I will need to compare as you say.  I also need to read a bit more about
Marx.  My impression is that his observations of capitalism have proven to
be astute but that his theory of value, his predictions of collapse, and
his proposed solutions are of a much lower standard.

The essays will be first-draft pieces of progress: they'll state the thesis
and arguments but with only incidental references to supporting material.

This was developed in "Democracy and Cyberspace", see:

It is not just keystrokes that will be monitorable, but purchases,
whereabouts, tastes, patterns of communication, people corresponded with,
etc.  Neural-net filters can be used to reduce the manpower needed for
monitoring by humans.  Already a huge complex is being built in Washington
DC, armed with super-computers, to facilitate this process.  The bugaboo of
"Net Warfare" is being promulgated as an excuse, just as "War on drugs and
terrorism" is being used to to eliminate the Bill of Rights.
