"RockMan, if you have nothing to hide why worry about it? Oh so yo're gonna be in the stoneage I guess? There is too much data to sift through anyway, so even if it was recording no one would hear it! You're not important enough for anyone to bother bugging you." - Brother

Thanks Hollywood! People still think survelliance is a cold war era secretary from a mysterious alphabet agency listening in on your calls. Trying to explain datamining to NPC's is a nightmare. Even third worlders with $400 income a year are very valuable to them as they're all contributing to data trends that give you levers of control.

No, someone isn't personally listening through your Alexa about whatever dumb topic you're discussing but it is all being scooped up and filtered to generate effective advertising campaigns so income can be made to plaster WaPo articles all over snapchat news to tens of millions of kids around the country.

It’s basically The Patriots from Metal Gear, only the war economy hasn’t started yet and we don’t have super cyborgs and thermonuclear mechs. So, a hundred times more boring while being equally insidious
