The Mark of the Statists . . . for Now

Technology has abolished time and space a the traditional basis of governance. A new form has to emerge and with more actors. . . . The moment is coming when it will be clear to all, in particular to us-friends and members of the Trilateral Commission— that the best, maybe the only, way to defend the interests, traditions, and hopes we cherish will be to place them resolutely within the context offered by the disciplines and opportunities of a genuine world order, genuine because created and recognized by all as fair and legitimate (emphasis mine).[1]

So says George Berthoin, former European Chair of the Trilateral Commission. To him and others like him technology is now the prime mover as a basis of governance. This statist-speak is nothing less than the veiled stratagem of global statist path to a one-world, socialized government.

Berthoin blatantly states that the traditional basis of governance needs to be abolished and it is the interests, traditions, and hopes they cherish that should now be promulgated. In other words, global socialism with a few mushy-brained tyrants (can you say U.N. or worse) ruling.

But how do you implement this in real-time? It is done by controlling people and peoples’ movements.

The Apostle John in the book of Revelation gives this alarming warning:

Also it [the Beast or False Prophet] causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name (Rev. 13: 16, 17; ESV).

It must be understood that while the language in most apocalyptic books of  the Bible are metaphorical, the message is literal. What better way to control people’s lives than to not allow them to purchase the necessities of life, unless, they kowtow to your decrees and dictates? I know what some of you are thinking—this is just end time, conspiracy speculation. Stay with me a bit longer.

Maybe you are a person who doesn’t put a lot of stock in the Bible. Okay then let me highlight some timely, empirical evidence for you.

For starters let’s look at the culture. I began this article with a quote by George Berthoin that underscores where the global statists (socialists) in the world want to take us; are taking us. Make no mistake; the people that make up the Trilateral Commission are powerful men and women from governments and industries all over the world.

Secondly looking at the popular culture which, I chronicled in Before the Final Trump is also instructive:

In American culture, it used to be that tattoos were found only on military men or the tattooed lady on display at the passing carnival.  The only piercing was done to ladies ears and the odd gypsy.   Women rarely bore tattoos, and men hardly ever wore earrings.  That is not true today is it?  People’s distaste to being stabbed and needled has lessened greatly.  You are as likely to see a tattoo on a teenage girl, as on a teen boy and the same may be said of piercings: eyebrows, noses, ears, lips, chin, tongues, belly button—sometimes all at the same time![2]

This is not merely an American phenomenon; it is pretty much a worldwide phenomenon.

Lastly let us look at this from the technological viewpoint. It is presently RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chip technology. It has been used in livestock and pets to tally and monitor how many and where they are. RFID’s have been inserted into whales to track their wanderings.

Some years ago Wal-Mart started using RFID’s to inventory and track merchandise, even after it was purchased. However unlike the chips used by retailers which activate only when scanned by a reader, these chips contain batteries and actively broadcast a continuous signal.

Could this be used for more sinister and oppressive purposes?

The answer is an emphatic YES!

Indeed the very thing Revelation 13 speaks of is currently being played out on a small scale–a trial balloon has been launched.

Since October 1, students at John Jay High School and Anson Jones Middle School in San Antonio, Texas, have been asked to attend class with photo ID cards equipped with radio-frequency identification (RFID) chips to track every pupil’s location (RT.com, Oct. 10, 2012).

This sounds like students are merely being requested to wear the RFID cards, but that is not the case. In fact, students who refuse to keep the RFID cards on their person are being barred from participating in certain school functions. Some students are turned away from common areas like cafeterias and libraries and some reportedly threatened with suspension, fines, or involuntary transfer.

But there’s more . . . the students are not allowed to vote for Homecoming King and Queen. World Net Daily (WND.com) reports that “Andrea Hernandez  told them . . . “I had my old student ID card which they originally told us would be good for the entire four years we were in school. He said I needed the new ID with the chip in order to vote.”

The stated goal, according to the government sanctioned school district is to keep an accurate tally of students attending class and help curb truancy. This is nonetheless, way over the line in America.

What is the next step? Yes Virginia there is a next step.

Infowars.com is reporting that Neelie Kroes, EU’s Digital Agenda Commissioner is introducing legislation that will force “the adoption of harmonised e-signatures, e-identities and electronic authentication services (eIAS) across EU member states.”

Even as you read this post,

The European Union is now moving to create a mandatory electronic ID system for all EU citizens that would be implemented across Europe to standardize business both online and in person, authenticating users via a common ‘electronic signature.’ A single authenticating ID would guard access to the Internet, online data and most commerce.

World Net Daily reports that the U.S. government in a,

Government-sponsored research project eerily reminiscent of the 2002 film “Minority Report,” the Army’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has partnered with Carnegie-Mellon University to create “an artificial intelligence (AI) system that can watch and predict what a person will likely do in the future. Tapping into live surveillance video feeds and using specially programmed software, a new computer system dubbed “Mind’s Eye” will filter surveillance footage to support human operators, and automatically alert them whenever suspicious behavior is recognized.

Of course the immediate question that pops into mind is, “who defines suspicious behavior?” Not just words, but also acceptable behavior is already being redefined. Case in point, the battle to redefine marriage as not just between one man and one woman.

This very short video is instructive.

The sine qua non or point of all this, is that this is where the elite statist want to take us and the ultimate ramifications are clear; total control of people under control of a tyrannical system like that found in tyrannical dictatorships worldwide–or worse just like the coming world system prophesied in the Bible.

What I mean to demonstrate here is a “good news, bad news” kind of thing. The bad news is that time is winding down. We cannot stop it, these events are preordained by God. What is prophesied in Daniel and Revelations will take place!

That is also the good news, at least for the Christian; the disciple of Jesus Christ, it is indeed, very good news.
