It is little more than what they've already done to wild animals. What this world needs is every person tagged for better management of the herd.
A good sign to find yourself deep in the Amazon. I think it is inevitable, babies are already getting the chip, just like the family dog and cat. That doesn't mean good it just means controlled. They will no doubt add little 'enhancements' as time goes by, your stress level, voice recorded, pain levels, blood pressure, heartrate all going to a central data base. Aren't you just totally THRILLED?

If it becomes compulsory, then the breakdown is in the political system that allowed it to become compulsory, not in the technology.
Compulsory? Why would the government make it compulsory?
Just because it would end most, if not all, tax fraud if it managed and recorded all our financial transactions, and used it to cut medical costs by putting all our medical information on it, and used to end any more missing persons by using it as a tracking device and prevent people from running from the law, does not mean they will make it compulsory.
What, are they going to make health care compulsory too?
