Big Brother arrives on Madeira

Source : Diário de Notícias 2/11/2007

Later this month there will be a new access control system for the employees and associates of the council of Santa Cruz through fingerprinting.

Efficient maybe, cost effective … probably, secure … certainly! But this is Madeira … couldn’t someone help the starving instead (see blog below).

After an evaluation phase, this technology is quite probably going to spread across the island.

Even in a short few years, changes like this are becoming more noticable on Madeira, which I still consider to be a safe country, although that is certainly slipping. Hence, I wonder whether the motivation is to control the people or protect the people? Certainly if it is to protect the people, then there are far greater priorities.
