Getting Closer To A National ID System
from the good-or-bad? dept
I never posted the original stories about Ellison or McNealy, and their support for a national ID system, because I hadn’t realized that anyone would take them seriously. Silly me. People are taking them very seriously, and it appears that a national ID system is perhaps closer than we think. I see the argument for both sides, but the thing that scares me most is that I’m not sure how anyone is going to be able to keep this database secure and keep the information it contains private.

I already have a passport.
What good will it do.
The Hijackers of the planes all had valid ID. They had valid Visas to be in the US. Some had lived and worked there for years.
It would not have stopped the hijackers, it would not have stopped Timothy McVeigh.
The ID card will say who they are, not what they are…
