With the way things are going, everything we do, say and hear will be stored in electromagnetic mediums, or in the wavefunctions of electrions should quantum computing advance sufficiently.

Sweden is already transitioning to an electronic information society.

I am not a Christian, but I can see how the total omniscience society can be considered the mark of the beast.

They feel that they need to track you by whatever means. Very devious-and dangerous.

Myself, I could give a fuck less if the government is tracking what I buy. They'll see my spending habits haven't changed much over the years - gas, guns and ammo.
I pay for my shit with a debit card, buy most of my ammo online and have it delivered to my front door. Where it goes after that is my business.

More records on citizen's activities means more well paid, big pension "Government employees" to troll through them.

Sounds like someone's building an empire to me.
