    That may not prevent it from happening, however.

    Why bother chipping us when they can track you more accurately than GPS via your phone, use drones to spy on you and potentially kill you if they wanted, read all of your email, and your facepage, and even see your browsing history that you thought you deleted. Leaving a chip in you would be a waste of time and money.

    If the government wants to know how long I sit on the crapper then more power to them.

    Loose your phone, stay indoors, use snail-mail, don't use facebook, stop browsing Japanese fat midget "teacup" porn.

    They put a chip in your head, well, not much you can do about that. Reasons why you would want to probably wouldn't even make sense to you once they figure out how to use it to "correct" those poor judgements of yours, but that's a long, long ways off yet. (We hope.)

    Governments have a long history of rounding up their citizens and putting them in gulags, for slave labor or just to make people disappear (hey, why not both?). America is making many tell-tale signs of repeating this. I suppose chips are far more efficient than, say, tattoos...

    Edit: I should point out that our rulers don't care about this piece of paper or that. What are you going to do, wave a document in front of an army?

    Not quite, but you never know. There are a whole slew of countries that used labor camps. People just fixate on the famous ones. There are other potential abuses with tracking devices. For instance, I hear it's a hassle just trying to leave the US, or take large sums of money out with you. Then there's the prison industrial complex.

    Personally, I think it's more realistic to happen after a post WW3 dystopia. Prior to that, there just wouldn't be any support or tolerance for something like that. They can't get away with everything.

    I totally roll around on the floor laughing when I see friends on Facebook screaming about the surveillance state after they have spent the last 5 years documenting every single, mundane aspect of their life for all the world (and their "500 friends") to see. The government doesn't need to spy on them, just friend them. I haven't posted on mine in months and was very lazy before that, I just use it to people watch.

    If the government is Big Brother, and business is Little Brother, what is social networking? I've always called it Little Sister. "Little Sister is watching you... masturbate?" Now THAT is super creepy!!!
