    This is exactly why the Agenda 21 will be fulfilled. People are lame.

    " Qui Bono ? "

    That's the legal term .... " Who benefits ? "

    Not the customer , that's for sure !

    ALL of these so-called improvements to online banking are designed to give the banks greater protection.

    Here's another one they are fond of .... " We may record calls to improve customer service "

    .... yeah right ! .... it warms my heart when I see banks so dedicated to giving their customers the best possible service.

    Well, the rub is people are lame because those who are implementing Agenda 21 have made them so. How have they done that? Many ways, but a main one is through decades of very slow conditioning, surreptitious testing of the same, and moving onto the next step. We're almost there. The evidence is everywhere.
    That gets to me too and it's not only banks. However, it can work against them too. I've had 2 successful reimbursements solely because they decided to record the call.

    I came to realize some time ago, the ruling classes thrive on the fact, the majority of people are lame.

    OK so I should've been more precise....the rub is a lot of the time people are lame....
    In any case since this is a runaway snowball effect losing momentum no longer is a threat.

    The only way to verify a person via DNA is to stab them with a needle (random location) and analyze the blood on the spot. Would anyone submit to a needle stick as part of a credit application? Could also spit in a cup or scrape some skin cells I suppose but still...
    People are just really stupid and lazy about security. They don't want to take ownership of their own security by creating complex passwords or using 2 factor authentication.
    "Just use my DNA as my password" sounds cool but really makes no sense. The real issue is that liberal lawmakers and judges won't blame people for using stupid passwords. They hold the banks responsible instead. The banks are forced to implement stupid security measures to satisfy politicians instead of addressing security head on.

    Stealing someone's DNA is a lot easier than stealing their password. Just sayin' ;)

    Hmm ... not sure if I can fully agree on that point :)

    Most certainly , the massive advances in biochemistry that we have seen in recent decades can enable DNA analysis on the tiniest of samples,
    but it will always depend on being able to swab the physical point of contact that the target made somewhere.

    That same person's password could theoretically be stolen from the opposite side of the planet.

    Don't get me wrong .... I think DNA profiling , and the impact on personal privacy is going to be a major issue in coming times.

    There have been other threads on here in the past year where this same issue has been a very valid part of the discussion
    eg. Using cash to purchase Bitcoins , or buying VPN services with cash in an envelope .... are they really that anonymous ?

    It could depend on so many factors ..... eg. Did I touch the banknotes without gloves when I sent them in the mail ?
    ..... Did I take the precaution of wearing gloves , only to make the idiot mistake of licking the envelope ?

    And stepping back in time a few hours ..... what happened at the ATM ?

    Did I conceal my face from security cameras ? ..... Did I wear a full-body latex suit , or just gloves ?
    If I did , I probably " threw out the baby with the bath-water ".... standing out from the herd must surely be a fatal strategy ?

    .... just a few thoughts .... it's a good topic !

    Yeah, but why would you need to steal their DNA when they are giving it to you voluntarily? :)

    About stealing DNA, I meant locally, by Craigslist scammers or whatever ;)

    The thing that no one is commenting on is that only 26% are likely to share their social network profile yet this is likely the information that banks likely have. Think about banks accessing your contacts through their phone apps.

    Pretty much lol. I can't believe certain people are so gullible. I would never want Agenda 21 fulfilled by the NWO. But other people are just passively accepting the NWO.

    What does Agenda 21 have to do with bank customers sharing their DNA? I think this thread needs to be closed...

    What, closed because someone dares to mention Agenda 21? All this stuff is linked anyway, and A21 is part of the bigger picture for those who dare to look.

    No, closed because the talk about A21 has nothing to do with my original post...

    Agenda 21, NWO, what?

    Knowing what I do of IT security in banks, though, this seems utterly insane.

    Edit: also IP laws. Currently IIRC there's not much defense, at least in the US, against a company grabbing the rights to a DNA sequence from a living person.

    I'm from the UK, right, that's it I'm having my DNA surgically removed. Can I still get a tinfoil hat on eBay without a Visa card? ;)
