United States
I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

You are reporting the following comment to the PledgeBank team:

Reading recent comments, I feel the need to dissociate myself from the conspiracy theories being put forward about a "new nazi state" or "the United Nation's avowed intent to eliminate 4 out of every 5 human beings". This is the kind of thing that lets the supporters of the ID card scheme brand their opponents as hysterical scaremongers.

My opposition to the proposals is based on the real ethical and practical problems of the scheme itself: the invasion of privacy; the reliance on unreliable technology; the inevitable misuse of data; the prospect of inconvenience, disenfranchisement and worse for law-abiding citizens; the enormous waste of money; and the negative shift in the relationship between the individual and the state.
Eleanor Crawford, 15 years ago.
