    In the Western Countries everyone is monitored and information stored from the cradle to grave.This pressure is one of the reasons for the disproportionate number of mental problems among the Whites. Are we going to create a Sick Society like the West in Sri Lanka.

    How can the monitoring of an individual's information create pressure. The pressure is from the pursuit of wrong objectives and very shallow values. As much as some have the "perception" that 'Whtes' meanng industrially wealthy countries have problems, they in turn have the perception that Asian Countries have enough problems of their own in their societies.

    Not only students but every citizen from child birth or from the point of becoming a naturalized citizen should have a DNA and bio metric profile with retinal scan and finger prints. These records should then be encrypted and shared with birth certificates, ID cards, driving licenses and passports, etc. Any attempt to tamper with the electronic IDor stored data should be made a serious offense punishable by death.
