Maybe it's my distrustful, paranoic thinking, but it's not a big stretch to imagine that one day every newborn will routinely have a tracking device
implant. Seems like it would be easy enough to do.
It's a double-edged sword, so as an across-the-board practice I wouldn't support it. Too much potential for abuse by the authorities and technically
savvy bad guys. In certain situations, though, it could be very useful and solve a lot of problems. I see nothing wrong about being able to track your
child, unless he/she is 35 years old
And it could be helpful in extreme cases like hardcore criminals, violent sex offenders, etc.
The technology is certainly there, and like most technologies it has the potential to be implemented in both good and bad ways. Let's hope it's used
wisely and for the good ...
