How would you like to have a fake set of fingerprints? Sounds like every privacy advocates wet dream right? Wrong!
Sunday, finally off from work. My arms are killing me, and I still have a mess of things to do. Been prepping all week. Not prepping as in survival preparedness, prepping as finish coating drywall. It is another reminder for me that I tend to need muscles for one thing, that I don't normally use for other things I do more often. Time to buy a gym set I guess.
Today I talked to my Dad via that great VOIP service by dolphintel like I do every Sunday. (yes, that was a plug for the company, I have a great deal with them so I plug them often, I want them to stay in business for my own benefit) We got to talking as is our usual manner about odds and ends. One of the topics that came is something I should pass onto all of you out there. But before I do, a little background.
One of the reasons I am a 'prepper'/'survivalist' is because of my religious upbringing. I was raised in an evangelical christian home, Pentecostal to be specific, and one of the common sermons by Pastor Hudson Hilsden (PAOC), was about the end times and the mark of the beast.
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
When I was doing a research report on privacy issues as an information broker a few years ago, I came across a product called “Digital Angel”, it immediate stuck me as the greatest threat to personal privacy. An implantable RFID chip that could be tracked by satellite and be used to cover everything in your wallet scared the crap out of me. That is, until now.
There is a new company that is the enemy of every liberty seeking free individual on the planet. It's called Somark. Funny it should have the name MARK in it's name. Sometimes I wonder if the people involved in these Nazi like inventions are even aware of how evil it sounds, but what can I say, there is for example a real Skynet anyway. So what is worse then an implantable RFID chip? How about an RFID invisable ink tattoo?
So I sit here, wondering about all the things that go wrong when a corporation or government get involved with personal liberties and think. Heh, wish it was already 80 days from now. I can not wait to get off the grid, and onto the farm.
