“Monitoring The Masses:  The Card And The Chip (January 12, 2015)” Revisited:  The “Fondle Slab” Enslaves Us All (January 28, 2019)

. . .

X          “We are doing it to ourselves.  The ‘Chip’ is not even implanted; the ‘Card’ is never discarded.  The ‘Chip’ and the ‘Card’ are consolidated into the ‘Fondle Slab’ we call our Cell Phone, our electronic love machine.”

Y          “The Cell Phone is a hard ‘Card’ embedded with the ‘Chip’ and cherished and adored as the most important possession and appendage of each and every subject.”

X          “The ‘Fondle Slab’ is the first thing we scramble for in the morning, the constant companion we clutch and caress throughout the day, and the last thing we embrace at night.”

Y          “They can access and assess the pictures we take and see who and what we saw and what we did and where we were when we took the pictures.  Who, what, when, where . . . and surely why.  And without asking us or paying us.”        

X          “We pass on buying infant formula to pay for the Slab.”

Y          “The enemy has been met.”
