The principle to selling a bad or dangerous idea is to give it a label to make it sound like something good – i.e. – political correctness.
Democrats changed from using illegal alien because of the negative truth and changed it to undocumented immigrant – oh doesn’t that sound better?
They change socialist to social justice and hey, isn’t for justice?
Science fiction writers have written about futuristic societies that control everything the people do, think and say.
We often equate that to Big Brother as found in George Orwell’s novel – 1984.
Big Brother has been steadily creeping into our society more and more over the past decade especially and now it’s being used in the Atlanta airport by Delta Airlines.
They make it sound so good for travelers, who are unaware of the real hidden dangers of what they opting to do.
The Organic Prepper – Biometric Scanning Has Rolled Out in Atlanta International Airport: “One Look And You’re In” – Atlanta airport’s Terminal F has become the “first biometric terminal” in the United States.
And Detroit is next…
As of December 1, Delta Airlines rolled out biometric scanning for air travel at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), Terminal F.
International passengers will be able to use facial recognition scans from “curb to gate” to get through every facet of their air travel.
While the face scans are lauded as a great way to save time, they really aren’t as you’ll see below.
I’m sure any travel-weary person can think of many ways that air travel could become more convenient and efficient. I mean, one of the strangest paradoxes of our technologically advanced world is that it’s 2018 and air travel is the most miserable experience. It becomes more miserable every year and no one even wants to hear comedians talk about it anymore because miserable air travel is such a foregone conclusion…
Think about it!
Parents are being urged to implant microchips into their kids under the guise that it could help track them if they get lost or stolen.
A growing number of schools are requiring students to have RF cards that electronically keeps all of their personal and school information and can be used to track them within a certain distance.
Our mobile phones, tablets and laptops have GPS devices in them, allowing others with the technological capability to track one’s location and movement.
Companies use various methods to track your internet activity, supposedly so they can target you with ads that match your searches.
America is rapidly becoming a Big Brother society – aka socialist – and all of our privacy will be gone.
