We have ways of making you eat
Tuesday, December 05, 2006
Not content with having more CCTV cameras than the rest of the world, smart cards are now routinely used in some schools to monitor our children's eating habits.
The Innovations Report piloted the scheme last year, concluding that:
Smart card systems could be used to help schools with healthy eating programmes through personalised feedback on food choices, or reward schemes for children who choose healthy options.
So, basically our children are being watched, analysed and conditioned.
And why stop there? We could put a microchip in each child's head so that we're aware of their location at all times. This could hook up to a CCTV system so that we can see them at all times. Then we could track all their purchases through a smart card, and throw in routine lie detector tests in case they've scoffed a hamburger behind the bicycle sheds.
