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.

It is easy to see how belief in an all-seeing god can be a powerful incentive to moral behaviour, and so it could strengthen the society. There is also a general feeling that, with the breakdown in religious belief, today’s society could be becoming less moral.

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?
