Technology as it develops today holds out tremendous hope... But it is also intrusive, domineering and an instrument of polarization. Never in human history has technical progress given so many resources to a few private players - the GAFA or their Chinese counterparts, the BATX. They have been able to replace politics by imposing a new societal model, which is now threatening our democracies. Facing with the digital and financial giants, a diffuse and plural resistance is developing. The solution will not only come from the States. Citizens, startups, hackers, NGOs are acting collectively and individually to resist. They refuse to let their lives, their thoughts, their philosophical choices be driven by some anonymous big data.
