Record growth in DNA Database
"Many of the 722,464 new samples were taken by police from people who have never been convicted of – or even charged with – a criminal offense. Britain now has a DNA database holding nearly five million samples – by far the largest in the world. Anyone picked up for an arrestable offense has to provide a DNA sample"
And then the story continues when these records get put on some USB-stick and left behind on the backseat of a bus. Privacy is dead if you ask me. The technological landscape is what it is and there's nothing anyone can do about that. Go with the flow, cause the flow goes. And if you don't like the flow, peddle ashore. Once you've planned the right direction you can reach the shore if you peddle real hard so you can then run off into the forest to finally be at ease within the realm of silence. But in the background, the water flows and so the flow goes.
So much for our weekly program Philosophy for the Insane. Thank you for tuning in and have yourself a lovely evening. Bye bye now.
