So I hope that you typed this thread out on someone else's computer.
Or maybe the library?
Otherwise, you are in the same boat as those that you say should be ashamed.
You have an IP.
You can be traced.

I honestly believe that when the mass microchipping of society arrives, it won't be enforced, or even compulsory. People will demand it, if only for a little extra convenience. People are already volunteering. That's what we need to watch for: the little inducements that will be offered, to gradually slide the system in, until we don't even notice anymore.
... What if you no longer had to carry ID, credit cards, keys, etc.
I'm also imagining the types of spin that will be used, publicity campaigns, etc
What if not having a chip made you an object of suspicion? Why hasn't he got one? What's he hiding? Outstanding warrants? Criminal record? Must be something ... Most of the people I work with would get one just to avoid any negative stigma ...
