When I first read the article in USA Today titled, “You Will Get Chipped – Eventually,” I honestly thought I was diving into a bit of a misleading headline territory. In retrospect, I certainly wish I had been. Instead, the article headline which suggests that all humans will someday be micro chipped rather accurately portrayed the content within.
Last month, a Wisconsin company took heat for starting a new micro chipping protocol. The micro chips are capable of giving current employees “easier” access to the building as well as making it simpler to purchase vending machine items. On a side note, when you are willing to exchange your basic human right to privacy for a simpler process to obtain a Twinkie, you sort of deserve what the future has in store for you.
The aftermath of the breaking news led to many privacy advocates calling the move a substantial step in the wrong direction. Of course, everyone didn’t feel such sentiments, many people feel micro chipping will be a wonderful thing for the human race. For clarity and accuracy purposes, the company, Three Square Market or 32M, has not forced this protocol. They simply offered it up as a benefit. But it is definitive evidence that government agencies would likely never have to “force” such invasive chipping at all, instead, they could just offer it for free and as a benefit.
Today, a USA Today article more than implies that we, or at least our children, will all be subjects of micro chipping.
“It will happen to everybody,” says Noelle Chesley, 49, associate professor of sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. “But not this year, and not in 2018. Maybe not my generation, but certainly that of my kids.”
Gene Munster, an investor and analyst at Loup Ventures, is an advocate for augmented reality, virtual reality and other new technologies. He thinks embedded chips in human bodies is 50 years away. “In 10 years, Facebook, Google, Apple and Tesla will not have their employees chipped,” he says. “You’ll see some extreme forward-looking tech people adopting it, but not large companies.”
The idea of being chipped has too “much negative connotation” today, but by 2067 “we will have been desensitized by the social stigma,” Munster says.
It’s those last phrases that imply overcoming “negative connotation” and “desensitization” which should worry you the most. This is, essentially, experts admitting that the general public is less than comfortable with the micro chipping premise. This also implies that there is a movement to push for mass micro chipping.
Imagine, for a second, the severe implications of such rhetoric. Our children could one day be micro chipped in a way that discloses their health statuses, such as vaccines and SSRI intake. It could constantly monitor heart rates for insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies. It could track locations and influence a billion dollar data exchange business. Imagine the value that a company could have by monitoring your location at all times with pin point accuracy. Sure, your smart phone is capable of this, but you have the ability to turn it off and it has geo-limitations that chip would likely overcome.
The severe level of comfort with the notion of micro chipping is the most worrisome, though, because that’s the path of least resistance. Trading liberty for “increased security” is the American way, just look our nation before and after the events of September, 11th. Look at privacy policies which plague both the Obama and Bush administrations and may well plague the current Trump administration.
This, my friends, is the direction we are heading unless the common people wake up. But that’s a problem in and of itself. Most people think prepper websites such as this one are “worst case, impractical” scenarios being spoon fed to the masses. The government will tell them micro chipping saves lives. The company will tell them micro chipping makes ordering a sandwich simpler. We will tell them that it’s a dreadful slippery slope. We will be painted as a conspiracy theorist.
The above USA Today article is the start of the normalization process for the masses. This is how the indoctrination stream begins to flow, unabated, into our streets and schools and workplaces. It rises like a Phoenix and spreads like an infection through the masses.
“Stop your child from being abducted”
“Know if you are having a heart attack before it happens”
“Get a Twinkie, faster”
The last one is for humor. But kind of, not. Reality is becoming more and more of a bitter pill to swallow as advancements in technology continue to fall into the hands of the greedy, power hungry. And it seems, that convenient technology might one day, in the not so distant future, turn against us after all.
