Well, you heard it here first. Back in January, we reported on RFID chipping and its’ possible inclusion in the Obama health care plan. However, now that it’s all closer to becoming reality, more people seem to be interested in this practice, which some are heralding as the biblical “mark of the beast” that everyone has been waiting for. But is this just fear-mongering or is it really on the horizon?
A lot of the fascination with this topic comes from a simple paragraph embedded in over a thousand pages of legal mumbo jumbo that is the United States Health Care Bill. The section is titled simply “Subtitle C-11 Sec. 2521 – National Medical Device Registry.” Doesn’t sound so imposing at first glance, but the actual material within this very small section that is seemingly included as an afterthought is something much more interesting. This is an actual screenshot of this part of the legislation which can be viewed in full here.
A lot of conspiracy buffs point to this as the smoking gun that the United States intend to implant RFID microchips into each and every citizen, with one point being to discern between who is eligible for health care. Ordinarily, we at Common Sense Conspiracy might think this was stretching a bit, but there is one word in the simple paragraph above that lends an awful lot of credibility to this theory. Implantable. If there were any other conclusion to draw, this word would not need to exist in such a document. That’s right, in a thousand-page document, this one little word may carry the most resonance of all of them.
Some think that this institution of required microchiping could be the “mark of the beast” foretold in Revelations of the Bible. In any case, it is a bold step forward into a new technology that most of us are probably a little hesitant about being forced to incorporate into our organic bodies. And as always, the real question is what else will the microchip be capable of? Will be still need other forms of identification with a chip like this present in our very bodies? Can our movements be tracked? Could our speech even be recorded?
Will this ever come to pass? It is still up in the air for now. But if these microchips are introduced into our culture, what do you think it means?
