Kentroversy Tapes Podcast # 16 (October 8, 2007)

The book 'SPYCHIPS: How Major Corporations and Government Plan To Track Your Every Purchase and Watch Your Every Move,' co-written by Dr. Katherine Albrecht and Liz McIntyre was the winner of the 2006 Lysander Spooner Award for Advancing the Literature of Liberty.

KENTROVERSY TAPES PODCAST # 16 (October 8, 2007)
by Kentroversy

Dr. Katherine Albrecht of SPYCHIPS.COM joined me for a fascinating -- yet woefully disturbing -- hour of discussion on THE MICROCHIP AGENDA. With a PhD as an educator, Dr. Albrecht is on the front line of fighting the major corporations against this agenda -- and there have been some victories in spite of the tens of millions of dollars that have been spent on public relations to attempt to SELL this idea and concept to the American people. Dr. Albrecht will tell the listener about these victories -- which have been substantial.

Dr. Albrecht tells of how she came to be a consumer activist in 1999, and what she has done in the eight years since. Her story begins with those Supermarket 'Loyalty' Cards -- which are there to supposedly save us money. These so-called Shopper's Club Cards are promoted as 'inventory management' tools for the Supermarkets, and as money savers for us shoppers. When the listener hears what he has to say about these cards -- they will likely cut their card in half, and toss it in the garbage pail -- where it belongs.

We also discussed WHO it is that is truly behind this agenda, and of what specifically their ultimate goal consists.

Dr. Albrecht's 2006 book SPYCHIPS: How Major Corporations and Government Plan to Track
Your Every Purchase and Watch Your Every Move (2005)
is the subject of tonight's discussion -- which I believe went very well -- and should be very educational to those listening.

A quote from the book says the following:

"Imagine a world of no more privacy.

Where your every purchase is monitored and recorded in a database and your every belonging is numbered. Where someone many states away or perhaps in another country has a record of everything you have ever bought, of everything you have ever owned, every item of clothing in your closet -- every pair of shoes. What's more, these items can be tracked remotely.

Once your every possession is recorded in a database and can be tracked, you can also be tracked and monitored remotely through the things you wear, carry, and interact with every day.

We may be standing on the brink of that terrifying world if global corporations and government agencies have their way. It's the world that Wal-Mart, Target, Gillette, Proctor & Gamble, Kraft, IBM, and even the United States Postal Service want to usher in within the next ten years."

If this sounds Orwellian, there is a reason for this. It actually goes far BEYOND what Orwell envisioned in his dystopic nightmare novel '1984,' and brings in a new level of nightmare scenarios for privacy advocates about which to worry!

Kent, I'd like to congratulate you on a VERY hard-hitting episode of the Kentroversy Tapes. Your guest was fantastic, and the information that she has been able to uncover, albeit frightening, just goes to show that the answers are indeed out there if you dig deep enough.

I couldn't help but think about the films "Minority Report" & "THX-1138" the ENTIRE time I was listening.

Well done to both of you!

Greetings, Todd:

Thank you for your kind words. I was really happy about the way in which the interview with Dr. Albrecht came out.

She wrote me immediately after the show -- to say what a great time she had talking with me -- and that I had asked excellent questions. These were big complements to me -- as she is a very high-profile individual who is known worldwide, literally.

Also, when I put up the interview -- the downloads started immediately -- as if people were waiting for it.

Warmest Regards,

Buffalo, NY USA

Excellent show Kent - Dr Albrecht's point that if you don't fight the small battles, what hope have you got in the big ones, was spot on.

For those in the UK, the ASDA chain is now part of the Wal-Mart group - avoid!!

Greetings, John:

Thanks for your comments on my interview with Dr. Albrecht. As you should recall, I do NOT shop at WAL-MART, and never would either. That company is an enemy to America. I also made a fairly big pain-in-the-ass out of myself in explaining to my entire family and friends WHY they should NOT shop there, as well. Thankfully, they listened to me, and have stopped patronizing CHINA-MART (as it is now known).

I am taking things very seriously with my podcast -- and I am glad that I have gotten such a great response to the shows I have done thus far.

Coming up, I have an interview with Henrik Palmgren of RED ICE CREATIONS on THE KENTROVERSY TAPES.

Look for it!

Warmest Regards,

Buffalo, NY USA
