Can you genuinely not see how misuse of medical information might hurt
you, or how a Government might wish to use it for purposes that we the
population may not want or approve of? If you genuinely cannot, then
say so and we will try to elucidate. But I fear you are being
rhetorically obtuse.

Here's what I said to Stephen Duckett. I think it accurately states why
I and many others fear that there are hidden/unstated and dangerous
objectives behind MHR system:

"Forgive my cynicism, but when a good way of achieving an objective is
persistently ignored in favour of a much, much worse way that
coincidentally is a really good way to achieve a bunch of other
unrelated things, the suspicion must arise that the real objective has
not been shared."
