Well, in Star Trek, the ships computer sees all, hears all, records all.
But it is not a problem because there isn't anyone playing thought police or fining people for chewing gum.
It is the Orwellian State that is the problem, not the monitoring.
In fact, the monitoring is almost inevitable, and is beneficial in many ways.
It is the moral busy-bodies and the power-hungry that need to be kept away from using the system to terrorize people and harass people's lives.
