Innovation, risk taking, creativity, motivation, drive, participation, cooperation, interest, social cohesion, quality, focus, energy, stamina, determination and overall well being, all suffer from mass surveillance: in nations, societies, organizations, corporations, businesses, schools as well as in families.
In essence: people stop caring when constantly monitored by “Big Brother”.
Truly great social organizations, regardless of size, are built upon trust, respect, cohesion, cooperation and transparency. Limitless surveillance acts like cancer to this organism.
We’ll soon end up as a bunch of grey amoebas in a grey and frightened world unless we change direction.
