The long slide down the slippery slope continues, America. A federal judge ruled Tuesday that a public school district in Texas can require students to wear locator chips while on school property – a case that has raised technology-driven privacy concerns among both liberal and conservative groups alike.
Granted, forcing students to wear locator chips during the school day is a long way from the government implanting identification chips in its citizens – or is it? In some ways, it’s even more ominous:
Think about it. From revisionist history in government school textbooks, to pushing a radical “green” agenda (which often includes instructing young children to “correct” their parents for “environmentally friendly” failures) to teaching students that homosexuality, bisexuality and transgenderism are just as “normal” as is heterosexuality, the left has been doing its ideological damnedest to indoctrinate America’s youth for decades.
By most measures, it’s working. And it’s getting worse.
Is it not logical then, to believe that making a child comfortable with the concept of wearing a locator chip in school might also make that child more comfortable somewhere down the road with the concept of identification chips – particularly, when packaged with other objectives that a population is taught to believe are in its best interests?
The ACLU opposes the ruling, as well. Senior policy analyst Jay Stanley:
“We don’t want to see this kind of intrusive infrastructure gain inroads into our culture. We should not be teaching our children to accept such an intrusive surveillance technology.”
Is it a stretch to think that children could be indoctrinated into believing that identification chips implanted in all Americans could be a great way to help the government catch the bad guys more effectively? (With little thought as to the definition of “bad guys,” of course.) Or, given the left’s agenda of teaching the virtues of wealth redistribution to our children, wouldn’t those chips come in mighty handy in helping the IRS track down evil rich people suspected of tax evasion?
Hell – the list of opportunities for a centralized government and its lemming-like followers would be endless, wouldn’t it? Yep, identification chips could be just what the doctor ordered for a permanent underclass and the government on which it depends.
Besides, the implantation of an RFID chip (the smallest of which now measures only 0.15 x 0.15 millimeters – roughly the size of an average grain of sand) would be virtually painless. Who knew? And all that upside potential!
Far-fetched? Hard to say.
Then again, if I had told you 10 years ago that America would soon become a country where more than 50% of the population would believe it’s “fair” for the upper 2% to redistribute its wealth to a permanent underclass – and that it would elect leaders who promise to do just that – would you have believed me?
Would you have believed that 50 million Americans would be living on food stamps, and the federal government would be doing everything in its power to add even more people to the ranks?
Would you have believed that a president of the United States would establish a website and encourage Americans to use it to report “suspicious” activities of friends and neighbors?
Identification chips? Not any time soon. Obama’s America? It’s here now.
