Discussion regarding electronic IDs

Whoa. Seriously? What’s next chips in your wrist or a fractal tattoo for everyone? I’d be looking to leave that country asap, not ways to accommodate it.

That’s the saddest news I’ve heard in a very long time. Get out while you can.

Facial recognition, Real ID, DNIe, etc. etc. is coming everywhere (Asia, Europe, the U.S.) in time.

Oh well in that case, obviously I would just roll over and support it. LOL

Point is, where are suggesting a person move to?
I’ve lived and worked in Asia, China, South America, Europe, the U.S. & Middle East, and fingerprinting, facial recognition, etc. is being implemented in most those regions, countries.
I flew into JFK in NY recently and got out my global traveler ID to go through Customs and was directed to look in the camera and a second later all my info appeared on the screen and was cleared to go through.
In the U.S. you will not be able to fly in the near future unless you have Real ID.


My US passport or ID doesn’t require a computer I manage to use it. I’m not sure you understand how those things work. . . I mean with the current folks in office, you don’t need anything but sneakers to walk in with.

Admittedly, you’re very right though - the people currently in power are trying desperately to turn the US into the same left wasteland as everywhere else unfortunately.

Most people are letting it happen under your same premise of “there’s no where left to go.”

With that mindset, someday you’ll must certainly be right. Doing nothing is still a choice.

And since there’s no way to talk about all of this without getting overtly and way political, I’m gonna leave this thread alone and just say good luck, I’m sorry you have to deal with the nonsense, and I’d get out as fast as I possibly could.

The new Labour Government in :uk: has ruled out ID cards - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/articles/c87rgj4e0rzo

You’re very welcome to join us here @fbodymechanic :wink:


Thanks. I’ll stay on my side of the pond I think.

Oh please. Getting political about it is nonsense as it’s happening everywhere under every regime/administration. And yeah, I have some idea “how things work” having lived and worked in 9 different countries.

I’m gonna leave this thread

Probably a good idea.

Everyone will have electronic ID soon in Europe. I don’t see why it is necessarily bad if you already have to have ID. It’s just harder to make fake IDs.

Thanks new guy. I appreciate your suggestions.
Welcome to Endeavour. No need to chime in and try to have the last word just to have one​:wink: it doesn’t look good baiting people into arguments. It’s supposed to be a welcoming community.

I’d probably leave that part out of I were me. Your call obviously though.


Or better still, get a one-way ticket to Rwanda :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: :sweat_smile:

Thanks for trolling and baiting :wink:. You could have just not tagged me. That’s generally how forums work. You tag people for them to reply.


That has been scrapped by the new :uk: government - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/articles/cz9dn8erg3zo

Yes. I know. But nobody knows for how long :sweat_smile:

Given how much it cost and that :uk: is nearly broke, I’m confident it will be a long time.

Leave it mate, it’s not worth it.


Yep, the future is coming. Sooner than later, physical currency will be a thing of the past, no need for banks, no more analog anything, everything digitalized, edible insects, lab grown meat, plant based meats, communal housing, etc. , etc. :upside_down_face:

Wow that’s a big stretch, plant based “meats” are great, insects are basically shrimp. Tell me what’s actually wrong with electronic ID? Other than it’s harder to fake them? Unless it has some chip that responds to radio.

I don’t know anything about them. What did you get from my post that made you think I disliked them?
