Everybody already has a cell phone.

Accordingly, most people are already in the state where their "movements and activities are monitored at all times". So, do these people realize they're being monitored? Do they accept it? Is it an ok tradeoff for these modern conveniences? As far as I can tell, the vast majority of people are either oblivious or ok with it. If they're oblivious, maybe some in-your-face monitoring might prompt some needed discussion. If they're ok with it, then cries of "but this is raising kids to accept it!" seem a bit dubious to me.

There is truly little privacy for those who lead typical lives in modern developed nations. Cell phones are just one of many ways to track people nowadays.
