      ...that's a mighty big leap you're making there.

      There are many problems with over reliance on ID documents, but you can't simply equate IDs with fascism. At best (worst?), they make certain activities of fascists easier. But they also make some things harder--like hiding the extent of homelessness.

        only came in vogue in a post-PATRIOT Act world.  Prior to that, it wasn't something we did in this country.  Getting a job requires one to show papers but after that, there's a presumption that democracy doesn't require it.
