Britons ‘could be microchipped like dogs in a decade’

Revelation 13:16-18: “And he causeth all … to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the Beast, or the number of his name … and his number is 666.” 

I’m not one for interpreting Revelation as it relates to current newspaper headlines, nontheless the following news tidbit proves interesting (and creepy). Once you read the article, the logical connection and possible migration between it and the passage of Scripture cited above becomes obvious…..but not surprising:

Britons ‘could be microchipped like dogs in a decade’30.10.06  

Experts predict that humans could soon have ID chips implanted under the skin.  Human beings may be forced to be ‘microchipped’ like pet dogs, a shocking official report into the rise of the Big Brother state has warned. The microchips – which are implanted under the skin (note how Rev 13 also says in their right hand, or in their foreheads”) – allow the wearer’s movements to be tracked and store personal information about them. They could be used by companies who want to keep tabs on an employee’s movements or by Governments who want a foolproof way of identifying their citizens – and storing information about them. 

The prospect of ‘chip-citizens’ – with its terrifying echoes of George Orwell’s ‘Big Brother’ police state in the book 1984 – was raised in an official report for
Britain’s Information Commissioner Richard Thomas into the spread of surveillance technology. The report, drawn up by a team of respected academics, claims that
Britain is a world-leader in the use of surveillance technology and its citizens the most spied-upon in the free world. It paints a frightening picture of what
Britain might be like in ten years time unless steps are taken to regulate the use of CCTV and other spy technologies.
 The reports editors Dr David Murakami Wood, managing editor of the journal Surveillance and Society and Dr Kirstie Ball, an Open University lecturer in Organisation Studies, claim that by 2016 our almost every movement, purchase and communication could be monitored by a complex network of interlinking surveillance technologies. The most contentious prediction is the spread in the use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology. The RFID chips – which can be detected and read by radio waves – are already used in new
UK passports and are also used the Oyster card system to access the London Transport network.
 For the past six years European countries have been using RFID chips to identify pet animals. Its use in humans has already been trialled in
America, where the chips were implanted in 70 mentally-ill elderly people in order to track their movements. And earlier this year a security company in
Ohio chipped two of its employees to allow them to enter a secure area. The glass-encased chips were planted in the recipients’ upper right arms and ‘read’ by a device similar to a credit card reader. In their Report on the Surveillance Society, the authors now warn: “The call for everyone to be implanted is now being seriously debated.”
