Michael Hathman Explains How RFID Could Ultimately Limit All Types of Freedoms
But can RFID technology actually pose a threat to the liberties of the people - especially within the framework of a working republic if such a technology were to become widely accepted or mandated by government - especially if the RFID chip were used as the "primary tool" for financial transactions?
I believe that the answer to this question is a resounding "yes" especially for those people who believe in the right to free speech, assembly and the freedom to practice religion as they see so see fit. RFID could ultimately be made to become an "enemy tool" to the freedoms of persons who believe in a free society where free speech is meant to protected, where politics can be freely discussed, and where a person can freely choose to exercise his preferred brand of religion.
Interesting to note, currently all hard money in circulation is approximately 3.0% of all money currently in circulation. If the RFID chip is to be the standard tool for all financial transactions - this would put the liberties of the people at extraordinary risk. Chances are, the bankers would be in control monetarily. If the bankers don't like any particular person carrying a chip, they could, theoretically, the bankers could simply "deactivate" the chip.
Indeed, any person who would be implanted with a chip would be at the mercy of the super elite. Any person who challenges the power of the elite could quickly find themselves in economic dire straights with a deactivated chip. Indeed, any person who challenges the policy holders could find themselves without any meaningful power to challenge this type of establishment or political establishment.
It is my opinion that if such a chip were ultimately widely used and an end was put to the use of hard money cash, the RFID chip would present the greatest single threat to the liberties of the free world.
