"So! then you can go away, stupid surveillance capitalism. "

The Age of Surveillance Capitalism. The Fight for the Future at the New Frontier of Power
Forfatter: Shoshana Zuboff
Forlag: Profile Books (USA)
MONITORING: I just don't realize that the root of the problem lies in digital penetration everywhere.

It may seem disconnected, but I do
bored me so goddamn about all that talk of surveillance capitalism.
Article headlines like «We live in the age of surveillance capitalism – and we
have not yet understood the consequences of what »(Information.dk) gives me
fatigue and nausea – the latter due to the «we».

Who are we just?

Us, who apparently have a joint project and ... what? A common opponent? Yes, apparently, judging by another headline: "Surveillance capitalism is diagnosed – now we can fight it" (Information.dk).

Oh, this cluttered «we», which is so
undefined that one can immediately feel how weak the blows must become. "So! can you so
go away, stupid surveillance capitalism. Or at least make a social
contract, just like in the good old days. "

I get the same feeling when I sit with
one of the central focal points of the discussion: Soshana Zuboff's famous book
The Age of Surveillance. . .
