There's a bright side (to me) to the Equifax bungling and lying caper.
Maybe if enough "socialist insecurity" numbers get stolen and used all over the place in fraudulent (more fraudulent) ways, it will discredit the use of those numbers. (I mean, to the "mainstream" slaves.)
I'm ambivalent about the truthfulness of "credit scores", but I have no such ambivalence about that nasty numbering, tracking, and human inventory scheme that is the SSN. I want it to die. Anything that damages its "legitimacy" in the eyes of it's marginal supporters seems like a good thing to me.
