Your privacy: No picture, no ride

The Manila Police District is now implementing a "No picture, no ride" policy in provincial buses. You cannot ride a bus unless your picture is taken supposedly for crime prevention.

At face value (pun intended), it seems good but does it really prevent any crime? It does invade your privacy. Privacy is not about hiding anything wrong, it is preventing the government and anyone else from intruding into every aspect of your lives.

I'll write more about this later.
