[ExI] Surveillance, crime, and revolutions

The human animal is not well suited to the currently interacting
numbers of people. We have partly compensated by studying our
accessible history and drawing conclusions as to what kind of leader
behavior is tolerable.

Anyway, technology is changing lots of things.  There are so many
cameras around that we invented a sort of time machine.

An increasing number of crimes are solved with security cameras.

Unfortunately, since the police are usually under the control of the
political section of the government, this is also going to make
organizing a rebellion harder. At least the government could trace
anyone who met with the rebellion leaders (meme spreaders).

Given the nature of genes (and the survival machines genes build) is
it possible to predict future developments at the political level due
to a misty time machine?
