Swallowing camels

On the radio news the other day, people getting in a froth about the civil liberties implications of using RFID chips to replace bar-codes; they worry about post-sale tracking and marketing. But that's just corporations, who are only after your money - and failing buying a dedicated RFID-finder/zapper, microwaving should be OK for the purpose on most garments.

Meanwhile, too many people (and much of this authoritarian government) seem to think that mandatory ID cards are a good thing - and unlike corporations, a government has a veto over life and liberty.
