Also changing the software of a car should require physical access. It is irresponsible that this can be done remotely.

It would also be nice if PC makers would add a hardware switch for data/archiving hard disks.

How about a law that says any device with a camera and/or mic is required to have a hardware switch to turn it on and off.

"Both China and the United States are constructing surveillance states on an unprecedented scale, with horrifying implications. Both empower modern-day monopolies whose platforms, hardware, software, and apps are the infrastructure of modern political, economic, and social life — infrastructure that is not subject to democratic control."

Sent off first draft of a new series on popular education facilitation for #RodoJoho #労働情報 - the idea is to publish a series of participatory learning activities that people can try out and critique/improve for use in Japanese worker organizations.
