With all the hype around these RFID (radio frequency identification)chips. I have a couple of questions/concerns. I will not get chipped purely due to paranoia and privacy, (..and screw authority attitude) but naturally, I have to question if I/we are being paranoid...with every leaning moment, I'm leaning more towards NO!
With this thread I would like for all who have questios to post them, in hopes that we all know what we might be getting into, as I'm sure alot of us will be swayed by the loving ads, media stunts and genius marketing. (Although, 9/10 people say they will refuse) for now anyway...
The following has been stated regarding RFID chips. I will state my questions in brackets.
*RFID chips can only be read at short range. Maximum range 30ft-or so they say.
(Is posible for the powers that be to upgrade these chips and increase the range without the user knowing?)
*"A scanner operating at the right wavelength can read an RFID chip. That means that any hobbyist can just buy an RFID reader and use it to keep tabs on the chip-implanted people that happen to walk by."
(If it is so easy to access, Is it then possible for your RFID chip to get a virus?)
!!! I also wonder if these RFID chips can be used to trigger /temporarily controll neurotransmittors in the brain, causing a person to commit crime, or other actions that they normally would not do. I know it's a stretch, but just wondering... !!!
ON THE UP SIDE-
You could block your RFID chip from being scanned on detected by covering it with a METAL PLATE or something called Mylar fabric. www.mobilecloak.com...
-This also works on all wireless devices and stops people from hacking into your frequency)
If there is something sinister behind the RFID scene, the punishment laid upon these persons (by government) who refuse the RFID implant, will bring light upon the motives of those who enforce them.
May the truth come out sooner rather than later.
