One way to defeat the surveillance state.

In China, there are cameras everywhere, but if you pick a smoggy day — which is pretty much every day — they won't see you.

the surveillance state will encourage people of all religions both sexes to start wearing a veil.

And the air quality of the large cities in China will encourage people of all religions and both sexes to start wearing face masks, which for purposes of concealing identity are nearly as good.

We dress like students, we dress like housewives,
Or in a suit and a tie
I changed my hairstyle, so many times now,
I don't know what I look like...

Facial recognition software can be defeated many ways.

Since they all look at certain features and shapes of the face, just change them a bit and the program will fail to recognize.

Or you can wear a hoodie like Trayvon.

I grew up in Los Angeles in the 60's so I thought I knew smog.

But that ... that's smog!

But you don't understand: This is Chinese smog. You know, the "People's Smog".

It's not anything like that icky capitalist smog you find in the US.

This is the smog of the "Workers Paradise" and of the brave band of revolutionaries marching toward a glorious future.

As opposed to those horrible Americans with their fracking-murder and republican obstructionists!

Looks like those bad days in the LA basin. I'd heard about it, but the first time I saw it was on a Convair 880 coming into LAX.
