Source: „Americans should beware the radio-frequency identification microchip because the danger it could lead to Big Brother watching and controlling you is a possibility, if remote.
The technology available to implant RFIDs in citizens is here and now, but it is doubtful people would acquiesce if the government attempted to make it mandatory.
But the very idea has sent conspiracy theorists into fearful overdrive, with website after website warning that the government wants to take over your life. The current profusion of sites fed on an NBC News prediction in 2007 that RFIDs will be implanted in all Americans in 2017 (for the NBC video, click here).
“If you take the RFID microchip they can TRACK your every move, Control your MONEY, Control your FOOD and possible [sic] even kill you if you don’t obey,” blares the website Before It’s News.
A story dated April 28 about implanting the chip on the US Patriot website brought 6,314 comments.”
