According to an August 13, 2018 guest post on, 66% of Americans don’t want to live in a “Smart City” because

  1. Americans like their communities
  2. Americans are worried about cyberattacks
  3. Americans are deeply concerned about the mass collection of personal data collection

Another article posted June 4, 2018 cites results from a different surveyAmericans have a love/hate relationship with tech.


Regardless, Big Wireless and their supporters keep insisting that everyone should be living this way.  All the while, many publications and organizations – including Activist Post – have published articles about Americans not wanting to live in “Smart Cities” for reasons in addition to cybersecurity and privacy issues.

Becoming a “Smart City” requires ignoring “The Precautionary Principle.”

All inhabitants (including pets, nature, and wildlife) will be involuntarily exposed to A LOT MORE harmful cell phone radiation, WiFi radiation, 5G millimeter wave radiation, and electrical pollution (Electrosmog) due to hundreds of 4G and 5G small cell towers, sensors, and related infrastructure being installed in front of homes, in public rights of ways, etc.

If this doesn’t sound like the way you want to live, you are not alone.  Columbus, Ohio recently became a “Smart City” and many residents don’t seem thrilled about it at all.

Since 2004, the International Association of Firefighters has opposed the use of their stations as base stations for cell towers and antennas.  If firefighters don’t want radiation emitting infrastructure installed where they spend long periods of time, why should anyone else?

“The Race for 5G,” “Smart Cities” and “The Internet of Things” (IoT) are also a waste of taxpayer money.

Roxana Marachi, Ph.D  wrote a fantastic article about efforts to make San Jose, CA a “Smart City.”  It includes 10 questions to ask community leaders and elected officials before they force this hazardous boondoggle where you live.

Many are trying to stop this from happening to their communities.  However, government and industry efforts will continue without more public opposition.
