I don’t see this as mass surveillance though, just to clarify. In the same way there is mass surveillance on the web i.e. all internet traffic being sucked up and snooped upon at a population level.
i’d say this is more a case of people might lower their guard on targeted surveillance.
I agree we need to do the inversion on PtP though. As much as I’m attracted to many aspects of it, I fear that is might actually end up amplifying sensationalism and clickbait to the detriment of reasoned discourse.
