I lived in Denmark for 10 years. They have loads of data on a central database and everyone has an i.d card. I didn't experience any problems living with that sceme. It just meant that is was a little easier getting things done.

Denmark is a liberal and open society. By and large, their i.d cards aren't seen as a tool of an oppressor, but rather, a pragmatic tool for getting things done.

I haven't yet made up my mind about this topic, but I am in favour of a full and open debate. Under the 'bourgeois democracy' democracy is merely a spectator sport.
