Baseball fans are demanding answers as this invasive technology gains steam

The game of baseball remains America’s pastime, entertaining fans for nearly 150 years.

Until recently, baseball remained largely unchanged.  However, new and radical developments threaten to completely alter this age-old sport. 

And baseball fans are demanding answers as this invasive technology gains steam.

Surveillance state grows

In today’s world, you cannot go anywhere without somebody or some corporation following your every move. 

Not only does your phone track your every step, but given the massive spike in crime, most people have installed cameras in their businesses, on their front doorsteps, and even in their own homes. 

Now, it appears that the next time you go out to a ballgame, you’ll need to smile for the camera just to get in. 

According to the Houston Chronicle, the Houston Astros will start testing a biometric entry system known as “Go-Ahead Entry,” which requires fans to take a photo upon entry into the Astros’ Minute Maid Park. 

More specifically, the Houston Chronicle reported, “to register, fans who are 18 and older and have a digital ticket to the game in their MLB Ballpark app take what amounts to a selfie through the app.”

The groundwork to implement Chinese-style Digital ID, Surveillance, and Social Credit-scoring restrictions on American citizens

The report added, “According to MLB officials, the images of fans aren’t stored or shared, but instead converted into a digital token that is used to authenticate fans’ likenesses as they walk through the gates. Fans take the selfie just once as they register and it will be used throughout the season upon entry.”

Predictably, some fans are uneasy about this digital “security” measure, which league officials have attempted to address.

Per the Houston Astros Marketing and Communications Vice President Anita Sehgal, “It’s almost like if you have CLEAR at the airport.”

If you have flown recently within the United States, then you may know what Sehgal is talking about.  

Although CLEAR, which uses biometric data in the form of eyeball and fingerprint scans, remains a voluntary service, the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) has begun rolling out a pilot program using similar technology and facial recognition at many American airports.

So for many Americans, an MLB team also now adopting biometric data technology and entry controls is equally troubling. 

America’s ever-expanding surveillance state will keep expanding unless citizens draw a red line

As Americans become more dependent on technology and are groomed to see such invasive and abuse-prone surveillance technologies as normal, you can expect so-called security measures such as this to expand. 

Although the MLB likes to pretend that such data will not fall into the wrong hands, cyber attacks happen on a daily basis in the United States.

And that’s not to mention all of the bad actors in Big Government where officials like FBI Director Christopher Wray have now admitted to purchasing valuable personal data from Big Tech partners, which they would otherwise need to get a warrant for.

Americans should be very alarmed at the federal government’s growing use of such means to side-step privacy protections in current law, including the U.S. Constitution.
