Further Controlling Your Life: Where Will It End? U.S. Government Has Plans In Place To Implement Microchipping Of All Children Sooner Rather Than Later
When it comes to many so-called Libertarians decrying the over-regulation of the government, oftentimes they look suspiciously like CEOs and other stockholders of giant mega-corporations looking to run roughshod over human rights and health concerns, not small businessmen being treated to the jackboots of a tyrannical government.
However, that’s not to say that there isn’t such a thing as government over-regulation. There are an alarming number of ongoing programs and systems in place that seek to wring ever-more control of our lives from the fast-disappearing oases that remain for human freedom.
One alarming development on this front has come to light in the form of an NBC report on new proposals to microchip children–all children–that are currently in the pipeline.
The government’s spokesperson for the segment is a mother named Steffany Rodroguez-Neely who tells the harrowing tale of temporarily losing her daughter at a department store–turned out the girl was hiding in a rack of clothes. But that happy outcome of a silly childhood game that surely every one of us played didn’t stop the intrepid Mrs. Rodroguez-Neely:
“If it’ll save my kid, there’s no stuff that’s too extreme,” says Rodroguez-Neely. “Micro-chipping would be an extra layer of protection, if something bad does happen.”
To paraphrase Benjamin Franklin if you are too much of a moron to know what the f*ck liberty even is, then you don’t deserve it.
Citing the rice-grain size of microchips, the piece goes on to suggest in no uncertain terms that this is the wave of the future, as well as predictably playing on the overblown fears of parents.
None of this is to say that the tragedy of missing or kidnapped children isn’t horrifying, nor to say that we should be unsympathetic to parents who want to protect their children. Nothing could be more natural, nothing could be instinctual or ingrained in our DNA.
What does not deserve even a moment’s thought is the notion that microchipping humans is a good idea, or one that wouldn’t lead to abuse. We’re still reeling from the Snowden revelations showing that the U.S. government has the capability to intercept–and probably does intercept–every phone call, every piece of email, every text message everyone in the U.S. sends or receives.
What kind of nitwit would promote the implantation of technology allowing this same government to track and monitor its supposedly free citizens?
How soon we forget.
