Socratic Method / Social Security Numbers = De Facto National ID Card
« on: December 26, 2005, 07:03:14 AM »
SSNs should not be used the way they are currently used.

Refuse to provide it whenever you can -- e.g., strange as it may seem, you can be hired without giving your SSN to your employer.

Yet, SSNs are not unique identifiers as they say. After all, you can simply make up Social Security numbers randomly, and create a valid number not assigned to anyone. On the other hand you can make up a SSN that can be valid, while being probably been assigned to another person.
