Even as this is just a plan, for now, the worst scenerio that is coming out of this is exploring the issue of psychological resistance to the use of personal information thereby creating a negative mark on people who don't want their information shared with the government. Automatically if you choose not to share your information, you are labeled a subversive. This can't be good at all, and reminds me of the beginnings of a previous New Order.
