Yikes – Wisconsin Company First In Nation To Offer Microchip Implants To Employees…

Well, this is all kinds of creepy when carried out to its logical and unintended consequences.   Would you allow yourself to have a microchip installed in your hand?

(Via Fox Business) A Wisconsin tech company says they are about to become the first business in the U.S. to offer microchip implants to its employees.

Three Square Market (32M), a River Falls-based software design company, says starting August 1st, it will be offering microchips to all their employees. The chips will be implanted underneath the skin between the thumb and forefinger, which will allow employees to pay for food and drinks in the company’s break room, open security doors, and login into their computers without any special cards—or passwords.

“Eventually, this technology will become standardized allowing you to use this as your passport, public transit, all purchasing opportunities, etc.,” Todd Westby, 32M CEO said in a company press release.

The technology the company is using is called RFID or (Radio-Frequency Identification) that uses electromagnetic fields to identify electronically-stored information. The chips will also use near-field communications (NFC), the same type of technology that is used in most contactless credit cards and mobile payments. Westby says these microchips have already become very popular in many European markets around the world and they want to be ahead of the curve in bringing it to the U.S. (read more)

    I can see where this sort of “invisible ID” could be useful, but only if it was covert ! For me, the “issue” isn’t what we’re told the chip does, but what else is it capable of ? And who else can use it to their advantage ? I agree they pose (possible ) downstream medical issues as well, but that may be an “upside” for us older folks as a chip could serve as a key for ER Services to unlock critical medical history and data in an emergency. IOW, there’s “good and bad” as always, in any technology. I recall agonizing over having to create/sell a municipal drug surveillance/testing program fair to three parties.

    For anyone who is determined to do this — against all reason and good judgment — certainly it would be better to have it done to your non-dominant hand.

    If someone decides they want access to the things you have access to, they won’t need to deceive or trick or threaten you in order to get your password.

    They can just take your hand.

    With or without the rest of you in tow… 🙂

      I think there are already scanners that can read these things when you are out and about, too, so I would think they would make you far more vulnerable to data theft (there are billfolds, etc. designed to prevent cards being read). The whole concept is repugnant, anyway. Europeans, who are really once again subjects rather than citizens, are of course “ahead of the curve” with this. What have they got left to lose?

    It makes me seethe knowing how hard TPTB will push these chips. Medical professionals will be pitched first, specifically caretakers of those with dementia, Alzheimer’s, mental issues, etc. (patients likely to wander off will be easier to track and find if chipped). Emergency and rescue crews will also be shown how chips embedded with IDs and complete medical histories can eliminate some of the challenges they face in their line of work.

    But even though I can see the marketing strategy — ARGHHH — I have zero trust about a “voluntary” chip being offered today remaining a “choice” forever. So I’m gonna repeat what Sarah Palin said earlier … “Nope. Just Nope.”

    RFID chips offer very little security. The code inside them can be read by a person using a small external chip reading device. The copied code could then be loaded into a new chip that can be used just like the one that was copied. To be effective, the chips would require the use of a rolling code. This is a code that changes each time it is read. To date, I have not heard of such technology being available. Even with rolling codes the technology would not offer a high level of security.

      If that technologyis not here yet, TPTB are probably working on it. More than 10 years ago I saw a gadget which displayed “rolling” alpha-numeric codes. The device was small enough to fit on a keychain, and the codes changed continuously. Whatever code was being displayed at any moment was the password needed AT that moment to successfully log into a business network (back then, from a laptop computer).

    The entire concept is a marketing nightmare… why would any company with pure motives even attempt to do this?

    Look at the inherent opposition for starters.

    Whether they believe God’s Word or not, it’s ridiculous to market a device like this to a nation where the majority self-identifies as Christian. No matter how you ‘interpret’ Revelation, this has BAD written ALL over it, lol!

    So there’s that.

    Next, there are all of the security issues, and the Orwellian / Big Brother issues of companies and government spying on the people implanted with such a device.

    Next, there is what I believe to be an insurmountable logic problem.

    Anything you can put in a ‘chip’ under the skin can be put on a key-fob or a bracelet or a neck-chain, etc. There is no good REASON to have it implanted under your skin, except to be ‘trendy’, to be able to say you ‘did it’.

    Could you forget your car keys, with a chip in the key-fob?

    Sure, but you wouldn’t get very far before you figured that out, and then went to look for them 🙂

    And the world isn’t going to come spinning to a stop, even if they were really ‘lost’. But actually losing your keys (or other outside-the-body device, e.g., necklace, bracelet, etc.) is a sufficiently rare occurrence, such that implanting something INSIDE YOUR BODY in order to avoid losing it is hilariously beyond overkill.

    In the final analysis (and we’re not even CLOSE to that yet, lol!), there are LOTS of reasons NOT to do this.

    And so far, I haven’t heard single good reason to do it.

    .

    OANN just reported that 50 employees (dressed as sheep, no doubt) have ‘signed up’ for the implant.

    Because magic numbers are NEVER falsifiable. It’s a NUMBER. It’s replicable. The very idea that anything and everything is 100% unique is ridiculous. Imagine such a system collecting massive amounts of history being forced to wipe the slate clean after a chip goes bad or gets damaged. Oh? They could just copy the history over? So they can simply manipulate the data/evidence at will applying it to a replacement unit?

    There’s so much wrong with this it’s hard to begin. The nightmares associated with the connection between global credit scoring and social security numbers has been bad enough. And they want more of this and the people will stand for it? I suppose for most people, they have been born into it so they know nothing different. Civilization’s frog is being boiled.

      _________________

      That’s where it will get fun.

      They absolutely cannot lawfully compel anyone to implant a chip in their body, and they absolutely cannot lawfully disenfranchise a citizen by preventing him from voting.

      So they will do what they always do with any new ‘scheme’. They will make it easy to do it the way they want you to ( to vote using the implant chip), and make it harder (more hurdles and hoops to jump through) to do it the ‘old fashioned’ way.

      Not all at once of course, it will be incremental, over several election cycles.

      The older generation will resist the changes, but the powers that be will hope it has the desired effect of suppressing Conservative voter turnout. Over time, the way to do it the ‘old fashioned way’ will be continually marginalized (made more difficult), and once the older generation is gone, the information about how to do it the ‘old fashioned way’, if it is even still being published, will ‘disappear’.

      The younger generations won’t even know that the ‘old fashioned way’ still exists, unless they do their own research and figure it out for themselves.

      That’s how most of their ‘schemes’ work. They’re playing the long game.

      They can’t ‘make’ anybody to do anything, but they can certainly deceive, as well as ‘encourage’ and ‘influence’ the ‘herd’ with carrots and sticks to go in the direction they want, and once the older members of the ‘herd’ are gone, the younger members won’t be informed that there is any other way.

      It’s the same with every licensing scheme, where you waive your RIGHTS for some government benefit or privilege.

      Same with the SSN and Birth Certificate your parents obtained on your behalf.

      It’s just what everybody does, and nobody is old enough to remember WHY everybody did it in the first place, and most people never think to ask, or whether it’s even a good idea, or whether it still makes sense today. And besides that, even if someone does think to ask, the people they ask almost certainly don’t know either.

      Then they’ll steer you back to the rest of the herd, and ask for your JOHN HANCOCK on the dotted line please, they need that contract, to make sure you’re ‘in the system‘!

      That is how they get you.

      .

      It reminds me of the story about the little girl who asked her Mother why she cut the end off of the ham that was being cooked for Christmas dinner.

      Her Mother didn’t know. That was just the way her own mother had always done it, so she told her daughter to go ask Grandma.

      Grandma didn’t know either, she said that’s how her mother, the child’s great Grandma, always did it, so she did it that way too. She told the child to go ask Great Grandma.

      So the little girl asked her Great Grandma, and Great Grandma smiled, saying “Child, we were poor, and our cooking pot wasn’t big enough to hold a full sized ham, so we had to cut off the end of it to make it fit.”

    What station has replays of Captain Video? Where’s my copy of 1984? My brothers’ old Star Wars tapes?

    In the 1980s a major major healthcare insurance consortium sent me three nerds to organize their data into one network that managed Diagnostic Related Groups (DMGs) info for government reimbursement. While the various CEOs argued about which one was going to lead, I got to entertain these characters. Outside of sleeping all day and staying up all night playing games on The Internet, they craved the crappiest food. On one deep night mall trip to the local fast food shop they desired, they managed to steal all the credit card numbers entered by the multiple stores while I ran in to pick up their orders. They meant no harm with the numbers; it was just another game of who-can-top-this.

    Actually, these smart-asses were doing code for companies at the same time they were writing viruses to infect those programs — a new and ever-expanding industry. That was years ago. I.M.A.G.I.N.E.

    The music keeps on rolling.

    When my special-needs kiddo (Down) was younger, he was a “runner”. School, home or Church, If he got bored, he would quietly leave the building or hide. I was desperate for a portable GPS tracking system I could put in his shoes. He would remove watches, belts, hats and clothing and wander in his shoes and underwear. My Uncle tried to develop something to put in the kiddos’ shoes but there wasn’t a tracking support network available for the general public. (He really was a rocket scientist who worked on the development of the cruise missile systems.) I would have chipped him…but I would have ended up with DSS taking him away from me for child abuse. I certainly asked his pediatrician about it. The best I was able to do was the directional tracking collar used for hunting dogs. I sewed the box into the kiddo’s winter coat and backpack and put zip ties on the jacket zipper so he couldn’t remove it. Funny how it is now considered acceptable to chip an employee but you can’t chip children, special-needs, dementia, Alzhiemer’s or elderly people.

    If this not the mark of the beast, it is certainly a precursor.
    This chipping won’t occur as long as my generation is alive…and maybe the generation behind me.
    But the younger generations are brainwashed every day by TV and movies and video games and school and even by some organizations who label themselves as churches.
    This implant will be widely accepted and welcomed when the majority in our nation have never attended a Christian church or read the Bible.
    That time is rapidly approaching.
