Citizens? Do you think we are still being citizens? Nation means anything anymore? Would it be possible that the same governments that spy on us have decide that we are not longer citizens but consumers? Consumers of good, marketing, politics even consumers of our own lives on twitter and facebook and instagram?
Are we in an era where the online technological world has overcome the offline world?...where we used to be citizens...and no consumers?
