Unfortunately this was the next logical step. First the FBI compiled a "test database" of people's driver's license's in South Carolina and Florida back around 1999. Now all states require, at least the ones I've lived in TX and NY, your fingerprint. And if you are in the military, they also require your fingerprint to get your military ID.

Firt of all... I've got to see this film! IMO, that extrapolation doesn't go deep enough. That's why it's confusing. It wasn't agriculture vs. industiral. It was about money. Slavery was causing economic porblems for the North, and at the same time they weren't making much money off of it. The South, on the other hand, was totally dependant. For them, it was like choosing between being a multi-millionaire and being homeless. There really was no middle ground. It was about money. Great book!
