America’s slogan for being the ‘land of the free’ may no longer be accurate as personal privacy is put at risk thanks to the microchip identification implants soon to be required for all.
Conspiracy theorists have been claiming privacy violations for years, claiming that the American government is abusing military spying technology in order to spy on citizens right here at home without their knowledge of consent. Now these so called theories are gaining momentum as the first US company approves the probationary period for Microchip Identification implantation into employees who for now are doing so on a ‘voluntary’ basis. According to businesses interested in the technology the implants will greatly improve the safety, efficiency, and control each company has over the product and employees under their employ. Currently the implant has no sort of GPS capability but any cautious American knows that it’s only a matter of time before that stipulation is added into the software for ‘safety’ purposes.
A Wisconsin-based company was the first to take this idea and make the chip. They have announced plans to expand and get the technology out to other companies for “convenient” implants to be used on their employees. This is especially the case for certain companies with high-security levels where fraud is likely. The implants, which are basically tracking devices to void your constitutional right to privacy, are inserted in the webbing of the hand between the thumb and index finger. They are designed this way to allegedly make it easier to get through doors and other security check points that would typically require some sort of ID or card.
“The fun part comes in where they promise that these chips aren’t in any way GPS enabled and can’t be used to read information, only hold information that you might need to use, like using multiple magnetic strips with the swipe of a hand,” Freedom Daily first reported about the introduction of this big idea. “And they will no doubt notify us right away when they decide to GPS enable these chips because big brother never does anything underhanded and keeps it a secret,” the article added, pointing out the obvious privacy issues for the employee, using snark.
Three Square Market is a company that designs software for break room markets. And they are about to become the first in the US to offer microchip implants to its employees taking technology to an uncomfortable level for some. According to their press release, the program will be optional for employees and the company will begin implementation on August 1.
The RFID chips (Radio-Frequency Identification) will allow workers to enter the building, purchase items in the break room micro market, login to their computers, and use the copy machine. But those certainly are not the limits of the chip.
“Eventually, this technology will become standardized allowing you to use this as your passport, public transit, all purchasing opportunities, etc,” Three Market Square CEO, Todd Westby, said. If that doesn’t sound like the conspiracy of having a completely microchipped human race is right around the corner to you, then you’re missing the point.
Scary, people this is really scary stuff. Microchip identification is just another step closer to complete government control.
