"The belief that privacy is private" is a delusion, "The Age of Surveillance Capitalism" author Shoshana Zuboff writes in an op-ed for The New York Times. "Surveillance capitalism" has driven a societal transformation over the last two decades. "Surveillance capitalists want your home and what you say and do within its walls," Zuboff writes. "They want your car, your medical conditions, and the shows you stream; your location as well as all the streets and buildings in your path and all the behavior of all the people in your city. They want your voice and what you eat and what you buy; your children’s play time and their schooling; your brain waves and your bloodstream. Nothing is exempt."
