I've thought about conspiracy scenarios where the government forcibly attaches microchips to people or plants them inside of them. But as I watched
the use of a cellphone explode, I revised my thinking. Cellphones used to be a tool. Now, they are a way of life for many many people, and people
without them look like fools to others.
If the government were behind the conspiracy to track and mark people, THIS would be the way to do it. To be so subtle that no one would realize it.
Forcing people would result in some form of retailation, however small and would creat a resistance. But offer it disguised as a phone full of
features that you just HAVE to buy, and few will notice. There is no telling who has access to your phone when it's on, and so many come equipped
with a GPS system that is defaulted to ON. And it's promoted like a good thing.
I brought a GPS navigator with me on a trip last year, and the whole time, I was thinking that it would be so easy for someone to track me. I'm
hooked into the sattellites to get coordinates. And the damn things are so accurate it could register my speed to within a mile or 2 of my actual
speed. Something that is a useful tool could be used against me. Along with the traffic light cameras that have popped up all over my city. It
doesn't cut down on crime...anyway
Same with the "check cards" type things. I'm not sure what I believe about the bible and revelation. But if you do go with the idea of the mark
of the beast being necessary for commerce, maybe the plastic cards are the beginning of the road.
People get used to using credit cards and check cards, then the government offers some new form of them. After a while, they pass legislation that
you HAVE to use this new form to engage in commerce - cash is no longer printed. And so many will already have it and be using it only a few will be
without it. The majority didn't have it forced; on them - they chose it.
