How much will identity cards cost? (Guardian)
Identity cards are about one thing only, control. The government wants to control you, to tag you with Oyster cards and car tracking, to watch you on surveillance cameras, and to decide your entitlements and ultimately whether you live or die.
They are already persecuting you, revoking your ancient rights, selling you out to big business. But you are wild, and you should be free. They want to tame you. Don't lose your birthright as a free creature of your own land. Resist those who would corral and enslave you. Do not become like sheep and cattle.
