Everything that is later abused starts for our benefits. At the moment these meters will do what some on here said, calculate peak times and save
But they can also be switched off from afar. And not just by a chosen and trusted handful of people but by Darren in the call centre if need be.
Darren of course being a synonym for the absolutely dimwitted temps who can't often be trusted becau8se they literally don't give a snip. We worked
with a Darren who kept hanging up on people when he couldn't be bothered. He also closed accounts and other shenannigans that brought a lot of people
a lot of hassle.
The same with the airport xray thing they promised us would not see the employees laughing at fat bodies or genitalia, and yet they did. Why? Because
we are human, some young, others foolish, often both.
I don't want my electricity in the hands of anyone. But that is just the beginning.
Anything will always end up shafting the consumer, intruding more and more. They won't just know how much electricity you use in which room, but there
are also 'smart' appliances that will tell them which one you used.
Are you boiling too much water, too often? Have too many baths? Why is your TV on all day, don't you have anything better to do?
Do you really need to have two computers running at the same time, you will be fined for that...etc?
After that, we will get into the territory of "you haven't got any smart appliances, what do you have to hide?
Also, if Darren can switch you off whenever, more sinister people will also be able to hack the system, because the bad ones will always find a way.
See bank accounts and anything else that was told it's safe.
But for now, it's only a 'seemingly practical' solution. I always think of years ahead. The internet was also great once and so was nuclear fission.
Humans will always feck everything up and use it for control. Ask the chinese who managed to turn cameras and electronic cards into an Orwellian
nightmare. Who'd have thought that when the first Daguerrotypie camera was invented?
