New Zealand has been a global guinea pig for many new technologies like EFTPOS for example - to see how they work on a small isolated experimental scale. Photographing the iris of the eye, that can be sent digitally to any agency globally is now a reality for all New Zealanders.We in NZ were conned into having biometric facial photographs on our drivers licenses. These can be transmitted globally to other law enforcement and immigration authorities.
It is happening in plain sight for the bulk of the 99.9% of NZers in this country and basically now in the Western World.
This below tells how the NZ National Government, rammed through biometric driver licences for anyone in NZ wanting a licence. This photographic ID is linked up to other global computers and again NZers appear not interested in the consequences of where this may lead.
These two below links are important as they connect the dots to the creeping surveillance and security state. I am fortunate that at my age, I have been to over 60 countries on this miraculous planet and sensed, seen and enjoyed much beauty, and wonder, that the pity of it all, very few seem to grok the serous of our earthly situation. Communicating to parents about their children's future is strangely so darned difficult too. Many of the fathers are AWOL.
