Dystopian human future

Worker Productivity Score is the latest sinister technological term I find horrifying and outrageous.
Companies like Amazon can and do monitor and control every aspect of their employees’ behaviour and performance every minute.
Employees are as tightly managed as caged chickens in an agribusiness egg factory.
It is part of the economic model that prizes productivity over everything else. Ant hills and bee hives are their concept of the model for the future of humanity. Cram as many people as possible into as small a space (a sphere) as possible and program them to be as ergonomically, repetitively and minimally mobile as possible.
We’ll become human algorithms, super efficient and productive but as mindless and soulless as parking meters.
Next, of course, will be sedatives to dull employee minds to prevent suicidal depression and, voila, here we are in Orwell’s
“1984,” all kept docile with Aldous Huxley’s, “Brave New World” Soma.
