Fascinating subject, identity, but it should never be trusted to politicians.

Example. Via BoingBoing, the US have passed a bill for a national identity card, which will serve as a prereq for trains, planes, automobiles, and for getting into federal buildings. That's disgusting, and Benjamin Franklin is surely spinning in his grave (to be fair, a small part of that might stem from possible misquotation):

Anyone who sacrifices liberty for security deserves neither.

Just another sign that the "sweet land of liberty" is going to hell in a handbasket.
