Surveillance Capitalism To Surveillance Tyranny

Living in a fish bowlFor those of us that are not living like ‘Jeremiah Johnson’ we have to accept the fact that our daily ‘interactions’ with the digital world bring us into the focus of the ‘Tech Masters’ that have built and control the Surveillance Grid. This is not some paranoid thinking, but the cold hard truth. The primary use of the ‘Grid’ among other things is to document and capture everything we think, say, read, write, watch, buy, and use. Behavior patterns that can be distilled down and sold tor advertising revenue by the Controllers of the Surveillance Grid.

This is called ‘Surveillance Capitalism’, which is now standardized and integrated into life as we know it. The real concern is the progression of the Surveillance Capitalism into Surveillance Tyranny. We’re already seeing the signs of this new reality disguised as ‘Censorship’ and ‘Social Credit Scores’, which are being used to isolate those individuals that the ‘Controllers’ deem to be in non-compliance of the Controller’s expectations.

RT.com has published an Interview with Julian Assange that covers a great deal of this topic. Here are some quotes from this interview/article;

“Before his links to the world were cut by his Ecuadorian hosts, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange gave an interview on how technological advances are changing humankind. He said global surveillance will soon be totally unavoidable”

Police State“Assange has a pretty grim outlook on where humanity is going. He says it will soon be impossible for any human being to not be included in global databases collected by governments and state-like entities”

“This generation being born now… is the last free generation. You are born and either immediately or within say a year you are known globally. Your identity in one form or another –coming as a result of your idiotic parents plastering your name and photos all over Facebook or as a result of insurance applications or passport applications– is known to all major world powers”

“A small child now in some sense has to negotiate its relationship with all the major world powers… It puts us in a very different position. Very few technically capable people are able to live apart, to choose to live apart, to choose to go their own way,” he added. “It smells a bit like totlitarianism – in some way.”

“The capacity to collect and process information about people has been growing exponentially and will continue to grow fast, he stated. With advancements in applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) to big data, the next logical step is coming”

“Assange also predicted that the scale of hostile activities through cyberspace will see a breakout point as soon as AI is trained to sufficiently automate hacking attacks”
