I guess it's time for another post about statism, or the rise thereof for that matter.
At the current rate, here is the future of America, as seen in Britain:
Two months ago Richard Thomas, the Information Commissioner, warned that Britain was "waking up to a surveillance society that is already all around us". But ministers dismiss such fears and are pressing ahead with the world's most ambitious identity scheme, as well as a rapid expansion of the DNA database. Details of all children will be held in a single register to be launched next year, medical records are being transferred to a central NHS database and plans are being examined to track motorists' movements by satellite.I realize terrorism is a serious threat, moreso in Britain it seems. And the top priority of the state is to provide security for its people, but there are good ways of achieving that, and there are wrong ways of achieving that.
Who would have thought technology would render a Gestapo obsolete?
