If a steel truth exists in decades of technological innovation, it rests firmly in the convenience provided society — indeed, while the mother of invention had long been named necessity, a prodigious marketplace bolstered iniquitously by acceptance of planned obsolescence ensured materialism had supplanted anything honorable as the true American Way.
Whether society’s placating soma of an obsession with stuff and things was engineered by the political upper echelons or fell, in some nightmarish fluke, at the feet of frothy-mouthed surveillance hawks, perhaps matters not an iota, considering the State probably has more eyes in your home than does your family.
That — implanting appliances, phones, electronics, homes, cars, kids’ toys, and damned near any other objects pervertible for domestic spying — takes gall.
Like well-oiled cogs, however, even corporate media’s condemnation in headlines of the aforementioned abhorrent surveillance programs exposed by a series of tremendously important leaks and leakers, could not sway consumerists, on the whole, to raise as much as an eyebrow. Why this stupefying apathy to multitudinous rights violations perpetrated by the United States government against, well, the planet?
If America traded liberty for security, it chucked privacy for convenience — to our steep detriment and the State’s undoubted joy. Voice and typed internet searches on any device, putatively private chat conversations on social media, and the ever-popular, dual-facing camera — to most consumers, these and more are mere modern amenities — vast leaps forward in speed and quality and luxury and so on, ad infinitum.
Privacy and constitutional rights law can’t keep pace with invention in this digital age, leaving advancements open to abuse by both the surveillance and police states — as well as a predictable tangle of precedent-setting court cases, each breaking as much ground as the technologies they debate.
One technological wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing slipped unobtrusively into Europe as an apparent answer to accessibility in the workplace: RFID chips — grain-of-rice-sized, injectable, memory-packed, protean implants — designed to identify the bearer for use of equipment, purchases, logins, and other operations generally requiring more than the wave of one’s implant.
Once workers took the plunge, RFID (radio frequency identification) technology sprang up in a smattering of places; and, soon, Sweden accepted microchips for payment at government-run train stations — as if subcutaneous tech were well-rooted and time-tested.
Then, just this week, reports a Wisconsin business held a party for workers volunteering for a chip set social media into paroxysms over privacy worries, the role and acceptable extent of nascent technology literally in our lives, and only somewhat far-flung fears the tiny gadget will ultimately fall to malevolent, coercive control to some unknown, but obviously untenable, end.
Such a scenario isn’t unfathomable in context — governments the world over maintain power efficaciously when control looks most like convenience to the populace. Think, enhanced ‘security’ at major airports following the attacks of 9/11 — and increased surveillance, tracking, monitoring, the introduction of artificial intelligence, use of biometrics databases, extremist countering programs, and all the rest occupying a salacious list of State machinations in the perpetual War on Terror.
Both sides of the RFID debate, however, have thus far addressed microchipping as a voluntary action, lending a sense the forceful implantation concerns have been delegated only to the most suspicious among us — away from the fraught theater of theoretical future purposes the invasive item might portend.
RFIDs cannot track a human being like a GPS-enabled device — functioning more like an office key card than homing device, microchip implants will only retain the data necessary for its specific duties — but that hasn’t quelled a murmur suspicious that advancements mean tracking is coming soon.
In fact, the roll-out of RFIDs into the private sector bolsters their PR, as an increasing number of bosses already have gently prodded employees to submit to the implant, while distressed employees fret over whether they’re next — or if a chip, for them, won’t come with the option of saying no and keeping the job.
Conjecture over the future being a vacuous exercise in futility, we cannot know for certain if RFIDs will end up used for proverbial good or bad; but, as the chips begin frequenting headlines, vigilance is essential — an unrecoverable freedom vanishes only when no one’s heeding the signs. Compulsory implantation isn’t honestly a grand departure from volunteering for a chip — factor employer incentives or refusals to hire those who won’t submit, and the financial repercussions act in de facto force.
Keep in mind, an interminable list of possible hiccups — chips coming out, being forcibly removed, forcibly implanted, and somehow falling into criminal hands, for starters — have yet to be thoroughly fleshed out.
Several politicians across the U.S. have introduced legislation to ban forever mandatory RFID chip implantation.
None of this sought to nor should sway the reader to a specific position concerning the microchipping of human beings — that decision of body sovereignty must be left to the individual when appropriate.
Casual human microchipping might or might not be pervasive down the road — though, in conjunction with the monumental shift from hard currency to digital, the former seems probable — so, familiarizing oneself with the technology now is prudent.
While jumping to volunteer as your company’s microchipping guinea pig is indeed an option, consider history’s cautionary tales of governments fatally drunk on the power robbed from the masses — who never again reclaim it until decimation of a system — and know indisputably we’ve peered over similar precipices before.
Neither wholesale condemnation nor blithe approval should characterize positions on microchipping until further study can be performed — but a healthy dose of skepticism in matters of the State must always be advised.
RFID chips are probably here to stay — whether that’s acceptable must be decided soon. This is a test — and it appears to be going swimmingly.

The Devil’s mark and not necessarily from a religious standpoint.
Far more insidious than implanted chips is the threat to hijack our internal biology and turn it synthetic via geoengineering they’re spraying weaponized parasites that have been altered via nanotechnology to interfere with critical biological processes such as our red blood cells ability to carry oxygen. Via this means the elite are turning us into non reproducing cyborgs, and this is not science fiction. We are not powerless to protect ourselves via detoxification.

It’s not “us versus them”. It’s “us”. If you believe your problems are caused by anyone other than yourself, you are deluding yourself. This is a very common misconception amongst human beings the world over. They encounter a problem and then look for someone else to blame.
Rev. 14: 9-11. How did St. John know this was coming about 2,000 years into the future? Amazing question to be addressed.
HELL NO I WILL NEVER ALLOW THIS TO BE DONE TO ME
The sheeple are not that bright. I wonder how many are Liberals? Anyone want to guess?
Excellent commentary from Claire….No doubt the New World Order wants the chip to be mandatory and will probably have a kill switch for those who don’t go along to get along.
RFID chips are the cassette players of this type of technology.. They are passe’.. OLD technology.. Nano technology is at the point right now where self-replicating nano-bots small enough to be disbursed in an aerosol, can be breathed in by a human, and begin their pre-programmed task within that persons bloodstream. This isn’t science fiction – this is science fact! The military.. OUR military has written papers about this WEAPONIZED technology and how it is to become the new style of modern warfare.
What’s the best type of tracking device? The kind the one being tracked doesn’t know exists, much less that one resides within him… Exactly what this means for “free will” is beyond me…
… and we are already being sprayed with nanobots in the form of chemtrails. Perhaps we are already robotised but now lack the human imagination to see it!
you have just intrinsicly proven that theory incorrect. LOL
and all the sheeple said “Baa,Humbug”
Someday people will say, “ya know, I think my chip, my FitBit and my shock collar are conspiring against me!”
Sounds like a bad episode of Star Trek (shock collars!)
just watch the Hunger Games……
This particular reality is deeply rooted in the belief that person’s are but chattel; when in fact they are the creators of the problem itself.
By means of self poisoning and succession of their inalienable rights, to an entity which has abused the trust of such persons.
Where man was king, he has placed his ultimate power into the hands of wolves; succumbing to a sheep’s fate. Hueing oneself, and falling asleep to the beauty of one’s life. For beauty rests in love, and love is not an action accessible by those that are asleep to their own condition, and the greater realities that are but a thought away.
Superb article, almost poetically written!
1) RFID tracking is already used in tracking the whereabouts of stock in warehouses. Not a big jump, then, to monitoring where everyone on the planet is at any given point in time.
2) It won’t take long for the black hats to figure out how it all works, make their own hacked devices and use them to siphon off pennies from people’s accounts without them noticing. After all, with the inherent increase in the number of financial transactions (even pay wave cards make this happen right now), users are not going to be able to see the wood for the trees on their monthly bank statements!
We’ll be trading eternal life for transhumanist existence next. It’s already in the pipeline. Buyer beware!
No, now It’s their soul for convenience.
I’m not saying this is the mark of the beast but is probably the lead up to it. Just like Ken Peters in his vision.
When we start seeing people refuse to get this and the other article’s “graphene tattoo” done regardless of the PR, propaganda, and calls to social utility, it won’t be too many steps away from people being forced to take it, lest they be guilty of a “crime”. Hell, if you get law enforcement backing for this then it’s game over man, ala bill paxton. I still won’t allow another to do to me which I choose not to have done, or I’ll die defending myself, I guess, hope not though. That’s as much as we can hope for these days.
Remember that the key to duping impatient and intolerant human beings is to GO SLOW. If you want to succeed at pushing any agenda, just take your time and go in little increments, because humans do not respond to “little increments.” And so we gently introduce SOME people to the chipping and leave others alone, FOR NOW. Wise people see the entire picture, however, and know exactly where all this is leading, so let’s hope we can overcome our self-loathing masochistic selves and squash this chipping crap right NOW. If not, there will be NO future for mankind other than the MOST EXTREME form of slavery and control that you could possibly imagine, the ultimate revenge against the Gentiles by the “You-Know-Whos.”
Brother Nathanael Kapner can explain it without fear of that “anti-semite” slur…
