The integration to a fully tracked society must be slow and non noticeable at first, you cant microchip the population overnight, barring say WW3,and a global economic collapse. The poor and those dependent upon the Government will be the first to be implanted,in fact there are some reports that the Homeless population of the US is already a testing ground for human RFID tracking.
Implantable RFID tracking chips to “stop terrorism”. And now to keep tabs on all the welfare queens, in order to keep tax dollars accountable. In the future There will be other rationales, too.But, really, governments just want to do all the spying they can within their power – and right now, technology offers more power than ever before to carry out universal surveillance, track and trace every person and every thing and put civil rights in the backseat where they belong.
The latest proposal from a politician in the Finnish government seems like a near-future dystopic film, but may not be far reality.It’s not much of a stretch to imagine that the U.S., Britain or other governments in Europe would do this too, if they could get away with it.
A politician from Finland’s conservative Finns Party suggested implanting welfare recipients with satellite-tracking chips following news that some recipients continued receiving payments after leaving the country to join ISIL. Pasi Maenranta, has suggested implanting all recipients of government assistance with satellite-tracked chips if they choose to leave the country.
Meanwhile, normal struggling citizens who accept government assistance might be tracked via an implanted chips … betraying all the rights governments in “free countries” are supposed to protect. They might not be doing anything wrong at all, but now they are under constant watch.
‘Google CEO Eric Schmidt greased the skids for an Internet brain chip during a speech before the worlds financial Elite at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland when he predicted the end of the world wide web as an external concept.Asked how he saw the Internet developing in future years, Schmidt responded. “I will answer very simply that the Internet will disappear.”
“There will be so many IP addresses…so many devices, sensors, things that you are wearing, things that you are interacting with that you won’t even sense it,” he added. “It will be part of your presence all the time. Imagine you walk into a room, and the room is dynamic. And with your permission and all of that, you are interacting with the things going on in the room.”’
When Schmidt speaks of sensors that will replace the Internet as a platform accessed only through an external device, he is talking about implantable brain chips.In December 2013, Google engineering director Scott Huffman predicted that within five years web users would have microphones attached to their ceilings and microchips embedded in their brains in order to perform quicker internet searches.
This ubiquitous world wide web would utilize microphones to instantly answer queries, control other technological devices and make travel plans.
When asked if such a system would be more vulnerable to government surveillance, Huffman glibly responded that people should just trust Google (a company that allowed the NSA to mine data from its cloud network “at will”) to safeguard their information.So when Eric Schmidt talks of the Internet “disappearing,” he really means that it will disappear inside your head.
Are you ready to have your veins scanned every time you use your bank account? Are you ready to use a “digital tattoo” or a microchip implant to unlock your telephone? Once upon a time we read about such technologies in science fiction novels, but now they are here. The era of widespread biometric identification and microchip implants is upon us, and it is going to change the way that we live.
Proponents of these new technologies say that they will make our private information and our bank accounts much more secure. But there are others that warn that these kinds of “Big Brother technologies” will set the stage for even more government intrusion into our lives. In the wrong hands, such technologies could prove to be an absolute nightmare.
It is only a matter of time before more banks, online retailers and major websites start using this kind of technology. We live at a time when theft on the Internet threatens to spiral out of control, and big corporations are going to be continually looking for answers. Motorola has developed a digital tattoo that will be used to ensure that only the owner of a phone is able to unlock it.
As it is starting to become more mainstream, and there are already some thinkers that are quite eager to use such technology for very authoritarian purposes.For example, one prominent philosopher recently suggested that we should use implantable microchips to prevent anyone that is “deemed unworthy” from becoming a parent.You might be tempted to think that this is crazy talk.But the truth is that this kind of technology is already being developed.In fact Bill Gates is funding the development of a birth control microchip that “acts as a contraceptive for 16 years.
The reality of the matter is that technology is changing at an exponential rate, and our world is going to get crazier and crazier as time goes by.Are you ready for what comes next?
Microchip implants like the ones pet owners use to track their dogs and cats could become commonplace in humans in the next decade. Experts are divided on whether they’re appropriate for people, but the implants could offer several advantages. For soldiers and journalists in war zones, an implant could be the difference between life and death. A tracker could also help law enforcement quickly locate a kidnapped child…
Microchipping humans like we do pets and farmers do livestock? Oh, yeah, that’s going to go over well. Just imagine the places we can’t go if the government knows where we are. The above article talks of support for microchipping children, Alzheimer’s patients, type II diabetics as a glucose measurement tool, and other camel’s nose under the corner of the tent uses for the little radio transmitters. If limited to uses like chipping felons and sex abusers…a supporting argument can be entertained, but it flirts with too much Big Brother.
Lead scientist on the study, John Brugle, Ph.D. offered the following: “We were motivated to perform this study by all of the public interest in RFID implantation and fears that it would be common place. It turns out, in fact, that it is already common place. We found that a shockingly high number of Americans are carrying RFID implants in their body. I hope that this study causes us to take pause as a society and truly consider the ramifications and implications of human RFID implantation”.
The study looked both at the prevalence of RFID implantation, as well as the common implantation locations. In addition to commonly known implantation sites, such as the back of the hand, they also identified many RFID chips that had been implanted in dental fillings. The function of the chips varied, but the authors of the study indicated that many revealed personal identities, including social security numbers, as well as medical records.
