"Authenticating"?? We Are Already "Authentic"!
This is the next big push by the government-corporate partnership (aka fascism) to "authenticate" individuals. And by "authenticate", they mean tracking you and everything you do, everyplace you go, what you buy, and whom you see. They actually believe it's their business, and that they are entitled to invade your very body. Apparently spying on us electronically from the outside wasn't invasive enough for their ultimate purpose of total control over the sheeple.
Furthermore, the google geeks and their ilk seek to concentrate this push on younger people, whom they theorize aren't used to actual privacy anyway, and are aiming to make individual electronic tracking and identification "cool." They want to use electronic tattoos, which they imagine the under-35 set will line up for in droves. For others, there is the daily tracking "vitamin".
The dweebs in the above video keep talking about "authentication", as opposed to tracking. Why not call a spade a spade? We don't need to be authenticated!! We are real, authentic human beings, and don't need gov-corp branding to entitle us to human/citizen status! This is just the marketing bullshit way of trying to con the gullible and the conformists into dutifully being absorbed into the hive, where individuality and privacy are verboten.
My guess is that most wingnuts and DINOs will embrace it (the only civil right they seem to care about is the 2nd amendment, after all), and will tout this as a way of keeping out the dreaded "illegal immigrants." And their pentagon pals will push it as a way of keeping "terrorists" out of the country. Yeah, right. We can be "safe" only with microchip tracking. We won't be allowed to go anywhere or do anything without our electronic chip. For "security purposes", of course. Can obedience chips be far behind?
BrassCheckTV, from which this video is sourced, calls it "the mark of the beast". I agree, but not in the biblical sense. The mark of the beast to me is the mark of the empire, the machine, big brother - which has become indistinguishable from corporations and the MIC. Truly Gov-Corp in every sense of the word: They support and feed each other in their joint and separate quests for power, control, profit, and "total information awareness". This is the beast. And we were warned of it by Eisenhower, by JFK (who was assassinated by the beast), by Orwell, and many other truth-tellers.
Keep your thinking caps on, boys and girls - the years ahead are going to be one crazy-ass ride.
