The title of this thread is/was the headline of a poll that I happened upon
while visiting the New York Daily News website.
(EDIT TO ADD)...the source provided is the web page of an unrelated story.
The POLL is in the side-bar on that page when you scroll down

I was flabbergasted at the implications of the cleverly constructed poll answers.

On the surface it seems innocent enough--they are asking a provocative question
and providing an easy means of answering the question for the purpose of taking a poll.

BUT...

As you will see, only one "con" answer is provided, versus five "pro" answers
and two "unsure" answers.

Although, it is very subtle, to me this is clear manipulation of opinion.

Here is the actual poll



What do you think of the Human Barcode project?

A. It's scary to think what hackers may be able to do to us with those implants.
A. It would make society more organized.
A. It may be an interesting way to track former prisoners, but not for the general public.
A. It might be nice not to have to worry about carrying identification.
A. It's a complete invasion of privacy.
A. I haven't heard of Human Barcoding.
A. I'm not sure.
A. I can certainly see the benefits.


What is happening here is public conditioning--a slow pervasive manipulation of
opinion EVEN while doing something as innocuous as asking a question...

For me, I would feel better if one of the answers provided had been:

A. It's a completely outrageous proposition and if you even so much as mention
it again I will sock you in the jaw!

So what do you think?

I agree completely. Concur precisely. If you are not given a way to write out your precise opinion, but left to "check" any amount of preconceived answers, obviously, it is a manipulation.

I haven't checked the site.....However, "the human bar code project?" Interesting, quite a while ago, I started incorporating bar codes on the women I was drawing in my art....knowing we were already there. LOL, or should I cry?

The link to the source you provided is not about human barcode's; the title in the article is:

"Cop claims he was stalked by woman he arrested — but she says it’s a fabrication to dismiss her civil suit "

Well i don't know much about this but it is alarming. Especially since it is exactly what is talked about in the bible, mark of the beast. I find it interesting how you were right, the questions were manipulated. Man, scary stuff.

Well, I didn't find a site dedicated to The Human Barcode Project. The source
provided takes you to the page with the poll. Although, after checking a few other
stories on their site, the poll shows up on other pages aw well.

Most of us here realize that "opinion polls" don't reflect reality. The "pollster pimps" are just that: lying, twisting, pimps.

The psychology behind modern polls also have direct ties to "consensus building." The following articles are linked from a website that houses, imo, some of the best articles on the internet for the kind of issues that have brought most of us here.

Make sure and dig through their various topic categories from UFO to NWO to Just About Everything.

"What do you think of the human bar-code project?"

I think its a bad idea mark of the beast scenario with implications that will be tremendously far reaching and essentially remove the last of our freedom!


But that's just my opinion. I'm sure our Illuminati overlords have the best of intensions...........NOT! LoL

Someone will just forge the code and drain your accounts.

Anyway, why do you need a code to sit in a bar. I suppose you can punch in a code to get in the door

Yea but it only says "on your hand or forehead" I believe so when they do away with cash that could be considered a qualifier. Remember or be able to produce a card to scan to be able to prove ID, or to buy or sell. In fact that is an IRS argument right now. No more cash no more IRS problems.

Well I don't care where you want to put it, no way no how as far as I am concerned. Lol any way you want to talk about it sounds an awful lot what the Bible talked about to me. Either way no mark for me, you want one go for it lol.

Ricky: That's the best laugh I've had all day.....
But, I don't even think I'd accept a code to sit in a bar. ....I'll just by my vodka at the corner store, thx. Do I need a code for that???

In many ways, we have already willingly have let ourselves become "bar-coded."

However the bar code isn't a tattoo or embedded chip, but our smartphones. With the integration of NFC transfer, smartphones are literally a hop and skip away from becoming a plausible identification system.

In addition, phones already track your location via GPS, you can access any personal cyber information from it (including bank accounts), you register your email/facebook/twitter to it. And, oh yeah, you get a handy 10 digit number associated to it. Hmmm, bar code anyone?

This type of tech could be developed to erase your whole wallet. Heck, it already replaced your watch! At least we don't have to worry about it replacing our spectacles.... OH WAIT! Whoops, I forgot about Google Glass.

Your phone already provides all the information about you that they could possibly ask for! Somewhere, some computer knows where your phone is. It also provides input into all of your opinions that you could post on social networks. It knows how much money you have. It also tracks and knows which other "bar codes" you have been communicating with, and if it's an SMS message... that can be downloaded faster than you thought about it being downloaded. NFC tech just needs to become more secure, and of course there would have to be some kind of government involvement in order for it to become a more obvious identification system. Imagine though, that when you got pulled over for speeding you just handed over your phone instead of a driver's license? Creepy, man. Seriously, creepy.

Of course, that doesn't mean I don't love my Galaxy s4...haha. But, it still is quite disturbing to think about.

RFID and barcodes are nothing to be afraid of. In fact, at this point they are both pretty obsolete compared to other ways of tracking people (heat signature, gait patterns, facial recognition, etc.). The average Vegas casino has enough ways of tracking you, without any sort of implants or invasive procedures.

Even the most basic recognition systems these days can detect you wearing a mask/hat/hood/or obstructing your face in some other way as well. There's really not much that can stop any of this from happening, either.
