♦ Description : “1984 Orwell spoke of a violent dictatorship. The world of Big Datas on the horizon of the half of this century will be that of a hegemony at once sweet and totalitarian. The end of Greek thought is on the march and with it an era of humanity is soon over. We call them Big Datas. Google, Apple, Facebook or Amazon, these digital giants, who aspire through the Internet, smartphones and connected objects, billions of data about our lives.
Behind this espionage, whose magnitude is measured every day, we discover that there is a secret pact sealed by the Big Datas with the most powerful intelligence apparatus on the planet. This mating between US agencies and digital conglomerates, is giving birth to a new kind of entity. A mutant power, seeded by globalization, which aims neither more nor less to reformat Humanity.
The takeover of our lives takes place in favor of a new world oligarchy. For Big Data, democracy is obsolete, as are its universal values. It’s a new dictatorship that threatens us. A Big Mother even more terrifying than Big Brother. If we leave we will be tomorrow “naked men”, without memory, programmed, under surveillance. It’s time to act.
