High Technology Totalitarianism: The Ultimate Dystopia; Manufactured Charisma in the Cyberworld

  • Ronald M. Glassman
Chapter

Abstract

Orwell already envisioned this in 1984 – “Big Brother is watching you.” Dictatorial regimes, like that of China, are already using the newest technology to surveille their people. Dictators can and will use television and the internet to enhance their charisma to make them look like “gods.” It is the divine Kingship all over again, magnified in the cyber world.
