Another factor, is the rise of AI. Not only will AI make surveillance more effective and ubiquitous, it will also reduce the involvement of humans as workers. In the intro to the text, the author mentions sabotage as effective due to the state's weakness which is that:

this system require(s) people’s labor power to function, but it also requires us to produce and maintain its physical infrastructure, enforce its laws, cooperate with and consent to its plans. Ultimately we allow it to exist.

But what if the system no longer required people's labor? Does that render sabotage completely ineffective?
