Nothing like treating people like animals to be tagged and tracked
. Of course, it's much easier to start by tracking kids because they don't have much choice in the matter and when they grow up, they'll be less resistant to the practice. Enter surveillance society…
But let's not get ahead of ourselves. They portray the tests as successful, but as Bruce Schneier points out
, "So now it's easy to cut class; just ask someone to carry your shirt around the building while you're elsewhere."
Or how about, "it's easy to get someone you hate in trouble by wearing their uniform for a few minutes while vandalizing the teacher's lounge."
Or "We had no idea that constantly bombarding students with radio frequencies in closed spaces during their formative years would lead to these kinds of mutations
! Mrs. Johnson, you can't honestly expect us to pay to have Timmy's third arm removed can you?"
I love how companies start implementing RFID without any thought to the consequences
