Anybody noticed any change in the way people still drive - and talk on cellphone? At first they did it when they thought nobody would name and shame them. Now it's as open as if no law was passed. In Auckland it's a bit like expecting motorists to carpool… Carpool? What's that?
Charlie Skelton in The Guardian on, among other things, ID cards:
'I can tell you this from personal experience: the onus upon the individual to carry with them some external proof of their identity is transformative of his or her status as a human being. The identity card turns you from a free citizen into a suspect. It is a spanner with which to beat the individual around the head. It is the end of everything. And how much easier to put all that information inside a microchip so you don't have to carry around that pesky card all the time. How much more efficient!’
‘Listen. I don't care if you don't love liberty. For the love of yourself: fight identity cards. Don't let them happen. STOP IDENTITY CARDS. Stop identity cards. And while you're about it: stop identity cards'. (http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/blog/2009/may/19/bilderberg-skelton-greece)
