“We live in a surveillance society. It is pointless to talk about surveillance society in the future tense.
In all the rich countries of the world everyday life is suffused with surveillance encounters, not merely from dawn to dusk but 24/7.
Some encounters obtrude into the routine, like when we get a ticket for running a red light when no one was around but the camera. But the majority are now just part of the
fabric of daily life.”
