Its not about hiding. Its about personal space. Imagine what it would be like if at any time someone could just run up to you and without blinking, just stick their eyeball up your nose.

I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

How come all your solutions are so violent?

That's just the problem though: Governments are made up of people. Without that "badge" it would just be another person who's inspecting your private possessions.
