The question is, what do we do to inhibit it?
Personally, you can opt out.
As a group, I'd say we're 'effed'.
If you want to opt out, I'd say pitch the iPhones, Droids, iPods, iPads, gaming consoles, cable/satellite boxes.... IOW all the stuff we just 'have' to have.
If enough people pitch them, they'll be forced to install the technology in our refrigerators and stoves.

No, I wasn't kidding.
I should have said that they will be forced to put them on the 'low end' household appliances that I can afford.

Come on heff....
Why is it everyone is out to hurt you? In the future our shared experiances are going to make compassion and empathy unavoidable.
There wont be any need to abuse your fellow man heff. There wont be any reason to.....
Humanity needs a mom, and we're gonna build her together.
Jokes aside, if Mitt Romney would have one, this thread would still be here, worded identically. These issues, I am afraid, are much more complex than the two party illusion.
This week, Microsoft filed a patent for tracking systems that detect a user’s emotions to match online advertisements to moods.
The technology works by capturing facial expressions in video conversations and Facebook status updates. Users’ moods are further assessed by speech patterns, web browsing history and content searches, along with emails and instant messages.
Advertisers are matched people who are either “positive, happy, confused, neutral, negative, angry or sad,” according to the patent.
“Big Data is beginning to affect every aspect of our existence,” said Smolan. “Everyone carrying a smartphone has become a human sensor. Our increasing ability to sense and measure the world in real time is something our planet has never seen before. From curing diseases to conserving precious resources such as water and energy, Big Data may be the exact toolset we need to address many of the most pressing issues of our time.”
“Through Big Data, we can go beyond just isolating largely circulated messages and their authors. We can even find out how influential a person is in social media to show how they are driving real-time conversations. The compilation of Big Data gives us the power to identify the key influencers in any industry,” said Deb Roy, co-founder and chairman of Bluefin Labs. “Big Data is changing our world and, for the first time in history, we have the ability to use data on our own to change the world for the better. By connecting the skills of the data science community with the causes and vision of the social sector, we can go beyond just using data to make better decisions about what kind of movies we want to see or what restaurants we want to go to, and instead use data to make better decisions about what kind of a world we want to see,” commented Jake Porway, executive director of DataKind.
"they use wealth and position to try and seize our rights."
"Over the generations they've chipped away at those rights."
This is a weakness that they have been aware of and have sought to exploit since the very beginning.
On this field the tactical nuke is media. In this regard, they are the superpowers, because they control the nukes.
But they persist. they always persist. Enough is never enough. No amount of wealth or power can sate whatever drives these men... these little tin gods who occupy high offices and make sacrifices to their own egos for reasons I cannot even begin to understand.
.. .. .. they expend vast fortunes and lifetimes, one after another, seeking to take away what little the masses have. I guess, for some, having is not enough. It must be the thought of making sure others do not have that drives them.
In war, this love we have for these things could be called a situational opportunity - put politely. In blunt terms. It's an unguarded and open flank. And they know this.
So many of us make statements like "The day they come to take my rights and infringe upon my privacies, will be the day I meet them, on my porch, with my rifle in hand."
The government doesn't want to put you in a camp, where they'll have to feed and clothe you. they've already GOT YOU in a camp where you feed, clothe, and guard yourself. Not only that - but you also voluntarily work and will happily inform on all of the other inmates.
