Interview with Josh Chin and Liza Lin about their book Surveillance State: Inside China’s Quest to Launch a New Era of Social Control. Discusses China’s use of new technologies for social control; their brutal application to the Uighur people; the relatively benign-seeming applications to traffic control, crime, and public order where Chinese citizens judge the loss of privacy as a small price to pay; and the similar trade-off Western citizens will need to make.
