I'm sure it's possible on a large scale. we know that the current administration is incompetent, but who's to say the next one will be? here's a
scenario to think of:
the government, and subsequently most insurances, threaten to cut off doctor and hospital funding UNLESS they implement an "implant clinic" that
will implant, and maintain, the RFID Chip. Hospitals, fearing they will lose funding, agree. everytime you visit a doctor, ER, dentist, OBGYN,
Psychologist, etc.. who has ties to a certain hospital, you'll be pressured into getting the chip implant. hell, they may throw it in during surgery
without you knowing it. newborns will have them implanted during birth, so that two or three generations down the line from us right now, the
government wont have to force anyone into getting the chip- its there from day 1.
Corporations will easily implement the RFID readers, since the technology is already readily available to them- its the same thing that they use to
lessen shoplifting. this in turn means massive layoffs nationwide, since cashiers will no longer be needed.
i've read before, and i dont have the link, sorry, that this will virtually wipe out drugs, or so the government thinks, because it would render
dealers helpless to sell, since cash is useless, and they cant take the chip. IMO, drugs will be a bigger problem than before, because they'll be
made readily available everywhere, in exchange for sex, clothing, food, etc.
I don't think that this will be the extent that we see it, but it kinda makes you think...
