Government Has Found Yet Another Way to Track Us Like Animals

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), the leading nonprofit organization defending civil liberties in the digital world, has been filing public records requests to find out how law enforcement agencies are using mobile biometric technology (which includes facial recognition, digital fingerprinting, and iris scanning) to identify people based on their physical and behavioral characteristics.

As part of their investigation, EFF uncovered some disturbing information: they found that the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST), one of the oldest federal scientific institutions, began an initiative in 2014 to promote and refine automated tattoo recognition technology for the FBI.

Why is this concerning?

    In another 20 years everybody will have a chip. Implanted at birth. Will control your whole life. Pays your retail bills interfaced with your bank by RFID at the checkout. The GPS chip will automatically issue you speeding/parking tickets with no cops involved. Disables your car if your blood alcohol is too high. Reports you to the Man if you show opiates. Having the chip illegally removed will carry very heavy penalties. The Man will use the lamestream media to gradually make it socially unacceptable and politically incorrect to resist this measure “for the common good”. If you resist you will be a pariah. An outcast. No chip – no life. They’ll have you by the balls.
