@aral The market will adapt to whatever situations we allow, figuring out how to make profit. We allow profitable surveillance, so that's what we get.
@aral Have you read Zuboff's The Age of Surveillance Capitalism and do you have more specific reasons why you disagree with her?
Eg. If you personally know and relate to an owner of a cornerStore do you care that they know a bitcoin address of yours? That's capitalism but not necessarily #surveillanceCapitalism.
Corporate #bailouts destroy capitalism.
@aral Now that privatised digital IDs and access controls (CommonsPass e.g.) are being rolled out, it will become increasingly difficult to even move in society and doing most basic things in life without submitting to surveillance capitalism.
Yuval Harari's warnings seem to come true in light speed.
