Oh (Big) brother, where art thou? Well, at the rate things are going, pretty soon the government will be with you at all times!
Electronics expert Stuart Lipoff believes that micro-chipping children will become standard practice in the not-so-distant future.
“It’s not a matter of if it will happen, but when,” Lipoff stated during a recent NBC News report.
Lipoff goes on to further assert that these microchips will make their way into society just like barcodes did in the 1960’s.
“When barcodes first came out in the late 1960s, people were appalled. They were wary of them and did not understand the concept. Today, it is so commonplace, we don’t even notice it. A microchip would work much in the same way.”
NBC’s Melanie Michael seems to agree with this notion as she says, “Someone someday is going to pull this off and we could see those microchips in everyone.” But, is that really a good thing?
The report highlights Steffany Rodriguez-Neely, a mother of three, and the fears she has of potentially losing her children. “If it’ll save my kid, there’s no stuff that’s too extreme,” Rodriguez-Neely says. “Micro-chipping would be an extra layer of protection, if something bad does happen.”
Steffany has faced a lot of criticism for her vocal support of putting microchips in kids, but she stands by her position. She claims, “If a small chip the size of a grain of rice could have prevented a tragedy, I think most parents would have said, I think I would have done it.”
Is this scary, or reassuring?
Sure, parents want to be able to keep an eye on their children, but what if criminals were able to find your kids, too? What happens if the system is hacked, and your child is exposed to danger because of a microchip inside them?
Another thing folks need to realize before they “chip” their kids is that they will one day grow up, and become their own person. Does present day insecurity warrant the need to forever keep your child on “The Grid?” For parents like Steffany, none of that seems to matter, as “safety” is the most important factor.
There is no data to support the effectiveness of these microchips since they haven’t been around long enough to provide substantial information. However, that won’t prevent the media from making it seem totally normal to do.
We’ve reported about people implanting “chips” into their bodies, but this is different. Those people voluntarily had something planted in their skin for reasons ranging from convenience, to simple experimentation. This report is practically advocating for parents to give the government eyes on their kids forever.
These chips can also store information, such as health insurance data, bank accounts, and a lot more. This would make the future more convenient for future generations, but shouldn’t people – young and old – get to decide that for themselves?
My friends, the last thing we want is MORE eyes on us. What exactly has the government been good at fixing as of late? I’d venture to say very little, if anything at all. Giving the “system” access to where we are at all times, and disguising it as “safety” is typical ‘smoke and mirrors’ as usual by the left. DON’T FALL FOR IT!
