justinger has a frighteningly good point.
Although not lately, for many years now the thought has occassionally crossed my mind how easy it would be to track things like cars and people, and
I’ve wondered if it might actually be taking place secretly. I mean tracking via GPS in real-time.
Every new car could have a chip and sensor installed at the plant to allow tracking it’s location in real-time. The device could be integrated into
the system in such a way that removing it would render the car undriveable and useless.
At birth, every baby could have the same thing done. The tracking device could be strategically located in the body where it would become integrated
physically/biologically with the surrounding tissue. The surrounding tissue/nerves/synapses would physically grow onto, and adhere to, the tracking
device. If installed correctly, then removing the device would have fatal consequences.
Of course, the technology would have to be such that no known material could block the GPS signal, but that’s just a technical issue that could
probably be overcome.
If the above 2 things were done, Big Brother could have you sqarely in it’s sights whenever it pleased. You’d have no place to run, and no place to
hide. This would no doubt violate privacy rights, but who cares? Right? I doubt if Big Brother does.
At any rate, that’s my 2 cents. Like I said, I haven’t thought about it much lately. As technology advances, though, things like this become more and
more likely all the time. It may be that technology will become democacy’s fiercest enemy. No doubt about it, it's a real and present danger …
