Optimistic is a nonessential valve used for progress to evolve or engage.
“Monitoring people will be normal because citizens spend so much time monitoring each other.”
I often wonder about Facebook turning everyone into a busybody or kibitzer. People innocently pull into constant monitoring for new posts about meal photos, current location, personal videos and other found like posts. It feels normal because everything is open to share and personal information is being posted anyway.
By 2020, our society is so conditioned to give away personal information online or Facebook, participatory transparency will then justify homeland security legislation for more cyber monitoring, because it will feel so natural and reasonably aligned with government transparency.
This will open the door for more local police monitoring technology and then helpful drone surveillance becoming an economical choice for municipalities. Monitoring people will be normal because citizens spend so much time monitoring each other.
The unintended consequences will be modular drones for military use built in automated factories and the social monitoring commonplace becomes Orwellian then Skynet fruition, all because people share too much information on Facebook.
As a solution to multiple legal challenges, that independently proved companies leak too much big data by human error or greed, cyber security government contracts begin to consolidate resources. For the sake of protecting other laws and citizen rights, big data monitoring and security is allowed, over time, to consolidate redundancies into a single company. The new monopoly is challenged, but the lobby in Washington is more powerful than average citizens can afford to oppose. Citizens start looking for a cyber security hero to protect the middle class.
A former CEO of big data cyber security, and for his respected leadership, is elected President of the United States, his solution is the monopoly absorbed into a new division of the Central Intelligence Agency.
At the end of his second term, he helps justify legislation to inventory all communication devices with an RFID license fee which requires all electronics to be manufactured and sold with RFID tags. This is justified to avoid raising taxes for new expansion of big data monitoring, avoid stacking patches in the current structural decay and to avoid something bad happening involving bad guy stuff. The solution also builds from ‘inventory’ branded a key word improvement to ‘surveillance’ and for the positive opinions of the ‘inventory’ alternative in human development, supported by local groups funded by dark money.
Finally the RFID tag law evolves to require all things to be made with RFID tags. A national RFID registry of everything is enforced by flying modular drones, despite the hyper-adoption of 3D printers, everyone is tracked to follow government guidelines for healthy living, absent of creative thought or opposing views. People are slowly oppressed and reprogramed into simple lives occupying indoor malls with birth names like THX1138, or something like that.
All because people posted too often on Facebook before 2020. Alternatively the same fate could spring from my excitement about the internet of things. Especially because I expect Facebook to go bankrupt in about 6 years.
