Episode 46: Facial Recognition and Monitoring Technology, Defund The Police and the left and right swings of the USA
A frank discussion with just Shawndra and Tommy that covers a lot of ground. Facial Recognition Technology, Data and Activity Monitoring, and the good and bad of these technologies. We cover the 'Defund The Police' movement and why we think a better slogan would work better. Not that we know what that is. We speak about systemic racism and Shawndra wonders how far along the evolution of humanity we actually are. We cover the vast left and right swing of this country from the Revolutionary War to the Civil War to the Great Depression to present day. The waves and troughs we have traveled. We end with a Frank Sinatra clip from 1945 where he teaches some boys on the street about American values and how we all need to be more accepting of the differences in each other for America to succeed. Prescient then - and still prescient today.
