Ok, uh, I'm one of those people who would end up in jail, for refusing to cooperate with this law. Why? Because, in my opinion, if I haven't done
anything wrong, then it is none of the police's business who I am!!
The whole point of living in a free society, is that I have the right to go about my business freely. If I haven't broken any laws, then I should be
allowed to do so anonymously, if I so choose.
People have been so seduced by the argument that if you've done nothing wrong then you should have no objection to providing your info, having your
home/person/bags searched, or having your biometric info put in an international database.
This way of doing things is completely reversed from the ways a free nation operates.
It should be the case that if a person has done nothing wrong, they have the right to be "free from unreasonable search and seizures". The
burden of proof of wrongdoing is supposed to rest on the police, prosecutors, and judges, in order to prevent them from becoming tyrants and
Go back through history and read what has been said about governments who rattle the sabres of war and infringe on people's freedoms under the
auspices of protecting them. It never ends well for the people.
Why in the hell is it so hard for people to learn from the mistakes of the past?? I just don't get how some people are so oblivious to things that
are seemingly so obvious!!
