Second, is the countertintelligence equivalent preemptive war, discerning alienated but highly capable and dangerously positioned potential super empowered individuals before they become active and then taking some kind of action. This is a scenario rife with morally and constitutionally troublesome possibilities but the fact that the technology exists ( or soon shall) to do that kind of meta-data mining and pattern recognition means that it is going to be done – and not only by governments.

Our operative question is going to be how shall it be used and for what end ?

UPDATE:

Dave at the Glittering Eye has Napoleonic commentary on super empowered individuals
