This is not a challenge

From Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association, Forget Fingerprints, Officials Can Track You All Kinds of Ways:

Another important step in the future of biometric identification is storing information in one portal wherein multiple government agencies will trust the credentials, said John Boyd, director, defense biometrics and forensics, U.S. Defense Department. The challenge remains to carry out the many efforts to identify people effectively but still protect privacy.

That’s quite a challenge. In my book as soon as the government has that type of information the worst of all possible offenders has the information you least want them to have.

It’s a lot like the “challenge” of finding a way such that the person that wants you and your family dead and as well as you and your family both get what you want.

This is not a challenge. This is a time to tell them to leave you alone and then back it up with force if needed.

  1. It’s as much a part of the over-all psychological war as anything else. That which intimidates you owns you, and government tracking of your every move and communication can intimidate almost everyone. Whether it’s as good as some people want us to think or it isn’t, the mere knowledge of the IDEA or POSSIBILITY of extensive government surveillance will have the desired effect. Just put up that camera, for example, it doesn’t even have to work, and it’ll do its job on most people. Its mere presence says, “I’m in charge and you’re not. You will go along to get along OR ELSE…”

  2. Blackphone looks more and more tempting. It’s not as expensive as it looks (since it’s not subsidized so you’re paying for the phone up front rather than as an add-on to your phone bill).
