Another Map

This one courtesy of The Andrew Sullivan blog at the Atlantic. It details societies that monitor their citizens extensively. So that's where my blog's other reader comes from.

In any event, this map is quite a scary one. Imagine if the British Government's crazy scheme to create a compulsory ID card and hand all the data to the Capita Company were to really come about. This is the sort of poll-tax level stupid idea that can destroy a government in a country like this one for generations.

At least the Liberal Democrat's new leader is promising to go to jail rather than sign up for this scheme. I am neither a member of the Lib Dems nor a supporter, but he deserves plaudits for this stand.
