Fingerprint Now Required to Sell Home
Beginning June 1, 2009, anyone selling a property in Cook County, IL (Chicago) must provide a thumbprint from their right hand.
Proponents of the law claim its purpose is to prevent fraud, but it has rightfully been met with resistance from many who believe there are privacy risks.
I have been openly very critical of government on this site and have received questions from some people wondering what I would define as the proper role of government in society. The state does have a role in enforcing contracts, which includes the prosecution of fraud.
But to apply a blanket "fraud prevention" clause to the entire population by requiring the involuntary surrending of personal and private information is a gross misapplication of the state's role and one of the many violations of privacy that Leviathan has perpetrated against its minions.
