This week science fiction writer Elizabeth Moon argues that everyone should be given a barcode at birth.
“If I were empress of the Universe I would insist on every individual having a unique ID permanently attached - a barcode if you will; an implanted chip to provide an easy, fast inexpensive way to identify individuals."
Clearly Moon is mad - mad enough to not be put off by the concept of 'empress of the Universe', let alone bar code everyone.
But it would make war more efficient ................... well that's OK then
