BBC. Barcode Babies. Then We Can Kill People More Responsibly.

Elizabeth Moon 

Hi Tap,

Off-topic (apologies) but an interesting article from the BBC, from a link which is UNAVAILABLE in the UK because it is on a site run by BBC Worldwide – the commercial arm which gets a chunk of funding from the EU: (says sci-fi writer Elizabeth Moon)

If I were empress of the Universe 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.

It would be imprinted on everyone at birth. Point the scanner at someone and there it is.

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 who 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.

They never run stuff like this in the lamestream media without a reason.

It is, perceptively, linked to the microchipping material that you have covered recently and the NSA data center at this article:

John Galt’s Blog writes –

All of this adds up to an Orwellian nightmare. The people in control of the system are dying to know everything you do, not because they think you are dangerous, but because they are interested in power, and knowledge, in this case a detailed profile of a “person of interest”, is power. All those with power want more power, and will stop at nothing to attain that power. RFID is one giant step closer to hegemonic dominance.

Just say NO.

    There is a built in assumption that war is an inevitable part of life and innocent deaths are also inevitable. This has certainly become so normal that we forget there may be an alternative. The response to that BBC article is why don’t we look at getting rid of war, then the author might not see any need for microchipping.

    You can almost see how people could be sold this idea, will be begging for it even, as we have more and more news stories of innocent people being killed by police, by soldiers. Because they are mistaken for someone else, or because they are in the way, so we are told. Problem, reaction, solution at work again!

    It’s all by consent, as usual, so Just Say No.

    Since I observed that the robot proof thing nearly always takes two goes, no matter what you type, it is now working first go nearly every time! To me this shows how simply exposing something actually changes it! Has anyone else had this experience with the robot proof?
