Digital darkness: the third apocalypse
From this article:
"Autonomous electric cars are being pushed via policy and distribution to replace petrol and diesel cars. The old technology is sturdy and de-centralised â€“ perfect for coping with prolonged periods of global conflict and power outages. No one is going to win a war with a fleet of Teslas after the first power station is taken down. What really interests the global bureaucracy about e-cars is the possibility of locking GPS maps so that the government can prohibit vehicles from travelling to certain destinations. Instead of being guided by satnav, it becomes a digital prison â€“ the purpose is to stop citizens entering re-wilded areas of the country which have been given to the government for environmental reasons. If you think that sounds a bit like China citing United Nations environmental policy to kick out native Tibetans, youâ€™d be right.â€
