A totalitarian’s wet dream: Iris scanning of every man, woman and child.
“Authorized” persons will be allowed to buy, sell, travel, eat. Unauthorized persons will be denied (everything apparently).
“Every person, place, and thing on this planet will be connected [to the iris system] within the next 10 years,”
Except that it won’t do anything except create a dystopian nightmare. And it will be relatively easy to defeat. You can start by smashing these devices to smithereens wheresoever they are found.
An over-dependence upon electronic technology has always been defeated with low-tech solutions. But I won’t go into that right now. What really pisses me off is these idiots honestly think they’re doing us a favor. They’re much too stupid to realize that treating humans like cattle will never work.
Technologists (and totalitarians) believe that we need such tracking, and that humanity will not be safe without it (and until we have it). Undoubtedly, most humans will go along with this being the herd animals that they are. The “herd bull” will declare it necessary and essential and they’ll meekly submit. But if you do — let me warn you — you will FOREVER lose your freedoms.
If the corpocracy and / or the government ever gets this technology is wide-spread acceptance, your world will change at a very fundamental level very quickly and not for the better. This is of course, Mark-Of-The-Beast technology and apocalyptic nightmare material, but beyond that connotation, here’s what will happen:
Unauthorized persons will be denied everything — food, water, medical care, travel, the ability to buy or sell, or be branded as an “undesirable” by a system that like America’s “no fly list”, impossible to get off of. In other words, you will in fact, be screwed for life, for your entire life, which as far as you are concerned, that means forever. Eternity will take on a whole new meaning as what is really happening to you will be impossible to stop. It will be a living nightmare that only death will release you from.
The reason is the goal is to create categories of preferred persons. An “upstanding citizen” will be a model of brainwashed behavior.
You will have no opinions, no dangerous “party” affiliations or politics, no outstanding traffic tickets, perfect credit history, a dutiful worker-bee slave for the corporations, pay your taxes scrupulously and on time, contribute to the right groups, eat the right food, drink only in moderation, living an “authorized life” in accordance to your programmed brainwashing. You would even buy exactly what you are told — something Americans actually do right now, but aren’t bright enough to realize it.
Read the article. Notice the marketing angle. The “revolution” being hyped will be on YOU.
For such a Big Brother-esque system, why would any law-abiding resident ever volunteer to scan their irises into a public database, and sacrifice their privacy? GRI hopes that the immediate value the system creates will alleviate any concern. “There’s a lot of convenience to this–you’ll have nothing to carry except your eyes,” says Carter, claiming that consumers will no longer be carded at bars and liquor stores. And he has a warning for those thinking of opting out: “When you get masses of people opting-in, opting out does not help. Opting out actually puts more of a flag on you than just being part of the system. We believe everyone will opt-in.”
They want to make you meat. Meat that buys, sells, consumes, obeys, slaves and breeds exactly as you’re told. Meat that works when it’s told, does what it’s told, buys what it’s told. Meat the obeys, submits and responds exactly as it is programmed. By tracking everything that you do (and I mean everything), this will give these techno-facists monsters unbelievable control over your life.
If that is not a nightmare, I don’t know what is.
This propaganda that we need more “security” is bullshit, through and through. The only thing we need security from is from corpocrapacy and government intrusion. The incessant, constant “terror” card is so tattered and overblown that if this were a poker game, we’d shoot the cheat on the spot that keeps trying to play it.
But we’re all fools, so we don’t. We keep going along with this slop, gobbling it up and letting these tyrants shove more of their useless shit down our throats. We’re now so satiated with this stinking garbage that our obesity threatens our very lives.
This trial-city may be taking place in Mexico — but that’s right next door people. The technology is already being used in America, but no city-wide sweeps are taking place (yet).
If you want to work for a company that requires positive I.D., more power to you. But if you want to force this upon every man, woman and child on this planet, essentially governing how they may live and exist day-to-day, you’d better be prepared to go to war, because that is exactly what is going to happen.
