Understanding Smart Cities, 15-Minute Cities, and How We Win

• Activist Post

By Derrick Broze

What exactly is a "Smart City" and how does it relate to a "15-minute city"? And what does any of this have to do with individual liberty and freedom of movement?

You've likely heard the terms "Smart City", or its more recent cousin, "15-minute city", but do you truly understand what these concepts call for? Do you know which organizations are responsible for promoting the ideas? More importantly, are you prepared to survive and thrive in the face of these liberty-crushing plans?

To prepare for any potential future emergency, we must better understand what we are facing. Let's start by understanding what is meant when we speak of "Smart Cities".

The term typically describes an urban area which is outfitted with 5G towers (and soon, 6G) which allow the speed and bandwidth needed for autonomous vehicles, robot assistants, and sensors in the street to moderate street lights and issue environmental warning alerts. All of this would be powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI). Collectively, the sensors, devices, and infrastructure are known as the so-called "Internet of Things" (IoT).
