In the name of security ...

Some of the things that the US and UK (and probably others) are doing in the name of security have implications going far beyond those that anyone can imagine today. If things keep going at this rate, I wish the lives of those guys asking for such schemes in the name of security are screwed beyond their wildest imaginations.

Reminds me of movie theater plots regarding identity theft and crisis. Woe befall these morons who think security will be achieved just by collecting every possible part of the human DNA. Imagine the kind of abuse it can be put to if it falls under wrong hands. Why don't these guys just get it ?!!!

Well, this certainly has been one of the worst rant I ever posted on this blog ! Sorry to subject you to this !

Most recent irritant source of this nasty rant - Don't like ID cards? Hand over your passport

Snippet:
...
People will be required to give fingerprints, biometric details such as a facial scan and a wealth of personal details - including second homes, driving licence and insurance numbers.

All will be stored on a giant ID cards Register, which can be accessed by accredited Whitehall departments, banks and businesses.
