"Social Security - the Way Out"

Chapter Summaries

Chapter 4: "The Social Security Number and Its Threat to Privacy"

Here, we review the history of the Social Security number, the statues and regulations that provide for issuing the number, that there’s no law requiring anyone to have a number and that only those who are or intend to become recipients of federal aid may be assigned numbers. We also examine numerous media articles that discuss the threat to privacy that the Social Security number has become as it gradually becomes the universal identifier.

Chapter 5: "Section 7 of the Privacy Act of 1974"

This is a treatise on the history and development of Section 7, the one federal law that specifically protects individuals from disclosing their Social Security numbers.

Chapter 6: "The Right to Free Exercise of Religion"

We review, in depth, the right to free exercise of religion on both the state and federal laws, including the First Amendment, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (RFRA), the California religion clause (which is the same as many other states’ clauses), and other legal accommodations of religious objectors. This has been made an order for the lay reader to have enough background to understand the issue. This is a lengthy volume, but good educational material for students.
