How much of your privacy exists today?
The government exploited our privacy during the life of the Patriot Act.
The NSA still monitors us electronically.
The SSN is a tracking ID to keep track of so many things that we do.
It has made its way into to the private sector, even for things that are not connected to any reasonable use of the information by the government.
It is used as the master key for identity theft.
My I was in college, my student ID was my SSN?
The list goes on....
