This is precisely the aspect that I fear the most.
The very thing that provides "ease" will also be the very thing most fragile and open to invasion. As such, it's also open to interpretation.
When we choose to participate in these services, when we choose to be monitored and regulated by outside sources, it gives people we do not even know access to our every move and judgment that will determine,- without human consideration, - our "risk factor" and make decisions for us.
Totally random thought but last night, Hubby and I watched the premier of the new series "Almost Human" and part of the plot included setting off a massive pinch or EMP. With this, automatically everything electronic is shut down and zero access can be granted.
That is not "in the future." That ability has existed for a while. To my knowledge, there's nothing short of advance knowledge and total shut down before emission, that can "protect" anything associated with electronics.
It does concern me, and to be honest, while I can appreciate the ease that comes with some of these developments, there's always this part in the back of my head, (watching the news about ID theft and hacks doesn't help),...where I can see just how easily all of our entire histories can be tracked and our lives exposed for the world.
My time for tears will be at my Victory...not at the start of the War. ~~Vickie
