First of all, I would like to wish my fellow debater, NephraTari, the best of luck.
A DNA database in every country would, on the surface, seem to be an excellent idea for tracking criminals and locating lost family members,
identifying dead bodies, etc. However, as with all things that start out as "good", the governments of the world would twist, mutiliate and
otherwise corrupt the system, and use it for "not-so-good" purposes, tracking an individual for no particular reason, violating more freedoms than
are already being violated, and knowing more than they need to know. The world governments already have too much control, without us granting them
more. The question to ask here is: "How much does one want the Government to know about the individual?"
