It is certainly subject matter everyone should be familiar with.

How people act on this information and the knowledge of the rise and dominance of surveillance capitalism is, well.. it is "up to each individual and organization".

The current issue is that surveillance capitalism has become so profitable, that most information-based tech companies depend of surveillance capitalism to survive in a very competitive market place.

That's the problem.... all the "huge, great, free services" people (and businesses) are dependent on (the ones which are very profitable, at least) have built their business model on surveillance capitalism.

It's not so complex really. It is simply the new, dominate form of capitalism in the age of social-media. However, the question becomes "what are we, the people, going to do about it?"

Yet another proof that labour is not profitable, only the capital is, and so workers will get poorer and the rich richer....
It can't go forever and soon or later the question of wealth redistribution will be crucial...

Yes, Zuboff mentions those ideas in her book, especially when she reviews the historical context various social-economic models.

Actually, that quote, originally, was by Benjamin Franklin (not Churchill):

Quote:
Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

How The World Butchered Benjamin Franklin’s Quote On Liberty Vs. Security – TechCrunch

Quote:
According to Wittes, the words appear in a letter widely presumed to be written by Franklin in 1755 on behalf of the Pennsylvania Assembly to the colonial governor. “The letter was a salvo in a power struggle between the governor and the assembly over funding for security on the frontier, one in which the assembly wished to tax the lands of the Penn family,”¯ he explains.
