Thou Shall Not Chip!

Or, To Chip or Not To Chip - That is The Question. Are GPS chip implants a good idea, or a scary way "the Man" can keep a perpetual eye on where we are in the world? Are they just another way to potentially control the populous, or a beneficial technology for Humankind in general? A while back I wrote an article on this subject. This discussion starter consist of excerpts from that article. Preemptive Tenant Maybe before that day comes when a government takes the stand that all its citizens must submit to GPS computer chip implants, we should take our own moral stand against it in the form of a religious principle. After all, it is an unnatural thing putting computer chips inside your body. It just instinctively sounds like a bad and unhealthy idea, not unlike mercury in vaccines. Can we really have faith that such intrusive technology is safe? Yeah, like any "human made" technology is safe, about as safe as an off-shore oil rig. I think we need to form a religion, or reform our current ones to include among their basic tenants that mandatory computer chip implants are immoral and must be rejected from any government that would presume to force them upon its people. Maybe, we should consider that about off-shore oil rigs, too. Like the stand of "conscientious objection", "chip implant objection" ought to already be written into religious tenants as a kind of preemptive measure. I'm sure that folks like the Amish, Mennonites, Christian Scientists, and Jehovah's Witnesses would all pretty much automatically reject such an intrusion into their bodies; as well they should. Personally, I don't belong to any of those particular religious, and/or sub-cultural groups, but most definitely I agree that such a chip would be an unwelcome intrusion, which I would vehemently refuse even under the threat of imprisonment or death. In other words, nobody's going to put one of those things in me, unless it's in my cold dead body, and then I don't really think they'd be interested.

I never wear any jewelry, never got a tattoo and I will never agree to having a chip stuck in me. Me and one of my friends was just talking about that old movie Logan's Run. Not because of the chips they all had in their hands but because he met someone who told him they didn't want to live in a neighborhood with people who were over the age of 30.

I don't really see any real benefit into putting a computer chip into someone's body. I mean sure you can be able to be found at anytime in the world but the only real benefit I see of that is if you happen to be lost at sea or you die and no one can find you. However there obviously would be a lot of health risks to it in my opinion, there is already so much radiation that we are faced with daily with our different gadgets such as phones, computers, music devices and so much other stuff. Plus what kind of nerve blockages and other things like that could it possibly cause. I think that government bodies and authority figures already have way too much control and power over our lives and I really don't think that we need any more methods of fear employed upon us. We need to learn that we don't need all this technology as much as we make it seem and that we will be just fine if not better without such a heavy reliance on it.
