Li ontem que caso recusemos que a nossa privacidade seja invadida pelo INE que isso poderá sair caro ao já nosso muito depauperado bolso, multas entre 250 e 3740 euros.
Tal como o Miguel se questiona neste meu post no FriendFeed, sobre a eventual inconstitucionalidade de semelhante lei, também eu tenho as minhas sérias dúvidas, mas escusado será dizer que neste país, mundo, onde a privacidade e a Constituição estão cada vez mais demodé, alguém se irá realmente preocupar com isso, especialmente quando existem tantas senhoras e senhores deste Governo e desta Assembleia da República tão amantes de um Estado POLICIAL onde toda a gente é controlada e onde sem qualquer pejo entregam a nossa Soberania e a PRIVACIDADE dos seus cidadãos aos EUA e à UE.
Não me alongarei mais nesta entrada, deixo apenas alguns links para recordar a HISTÓRIA, nomeadamente alguns exemplos para que serviram os Censos….infelizmente os exemplos mostram o que há de pior na humanidade.
The Nazi census: identification and control in the Third Reich
Despite decades of denials, government records confirm that the U.S. Census Bureau provided the U.S. Secret Service with names and addresses of Japanese-Americans during World War II.
The Census Bureau surveys the population every decade with detailed questionnaires but is barred by law from revealing data that could be linked to specific individuals. The Second War Powers Act of 1942 temporarily repealed that protection to assist in the roundup of Japanese-Americans for imprisonment in internment camps in California and six other states during the war. The Bureau previously has acknowledged that it provided neighborhood information on Japanese-Americans for that purpose, but it has maintained that it never provided “microdata,” meaning names and specific information about them, to other agencies.
President Franklin Delano Roosevelt authorized the internment with Executive Order 9066, issued February 19, 1942, which allowed local military commanders to designate “military areas” as “exclusion zones,” from which “any or all persons may be excluded.” This power was used to declare that all people of Japanese ancestry were excluded from the entire Pacific coast, including all of California and most of Oregon and Washington, except for those in internment camps. In 1944, the Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of the exclusion orders, while noting that the provisions that singled out people of Japanese ancestry were a separate issue outside the scope of the proceedings. The United States Census Bureau assisted the internment efforts by providing confidential neighborhood information on Japanese Americans. The Bureau’s role was denied for decades but was finally proven in 2007.
IBM and the Holocaust is a book by investigative journalist Edwin Black which details the business dealings of the American-based multinational corporation International Business Machines (IBM) and its German and other European subsidiaries with the government of Adolf Hitler during the 1930s and the years of World War II. In the book, Black outlines the way in which IBM’s technology helped facilitate Nazi genocide against the Jewish people through generation and tabulation of punch cards based upon national census data.
