The world is actually a lot more boring than you give it credit for. People, as with electrons, seek the lowest energy state. People generally are far too lazy to really care full time about monitoring and controlling you. No doubt some of this goes on, but people also like to relax and enjoy a fine meal. Can't be world-dominating all the time. Need a break now and again. No doubt governments try to control people, but this process is not perfect. The world is far too messy and complicated, and humans lazy and selfish, for there to be the level of conspiratorial organization that wacky people imagine. Robots could do it, but not humans. You should be more concerned about killer robots.
