Exactly this!

Technician, we want you to build a component

For each of our workers, to be with them always,

At all time watch closely, so we can keep track of

Their actions, their interests, their morals, their time out.

Some musak to maim them, some fear to contain them.

Policy will judge them, brute forces degrade them.

Practical behaviour, the cleanser, the saviour.

A private vocation has no sense of nation.

The maintenance of power can be so fulfilling,

Just as long as all the slaves are willing.

- Twelfth Night, We Are Sane, 1982
