Title: You want even more Personal Data? Are you kidding?
Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety (Benjamin Franklin). Do you really want to buy security with your privacy? Large databases with DNA samples (which the law enforcement bodies cannot read efficiently), body scanners on airports (which don't discover dangerous chemicals), fingerprints (which can easily be forged) for opening the doors ... no, thanks ... neither of those methods isn't reliable - practical examples which will show why the national legislations shouldn't implement huge Personal Data collections and why the most sensitive Personal Data aren't always reliable for use.
