Heather Fackelman HONP 112 W-5:30-8:00 Due: 11/05/08 “National ID Cards” In his article, Alan Cowell explains that Great Britain had proposed that everyone have national ID cards. Because of the global threat of terrorism, the government was planning on enforcing national identification cards for the first time since the Second World War. A legislator claimed that it was just to heighten fear before a critical election, however. This legislation was to be enforced this year, and this outraged many citizens. Many were not comfortable with the fact that their information would be in government databases and that the information would be abused. Protesters carried stamps in the form of barcodes and said that the government plans were “the moral equivalent of bar-coding the entire population.” Peter Hain commented saying that “people have to be safe to enjoy their liberty,” though. I feel that personal ID cards separate from our driver’s licenses might provide heightened security, but I feel that it would be a hassle to have to obtain the new ID.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
