Well if you ever wanted to know how bad a totalitarian government can get, you need an uninhibited imagination for only then can you reach reality. We already have programs where the government encourages fingerprinting infants for their own safety in the incident of a kidnapping. Well, government may try implanted chips so they know all lifeforms in their herd — yes you. The technology discussed very quietly behind the curtain was employed in Sweden by a private firm. A company implanted chips in the hands of their employees so they could enter the office, use photocopy machines, and even pay for lunch. The next scam to fight terrorism is to claim citizens should have implants, and then you can get on planes without strip searches.
