Le Pari de Pascal :

> L'argument tente de prouver qu'une personne rationnelle a tout intérêt à croire en Dieu, que Dieu existe ou non. En effet, si Dieu n’existe pas, le croyant et le non croyant ne perdent rien ou presque.

Le capitalisme de surveillance serait dès lors une forme de « Pari de Pascal » créé, vendu et entretenu par les marchands du Temple.
