I don’t think anyone would argue that we have made significant strides in technology over the past several decades. In fact, advancements in technology are emerging at exponentially faster speeds.
Just think about the relatively new ability to track our every move. Credit cards, toll-taking devices, bar code scanners, license plate readers, GPS systems, smart phones, tablets … the list goes on.
Virtually every one of us can be geo-located and our expenditures tracked by someone, somewhere, at pretty much any time, day or night. And most of the time, it happens without our knowledge or direct consent. I used to think that I was just paranoid, but now I think I’m not paranoid enough!
