Your Papers, Comrade!


One of the primary tenets of the "conspiracy theory" sphere of the internet concerning the New World Order, is the idea that the elites who are striving inexorably towards a one world government, and that all the masses will eventually be tagged, cataloged and registered into a central database that will have implications that reach into every facet of our lives.

As the Biblical prophesy concerning the Number of the Beast in the Book of Revelations:

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.


If you look at the Wikipedia page I linked to for Number of the Beast, you'll see the majority of the content regarding this passage is concerned with the actual number 666 and possible translations have mistaken that for the originally intended 616. Does the actual number itself really matter?

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast...

This is about CONTROLLING mankind by ID. I think the number itself is really just an allegory here...it's the basic idea that is most important aspect of this scripture to ponder!

Why do you think the banks, and many large corporations are pushing more and more people to use debit cards? Why they've made it the ultimate convenience tool to use? The more people use debit cards, the more they're financial transactions are easily traceable!

Whether you believe in "conspiracy theory" or not, you must look at what has been going on in the past generation in which Government entities have been working towards the goal of having a uniformly IDENTIFIED populace.

I believe this is the true rationale behind the imposition of a federally mandated drinking age of 21. (Note - this is just a theory of mine, I haven't read that anywhere else, I have no proof - it's just my own thoughts developed from trying to decipher the incremental approach to social engineering being used on the masses.)

People who have traveled in other countries in which the drinking age is much lower (if there is one at all) can quite easily see how a relaxed societal attitude towards alcohol usually results in a society for which drunken debauchery is generally disapproved of, how responsible drinking is the norm, and that all of the supposed chaos and problems that would result from having a lowered drinking age in America are usually not evident in most countries outside of the USA.

One can also see the most apparent contradiction in the drinking age policy when it comes to military service and suffrage. You mean society says your adult enough to vote...and sign up for military service to go and kill and be killed in foreign lands when you're 18...but still three years away from being mature enough to handle drinking alcohol?

This simply does not pass a cursory examination based on objective, common sense.

So why, than? Put on your tin foil hat for a moment and consider the "conspiracy" angle:

- We now have an entire generation of Americans that have grown up in a society in which a fairly common behavior throughout all of human history like social drinking has been regulated by Federal, State and County authorities. To now have a few drinks for recreation, you must line up, and submit your identification for scrutiny to enter an establishment that serves alcohol or purchase some from a grocery store or market.

- We now have an entire generation of Americans conditioned to the idea that they cannot wait to reach the age of 21 so they can eagerly obtain a government ID to prove their eligibility to enter an establishment or buy from their local grocery/liquor stores.

Seen from that angle, the Federally mandated raising of the Drinking age in the late 1980's to 21 now makes perfect sense!

Another idea for tagging We the Sheeple so we can be cataloged and tracked, is to store our individual, unique bio-metrics in a centralized database.

This, is also why I suspect their is such a huge push being done to pass "universal" health care. It's not about "caring" for everybody. It's about creating the impetus to justify the creation of a large, central database of the average citizen's medical records, indexed to their SSN's. Just one more way to advance the primary goal to tag and track We the Sheeple.

From Against Simple Universal Healthcare:

The SSN was created in support of the social security program of the Federal Government in the 1930’s. Originally limited in use to recording individual ontributions to the social security plan, its approved Federal use has been broadened to identifying taxpayers and their tax transactions, civil service employment, Defense Department personnel, recipients of some forms of public assistance, and other functions. In addition, states use the SSN for their own tax-related records, and many also index drivers’ licenses, motor vehicle registration, and criminal history to the same identifier. Non-government uses include records holding an individual’s history of employment, insurance, credit, and education. If current trends continue, health records will join this list.

With growing interoperability of database systems, we are getting close to the time when a single SQL query can, at not very great cost, find a selection of individuals based on any or all of the characteristics indexed by the SSN listed above. To anyone who values privacy even slightly, this is a frightening prospect.


Rest assured, those that would Tag and Track us are not betting all their efforts on duping the populous to accept "universal healthcare." No...there looking for other ways to get our bio-metrics recorded...

Have a look at these two recent articles:


Judge: Police Can Forcibly Take DNA Samples Upon Arrest


Obama Supports DNA Sampling Upon Arrest

Note that this is UPON ARREST. Not conviction...merely arrested! Based on that alone, any man falsely accused of domestic violence as a simple divorce tactic as advised by his divorcing wife's attorney, will than be subject to an involuntary collection of his DNA.

I do believe the pattern is clear. Our government agencies and their agents have slowly but surely working towards collecting our information and working towards a Brave New World Order where we the Sheeple are all tagged, databased and easily tracked, controlled and manipulated.

Think THIS type of scenario is really that far fetched?

We are certainly moving closer to this sort of thing becoming our new reality.

Why do you think the banks, and many large corporations are pushing more and more people to use debit cards? Why they've made it the ultimate convenience tool to use? The more people use debit cards, the more they're financial transactions are easily traceable!

I think they're pushing them because those transactions are more profitable for banks and corporations than cash transactions. The bank or credit / debit card issuer gets a piece of the action every time you use the card, plus they charge interest and fees on the outstanding balance which most everybody has.

In terms of identification and control, they had our asses a long time ago. Very few people work for cash / barter. The vast majority are paid through an employer who complies with the law that they have to tell the government how much you make, and take the tax out up front. Why should the government care what you spend your money on, so long as they get their cut up front, as they do?

I must say I was a little creeped out when my son was born and they issued him a social security card immediately. Doesn't matter that he's not going to work for well over a decade... he's got his SSN now.

I believe this is the true rationale behind the imposition of a federally mandated drinking age of 21.

The driver's license is much more important. You can easily avoid drinking; damn near impossible to avoid driving.

People who have traveled in other countries in which the drinking age is much lower (if there is one at all) can quite easily see how a relaxed societal attitude towards alcohol usually results in a society for which drunken debauchery is generally disapproved of,

You mean like Russia? =)

It is an artifact of the whole temperance movement. The Christian Right is still strong enough in this country to push for it, and is not strong enough to do so in other countries.

We now have an entire generation of Americans that have grown up in a society in which a fairly common behavior throughout all of human history like social drinking has been regulated by Federal, State and County authorities.

OK, but alcohol in other countries is still heavily regulated even if the drinking age is 18. They definitely card you in Europe.

We now have an entire generation of Americans conditioned to the idea that they cannot wait to reach the age of 21 so they can eagerly obtain a government ID to prove their eligibility to enter an establishment or buy from their local grocery/liquor stores.

And the difference between that and them conditioning people to wait for age 18 is what?

I reached 18 before they changed the age to 21 (yeah, I'm old). I remember everyone eagerly waiting for their 18th birthday so they were legal to buy a drink in a bar. Moving the age to 21 did not change that, and moving it back to 18 would not change that. As I said, it's really about the hangover from the temperance movement, plus a good dose of feminist nannying from the MADD types.

This is all true...how else do you motivate the banks to promote converting everyone to a cashless society?

In terms of identification and control, they had our asses a long time ago. Very few people work for cash / barter. The vast majority are paid through an employer who complies with the law that they have to tell the government how much you make, and take the tax out up front. Why should the government care what you spend your money on, so long as they get their cut up front, as they do?

The point is CONTROL. Once we move towards a completely cashless society, it's a mere formality for any government authority to freeze your debit account...and you have NO recourse but black market barter.

You mean like Russia?

Russia is a much different story. They've endured generations of historical oppression and the literal State promotion of alcoholism to keep the masses oppressed, depressed and complacent. The UK, France, Spain etc. all have a much looser legal AND social attitude regarding drinking...and you don't see the epidemic "frat" styled drunkenness as the social norm for new people.

Furthermore, you still haven't addressed the fundamental contradiction in societal recognition of maturity. It's the biggest bunch of garbage to say a young person old enough to kill and die for their country, but they can't have a beer?

Speaking for myself, I was 14 years old when they changed the drinking age in HI from 18 to 21. Prior to the change, things were FAR looser and less regulated...most bars and other places didn't even card anyone unless a teenager was obviously very young looking.

Aside from all that, every single point you made has validity...but none of your points are mutually exclusive to the "big picture" theory. One of the ways to reach a certain objective is to create a system for which multiple parties have a strong incentive to promote a certain policy - profitability of debit card transactions, using the temperance movement, etc.

Anyhow, I may be completely wrong here...just theorizing. But thing is for certain, I do believe the Government has been working a long time towards getting every citizen identified and registered.

This has been a recurring theme that people capable of quoting scripture should know better than to perpetuate.

The taking is the mark is an irrevocable and deliberate claim of allegiance with the anti-Christ, not an administrative or legally required ID protocol. The two are not even in the same ballpark.

This is true even if you have to have this "ID" to buy and sell legally. The Germans in WW2 made all kinds of buying and selling illegal for Jews and it was a crime to do business with them. Hitler = Evil, but still not the anti-Christ. No end times, no rapture.

Contrast this to the mark that believers will also have. It is a mark placed on them by God to mark his own. The church will not be roaming about creating these marks. It is a spiritual device. The same is true for the other mark.

Further, no believer today need fear accidentally taking the mark (it must be deliberate anyway) because believers will be raptured before then. Therefore, anyone who definitely does not want the mark and is alive today, will definitely not get one because he will not be on the Earth when it is offered.

There are 198 recognized nation states on the Planet. Most of them have some form of national ID. The addition of an American national ID brings us no closer of further away from the "mark".

Interesting take Professor. That seems to me to be a literalinterpretation of the scripture.

I make no claims to being a biblical scholar...but it seems to me that the entire book of revelations is highly allegorical rather than a literal prophecy.

Furthermore, I think it is in fact a warning...and that the 'Beast' "is a human number" really refers to the anti-christ being the utter rejection of God, and the elevation of MAN as the object of worship...i.e. secular humanism.

I don't know - I think the continual escalation of the efforts through a myriad of ways to get us marked, ID'd and cataloged to be particularly insidious and devious.

I concede that I could very well be far off in my interpretation here.

They can do that now, if they want. Most people would be completely screwed if it happened.

I think that was a done deal a long time ago. The number of citizens who are "off the books" - not in any government identification / registry bank - has to be vanishingly small, and has been for a long time.

I agree with your take on Revelation. It must surely be among the least understood, if for no other reason than it is the least understandable. I expect that events may someday unfold that will make it all clear. Until then, I am willing to admit I just don't know and am not willing to order my life around something I do not understand. The gospels, on the other hand, are pretty clear.
