July 25, 2010: White House Preparing National Online ID Plan, www.informationweek.com
“…The online authentication and identity management system would be targeted at the transactional level — for example, when someone logs into their banking website or completes an online e-commerce purchase.”
“Making such a system effective, however, will require creating an “identity ecosystem,” backed by extensive public/private cooperation, said White House cybersecurity coordinator Howard Schmidt…”
Article mentions “National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace” and “Cyberspace Policy Review”.
So if this goes through, you will need government permission – government-issued ID – in order to make transactions on the Internet. So for those who are economically dependent on the Internet for their survival, guess what! Just like people who need their car to survive economically, we all need a license from the government. So everyone better behave or else! These are the additional choke chains of our future, one chain added upon another, endlessly.
