“Any fool can tell a crisis when it arrives. The real service to the state is to detect it in embryo.”

Now, as TechCrunch reports, India is shutting down 59 apps, including the popular TikTok video App from their networks, while the noose around American apps like Facebook, and the oligarchy of even Apple is increasingly tightened.

I called technology, publicly then, the unprotected back-door to nation-state sovereignty, a veto India now refers to as technology “engaged in activities which is prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, and security of state and public order.

The days are numbered thinking you can sell the equivalent of sugar-water to the world and expect to get away with spawning yet another mind-numbing addiction that accelerates an anthropogenic cascade.
