It is only a matter of time before this is going on almost
everywhere. It seems today that most of our government tracked
actions are recorded … but in many different and separate
databases. This appears to be an effort for the Dutch citizens to

sociological benefits. Yes … I know that many people are
cringing at this. To me it only makes sense that it’s going ot
occur … it’s inevitable.

Citizens Service Number and will have an electronic dossier opened in a
central database. This will allow Dutch authorities to track each
citizen from cradle to grave. [Wired News]
