So here’s why ayam not boarding unless it’s law.
Take it from me: you DON’T need a new number to consolidate the rest.
Your ID number is already unique, and you cannot get anything else without it. If the government’s efforts were honest, they’d improve their current systems, not add a new one.
It’s ironic that there was an uproar about JKIA being quickly and silently taken over by government-owned KQ, and yet people are rushing to register without involvement and information.
Whenever information (especially about service delivery) is made scarce by a government that has spent hundreds of millions on ads convincing us that it “delivers,” what does that tell you?
Why would the government rush to implement something so extensive yet data protection bills have been sitting in parliament for the past few years?
It can’t be about service delivery, because it is clear that the service this country has received from the government has largely been a disservice.
Who else is involved?
The unconfirmed figure I’ve heard is that the budget for the project is 6 Billion. (Context: 1 million seconds = 11 days. 1 billion seconds = 32 years)
Who stands to benefit? Politicians and hustlers. Not the people.
We do this all the time in tech. Instead of selling you expensive software once, we switch to a subscription model which seems “affordable” but which means you’ll pay a lot more over your lifetime.
Why the threats then?
As always, the choice is yours.
