The Australian society would not benefit by the introduction of a DNA signature identification system for all citizens over the age of 18. This is the same thing as the Australian Card, which was stopped being released in the mid 1960's. There were a number of reasons for this, as some being the government would know everything about you but maybe the government know more about you then you think. But is it all really that bad? Maybe it would help us as we could use it for identification purposes instead of carrying around a driver's license or maybe a birth certificate it would all be held on this one card.
Would the identification system be a benefit or not. It will defiantly change the way we do things. The DNA Identification System does have its benefits, as it would help in the medical department. If you were rushed to hospital from a car accident and you are unconscious the doctor will know if you were allergic to the anaesthetic or if you were a private patient or not. This would also help in the crime department, as it would store the whole of the Australian population of individuals over the age of 18. This would have all the information about each individual these would include their DNA, and other vital statistics.
At the scene of the crime there is usually fingerprints or some kind of DNA trail left behind. The police would use this DNA to log into the database to track down the criminal. It would also tell the location of where that criminal is to make it easier to find them. The system also has its problems, Lets say that you were a carrier of a disease but it does not affect you at any way at all, this could effect your employability as your employer could have access to your information. This would destroy our right to privacy. 'The right to privacy is one of the fundamental rights of any civilised society'; As quoted in the video 'You have no secrets' All of your information would be stored on a database, which would be accessible from the Internet.
This would give hackers the chance to hack in and take the information that they want and maybe change it this could allow them to change your credit information or maybe your identity. The information would have to be kept up to date if the information was incorrect then the wrong person could be arrested or maybe lose their car or house. When you go shopping or as soon as you leave the house all the information of where you go or what you do would be recorded about you.
