Now There's a Spy You Can Swallow

We've reported on tracking chips inside your clothes and inside Canadian money (not to mention cell phones!), but now IBM, the company that built the early computers that were used by the Nazis (NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to this show) to identify and track Jews and eventually send them to extermination camps, has now developed a radio frequency identification chip so tiny that it can be introduced into food. It is attempting to sell this technology all over the world, to all potential customers, without regard for privacy.

The chips enable tracking of the movements of persons consuming them, and will remain active until they are evacuated from the body. These "tags" will monitor your calorie intake, show where your food came from, and even let you know when the food in your refrigerator is about to go bad. The system is being marketed as something to help the consumer eat better, but we suspect it's just another way to keep track of what consumers are doing so big business can market its products more effectively. And who knows what could be done with this technology if it got into the wrong hands again.

And we must not forget that when the Master of the Key burst into Whitley Strieber's hotel room in 1998, one of the things he told him was that we are stuck on this planet because the parents of the child who would have given us the ability to travel into space was killed in the holocaust! The new, UNCENSORED edition of The Key, with a foreword that talks about how many of his statements later turned out to be true, is in bookstores NOW (and subscribers can still listen to this show too!)
