I read an article on a site, Bring Me The News, concerning the breadth of the card security at the Target corporation just before Christmas.
Consider for a moment the possibility that this is a manufactured crisis for the purpose of managing the outcome. Perhaps the manufactured crisis may be a step too far, but that does not eliminate the idea of the outcome being dictated for specific purposes.
It was Rahm Emanuel who let the cat out of the bag when he said, "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before."
So it is not a big leap to think that "for our security" the system must be changed and the merchants will need to absorb the cost of change through the replacement of all of the card readers and scanners to use the smart card system. Society is being chipped and like boiling a frog in a pot, it begins with a simmer and is slowly brought to a boil.
We have been conditioned to use the cards and now we are being chipped. For now we will carry the chip with us. It is a small step to having the chip on us and another small step from there to having the chip in us. It may sound like a bit of a conspiracy theory, but each of the steps are already in place in various arenas. As much as we like to think that our society has the most cutting edge technology, the U.S. may actually be lagging behind other parts of the world regarding smart cards, smart chips and the like. Regardless of how progressive we like to think we are, there is still a resistance to change, especially when there is a large cost involved.
If you would like to examine this further, the series "The Final Countdown" by Pastor Billy Crone explains in detail many of these technology changes and their effects on the world we live in. If you believe in the coming tribulation and the judgment of God, this series will get you thinking and motivate you to live for Christ now, knowing what is to come. If you do not believe in the coming tribulation and judgment of God, this series is informative on the technology and interesting in what is going on in the world. The series is a year or two old, so keep in mind that things have continued to progress toward the end goals of a one world government, a one world economy and a one world religion.
Whether individuals and governments are aware of the end game or not, they continue to move down the road of globalism. Technology has made the world a smaller place. Crisis management will unite the world, almost always under the guise of our safety and security.
