The End of Man?
"It must be noted as a most fortunate circumstance that in the age of dictatorships, minitotal [smartwatch] had not yet been invented. A despot could have practed unspeakable oppression. But as minitotal was introduced in the course of the most perfect democracy ever evolved, no such risk existed" - Olof Johannesson, The End of Man? (1968)
