The best example of this concept is the social media companies doing the government's bidding in clearing the public space of bad-think.  But here's another example of what's coming faster than you can imagine.  Bank of America has allegedly combed through the purchase records of its customers in search of anyone who used the card in the vicinity of Washington DC during the Epiphany Uprising.  They then handed that information over to the FBI for follow-up.  

But Trump and his mean tweets!!  Well, he's off the stage now and the underlying causes that brought him to office are not going away.  In fact, our rulers are going to turn the screws even tighter.  It was only months ago that normal people looked at China's social credit scheme and thanked our lucky stars that we didn't have a comparable lack of privacy.  The current administration is going to change that so fast your head is going to spin.  And when the next Patriot Act comes along, directed at domestic terrorism -- read: white men who won't grab their ankles -- every last corporation will lend its support to its enforcement.
