Government control expands. How long until they implant chips in citizens, to shut them down at will?
How about an app that tracks who's tracking you, then mails thousands of junk e-mails to every officer in the companies tracking you.
Whew! I was worried.
This, too, is caused by Global Whatevering.
Silly. Every major country has multiple agencies that conduct Internet espionage. Canada, for example.
The end of Moore's law is a concern only if it is assumed that transistors will be used indefinitely.
We all get cancer many times in our lives, but our immune system normally eliminates it without our awareness of the close call. The problem with most cancers is that they are not cause by something present, a mutagenic virus, for example. Instead they result from something absent, a healthy, raring-to-go immune system. Therefore the focus should be on boosting the immune system.
In a word, seignorage, the profit made by a government by issuing currency, esp. the difference between the face value of coins and their production costs. No government would sacrifice that.

Must I remind yet again? The largest structure in the universe is the universe, because it's a subset of itself. No more largest structure pronouncements, please. The matter is settled. Also sprach Zarathustra.

Rather than hurting the American economy, it has helped, by keeping tabs on the technologies and business plans of foreign competitors. What do you think industrial spying is?

One-third of prisoners in federal prisons are illegal aliens, mostly from Mexico. To fix the prisons, first secure the border.
The punishment is not the imprisonment, because most hackers spend their waking hours confined to a room, cut off from physical contact with other humans. The punishment is isolation from the Internet, which leaves hackers with nothing to do but ponder their sorry, childish selves. That is what hackers truly and deeply fear.
Scientists quantify the universe, so hither, thither, and yon, all they see is computations.
