Controversial new ID cards coming in 2010


The German Interior Ministry confirmed on Monday that new identification cards containing radio-frequency (RFID) chips will be introduced starting November 1, 2010 - but some data protection experts are critical of the decision.

Is this upgrading to a more convenient method, or breeching heavily into an individuals privacy?

Whats your thoughts or concerns on this issue?

sounds like the same thing over here in the states. New ids have GPS in them to "help find missing ppl"

Ever since the fall of Hitler, Germany has been ruled by puppet governments of the New World Order. And they are doing a good job. Ban all controversial discussion as "thought crime", and push RFID on the population.

What is the justification for the chip? (please don't say, if you've nothing to hide, you've nothing to fear).
I read the comments on the article. One person said we are already tracked by our GPS mobile phones anyway.
I know it is unbelievable to those who can't live their lives without being 'connected' 24/7, but not everyone has a mobile - let alone a GPS one.
Nor do I think the argument that we are already on so many databases is justification. It is one more step in the wrong direction. A year on it will be another step then another... How long before we are all individually chipped and immediately traceable like so many cattle?
The Orwellian nightmare is very close. - if not already here.

With any luck people will keep there new cards in a farady type device to stop it being picked up (if that would work) or start finding and marking the readers like what people do with unsecure wireless networks

germany has always had id cards, or at least east germany has .
i lived in dresden for five years and they use them like a passport.
but if like the post says , that they will have a tracking device in them , then i find that a little disturbing .
