I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

You are reporting the following comment to the PledgeBank team:

Nothing you do to your copy of the identity card will do anything to the Government's copy of the central database. That's the really scary bit: if the technology really works, then the Government will track your every move. They will still be able to do stuff like SELECT * FROM subjects WHERE height=1.8 AND skin='white' AND city='birmingham'; -- and they might even find something else on someone else as a bonus, while they were looking for you.

Just another card wouldn't be half so bad. It's the database aspect that makes things a million times worse.
