@alyaza I think states spend a lot of money and time making propaganda to seep into every aspect of our lives that tells us the state is this all-powerful, unavoidable god-machine, but even the surveillance state has its limitations and overlooks shit, and it can take aaages for them to rifle through the masses of data they collect. The government and the police are humans capable of mistakes, and more importantly vulnerable to being overcome by humans, but the easiest defence of the state is to convince people that victory is impossible and therefore attack is useless

These same arguments were used against revolutionaries under feudalism.


@scottishwobbly aye, police states aren't a new invention, they've existed for some time now, as have methods of resisting them.

The fact one of the fiercest ongoing revolutionary movements in the world is in a colony of the PRC (the de-facto example of an authoritarian surveillance state), proves the effectiveness of these tactics.
