The future is in the young, and they are so immersed in the system that there is no real division between their virtual world and the real world. They see no need to slow it down or to stop it.
Meanwhile politics is making flint spears for the tribes.
Because, none of this is really about random individuals that may find ways around it. Its about molding the general public, and the fringes are largely irrelevant to that (and have been).
Can we actually stop any of it? I honestly dont know.. I highly doubt it. So many are just wrapped up in either "all technology is bad" or "all technology is kewl." The former removes themselves from the conversation entirely, and the latter will support anything as long as its shiny and new with attractive packaging.
