    Big brother is here, or is it there?

    A couple of years ago, I was considering doing a DNA test as part of my genealogy research. I didn't do it because of privacy concerns.


    "Jiang Haolin, 31, gave a blood sample, too. He had no choice.
    The authorities told Mr. Jiang, a computer engineer from a rural county in northern China, that “if blood wasn’t collected, we would be listed as a ‘black household,’” he said last year, and it would deprive him and his family of benefits like the right to travel and go to a hospital."



    Sounds so similar to our current situation. "If you don't support BLM, you will be on our blacklist". (Am I allowed to use "blacklist"?)

    You probably have a niece or nephew who did the genetic thing... so yours isn’t needed.
