ID Card Graffiti

Spotted this piece of anti-id card graffiti on the bridge by Shoreditch tube station. An interesting extrapolation of what ID cards and the accompanying technology might lead to in terms of the public relationship with government and the state.

Of course, it starts with the other, with people that don’t have the right to defend themselves – those here on assylum, those seeking it and others in apparently weak and insecure situations. Then everyone gets used to it, and the next we know we all have “entitlement cards”, and need them in order to survive.
