' unique to them. This app tracks you 24/7 to a resolution of a couple of metres and if you have been in a high risk area it turns from green to red. 

If you book a restaurant, travel, stay in a hotel, go skating, anything, you have to show your health barcode. 

They seem pretty happy with this as a price for battling COVID. 

I wonder if it's going to end up here at some point?

People who say they won't stand for this shit, were probably posting in March 2020 that they wouldn't stand by if they closed the pubs, if they made it illegal to not wear a face muzzle in a shop, if they made it illegal to see your dying parents.

Agree to an extent, but I think it depends on where you draw your line in the sand. Location tracking by law is a bridge too far for me, and I simply will not comply with it if it is enforced. My phone hasn't left the house since the begining of August and will not do any more. My new normal.

Agreed.

But with so many frightened people believing everything that the government says, you only make yourself look like a crazy cunt if you do make a stand.

The masses have to turn. It might happen, it might not. They do take some waking-up from their slumber, and it takes very extreme circumstances for that to occur.

Until they do, any protest will likely only get you hurt by fines and arrests. If your conscience says you must, fair fucks to you. But without tens of millions doing it, it is ultimately futile...

What occurs to me is that the German population in the late 20s/early 30s would have probably been ok with it. Not all, but enough of them.

They'd been poor and in the shit, and they were getting richer and more powerful again, and their cohesive orderly society was increasing the pace of the improvement all the time and making them feel superior - there are a few parallels. Is Xi the next "bigger and better" Hitler who will bring "Ordnung"? First to Taiwan (like Alsace and Sudetenland) and the nations of the South China sea (Poland etc), then onwards?

Spot on timimg for starting this thread @Roger_Mellie

BBC employees are to be tested for Coronavirus twice per week and given “social distance proximity devises” upon entry to the building, according to new rules set out this by the managing director this morning. The electronic tags will be rolled out “in key BBC locations to maintain safe social distancing” and will “alert wearers when they’re less than two metres apart from someone else”, supposedly via a beeping noise.

The parallels are there. I did take the call down a bit of a dark path when I pointed out that having a personal serial number tattooed and used against you was close to living memory for some people and it didn't end well. 

How bad would it have to be to get to the point where people would do literally anything to get their 'freedom' back?

It couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of people.

I'd end myself if that became commonplace. I certainly don't want to live in THAT world.
