Is a surveillance state necessarily a bad thing?

Here is the hypothetical, we discover very powerful technology like zero point energy, faster than light travel, anti-matter weapons, artificial super intelligence and/or black goo that has the potential to benefit everyone, but the risk that an individual or small group of people could accidentally or intentionally use it to end all life as we know it. Wouldn't a chip in everyone's ass be statistically necessary for mankind's survival, or is there a more optimal solution?
