Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Bill asks: Will being constantly bathed in 5G radiation affect automobile electronics? I suppose not since they will be designed as Internet of Things vehicles and will use the 5G it is being bathed in.
My reply: I think the real question is – will it affect us? We’re told 5G is harmless – in terms of health – and maybe so. But will it be harmless in terms of our liberty? Our privacy? Our right to be free from ubiquitous monitoring – and control? I have grave doubts about that.
We are about to be immersed in what is styled the “Internet of Things” – everything “connected,” ostensibly for convenience – but the fact is that the tech can be used for purposes not so benign. Even our homes will be part of this electronic collective – and that creeps me out.
I’d trade my right one to be transported back to 1970 – at my current age – so I’d be too old to care once we got to here again!
