You hit the nail on the head with everything in regards to a lot of things I did not bring up, which is why I love that this is an international
forum, and you brought a strong Canadian representation into this for what we are seeing in the Looking Glass over on this side of the border. I would
say it is in fact a conspiracy of collusion though with the "Membership Card" companies, Sky Miles, credit cards, Government, not the entire
Government perse, but factions of it knowingly as well as other factions unknowingly, as like you stated bits and pieces of this are being shown to us
while other things are being hidden totally.
It's not about actually protecting anyone, but about in fact creating an Information Police State, so that all your information is fed into a
database somewhere in order to keep track of everyone's habits as well as what things they are purchasing, who is at the store at the same time, how
often they go to the store, what time of day, and in essence a huge and ongoing running Census at all times.
Ever wonder why there's been bar-codes on your food items at the grocery store, conveiniance store, and local clothing stores? To track data as well
as to scan for a price, it's all fed into a computer in the store for inventory purposes, as well as to keep "human error" out of the picture as
well as employees honest, further seperating humans from humans and putting a machine between us as a society. In essence, welcome to the machine, you
are a piece of meat with a number, now move along.
Think about this one moment and you will see the ramifications of how important and how low key the numbers really are in your own subconcious.
When you go into a store, you pass those vertical devices that set off an alarm if someone is to steal a DVD or X-Box game, then you go about your
business shopping for an hour, or several if you're like some people I know, and the whole time, you are surrounded by the very imprisoning device
that is so small and subtle in scale but also so large it should be smacking you in the face, the bar-code. There are trillions of bar-codes all over
the Wal-Wart or whatever store of your choosing, as well the oh so innocent seeming RFID, or Radio-Frequency Identification Device, that looks like a
shiny piece of tin-foil within the DVD's and Playstation 3 games.
Anyone remember the recent movie, "Hitman" where he has a bar-code on the back of his head, this was a ploy on the part of someone, who knows who,
to get you initiated into the thought processes of being tagged by a bar-code like something for sale. A human toy so to speak in that you can be sold
to whoever can put you in the shopping basket, and put you onto the vulcanized rubber belt.
I can just see it now, I'm 360 pounds, and it would take six people to put Me up there.
Okay, so you're done shopping, and you pass back through those vertical and electronic devices that detect if someone stole a DVD, video game, or
whatever else that the RFID is in, in order to alert the Wal-Mart senior who is standing nearby innocently waving and greeting as everyone comes in
Now, remember the biochip, Verichip and Digital Angel, if this device is implanted into your body, somewhere down the road, when this is done, it will
alert Wal-Mart of your presence within the store, the Senior Greeter will no longer be a part of the picture as he or she will be deemed unnecessary
as a cost efficient means to save even more money, and here's the thing, Wal-Mart will be alerted to your presence, approximately how much your worth
to them that day, your previous spending habits will of course be data that is both collected as well as saved for future analysis, and it tells of an
electronic fence of where you always go throughout the store. Meaning here, that all those little seemingly innocent bard-codes are in fact a digital
fence, and if you accidently bump the fenced in enclosure, the computer is alerted to it.
Of course all of this is just to make things easier for you, as well as keep track of data, and to save you time and money, but in the long term,
it's chipping away at your psyche that you are subconciously inundated with numbers, and that you are in essence a number, and no longer worthy of a
name and designation as a human being, but are in essence cattle, sheep, and or a number to the machine, whichever analogy you pick I'm sure fits for
your independant mind.
Bar-codes, credit cards, travel documents, IP Addresses, oh my.
Ver are your papers, please? Nevermind, I zee dat your bar-code and RFID is in place. Carry on Mr and Mrs Cattle, move along now before you are
detained for asking too many questions.
If you want to read up on the subject more, there are a few great books that will show you where this comes from as well as where it's going to
No Place To Hide : Robert
O'Harrow : Washington Post Reporter
Spychips: How Major Corporations and
Government Plan to Track Your Every Purchase and Watch Your Every Move
RFID For Dummies
I've read the first two books thoroughly, and I am ordering the last two books as well as one other on the topic, just to see just how deep this
rabbit hole goes. I'm wondering how long it will be until I finally run into the Queen of Hearts and the Mad Hatter.
