The subject is very broad. I think most likely the microchips I'm talking about are for information and tracking. Now, with microchips, even when your unconscious in doctors can see your medical info. IT can save their lives. Now I see many people thinking of ones who manipulate your brain... What? First, we are not even CLOSE to mapping out the brain to do so... To put in perspective. The most powerful computer in the world can only manage to do a fifth of that. To manage personal information is actually pretty safe. Your credit card is more hackable than that chip. For pretty good reasons, most viruses are ejected by connection or wireless access. The only way it could get hacked. Were if the person replaced the station where the information would be read. Even then, it would be safer than your credit card. Privacy is safe, but location services? Your phone is being tracked, even your car, and you surely might be too. A microchip by the government is more likely to be placed in active military personnel to track and recover bodies. Why would they bother hacking a private company, with a chance of getting caught and losing funding? For simple few individuals? Bad people, "bad people can hack it and/or use it for bad ways"-- I even saw someone say "Except for those really dumb criminals, they'll find a way to block the signal, extract it, or manipulate it. Or, you know, just kill their target before anyone knows they're gone." What the heck. First, signals-- even the most simple of signals are encrypted. And unless they full body scan you with a metal detector for something the size of a grain of rice and/or they try to intercept and determine if its the radio tower, the verizon wireless tower, or anything that can send signals. I don't think anyone that kidnaps you would even consider a microchip. Lastly, health. The main thing. It is the size of a grain of rice. You know some of the things we put into our bodies? Like in the joints, bones, ribs, and your back? I have a 6 inch titanium bolt going through my leg. I don't think a tiny chip the size of a grain of rice is going to do anything.
If you own a phone, a credit/debit card, have any sort of social media account, you realize that the government has the ability to track your almost every move, right? The government doesn't care where you go, how you spend your money, what you do with your time as long as you're not doing anything illegal. With today's technologies growing exponentially, I believe that an RFID microchip would be beneficial society in many ways such as reducing identity theft risk and finding someone if they are missing or a criminal.
It will let us find are missing children and find criminals and our missing pets that we love and would miss so much and also it could be used for finding bad diseases or tumors or internal bleeding problems before some one can die from it. With out micro chip implants the world would not be a better place. Say yes for the children of now and tomorrow - Elizabeth Smith
The simple act of inserting a microchip can have positive outcomes. It can enhance our criminal justice system, prevent terrorists from entering our country, and improve medical care. A GPS function could track missing kids or criminals. Microchips would be way more effective than finger print scanning or identification cards.
While most people see the implanting of microchips in humans as another way for the government to keep an eye on their people. There are positives to this process. Amber alerts would not be necessary if they included gps. There would be no need to wait for doctors offices to wait for records to be transferred, just scan the chip. With all things there are disadvantages but there are so many positives to implanting chips.
Microchipping in humans can cause death. Anything can happen when a surgeon cuts open any part of your body and they can mess up, which can cause death. Embarrassment can happen too. Everybody has done something embarrassing in their life. When people do something embarrassing, they hope that no one had noticed, but even worse, microchipping someone to see what they are doing all the time, can lead to more embarrassment. People who say yes, would you be happy to be embarrassed and may even die?
It's a pretty bad thing, but there should be a choice involved. If you want to risk your chances and risk ruining your health, that should be your decision. If you have a child that's under ten then the parents should make the decision for that child. That sounds reasonable, Right?
1. It would constantly be sending radioactive signals to and from this device planted in your body. These waves have been PROVEN to cause diseases like cancer. You may think, "This is already all around us. Computers, phones, microwaves. Nothing's happening!" But even if these things weren't hurting us, how much more would chips planted inside your body decrease your health and form deadly diseases?
2.Do you want the Government to ALWAYS KNOW EXACTLY WHERE YOU ARE? It's a little unsettling. As said in other posts, it is an invasion of privacy.
3. Newsflash! There are bad people out there. Bad people can always find a way around the rules, restrictions, and safety precautions. So what happens when said bad people hack all of our "completely safe" microchips that we all obediently shoved into our body? It's like in those movies where that exactly happens and the person turns everyone into mindlessly obedient zombies. Sound fun?
4. Many argue that this would help us find lost or stolen children and pets. But really? Except for those really dumb criminals, they'll find a way to block the signal, extract it, or manipulate it. Or, you know, just kill their target before anyone knows they're gone.
So, from all this we can see that microchips in humans are not a good idea because they would corrupt our health, privacy, and ability to defend ourselves.
Thanks for reading. :)
The government should not force ANYONE to have a chip, because the chip would be able to track people and keep track of a lot of things that they do and all the places they go. Yes it would be somewhat helpful for locating lost or kidnapped people. Although the government should not infringe upon peoples personal lives. If someone wants chips to be legal so much then they can go get one them self. The government should not invade our personal lives period. They should not be able to tell us what doctor we will visit on what date, they should not be able to get involved in peoples personal lives, such as where we put there kids in school,and what we chose to do medicly with our kids ,etc.
We as people don't need the chip inside of our bodies period it would give us no privacy and if we were born without the chips why do we all of a sudden need it ? To me its just a human experiment and a very bad idea we need to open our eyes and see our freedom is slightly getting took away from us.
WE ARE NOT DOGS WE ARE HUMAN. THAT IS EVADING EVERY LITTLE PRIVACY THAT WE DO HAVE LEFT... THIS LAW SHOULD NEVER BE PASSED... EVERYBODY SAY NO TO THE CHIP!!! We dont need people up our ass 24/7 its called freedom people!! People are pretty rediculous now a days .
Should humans get microchip implant?
I believe people shouldn't get a microchip implant, because, even though it would potentially be helpful in kidnappings or other tragedies Humans should not be implanted with microchips. As it is we are majorly lacking privacy in today's computerized world. If a human is microchipped, there would no longer be any privacy what so ever. . .
Just imagine the new savage level of identity theft. We know it would still happen. It really sounds crazy. It's like - you're willing to forever sacrifice what little privacy you had left to overseeing eyes because you might get kidnapped or don't want to wait long at the doctor's office???? I'm sure the kidnapper will just go to extreme measures to take out your GPS chip anyway!!!
It's currently becoming more common to implant dogs and cats with microchips in the chance that they may become lost. However, I don't think humans should be implanted with microchips, even though it would potentially be helpful in rare instances of kidnapping or other tragedies. There would be a lot of safety concerns in having that kind of data right inside of your body. We already have enough problems with keeping credit card numbers and other things safe.
As of yet the only things we implant microchips in are animals to identify them if they're lost. We do this because we don't have a way to communicate with them using a language we both understand. If we start implanting humans with microchips it would give a new meaning to the "big brother conspiracy." The fact that the government already monitors our internet usage, telephone calls, text messages and movement by camera, should be sufficient enough technology to keep "eyes" on the public.
