Assume some dystopian future where everything we do and think is recorded (e.g. via brain implants) and not only that, but everything is viewable by anyone in the world. Assume that this recording happens for every human in the world.
How would the world change? From the mundane (“does she love me?”) to more serious (the justice system, corporate espionage) to even more serious (intra-national espionage, war)
How would the following change
[li]Dating[/li][li]Marrying[/li][li]Cheating on your spouse/boyfriend/girlfriend[/li][li]The justice system (we will know who stole what and who killed whom)[/li][li]Sports (we will know the strategies put together by opposing teams)[/li][li]Card games (things like bluffing in poker may or may not be possible, depending on whether the data is viewable in real time by the other players, or is only viewable afterwards)[/li][li]Work[/li][li]The stock market (no more “insider information”)[/li][li]The economy[/li][li]Diplomacy[/li][li]Espionage[/li][li]Wars[/li][/ul]
Has this scenario been covered by any Sci-Fi books?
I’d love to hear what you guys think society would look like. Could society even function if this was the case? Would we all be miserable or happier than now?
