What Would You DO for a Klondike Bar - OR "National Security?"Written by LadyCamelot
What would you do for a Klondike Bar? If you've ever seen antics of these cleverly and comedically devised commercials, you would be aware of what people would be willing to do for tasty, delicious treat.....BUT, what would you do for sake of National Security? Nearly stripped from pages of a sci-fi novel, comes an all, too incredible story of real, life-altering technology. Modifying course of civilization as we know it, "Applied Digital Solutions," creator of "Verichip," is purportedly and actively developing applications for this controversial product for National defense organization -- Department of Homeland Security. According to company press releases, Verichip (dubbed "Human Barcode") is an implantable device about size of a grain of rice. Composed of a microchip within a glass and silicone cylinder, Verichip may ultimately become Human social security number of future. Not just a form of simple identification, Verichip can ultimately contain retrievable information regarding detailed medical and financial history. And future capabilities are indicative of having GPS - encoded technology (Global Positioning Surveillance), and photographic memory record details. Currently, Verichip is a trial-by-use, or "voluntary" injection only. However, US Government, working in conjunction with makers of these chips, are "encouraging" usage of them -- of course for "your own security," and "medical purposes." The first family to have Verichip installed (yes, I didn't stutter -- "installed") was a family in Boca Raton, Florida. Both parents, injected with a Verichip, watched as their 14-year old son was injected with chip as well. Another perspective of Verichip, is that it raises questions of whether or not parents should have right to have their children injected with these little, digital devices. Although parents may fingerprint and now, even take DNA swabs of chidrens' saliva in case of abduction purposes -- at what point does "protection" become noninvasive; or in case of Verichip installation, intrusive? Advocates for this new and disturbing technology will counterattack claims of privacy invasion, and “Big Brother” supervision by stating how beneficial it is to National Security and "your own safety," but who is actually benefiting from this minute contraption? In lieu of September 11, a Nation stood at arms in wake of unfolding tragedy. Sporadically, our so-called Homeland Security elevates National security levels to different degrees -- just so we become more aware of unseen "terror threats. " And of course Veterinarians and Humane Society or SPCA actively promote use of these tiny mechanisms, so we can "track our animals," should they ever become lost or stolen. Correctional systems across country have interests in Verichip, as it would simplify monitoring system and do away with use of ankle bracelets. Then there's medical "benefit." Who would want to be without a chip that tells emergency workers your medical history if you're ever involved in an accident where you are unconscious or aren't breathing? In this case, I don't honestly believe that EMTs are going to be pulling out a scanning rod to check for a Verichip. More than likely, they'll be working steadfastly on reviving you and pulling you from death's clutches. So, on a medical standpoint, Verichip serves no purpose in emergency treatment as it so proclaims. Additionally, supporters will make assertions on how crucial this apparatus would be in responding to military crash victims. Rescue and recovery will be next targeted proclamation -- as it will save lives. In retrospect, this would be true -- however, military or governmental rescue and recovery operations are never as they seem. If you can recall Space Shuttle Challenger's tragic demise in mid 1980s, NASA's prime focus was indeed rescue and recovery. It's main goal was to retrieve Challenger's vital onboard "package" that cost US taxpayers millions, (if not billions) of dollars. This immediate "rescue and recovery" mission never entailed rescue and recovery of ill-fated crew. Yes -- Unfolding before our eyes, is prioritization of Verichip's "real" intentions.
