Losing the Message in the Face of the Medium
Is this the new face of the American under Real ID?
The United States Congress has adopted a draconian Act to tag every American citizen in a strange way. No matter how much information we pass up to the government just to move from point A to point B, it is simply not enough. The government wants us to give it all; to obtain access to parts of our bodies that we cannot naturally access in order to identify us for the sake of our security.
To put this in perspective, this is like if I have a daughter and I want to protect her virginity and from molestation, so I photograph her hymen before she even reaches puberty.
How does that protect her from molestation?
Most of the states of the Union submit to this ridiculous Act. So today, in the states that comply, if you don’t have your retina scanned, you can forget about driving a car.
Meanwhile at the airports we are being increasingly conditioned to show our wares literally just to board airplanes. But it goes well beyond that. The TSA wants to grope our children right in front of us. Yet they want us to believe they are operating in our interests. We can continue to believe this until it become easier to ID us through our rear ends literally and figuratively. Now if you can’t stand reality and you want to believe that under Real ID your face can still be your face, don’t bother reading the rest of this article. Otherwise tap in.
