    They probably won't make it mandatory; too many people would outright rebel.


    Instead they'll cook that frog slowly.... in 20 or 30 years, it will be almost impossible to get by in the modern world without an ID implant, and then they will have you.


    If you don't think the tech will be abused to your detriment, look into your webcam and chant "NSA" three times...

    I doubt it. If it means the difference between taking a job you really love with a chip implant and a job you really hate without a chip implant then people are going to take the job they love with a chip implant. If it means the difference between a high wage job with a chip implant and a low wage job with no chip implant then people are are going to take the high wage job with a chip implant. If it means the difference between being able to work any job with a chip implant and no job without a chip implant then people are going to work and have a chip implant. If you spent several years in college and a ass load of money on college then you are not going to throw that away just because you do not want to be chipped. Sure some people will refuse, but there will be a enough useful retards out there that will make this take hold of the private sector and Uncle Sam will do the same in exchange for you getting benefits, tax payer aid, entitlements and other services. So the solution is to nip this in the butt before the useful retards out there allow this horrible thing to take hold.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    i don't see it happening within our lifetimes. i think the only chips that are going to be implanted will probably be to monitor medical conditions. there's just not enough public demand for an implanted credit card, and there's a LOT of opposition.

    No, it's something to be forgotten and never brought up again ever.

    Suddenly my trust in Google just dropped a few notches.
    I can't even imagine why you trusted Google in the first place. They have been interested in knowing as much about their users as possible for a long time now. They're assholes really.

    It won't be just for credit cards.

    FindLaw's Writ - Ramasastry: Outlawing Employer Requirements that Workers Get RFID Chip Implants Why it's the Right Thing for States to Do, Although Current Statutes May Need Refinement
    Cincinnati firm CityWatcher.com, a provider of video surveillance, monitoring, and video storage for government and business, has become the first in the nation to implant microchips under employees' skin as part of its overall security system. At the moment, only three CityWatcher.com employees, including CEO and founder Sean Darks, have the chips embedded under the skin of their forearms, which they swipe across a reader in order to gain access to the company's data center.

    You guys have a very antiquated notion of what 'chip implant' means. The way some of you describe it, it sounds more like a bad 1980's sci-fi flick or the kind of message board paranoia that thrived in the 90's.

    This is about the broader trend of merging biology and technology. Implants refers to everything from neural implants meant to correct, repair, or boost cognitive function, implants meant to allow thought based communication with computers and other technologies (already in therapeutic use), and a whole avalanche of possible uses that are just being unveiled today. Linking in to the digital economy is of course part of that trend but it's part of a much, much larger wave of development. It is exciting!

    No, it is disgusting. People won't put up with it.
