The BBC are reporting with glee that you can now have a microchip implanted into your hand “for your convenience”.
Patrick Paumen causes a stir whenever he pays for something in a shop or restaurant.
This is because the 37-year-old doesn’t need to use a bank card or his mobile phone to pay. Instead, he simply places his left hand near the contactless card reader, and the payment goes through.
“The reactions I get from cashiers are priceless!” says Mr Paumen, a security guard from the Netherlands.
He is able to pay using his hand because back in 2019, he had a contactless payment microchip injected under his skin.
“The procedure hurts as much as when someone pinches your skin,” says Mr Paumen.
No more cards, cash or carrying your phone around, you can just get scanned.
Of course, young generations will love this new convenience/freedom as they see it. They have been conditioned by technology in many ways. They have no life experiences or, in some cases are even aware of what happens in the world, never having been affected.
Some of us are hearing how a cashless society is not such a great thing as many of our freedoms will disappear along with our cash. We will be handing both to an organization for our convenience.
It all sounds amazing until you think that at any given time, the government can freeze our accounts, confiscate our money for any reason they see fit to give. They have shown their power, their commitment to the now and over the last two years, proven that they can and will do it.
You could be separated from society, shunned, hated and despised as you must be scum or worse if it’s happened to you and no one will care as they have been told you are bad or wrong and believe it could never happen to them as they are good and right so it’s all just strange people (conspiracy theorists) This has happened to people all over the world including here in Australia. In Qld, people have been punished and locked out of anything deemed fun for a quarter of a year for no scientific reason. I know I have requested the Science report/data many times.
There are questions to be asked about RF and links to cancer. Even though it is stated to be safe, what is the level of safeness? Where are the stats?
Any company selling any product will have a percentage of safety that they have to adhere to, but they will never be 100% safe. Consider if you have a 1 in 100% chance of developing breast cancer, would you want to take that risk?
On another note, how will people cope when they go for a meal or out with friends and they no longer need their phone, will they talk to each other again, what will they do with their hands as they no longer have to swipe and poke at their phones.
I am 100% sure the next new gadget for your convenience will turn up following the hand implant. Maybe it will be a brain microchip that enables you can stare at FB like some zonked out zombie whilst eating lunch with your mates.
Soon you won’t even have to think for yourself.
