Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Surveillance will always be more expensive than non-surveillance. At least until we have AI.

Speaking of, when we do get AI, attention will become plentiful and most of the world will go nuts for lack of things to do. Switching to an economy of purpose (4th) would be an immense shock if the old economy of labour (2nd) hasn't already dissolved.

I think the technology you're looking for is the social concept of privacy so powerful in Germany and the Nordic countries. Think of Piratbyran and Piratpartiet.
