Sur­veil­lance Cap­i­tal­ism is a glob­al archi­tec­ture of behav­ior mod­i­fi­ca­tion which pos­es pro­found threats to soci­ety. It was invent­ed at Google, dupli­cat­ed at Face­book, and has moved almost seam­less­ly into vir­tu­al­ly every eco­nom­ic sec­tor. Vast wealth is accu­mu­lat­ed in an omi­nous new eco­nom­ic order where pre­dic­tions of our behav­ior are bought and sold. Sur­veil­lance Cap­i­tal­ism has omi­nous con­se­quences for democ­ra­cy and human­i­ty in the 21st cen­tu­ry. It is based on extreme inequal­i­ties of knowl­edge and pow­er. It claims human expe­ri­ence as a free source of raw mate­r­i­al and chal­lenges our auton­o­my and social sol­i­dar­i­ty. Our minds are being mined and har­vest­ed for data and are being fun­da­men­tal­ly changed in the process. Sur­veil­lance Cap­i­tal­ism is a busi­ness mod­el that Shoshana Zuboff says seeks growth by cat­a­logu­ing our every move, emo­tion, utter­ance and desire.”
