I like Doug’s pragmatic tech approach for this year and in the end it fits with the bleak pieces above; this is beyond individual choices, we need governments to step in.

What I do accept, though, is that Vertesi’s findings show that ‘exit democracy’ isn’t really an option here, so the world of technology isn’t really democratic. My takeaway from all this, and the reason for my pragmatic approach this year, is that it’s up to governments to do something about all this.
