Sounds more like a "hip" agenda by a well-paying company to convince their employees that this is a benefit to them while they're secretly colluding with and working for intelligence agencies and DARPA (including probably the NSA) to run psyops on unwitting sheepies

Microchips has been around already since the 90s when it was approved for pets and farm animals.
In 2004 was officially approved for use on humans, I remember when it was this big Vans going around offering the implantable chips for personal security reasons in case of a disaster, or that is how was sold, for lest than 200 dollars.
Since 2004 only about 10 thousand people are known to have the chips implanted on them for life.
No very popular I guess.
The people behind the chips wants to sell the idea of a world without records but those that you will carry on your personal chips for work, banking, paying bills and even for medical purpose as to deliver medication under the skin in a timely manner.
I am sure that this technology will be useful in some future after our generation, but no right now.
Many religious people think that this the infamous mark of the beast in the bible.
I do not trust the people behind this technology and their planned use for it.
So I decline the encouragement of having something in my body because is profitable for those that are promoting it.

This topic has about as much substance as the fictional Movie, the Belko Experiment.
1. RFID are extremely useful, for an extremely large range of applications.
2. Some people don't like to carry things/lose things.
3. 90% of the angst against this technology is literally related to ignorance. Just because you can imagine it exploding inside your head, simultaneously having GPS and real-time location tracking combined with the ability to even read your thoughts, doesn't mean it realistically can do any of that crap due to a combination of forces known as PHYSICS. The average tag is carrying only a couple hundred characters, normally a webpage, to further it's ability to have 'interaction' at all. Even calling them 'Microchips' at all is laughable, or acting as if they have some sort of processing power.
The other 10% is just counter-culture propaganda of people with no life, and hate people for being different in any way, because they're 'perfect beings'.
(A lot of that 10% converse here.)
