There's talk about placing chips inside little babies right after birth. This, so that they can be monitored "for the good of the nation" or whatever they call it.
This is most rumours, but I would like to get some concrete proof of this. All I have found is articles supporting this rumour, but nothing concrete. If these rumours are true, which it very well might be, I'm really REALLY terrified.
Please don't place chips in our babies!
This is scary stuff, and if it's true, I'm not sure I want to live here anymore. I'll build a spaceship and fly to Mars or something. At least, there I've got a Right to Privacy.
"VeriChip is the first Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved human-implantable radio-frequency identification (RFID) microchip. It is marketed by VeriChip Corporation, a subsidiary of Applied Digital Solutions, and it received United States FDA approval in 2004. About twice the length of a grain of rice, the device is typically implanted above the triceps area of an individual’s right arm" - Wikipedia
Citizens, please meet Mr. Surveillance
The fact that many nations want to monitor their citizens isn't something new. Actually it's something going on and escalating at this very second. At this moment, the government is tracking and soon storing all our internet based information for six months.
When they've got our internet life, what will be next? Chipping our infants?
"Privacy advocates have protested the VeriChip, warning of potential abuse and denouncing these types of RFID devices as "spychips," and that use by governments could lead to an increased loss of civil liberties and would lend itself too easily to abuse. One such case of this abuse would be in the microchip's dual use as a tracking device." - Wikipedia
This is my assumption: If we don't act now, our future might very well be babies with computer chips implanted into their bodies after birth.
(This is much more real than you think. You problably think I am over reacting to this whole surveillance stuff, but I think we need to be serious about this stuff before it's to late.)
