The latest of this is the creeping laws being passed in the US and the Uk whereby kids are being normalised to overt surveilance by the introduction of name tags, RFID chips and cameras in restrooms. All in the name of keeping the kids safe from lunatic gunmen. RUBBISH
Look out for the phrases "we must not have another tradegy" or " we can not have this happen in a civilised country" and of course "how could this happen". We are living in a culture that is increasingly becoming totalitarian in the name of safety. The windows won't open in hotels because you might jump out, peanuts are labled as may contain nuts in case you forgot!, and schools have been turned into prisons surrounded by walls and razor wire in the name of defending against paedophiles. Paedophiles are groomers, social paracites, not fucking GI Joes !!
This closed in society is not only closing us in in a physical way but also mentally and spirtually. We are told who we should be upset about on the news. We forget about the thousands of dead children in Afgahnistan, Iraq or even Germany, but then we are told that the "Nation is Mourning" a kid who gets shot cos he was dealing drugs for a bent Police officer!
No amount of RFID chips, video surveilance or brainwashing will stop the determined psycopath, we can see this in society as it is the psycopaths that rise to the top in all walks of life. The single minded and unfeeling way that they do their business sets them apart from those of us who have feelings. That is why they are sucsessful. That is why they make great corporate bosses and murderers, single minded, unfeeling with one goal in mind.
Below is a story I read, credit is given at the top. The issue here is that if I do not want to be chipped I should have the right to say no. But that right is now taken away.
Andrea Hernandez protesting the RFID badges

In the fall of
last year the San Antonio Northside School District in Texas announced that they
would track students with RFID (radio frequency identification) chips in their
One student, sophomore Andrea Hernandez, was suspended
for refusing to wear the tracking device and took the matter to court.
On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia ruled in favor of the school
district claiming they have the right to expel Hernandez for refusing to abide
by school requirements. By default the judge ruled that the school had the right
to force children to be treated like cattle while on campus.
program, called the “Student Locator Project,” is aimed at increasing student
attendance rates presumably to boost in public funding for the district.
“There is something fundamentally disturbing about this
school district’s insistence on steamrolling students into complying with
programs that have nothing whatsoever to do with academic priorities and
everything to do with fattening school coffers,” said John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute
when he took the case.
As part of the pilot program, roughly 4,200 students
at Jay High School and Jones Middle School are being required to wear “SmartID”
card badges embedded with an RFID tracking chip which will make it possible for
school officials to track students’ whereabouts on campus at all times. School
officials hope that by expanding the program to the district’s 112 schools, they
can secure up to $1.7 million in funding from the state government. (Source)The Hernandez family argued
that the RFID badges violated their daughter's privacy rights and referred to
them as the "Mark of the Beast", a reference to a warning in
the Book of Revelations.
The primary defense was not to challenge the
obvious privacy issues involved with the badges, but to seek a religious
exemption. The judge ruled that the badge is “not grounded in her religious
beliefs” and is a “secular choice rather than a religious concern.”
“The Supreme Court has made clear that government officials may not scrutinize
or question the validity of an individual’s religious beliefs,” said John W.
Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute, in a statement.
declaring Andrea Hernandez’s objections to be a secular choice and not grounded
in her religious beliefs, the district court is placing itself as an arbiter of
what is and is not religious. This is simply not permissible under our
constitutional scheme, and we plan to appeal this immediately," he added.
The court originally agreed to block the suspension to hear the case, but
would not extend that request for the appeal process.
"In coming to
Andrea’s defense, Rutherford attorneys have alleged that the school’s attempts
to penalize, discriminate and retaliate against Andrea violate her rights under
Texas’ Religious Freedom Act and the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the U.S.
Constitution," said Rutherford's lawyers.
SCARY. There is a basic human right to go about your daily business without harrassment, The governement in the US and UK has crossed that line again and again. We need to hit the streets and take back our freedom, protest against the RFID, the cameras, The cashless society, the laws that take away children needlessly, the laws that incarcerate those who seek alternatives to corporate monopoly.
