"Possession of a birth certificate is a prerequisite to receiving any sort of privilege from the State: whether it be a driver's license, marriage license, contractor's license, etc. (I might add that none of these licenses are inherently necessary to the activities which they authorize. One can competently drive, marry, and build without a license from the State.) In short, the birth certificate is the basis for the state's monopolization of identification. It is literally 'a license to live,' issued by the government." (04/28/11)
