Well now. Here’s something interesting.
Not only is the Orwellian title attention-grabbing in its own right (and absurd, since experience hath shewn that governments by their nature do the opposite of “save lives.”), but just read this perversity and see if you don’t get cold chills. Just think about the ramifications – our corrupt, foolish and selfish politicians collecting and owning all DNA data from everybody born in the USA:
- Our politicians’ record with data security (from both hacking and plain old screwups) is just awful. Mistakes will be made. Huge ones. The United Kingdom, our apparent role model, already screwed up with DNA samples, among other things.
- You think “pre-existing condition” exclusions are bad now!
- What little good could come out of such a thing is certainly outweighed by sci-fi mischief and Keystone Cops incompetence.
Oh, but it sounds so well-intended and helpful, doesn’t it? What’s the history of that as applied to politicians?
Anyway, it’s scheduled for debate in the House of Representatives. Nearly all reps will vote on this without having read a word of it. They may tell a 20-something legislative aid to read it for them, but most of those starry-eyed future congresscritters haven’t lived long enough to get through a history book and they’ve never heard about such a thing as constitutional limitation of powers.
It’s up to you to tell your reps what’s what and just who they work for. Brave New World? It’s still your choice.
