China's bid for total control is facilitated by ominous advances in technology: GPS tracking, bugged phone conversations, the monitoring of app use, and security cameras that can locate a single person within a crowd of 60,000. In some schools, children's facial expressions are monitored to make sure they are paying attention, and in the new Social Credit System, citizens are scored for good behavior, with punishments if they fall short.

Offering a warning about what can happen under the pretense of national security, Strittmatter notes that China hopes to export its surveillance technology abroad.
