“Should we be concerned?” Got nothing to hide then you’re good. As long as this doesn’t turn into an obvious 1984 scenario and keeps on focusing on domestic terrorists then I’m all for big brother

Everyone's all for big brother until they decide you're on their list for whatever reason.

Highly recommend the book Little Brother by Cory Doctorow.

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

—Martin Niemöller

Who is in charge and what they consider good/evil can change very quickly, so be careful what powers you want to give to the state.

the problem is that if a AI decides that humanity need more intelligence, empathy or even creativity you would simply be culled.
