    The way of the future is here today! Watch out because "Big Brother" is Watching... Todays scientific breakthroughs are tomorrows useful techniques in providing valuable information not only to the government but to private agencies, and even internet hackers bent on destroying your financial and social stability.  The most recent technological break through that is just now hitting mainstream is the RFID chipping system that will literally give anyone who has access to its database your exact wherabouts and all your private personal information that details every aspect of who you are.

        erm, no it wont, RFID as  it is now doesn't have more than enough capacity to store a few binary digits, which are linked to a product in a similar way to a barcode, and similar to a bar code take one RFID tag from one store to another and the new store wont even know what it is.

          You're right Oli. The RFID readers for passports can only id a small bit of code just like any other code for a product in a store. But the technology wants to expand to drivers licenses and other forms of identification.  If you combine the passport RFID reader with a credit card reader then it becomes a means for mass identity theft.  Watch this video of a hacker doing exactly what is feared just to prove that it can be done:

        Its not about fear tactics, but information about the capabilities of this technology when used incorrectly... Would you like an ex boyfriend to be able to find you through a private investigator who has RFID CHIP DATABASE access? Or would you like for an employer to be able to look up every transaction you've made including alcohol or cigarettes and then not hire you full time because your insurance would be higher because of health risks.  Or worse not be able to be insured because your insurance company was able to look up your spending habits and realised you were a high risk because you ate too much red meat...  Just because it hasn't happened yet doesn't mean it won't... Information is becomming readily available to corporations and they are not looking for high risk investments, insurance companies don't want to insure you if you are high risk, thats why now there are statements of pre existing conditions, would you like them to be able to deny a claim because they look at your history and try to claim it was your neglect of your body that caused the illness and foot you with the bill, and the only way to fight them is by a lawsuit you'll be tied up in for 20+ years when you'll probably not survive a year without the proceedure... There are too many possibilities not to consider the ramifications of mass implementation of RFID Chipping in people world wide, which is already happening in other countries. Just because America hasn't implemented it yet, doesn't mean that the process isn't comming our way!  Just research the topic... I'm just trying to make people aware of what could come from the decisions that are being made today...

      There will come a day when a "chip" will be embedded in every newborn....and the possibility exists that laws will be passed which will require that all living people have a chip "installed" which will include personal info + a GPS reflector.
      Of course all this depends upon the survival of mankind, which is dubious at this point in human evolution.
      If human population can be, intelligently, reduced to a manageable level. There is no doubt in my mind that a method will be created which will enable "Big Brother" to track any person and supply the "seeker" with
      necessary info about that person.
      The inevitablity of "big Brother" is absolute.

      In 2005 Hitachi produced a chip which was 0.3 millimetres square, that's not much bigger than the full stop at the end of this sentence. That was 5 years ago -imagine what they can do now.

      These chips will reference, as a minimum, your health data and your financial data (see Verichip website), track you like a parcel, and they can be programmed.
      Make no mistake, this is the end of personal freedom as we know it. This is not scaremongering. It is real and it is here now.
      This is not a Hollywood movie, and certainly not a comedy.

      Once your financial and bank balance is accessible via your chip, the people who control the chip control you. Soon, there will be no cash money (already underway). Then, if you are a bad boy, they could simply turn off your chip, meaning you could not buy anything at all, even food. 

      When they implant the chips, the game’s pretty much over for everyone. We will all become robots under the complete control of the elite and powerful few. We will be relieved completely of the troublesome burden of rational, independent thought. We will be told what to think and how to behave. No dissent will be tolerated.

      This is not a fanciful theory and not science fiction. This is happening now, and it is happening to you and me. Do the research and see for yourself. Chipping has been happening for some time in France, and now Mexico  ..)

      As they say, panic early!

      A lot of dumb uneducated people think they are comedians.

      RFID is a very serious step towards complete destruction of personal freedoms and rights.

      The dumb people won't be laughing when the Government seizes their bank accounts and they can't figure out why.

      Every coin has two sides.Our big brothers just forget that they too can be  fooled, because RFID also can be manipulated or hacked-smile
