Here’s an excerpt from global-warming alarmist Elizabeth Moon where she tells BBC Radio what she’d do if she were in charge:
If I were empress of the Universe I would insist on every individual having a unique ID permanently attached – a barcode if you will; an implanted chip to provide an easy, fast inexpensive way to identify individuals.
It would be imprinted on everyone at birth. Point the scanner at someone and there it is.
Anonymity would be impossible as would mistaken identity making it easier to place responsibility accurately, not only in war but also in non-combat situations far from the war.
More here from Haunting the Library on the environmentalist fetish of being able to track and regulate personal behavior for the supposed greater good.
