HARPA: The Marriage of Big Tech and Big Government

Among the reasons not to let Big Tech behemoths spy on us, we can now add defense of the right to bear arms. Trump reportedly favors the creation of a Health Advanced Research Projects Agency (HARPA), which would collect data from sources like Apple Watches, Fitbits, Amazon Echo, and Google Home and use it to identify citizens who cannot be trusted with a firearm.

Via WaPo:

Trump has reacted “very positively” to the HARPA proposal, according to a person with knowledge of the discussions and has been “sold on the concept.”

Unsurprisingly, Ivanka Trump has been described as “the most effective champion of the proposal.”

The idea is for the agency to develop a “sensor suite” using advanced artificial intelligence to try to identify changes in mental status that could make an individual more prone to violent behavior.

As Paul Joseph Watson notes,

The proposal bears some similarities to Communist China’s social credit score system, where citizens’ behavior is tightly surveilled and then met with rewards or punishments.

With HARPA, Big Tech and Big Government would exchange wedding vows.
