Вы сообщаете о таком комментарии комманде проекта "Банк Обещаний":

If takeup of ID cards is high (via passport renews, say 80%), the government may make the card compulsory. Fair enough. However if it is then made compulsory to carry, a convenience option a few years from now would be to have it chipped into you (like a dog). With the public being told that it helps them as a convenience, its a small quick pin prick in the arm to insert, optional take up may (through similar to passport cooercion) become quite high - and very very difficult to live without - at this point you can't say no.

A long and unlikely paranoid scenario maybe, but this or a similar position I would never want to be in. Whilst I believe in democracy and captialism, there is a certain famous saying by a social activist, Martin Niemöller whose theme can hold true here:
First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.

This is why I am signing up today.
