Tutto nello stato

I was reminded of the fascist slogan “Tutto nello Stato, niente al di fuori dello Stato, nulla contro lo Stato” (everything for the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state) by this article at Lew Rockwell's. I am further reminded by this post at Fausty's, commenting on this article in The Times, where we learn of the grotesquely-overbearing state's latest snare.

According to The Times:

"The aim is that within a year, everybody in the country should have a personalised website through which they would be able to find out about local services and do business with the Government. A unique identifier will allow citizens to apply for a place for their child at school, book a doctor’s appointment, claim benefits, get a new passport, pay council tax or register a car from their computer at home. Over the next three years, the secure site will be expanded to allow people to interact with their children’s teachers or ask medical advice from their doctor through a government version of Facebook."

Nothing outside the state, indeed.
