Farewell to Modernity in the New Age of Surveillance

• truthout
An increasing number of premises and public spaces are permanently monitored. Stationary radars deployed by the roads monitor our vehicles and the speed at which they move. Our every entrance, not only into banks, but also shopping malls, is immortalized in security monitoring recordings. Every transaction we make with plastic is recorded. It is not difficult at all to discover what, where and when we bought; even in our consumption, we are not anonymous. To facilitate road and border controls, drivers' licenses and other documents have been designed so that they can be checked at a distance thanks to radio frequency identifiers (RFID), while chips - which have no protection against reading - are designed to monitor goods, thus facilitating surveillance and collecting information about people who carry such goods.[3]
