really. So you stated two obvious and irrelevant facts. The joo state are criminals and they shouldn't be criminals. (second one is a moral fact)

Of course there would be problems even if it was 'voluntary'
So, you failed to make any meaningful connection between libertarian principles, isreal's fascism, surveillance and flu hysteria.
> I believe that this system could be structured so as to minimize loss of privacy,
which is nonsense. And the idea that people 'should' be tracked like cattle is of course antithetical to cypherpunk principles.

same nonsense repeated. It should also be taken into account that 'most people' are not in their right mind but suffering from mass delusion.

I saw some post of yours that mentioned google-nsa-gchq and I kinda suspected that you had the exact technofacist idea you have just presented. I ignored it at that time and I'm shredding it to pieces now.
