There has been a spate of news stories about recent research into the relationship between the growing size and complexity of human societies, and the rise of all-seeing vengeful gods. See https://www.livescience.com/65039-pun... for example.

In contrast, I quote from an Economist review of the “The Age of Surveillance Capitalism” and recent stories about the power of AI in surveillance. Where might this be taking us?
