A) A quick glance at one article:
RFID ChipWhat is the RFID chip? It is a small electronic computer device placed into the skin of a person that can be used for identification, tracking, information storage and interfacing with external sources, such as for financial, business, commercial, governmental, educational, and medical institutions. In other words, an RFID can be utilized for every area of life.
Many legitimate and natural questions have been raised about RFID chips, like: What are the societal risks of the RFID chip? What are the foreseeable or likely governmental abuses? How does its implementation relate to the principles of freedom in a Constitutional Republic? Will I be able to maintain my rights of privacy and other liberties if I have an RFID implanted in my skin for societal and governmental purposes? As we will show, the answers are very relevant, because it is known that the federal government will likely mandate that these RFID chips be implanted into all persons in America.
The German IT industry group BITKOM recently conducted a survey that found that one out of four Germans would willingly, without force of law, have a RFID chip placed inside their skin for societal and governmental purposes. Perhaps those in the United States are not much different. The idea of a microchip being implanted into your body for these purposes has been around for several years and is only becoming more popular and accepted.
Written by Timothy BaldwinB) Analysis by me:This topic has been very interesting to me for a while and it seems to be growing very quickly within our country. I am not one to be worried or creeped out that someone can track my Iphone whenever they feel, but this reaches a whole new level. The second article in the link above mentioned that 1 in 3 people didn't even know they had one in them! Scary.. C) Bullet Answers:This type of technological advance can really help launch our medical care within the nation. Not only will it create better use of time and organization, but it can hold people and hospitals more accountable with every move they make. Globally this technology could help advance and connect information regarding anyone who may need medical attention outside of their home country if they are unconscious and cannot explain any medical conditions they have, the RFID tag would help with that. Locally and personally this would help communities save money and stay much more on top of people who need medical attention when in an accident and follow up help. Long term this could help people understand and keep track of their medical history and well being much better that relying solely on the hospitals database. Within 20 years, people could have access to probably what is going through their blood, what vitamins they need and that would probably cater to their advertisings within a store if it recognized you were missing something. Keeping a "human" aspect of things would create the best positive impact in the future, privacy is a currency now and people take that very seriously, this could easily be abused within the government and be used to hack into peoples lives which would be the worst negative. This would be Human tech and likely spread into bio tech as well with its tracking and data development. This falls into really every category other that Aesthetics.
