What follows in an excerpt from an article by Texe Marrs, who gives us the big picture about MARC cards. The full text of the article is available at the Power of Prophecy website: Project L.U.C.I.D. Thunders Ahead --------------------------------- And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. ù Luke 21:28 Texe Marrs The shadow government's sinister plan to minutely control our daily lives via a global, beast computer network has recently made astonishing advances. The high tech noose is quickly being tightened around the necks of the citizenry. President Bill Clinton announced last October 10th that the government wants every home in the United States to have a computer and be linked on the internet. Trumpeting a new, $500 million government initiative to launch this idea, Clinton made it seem a noble thing as he remarked, "Let us reach for a goal in the 21st century of every home connected to the internet, and let us be brought closer together as a community through that connection." The Cyclops Eye of Big Brother ------------------------------ Brought closer, indeed! The goal is to bind us all together as 21st century slaves under the watchful, electronic, cyclops eye of Big Brother. Project L.U.C.I.D. thunders ahead! The National Security Agency (NSA) has now established a consortium of computer hardware and software corporations to further develop this unified control. Under the system about to be launched, no individual in the world will be able to access a computer without his or her Universal Biometrics I.D. Card. Big Brother wants to keep all patriots, nationalists, constitutionalists, fundamentalist Christians, and other supposed "discontents" off the internet. Working the internet and getting their message out exposing the New World Order will no longer be allowed. The scheme to require the Universal Biometrics I.D. Card for computer access was first revealed in an article in The European newspaper (29 Aug.-4 Sept. 1996, pg. 21). The article explained that Acorn Computer Group, based in England; Oracle Software, a California software giant; and Things That Think, a Massachusetts-based, high technology research and development outfit, are working on this project, along with "40 other companies representing a cross-section of the world's business community." The people behind this massive development project envision that soon, every home will become a "cyberhome." Neal Gershenfeld, speaking for the consortium of companies, put it this way: "In the not so distant future, intelligence will be imbedded throughout the home and the people who live there." "The intelligence," says Gershenfeld, "will be in the objects and devices that inhabit the home." But the master control unit, the article notes, is the home computer, tied in with a global link. Every home and apartment will have a central computer, and nothing will happen in a home unless the owner first gets the O.K. to use the home's intelligent objects by inserting a smart card, the Universal Biometrics I.D. Card, into a special I.D. reader device connected to the computer. Unless you have and use the Universal Biometrics I.D. Card, your garage door and front door won't open. Your lights will not go on. Your heating and air conditioning will remain off. Your cookstove will not light up and be operative. Your commodes won't flush. Without your Universal Biometrics I.D. Card, you'll be rendered virtually homeless!
