David Mikkelson says: “The EAN-13 barcode system is used in 85 countries, making it the most popular product scanning system of its kind in the world. It works by representing numbers as a series of seven vertical lines. Each of the seven lines is either black or white, and the sequence of lines forms a pattern which is recognized as a particular digit when scanned by a computer. Every product is assigned a unique thirteen-digit number (ten digits for the product itself, a check digit, and a couple of flag characters to indicate which organization assigned the number).”
But, is it just “product scanning” that barcoding is noted for? Right now, at least, it is. But, under the control of a theoretical New World Order, there might be another kind of “product” that gets barcoded. It is nothing less than us: the human race. Science-fiction author Elizabeth Moon told the BBC in 2012: “I would insist on every individual having a unique ID permanently attached – a barcode if you will – an implanted chip to provide an easy, fast inexpensive way to identify individuals.”
As well as stating that such a program should go ahead, Moon suggests that the coding should begin at birth. She added: “Having such a unique barcode would have many advantages. In war soldiers could easily differentiate legitimate targets in a population from non-combatants. This could prevent mistakes in identity, mistakes that result in the deaths of innocent bystanders. Weapons systems would record the code of the use, identifying how fired which shot and leading to more accountability in the field. Anonymity would be impossible as would mistaken identity making it easier to place responsibility accurately, not only in war but also in non-combat situations far from the war.”
The New York Daily News says on this emotive and sinister issue: “The proposal isn’t too far-fetched – it is already technically possible to ‘barcode’ a human – but does it violate our rights to privacy?” The answer is: yes, of course it does!
The American Civil Liberties Union says of this inflammatory affair: “To have a record of everywhere you go and everything you do would be a frightening thing. Once we let the government and businesses go down the road of nosing around in our lives, we’re going to quickly lose all our privacy.”
Inquirer.net echoes these concerns: “The idea of implanting a microchip into a person, whose personal identity data and sensitive private information are on the chip (which could also pinpoint the exact real-time location of the wearer) is creating a lot of controversy. There is concern among various sectors of society that this ‘human bar coding’ would curtail individual civil liberties and violate the person’s constitutional freedom and right to privacy, confidentiality, security and safety. There is also the fear that this technology could be used by unscrupulous people or criminals, by competing corporations, or even by some agencies in the government, for illegal information gathering or surveillance, or for some immoral objectives.”
Each and every one should say “No!” to this Orwellian crap.
