Vending Machines Of The Future (www.myfoxny.com, 11 Aug 2010)
“Next Generation Vending and Food Service is experimenting with biometric vending machines that would allow a user to tie a credit card to their thumbprint….
“The machines include internally mounted cameras to monitor what is going on outside of the machine….
“…machines that use retinal scans to identify and charge consumers for their purchases.”
It is amazing to think how we spend so much time and energy working on and playing with advanced technology, and how great it seems, while at the same time, some of us recognize there is a lot of evil going on: big evils and small evils, things we learn not to complain about, things we never did complain about, and things we learn to ignore.
For most people, talk about freedom, rights, torture, war, and so on, it goes over their heads. The learned rationalizations kick in, the drug-like indoctrinating entertainment kicks in. And they are perfectly focused on their own lives, with their own problems (made impossible by anti-family propaganda and moral relativism).
As far as they’re concerned, someone else in “authority” is looking after everything. “Someone else” certainly is.
High-tech advancements and evil oppression are advancing hand in hand. There is no contradiction.
The elite monopolists who run everything direct our money – from taxes and profits – to the development of their scientific dictatorship, their high-tech bread and circuses, and their high-tech control and surveillance systems. The billion dollar G20 security spending is a perfect example of this.
The point of biometric identification when purchasing is that if you have broken a government dictate, or owe taxes, fines, or private debt, then you can be punished on the spot by having the machine deny your purchase.
And it’s easier to carry out such cruelty through a machine rather than a cashier.
Also, when every type of purchase is biometric and electronic, whether through a check-out counter, or a vending machine, or via your computer and the Internet, then everything you purchase can be monitored, and your location can also be monitored.
The point of cash is that you don’t have to identify yourself, and you can do what you want with it (after taxes). It’s not easy, without cash, for example, to help a hungry person who has strayed from the system and wants to be free. But in a controlled cashless society, most people he approached, indoctrinated through education and media, would likely send him back to the work camp.
If you see machines like this, boycott them and complain.
