Effects of Unregulated Digitalization on Health and Democracy
A Call for Using Technology with Discernment
The Fourth Industrial Revolution and the digital transformation include a number of beneficial and harmful innovations, the latter presenting a severe threat to health, essential human rights and democracy that must not be underestimated. The public and decision-makers need to differentiate and be careful what they welcome and what they oppose in the name of digitalization.
This in-depth booklet showcases aspects of the process of digitalization that negatively impact (public) health, essential human rights and democracy. It discusses radiation-based wireless technology (including 5G), the impacts of excessive or misguided use of digital technology on mental health and development as well as the inhumane conditions under which some technologies are being produced. It further explains the threats emanating from the surveillance economy, Digital ID, a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) and the idea of a cashless society.
