Imagine an electronic I.D. that you would use for everything. This would be so good that it would work for your bank account, your internet access, your drivers license on-line purchases, and probably as I.D. to use with your credit card, everything.
Imagine never doing (almost) anything anywhere ever again without leaving an electronic record. Not to worry, this "password" would be encrypted in a chip either on your cell phone or maybe embedded into a card, which of course you would never lose.
Safe? Certainly! You have the NSA's assurance that the encryption on the card is their very latest, and that no "backdoors" will ever be included. Your browsing history, your comments, and your posts would be safely tied to your own personal I.D. You would never be a nameless, faceless drone ever again but rather a fully recognized member of society.
I can imagine only a couple of exceptions to this. High government officials would of course need to keep certain sensitive actions confidential, and of course this I.D. would never be demanded as a condition of voting.
