Market economy and freedom and democracy are in danger. We are facing an emerging new world order.
Some authors such as Zuboff call it surveillance capitalism, other such as Schneier just point out that this is how the new or Internet economy works, surveillance is how you make money and how you prevail in business. Big Zucker is watching you and controlling what you can say. Google does not need to do evil, because it is rather simply evil in its very essence: in how its main job is to help to transform our economy into a stalker economy, where people are abused by business mafias with help of big data and clever algorithms.
In fact the term surveillance capitalism is questionable. I think it is not capitalism anymore. In my opinion this is actually the end of capitalism as we know it. For centuries freedom and ability to change our destinies have been increasing in all sort of ways. Our freedom is now in decline, and we are facing the end of our current social and economical order. Surveillance and AI-based machine economy is closer to slavery than to capitalism. It is a radical game changer where the human race is no longer in charge or no longer relevant, it is going to be enslaved rather than empowered by the technology we have developed. Free will and freedom of choice are over.
We have more than a new economy now, we have a new world order.
Questions to meditate.
