The Gig Society explores the various ways in which modern technology impacts society. The technology of today, from artificial intelligence to social media to Internet service providers, are creating an economy that funnels power to the ruling class and fosters a culture of division and apathy. These changes represent an erosion of freedom, privacy, and individuality. It's on us, the people of the America and our representative government, to recognize and fight back against that erosion--through regulation and our own cultural movements alike. The Gig Society goes through a catalog of threats posed by modern technology and presents necessary solutions for them. It's also a plea for American unity against those threats, because if we don't find it in ourselves and each other to fight back, we will see institutions collapse and our shared values slip away from us for good.
