“Iridian Technologies perhaps best known for its role in identifying the mysterious ‘Afghan Girl’ who graced the cover of National Geographic magazine in 1985 sees iris recognition as the growing security tool of everyday people”- South Jersey Courier Post 08-31-04
It seems fitting on the second day the fascists gathered in New York City for the Republican National Convention, the Courier Post a South Jersey newspaper carried a front page story heralding iris recognition technology. Of course the spin is this technology which employs iris biometric technology similar to the one used in the old Star Trek television series and movies is an excellent tool for security.
In the article, an Ocean County school will use the technology to help identify the adults coming to pick up the children as their parents. According to the Courier Post article the program is voluntary. The article focuses on Iridian Technologies a Moorestown New Jersey company that manufactures the Access 3000 a device used to scan the iris to make “positive identifications”.
Naturally in touting the uses of this technology they point out to how wonderful and marvelous it is. For example in Germany the machine is used in a hospital “to prevent baby abductions” (how reassuring) and a Pennsylvania hospital employs it as part of privacy and computer security (no harm in that). Perhaps I’m getting more cynical but articles like this seem so scripted and conspiratorial since the 9-11 Commission started promoting a unified super intelligence agency to spy on US citizens, especially since their final report (blatant whitewash) is currently on the best seller lists. What makes it so obvious is that this technology is being pumped and promoted just as the government and the dutiful corporate media rachet up the fear levels with their periodic color coded terror alerts and predictions of doom and gloom.
This is just the beginning. Iris recognition technology along with fingerprinting and facial recognition will be the predominate modes of personnel identification and authentication. Big brother is alive and well here and now! We see more and more people sporting ID badges everywhere we go, but to a terrified and fear induced populous iris recognition and other forms of biometric “security” will continuously be promoted as the panacea against all the “terrorists and evildoers” lurking behind every bush (pardon the pun) and amidst the shadows. Couple biometric technology with global tracking systems, closed circuit surveillance and we find ourselves on the cusp of George Orwell’s 1984. Of course Big Brother won’t come in the guise of a cunning manipulator or vile oppressor, rather those plotting our enslavement will present themselves as the saviors and protectors of the vulnerable masses.
They will market themselves as the only option standing between safety and security and those mean ruthless al Queda bogeymen bent on destroying our way of life and “civilization”. This game is not new, we’ve experienced this before. Their rap will be similar to the way previous generations shrewdly projected the fear of rape and retribution by “godless heathens” on their unwitting fellow citizens to justify their brutalization of blacks in the South. But close scrutiny reveals it was really depraved white men and frustrated white women who got their kicks and had field days raping black women, castrating and lynching black men! As depraved as the whites are, even they need a rationalization to dupe the masses into going along with their con game. Look for more and more stories like the one in the Courier Post or the recent segment on ABC’s World News Tonight that featured biometric implants. The difference between the ABC piece and this story is that the television segment touted biometrics from a health perspective and the Courier Post story came from the school security, child/parent security recognition angle. Both are part and parcel of an ongoing psychological conditioning campaign in conjunction with the bogus color coded terror alerts and media fear mongering so the masses will clamor for protection from those dirty, nasty “heathens and terrorists” out to get us. Don’t go for the okey-doke!
Don’t let the media and ruling elites play us like that. Are we in danger? Yes, but the danger is from megalomaniacal psychopaths attempting to establish their New World Order. We still are relatively safe and secure. Our biggest foes are of our own household, the ones calling for all this electronic and biometric surveillance, spying and creating wide scale paranoia. So when they come to you suggesting you submit to biometric scans or implants ask why, resist and strenuously record your objections! Things aren’t that bad yet. Yet is the operative word. In case you haven’t noticed none of the terrorist warnings and alerts in the last year or so have materialized or actualized. Quiet as it’s kept if there hadn’t been major collusion and complacency in high government places 9-11 would never have happened either.
