Thread: Corporate Sponsered Surveillance

    This is a very dangerous precedent. Just laziness on behalf of employers but the consequences could be disastrous.
    There need to be new laws to protect citizen rights world-wide to stop this. It is an infringement of personal space and liberty. It’s bad enough that we carry around smart phones, which can be tracked and hacked into even when they are off.
    Normalisation will lead to ID chips etc, if things start to go wrong in your country, and democracy gets weakened, and you end in a totalitarian state - control becomes too easy. You already have access to everything you can possibly need with your mind.

    You're correct with "normalization"... It's baby-steps toward full-blown electronic tattoos or RFID implants in the hand.

I can see the "opt-in" turn into a boycott of potential employees who don't want to be chipped, and or in the near future make chipping a condition of employment.
    Well, at least here in the west our politicians showed a bit of restraint.... for now.
    California in 2007 swiftly moved to block companies from being able to make RFID implants mandatory, as well as blocking the chipping of students in the state.
    Seems like voluntary is only a step away from mandatory.
    Implants are a wonderful idea for a police state, not so great for the average Joe trying to conduct business without worries some hacker walking past is going send out a pulse to trigger the RFID, and capture whatever data is available.
