I have to agree, but the way things keep going, you won’t be able to get anything without it. Imagine going to the DMV and needing it - no license, no registration, no insurance because you refuse to carry one and accept the terms (a perfectly legitimate stance IMO), therefore no ability to drive legally. Perhaps you’d need it to get gas as well - ergo no ability to drive at all. Need it for all your utilities and to get groceries, etc... pretty darned tough to survive (but not impossible). Cloistered minorities easily plucked off... At that point I think I’d rather have a forged ID card than none at all to use in limited situations and to throw the gov’t off if it came down to it.
I’m delving into tin foil hat area already, but you get my drift... things could get a lot worse before they get better.
Look...I have a driving licence, I have a passport (actually its expired but I can renew it) I have bank cards and statements. I’m on the electoral register. I can prove who I am. Why do I need another id card? If its forgeable (and anything that man can make man can duplicate) what possible benefit does it have for counter-terrorist operations?
Its a total and complete boondoggle of no value and massive expense.
