I'm not arguing that surveillance and social control are new. I'm saying it looks as though they may be ramped up yet again and with tech that provides greater scope than ever before.Surveillance and social control aren’t new, no-one has to buy a smartphone

Ignore Piers Corbyn. That's like asking what you're supposed to do if you don't like the idea of Brexit but also think David Cameron's a fucking prick. There are pricks on every side of every issue.What are you supposed to do if you don't like the idea of vaccine passports but also think Piers Corbyn is a fucking prick?
A long time, but I don't see how that's a rebuttal as I don't like that either. Pointing to the previous and current levels of control as justification for further control isn't particularly convincing. That's like arguing someone monitored at work shouldn't care if their employer starts monitoring them in their home because it already happens at work.How long have you lived under the gaze of cctv?

Sure. You don't have to buy a smartphone, but you're risking becoming a second-class citizen without one if the people sounding the alarm on this stuff turn out to be correct. You aren't allowed to work, shop for food and all sorts without proof of vaccine in some areas, so if the system's tweaked so that only digital proof is valid then you're stuffed without one.
