Sci Fi Reality Creep

Monday, 04 November 2002 12:00 AM

For several years I have been grousing about government use of technology to eviscerate our liberty and freedoms. Subdermal biochip implants are no longer radical right-wing or fundamental Christian fear mongering – they are reality, and Digital Angel is hard at work convincing a gullible world that they are the slickest thing since pre-sliced bread (although, like George Carlin, I never understood what IS so slick about pre-sliced bread).

There is what has become a significant industry overcoming the inevitable objections to "chipping." They are VERY busy.

Rapid routine advances in computer cross matching have become as common as pigeon droppings in Trafalgar Square and cover the full spectrum from census, motor vehicle, tax, title and insurance databases to school records. The inevitable consequence is an exploding information industry of data traffickers and "brokers," licit and otherwise. All these new data managers/marketers link information to accommodate the needs of employers, credit bureaus, universities, police, corporate spies – and government.

This is a VERY big business, and data-laundering results in big money.

Knowledge IS power. Bear with me for a short syllogistic ramble:

However, then came government-mandated database consolidations, standard definitions, uniform codes and compulsory compatibility among local, state and federal (drum roll for Hal's grandparents) computers.

The new generation of ID implants holds a sizable paragraph of information. Yeah, we get the idea. Big-Flipping-Brother knows where you are ALL the time. Privacy – the very concept of privacy – becomes an anachronism.

Scott McDonald of the Web site Scan This News once noted: "A lifetime of information can be easily databased using a microchip system. All movement, transactions, and interactions can be recorded and monitored once everyone has their own unique identifier. Every detail of a person's life will be finally accessible to authorities through the widespread use of implanted chips ... it must begin somewhere and school children are the most likely candidate."

You can damnbetcha that there has been and will be opposition to implanting children and the destruction of privacy. However, McDonald suggests, "Some will holler: 'The Constitution this, and the Constitution that.' But only those social misfits, kooks, and rebels with something to hide will hold out strongly."

Oh yeah? Even those social misfits, kooks, and rebels with NOTHING to hide STILL object.

"Little will they know, the very act of objecting, in itself, will suffice to 'identify' them as trouble-makers," continues McDonald. "They can then be arrested and force-chipped as part of the booking process! Besides, most Americans – after they've been reminded of all benefits and services they will sacrifice if they refuse – will soon acquiesce. This is how it worked when Congress enacted laws to coerce parents into numbering their children at birth. A few grumbled for a short while. But, once the threat of no longer being able to claim their children on tax returns set in, they got right in line down at the Social Security Administration and had their children numbered."

The myopic hubris of bureaucratic sphincters is sufficient to gag a maggot. Those of us who still intend to defend and protect the Constitution against ALL enemies, foreign AND domestic, are, by definition of "The Controllers," "social misfits, kooks, and rebels." Then again, according to the FBI definition, they are terrorists: "Terrorism is the unlawful use of force or violence against person or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian populace, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives."

F. Scott Fitzgerald once said, "The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function."

Please, let us all "retain the ability to function."
