In this regard, I came across a couple of articles that I found to be disturbing to say the least.
This one justifies fingerprinting four year olds in order to borrow a library book or to pay for a school meal. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/educationnews/7771112/Children-as-young-as-4-to-be-fingerprinted-to-borrow-school-books.html
They allege that the information is not stored. If this is the case, how would they know who has to return the book? Or to whom to charge the meal? Clearly, it must be stored and the claim that it isn't stored is a lie.
Furthermore, why is this even necessary? People have had library cards for decades. Parents have been paying for school meals for decades with cash or checks. Why is this no longer sufficient?
This starts with library books and meals, but as with everything else, the statists won't stop there. This will at some point progress throughout all facets of their lives, until such time as one needs to be fingerprinted in order to process any transaction no matter how tiny. The statist will have full control of everyone and their lives are no longer their own.
While this may be occurring in the UK and you may think it couldn't happen in America, think again. The statists are subtlety taking baby steps, proceeding inconspicuously to achieve their goal of a new world order.
Two years ago, a school in Rhode Island began microchipping students' schoolbags, and they did it without any one's permission.
"Because the pilot program is being provided to the school district at no cost, it did not require approval from the Rhode Island ethics commission."http://rinf.com/alt-news/sicence-technology/us-school-district-to-begin-microchipping-students/3886/
The "at no cost" claim is also a lie. Nothing is free. Someone is paying for it. Regardless of whether it is indirectly the taxpayers via taxes, or investors, or the statists, this doesn't make it acceptable.
Since when is the right to liberty able to be infringed upon by using a justification that it is "no cost"? Where is that in the Constitution?
Communist nations may provide "free" services to their enslaved citizens but that does not make them more free. Rather it leaves them without any liberty at all. No liberty is the ultimate goal of the statists. Beware of those bearing "free" gifts, as it really isn't free at all, and the cost to you will be high.
