The growth in the surveillance state is frightening. Unmanned drones flying overhead watching the every move of the populace below, eye scan technology that can verify the identity of a person in a matter of seconds, surveillance cameras on nearly every corner and in the air, feeding back data to a centralized database.
Many people would say, well as long as I'm not doing anything wrong, what's the problem? Well as Benjamin Franklin once said: "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety".
This coming global surveillance/police state will be a major tool for the future Antichrist to monitor and control the populace of the world. Any person that disagrees with his claims of being a deity will be rounded up and eliminated by force. Utilizing this new surveillance system, this "Man of Sin", will find it very easy to track down those who would oppose him and who would attempt to warn others.
He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. Revelation 13:7 NIV
Is eye scan technology the future of airport security?
Will the airport of the future be able to verify the identity of passengers with a quick eye scan? Aoptix Technologies Inc., a Campbell-based high-tech company, has developed iris scan technology the company hopes can be used by the Transportation Security Administration to verify passenger identification in a matter of seconds. To market, sell and develop such technology, Aoptix announced last week it had acquired $42 million in additional funding from investors, bringing the total amount it has raised to $123 million since it launched in 2000. Aoptix’s scanning technology is already used to identify passengers coming in and out of the international departure lounge at
London’s Gatwick Airport and for border control in Qatar. It has not been used in the U.S., said Aoptix spokeswoman Amanda North. The advantage of the Aoptix technology, she said, is that the scanning device can confirm the identification of a passenger from up to six feet away in about two seconds.
The residents of
Lancaster probably didn't notice it, but a small Cessna aircraft on Friday flew high above the desert city, capturing hours of video and ushering in a new era in law enforcement surveillance. The plane, equipped with sophisticated video equipment, is set fly a loop above the city for up to 10 hours a day, beaming a live video feed of what's going on below to a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department dispatch center. The camera will inevitably pick up scenes of mundane day-to-day life. But officials said they plan to use the video only to track reports of crimes in progress, traffic collisions and other emergency situations.
Brit brother: Drones to watch over
Unmanned police drones, comparable to those used in war zones such as
could soon be secretly watching over the streets of UK cities, according to a National
Police Air Service director. The unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are being
considered to monitor crowded events in Britain, such as concerts and
festivals, as soon as the aerial units become cost-effective. “I see unmanned
systems as part of the future. There is an aircraft over London all the time — every day, giving
images back. Why does it need to be a very expensive helicopter? If somebody
gave me an unmanned system that I could use as I use a helicopter at half the
cost, within the regulations, I would buy it tomorrow.” Superintendent
Richard Watson said in a presentation to the defense industry, reports The
Times. Some police precincts have tried using the remote-controlled system to
curb crime. Now the idea is to implement the drone policy nationwide.
