RFID; Not What It's Stacked Up to Be
Everyone's talking about it! Yes; the Radio Frequency Identification implant chip! It will be your new identification. No hassle of wallets, cash, credit or debit cards, stolen or lost photo IDs, paper records, etc. It's small; the size of a grain of rice! New ones are even smaller! If you get it injected into your hand or forehead, it will be with you for life; your own electronic radio frequency ID with you very own IP address complete with bank balances, medical records, school records, criminal records if any, street address and location, updated continually. It's just perfect for Bitcoin! It may also link to computers directly so that you can think what you want to post instead of doing all that annoying typing with all those typos that always seem to get away. We can see that those who work with their hands will have it planted there and those with their mind will opt for the forehead location. It's totally programmable so that changes in any status will be instantaneously recorded at your very own personal IP. People are running amok to get them installed. There was a concert in Washington State where 1.5 million people lined up to have them inserted. Talk about eager beavers! It was as if the sound of squealing pigs in abundance could be heard from afar. Some religious types are screaming that it's the mark of the beast and we can certainly see how they can be abused given the current political and financial realities in the world. Given the massive corruption, what is to stop corruption here as well. Committing fraud via the internet is faster and more difficult to trace and deal with. Then there are the hackers and hactivists.
Why RFID? That question is easily answered by looking at crime stats. RFID is very personal and it will be much harder for criminals to steal or do other offences unless they cut off someones hand or head (the main argument against getting one installed).RFID is the ultimate in state control of the masses so that every function or act is recorded on your personal chip and at a central record keeping agency such as the NSA. There will also be a complete change in how we do things. Except for phone calls to book appointments or for job hunting, everything will become automated through the RFID. That means no banks as we know them. Paper cash will be a thing of the past. Store checkouts will be a thing of the past as devices to scan what you buy will replace cashiers at the checkout. Many stores already have automated checkouts with lots of pay options. Collectively, we are already well into our training. Administrative and bureaucratic type jobs will be replaced by computers and servers that will arrange everything.
RFID chips are already in photo identification and have been for several years. So then, we already can be tracked via our wallets. The “mark of the beast” is already with us near our butts, but it is voluntary. Edward Snowden has exposed what some have already suspected. Tracking chips, microphone and video monitors abound on and around us. Cell phones, and for that matter, Ipads, laptop computers with webcams, video and video capable cameras are also tracked and traceable. Our own devices are being used to spy on us. It is epidemic and has infected the entire globe! This has been going on at least since 9-11, if not longer, for which proof exists. However, we can chose to leave the cell phone, Ipad, laptop and video camera at home. We can also sequester our credit, debit and photo IDs in a miniature version of a Faraday cage, that is, an aluminum wallet. That would not be so easy with an implanted RFID unless one wears chain mail gauntlets and wears a metal hat like a WWII war helmet or a knight's visor.
The Implanted Microchip has Huge Paradigm Shifting Implications
Chips are ubiquitous in all contemporary electronic equipments and many are activated by remote control. Many modern, key-less entry and start cars are in use right now. How confident are you that someone else, like in the NSA or the police force, don't have a duplicate electronic key that can not only do what yours does, but can also shut down your car when in motion and lock you in. They may also, in military applications, be used to speed your car out of control and disable the brakes. Chips can be hacked as well, as one case of a RFID chipped man found out when he discovered that he got a computer virus. There is now a term to describe such events; a “hacked vehicle”. Someone else could take over your car and arrange an “accident”. Another employee of the NSA other that Ed Snowden, also blew the whistle and attempted to escape, only to seen on a security video that showed his car speeding down a street and then suddenly exploding into a fireball in what can be described as suspicious circumstances. Modern mobility devices are also chipped. Though these are not activated by remote control, the chip can be hacked from the outside, with the result desired by the hacker. The author has witnessed this type of scenario many times. The hapless person in the wheel chair finds it seemingly at the control of someone else when it suddenly spins in useless circles, lurches violently and dangerously into onrushing traffic or “conveniently” stopping right in the middle of a cross walk during rush hour. In these cases, the attendant needs to know how to “pull the plug” and manually control the device. There are no stats on those drivers of mobility devices who are alone and experience these events and have no one to help.
RFID is not without controversy outside of Biblical critique made by many Christians, which many have commented on. RFID chips have been known to get computer viruses and are no doubt the object of hackers. With advanced encryption technology, this risk should be reduced, but the things are still susceptible to electromagnetic pulse (EMP), which would be enough to erase your existence on a computer bank. Though computers can be hardened against transient EMP, it is highly unlikely that the tiny RFID can be. In the event of an EMP event. Whether natural or man made, the implant will be erased and rendered inoperable and you will no longer be able to be globally positioned nor function in the new economy. The only way to evade RF|I D hacking or erasure, is to wear chain mail gauntlets or a metal hat. Tin foil WILL DO! Imagine that; all the RFID chipped people suddenly donning tin foil hats and joining a huge tin foil hat movement, just to protect their precious data!
