Well obviously you don't know how rfid works. It has no power source. And it cannot be altered in its programming because its a solid state hardware. That doesn't prevent some nefarious agent from sneaking into your house and replacing it. But then again, there's nothing preventing him from doing that today. The level of security in either case is indifferent.
Technically the government, this instant, could say the constitution is illegal and do whatever it wants.
laws don't actually exist you see. Just the consensus of the people of what is legal and not.
So that's really all that prevents what you speak of. Consensus. And consensus is that most commoners want their lives to themselves in their houses, but don't much give a damn beyond that. And that they want to know what their politicians and CEOs are up to, and it is their consensus that gives them that right. A little drip of democracy in the republic.Too much, and their consensus could kill people. Too little, and they are sheep.
And additionally, you keep yelling about the selling of this information, but I repeat myself. The hell can you use it for? The only use it has is statistics. Nothing more. What most people do during their days, so they know what type of ads to place where. Beyond this, this information is utterly useless on a persona level. And if they tried anything funny, they're liable to get a rifle in their face.edit on 14-8-2011 by Gorman91 because: (no reason given)

Intelligence on each and every person of course.
If you are of the mind that there is a plot to form a nwo then you would gather data on everyone to look for threats.
As for rfid, if something can send information, it can also recieve new informationedit on 14-8-2011 by EvanB because: (no reason given)
Consumer watchdog group CASPIAN is demanding a recall of millions of RFID-equipped contactless credit cards in light of serious security flaws reported today in the New York Times. The paper reports that a team of security researchers has found that virtually every one of these cards tested is vulnerable to unauthorized charges and puts consumers at risk for identity theft.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a controversial technology that uses tiny microchips to transmit information at a distance. These RFID microchips have earned the nickname "spychips" because the data they contain can be read silently and invisibly by radio waves without an individual's knowledge or consent. The technology has long been the target of criticism by privacy and civil liberties groups.
Researchers are showing how a thief could skim information from the cards right through purses, backpacks and wallets. This information includes the cardholder's name, credit card number, expiration date and other data that would be sufficient to make unauthorized purchases. They say the information could even be used to identify and track people, a scenario Albrecht and co-author Liz McIntyre lay out in their book, "Spychips: How Major Corporations and Government Plan to Track Your Every Purchase and Watch Your Every Move."
Outside the realm of retail merchandise, RFID tags are tracking vehicles, airline passengers, Alzheimer's patients and pets. Soon, they may even track your preference for chunky or creamy peanut butter. Some critics say RFID technology is becoming too much a part of our lives -- that is, if we're even aware of all the parts of our lives that it affects.
Analysis of Financial Terrorism in America: Over 1 Million Deaths Annually, 62 Million People With Zero Net Worth, As the Economic Elite Make Off With $46 Trillion
…Despite increasing personal financial hardship, most Americans remain unaware of the economic world war currently unfolding. An all-pervasive corporate and government propaganda campaign has effectively obscured this blatant reality. After extensive analysis, it is evident that World War III is a war between the richest one-tenth of one percent of the global population and 99.9 percent of humanity. Or, as I have called it, The Economic Elite Vs. The People. This war has been a one-sided attack thus far. However, as we have seen throughout the world in recent months, the people are beginning to fight back. …
Within the United States, the technocratic suppression of the population has been extensive. Increasingly severe economic and governmental policies have systematically eroded civilian wealth, power and rights. Intensive propaganda has effectively distracted, confused, isolated, marginalized and divided the US population. Despite the success of these efforts thus far, given the severe, prolonged, unsustainable and escalating level of economic suffering, outbreaks of civil unrest are inevitable. The US population, if a critical mass is reached, represents the greatest threat to the Economic Elite. In this regard, the American people are their primary adversary.

That's not the half of it.
Today they can use the wifi connection on her laptop as radar and detect when she comes home, how many people are in her home...the dimensions of the room the laptop is in....
Her cars computer stores her speed, driving time.....newer cars even have little cellphones in their computers to relay information back to someone and triangulate your current position.
Maybe her computer's manufacturer is having a bum year....they can remotely disable her computer to make her buy a new one...
Maybe her car manufacturer needs some money so thru the cars computer they disable a sensor on the transmission so she has to take it to the dealership and fork out 300 quid for a new part...that the car never even needed.
That's where technology is at right now.
