That's a good point. Of course, technology requires a power source and a grid to extend its reach and also, people voluntarily use the devices used to track them.

Then again, technology is not the end-all-and-be-all that's it's portrayed to be. A great example of that is the downfall of the derivatives market. Even with technology, giants like Citigroup were too unwieldy to manage. And as far as that goes, the amount of data technology can collect cannot be managed by humans. The CIA/NSA can collect trillions of bytes of data, but who is going to analyze it?
