Authorization and submission to the Beast system will be required for all transactions in the future envisioned by our would-be enslavers.
We saw this creepy scrawl on the sidewalk recently, warning that “Obamacare has a microchip for all Americans.”
Is it true?
It’s a scary and perhaps plausible scenario that would drastically concentrate further power into the hands of government, so I would in no way put it past the Washington crowd. But in this case, for once in a very long while, I’m with the debunkers in calling the claim a myth, though ObamaCare establishes many regrettable precedents and poses numerous threats of its own to privacy, due process and taxation without representation.
While I applaud those trying to warn about the very real threat of forcible RFID implants, the language referred to by many hailing the Mark of the Beast seems vague at best. Unless covertly administered through some other treatment, it would seem that an RFID would be the only thing more difficult to implement than ObamaCare itself.
On the other hand, an agenda is working towards the acceptance of tracking chips, that will in one form or another act as “biomarkers” that trace every meaningful action we take, and register a digital record of each event in a larger, increasingly centralized database.
Population control at its finest…
In earthly terms, the “Mark of the Beast” passage in Revelations seems indeed compellingly prescient and assuredly a useful tool that any would-be ruler of earth would attempt to implement. The era of rapidly advancing technology is sure to provoke numerous attempts to digitize collars and shackles – digitally or otherwise – and a to dismiss that such a threat exist in RFID is just too trusting to be compatible with freedom.
“He required everyone–small and great, rich and poor, free and slave–to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name.” Revelation 13:16-17 (NLT)
Any number of new technologies are being applied to the management of data, with the intent to require all to adopt its usage.
As past attempts to make RFID chips trendy reveal, the elite more likely to attempt an enticing lure or compelling need to get a base compliance with tracking through gradual voluntary means. It was reported in 2004, for example, how a bar in Spain offered VIP status upon patrons willing to take an implantable RFID chip – both concept of incentive and sacrifice are in implied in CNN’s headline “The price to pay for VIP status.”
A DARPA researcher and now executive for both Google and Motorola Regina Dugan recently promoted some icky new proposals for this control – an electronic tattoo on the skin and a pill that, once swallowed, is powered biochemically and provides password authentication for online applications.
The elite Bilderberg crowd has recently illustrated the intent to track the activities of the general population at large. Just ahead of the 2012 meeting, EU Digital Agenda Commissioner Neelie Kroes proposed announced her working proposal to create “a single authenticating ID” for all Internet users before meeting with top industrialists, government insiders and Silicon Valley technocrats.
This year, the 2013 Bilderberg meeting is officially discussing “How big data is changing almost everything,” a topic whose implications are enormous. Alex Karp, founder and CEO of CIA-funded Palantir Technologies, was invited presumably to share his expertise in large-scale big brother data surveillance and is actively engaged in formulating infowar attacks designed to target sovereign entities or data-leaking rogue groups like WikiLeaks.
The term “big data” has been thrown around amidst news items about the NSA-Verizon phone records scandal, and President Obama’s casual endorsement for unwarranted spying that his predecessor set-up in the name of nabbing terrorists.
Let me count the ways – there are many other creepy examples of how big corporations and big government are literally conspiring to collect, process and analyze data to monitor individuals en totale. Perhaps these controlling technologies are coming to a head, and the possibility of RFID chips as one delivery vehicle is quite plausible.
However, it is equally likely that a more sophisticated technology will replace its functions, and perhaps even be more acceptable to the public. What remains clear is that government has proven it will not wait to seek permission to collect and use such data, so there is no reason to trust their intentions with the incredible and misplaced power of digital medicine, and no reason to assume its use will be disclosed. Without a whistleblower, we may remain on the dark of how far this thing all really goes.
