More About Electronic Stalking in America by Jr. John Longenecker
In 1973, the United States Patent Office granted patent number 3,713,148 to Mario Cardullo for a tiny passive transponder non-volatile in memory and operated remotely. Several RFID patents have been granted since. Electronic Stalking is aptly named...and the subtitle a frightening warning. Domestic Stealth Surveillance of Americans is a growth industry, and irrespective of announced intentions and assurances, the results will be tormenting as immense databases emerge as the last word in evidence, references, profiling, and as predictors against the word of the Citizen. "The nightmare is not in finding out who you are, whole industries already know that," cites author John Longenecker, "It's in who you must become in pressures to conform, or otherwise be labeled anti-social, bigoted, isolationist, or even dangerous." The danger is in new public/private partnerships of increasing mandated conformity in America allegedly against Crime and Violence. Longenecker asks: "Is this where crime is fought? Why will inaccused citizens need permission to buy food or fuel?" Longenecker sees a new political formula: Describe a Crisis, freeze citizens out of reconciling the crisis, and impose a new mandated conformity where citizens are forced into utter dependency on agencies for everything. This means billions to the new hi-tech industries. "The success of all electronic stealth surveillance depends entirely on the defamation, undermining and substitution of Privacy and Citizen Authority. The entire future of RFID, DNA Registries, National ID Card and worldwide file-keeping datasharing depends on our patiently excusing surveillance's less-than-perfect assurances while enduring their flawless job of what is not boasted to the public." With Internet Search Terms. A must read for every head of household.
