    whats fucking disturbing is this tool talking about this shit like its some social panacea, like “maybe if the government and corporations followed and tracked our every move the wed all behave better!” Hey fuckhead, no shit we would. Because if we didnt, theyd pinpoint us for displaying “anti-social attitudes” or “extremist sympathies” or some other such Orwell inspired bullshit. People like this, who clamor and salivate over every new piece of technology no matter how it affects society at large, frankly sicken me. But hey, its new! Its shiny! I make believe it gives my shit life one iota of meaning! Then fuck it! Plant the cameras, im yours!
