Thanks a bunch for pointing this out. Really, its not that far off. The health issue and the library book issue are the most frightening.

A lot of this is happening already in the US. It isn't been driven by the government, it is being driven and controlled by private enterprise. The government there is doing nothing to protect US consumers' privacy from private firms.

However, most Americans believe the main threat to their privacy is from the government. This is simply not true.

I bet it's all running on .NET.
