I believe that if we are so paranoid that our Police feel they have to pull a Big Brother and spy on everything we do, we are not much of a country
I worry more and more about where this is headed in the future. It's just chip, chip, chip away at our privacy until there will be none soon. It's
out of control.
It also concerns me how so many can't seem to see where this is all headed.
I suppose the REAL acid test for people who say they are neutral or support CCTV cameras and the government continually watching their daily movements
with them, would be to ask the question;
How would you feel, if there were no CCTV cameras anywhere, but instead the government brought in a law where it is compulsory for every Man, Woman,
Child and infant to have a chip implanted somewhere inside their bodies, that did the same thing as the CCTV cameras do and much more...it would
record medical information, your mental state, your emotional state and what you are eating, drinking (and smoking etc.).
It would record what you get up to in private meetings, what you did at work, even how many times you used the toilet...we could argue that these
hypothetical chips, in addition to tracking movements and position, and recording literally everything you're saying and doing, will also benefit us
by sending an alert in case of medical emergency, like a heart attack or serious injury...would that benefit make such an all pervading intrusion into
our public and private lives, the permanent observation by faceless people working for TPTB, of every aspect of our lives and of our bodies, justify
the implantation of the spying technology and be worth the trade off?
And as technology gets better and more advanced, these chips may one day have the ability to actually speak directly to you from within you...how does
a disembodied voice, barking orders at you, from inside your own head sound?!
And further down the line, when these implants get even more advanced to the point where they can alter your body chemistry..where they can trigger
chemicals that can make you happy, angry, sad, aroused, passive...obedient. What about when they could make you actually think in the way they
Well, this isn't here...yet.
But it's a slippery slope we're on i think, and this kind of thing is probably nearer than most of us would like to know.
