RFID Chips to track kids.

Schools in United Kingdom are starting to train their kids at this young age to feel and act like criminals by tagging their school uniforms with RFID chips. Most people’s behavior patterns are based on how they have been programmed while young.

By inserting these chip in the kids uniforms the children will start feeling like criminals and every little movement of theirs will be recorded. These children will be walking around being paranoid, needlessly feeling guilty about innocent behavior which could be stated as against the school’s policy and start to think and act like criminals. Why should a child’s movement be under surveillance and why should their childhood and innocence be ripped away from them? What happened to the joy of student-teacher relationship, meaning of trust and dependability?

Did the generations before not run schools without using all these gizmo’s and are schools or the students better now then before? No, not really and there are ways around any gadget and the human mind always finds ways to maintain independence and freedom. Like one student mentioned it is easier now to play truant, just ask someone else to carry your shirt.

Next, to overcome that students might be inserted with these RFID chips under their skin. By the way as I had mentioned in one of my earlier posts some companies in the US do that to track the movements of their employees. Now the real question is why should any ordinary citizens movements be tracked for whatever reason and why are we allowing it to happen?
