While I hadn't forgotten about this invasion
neither had I been following it too closely.... so a bit of an update I guess...

This is from the FAQ.

Q: Is it true there are plans to put RFID chips in Euro banknotes?

A: Hitachi has been working with the European Central Bank on the idea of putting RFID chips into Euro banknotes. This would eliminate the anonymity of cash by making it trackable. In essence, it would "register" your cash to you when you get it from the teller or take it out of the ATM. Euro banknotes could be RFID tagged as early as 2005.

Were you listening to Coast to Coast? I just heard the tail end of the show talking about this.

I thought it was very interesting that moving to a national sales tax and eliminating the income tax would make this more tempting for the government to use. That's a real bummer since I favor moving to the fair tax system.

Yup. And like you, caught only the last few minutes and decided to look at the page. I didn't realize but am pleased to see there is some 'reasoned' and reasonable pressure being applied.

One of her comments that I found most disconcerting is that younger people (generally) don't seem to be terribly concerned with the potential abuse of these devices... commenting that younger people don't seem to hold privacy a dear as some of us 'older' ;d folk.

Perhaps younger people already know that "privacy" is an antiquated luxury that they cannot expect to have in their lives?

Of course, many of yuor purchases are already quite well tracked, whether through your bank card, checks, super-saver-club-cards, detatiled customer info at various types of businesses, etc...

Of course, explaining how the prostitute gave your money to the drug dealer who bought a new stolen gun with it and then the gun dealer is really the one who spent it on the chemical weapons is a hassle I'd rather not have to deal with
