The ultimate identity theft

Posted in ID Cards by ukliberty on March 10, 2008

Professor Ian Angell writing in The Times:

In effect, your identity won’t reside in the living flesh and blood of you, but in the database. You will be separated from your identity; you will no longer own it. All your property and money will de facto belong to the database entry. You only have access to your property with the permission of the database. Paradoxically, you only agreed to register to protect yourself from “identity theft”, and instead you find yourself victim of the ultimate identity theft – the total loss of control over your identity.
