Technological advances allow ChiComs to push totalitarianism to extremes even Stalin couldn’t have imagined. For example, facial recognition technology is used for enforcing facial expression compliance:
Three cameras have been installed above a blackboard at Hangzhou Number 11 High School in eastern China. The system identifies seven different facial expressions — neutral, happy, sad, disappointed, angry, scared and surprised –to determine whether children are focused on their lessons, and if they’re not, the computer will feed this back to the teacher.
A student reports:
“It’s like a pair of mystery eyes constantly watching me.”
Not only is Big Brother always watching, artificial intelligence will increasingly allow him to process everything he sees. The school’s headmaster confirms that those who the machines regard as inattentive will receive lower grades.
Good thing nothing like this could happen her in the Land of the Free. Imagine living in a country were authorities dictate what kind of expression you must have on you face–Oh wait . . .
Northern Lebanon School District students are required to smile while walking the hallways between classes, . . .
Fifteen-year-old Julianna Gundrum, a student at the school said if you didn’t smile there would be consequences. “If you don’t smile you get called to the office or down to see your guidance counselor,” she said. “You have to talk about your problems then. You have to or you get detention.”
Even though smiling in the hallways is not a written role in the district, it is something that Assistant High School Principal Benjamin Wenger has taken upon himself to enforce, according to several teachers. The teachers spoke to the Lebanon Daily News anonymously for fear of retaliation from the district.
Wenger could use some of the ChiCom technology to ensure that he doesn’t miss any noncompliant facial expressions. Advanced surveillance technology might also help him catch teachers who talk out of school.
My question is why is anyone sending their kids to public schools? Where are the marches and protest about this stuff? School is diffidently not about learning any more–it’s about indoctrination and behavior modification.
Oh, and do remember, last week Pa. voted in several socialist candidates.
