“It’s called a smart city because if they called it a concentration camp…”

“It’s called a smart city because if they called it a ‘concentration camp,’ you might not want to live there” is a saying that has been printed on several images. A “smart city” is an environment controlled by technology.
   
“IT’S CALLED A SMART CITY BECAUSE IF THEY CALLED IT A ‘CONCENTRATION CAMP’, YOU MIGHT NOT WANT TO LIVE THERE” (shown on an image) was posted on Twitter by GingerJim on August 6, 2022.
 
“If you let them use you as a lab rat, don’t be surprised when they put you in a cage” is a related saying about smart cities that are “15-minute cities.”
   
       
Wikipedia: Smart city

They call it a smart city. Because if they called it a concentration camp, maybe they wouldn’t want to live in it.
