radio implants and microchips - "...Today's super technology, connecting our brain functions via microchips (or even without them, according to the latest technology) to computers via satellites in the U.S. or Israel, poses the gravest threat to humanity. The latest supercomputers are powerful enough to monitor the whole world’s population. What will happen when people are tempted by false premises to allow microchips into their bodies? One lure will be a microchip identity card. Compulsory legislation has even been secretly proposed in the U.S. to criminalize removal of an ID implant. Are we ready for the robotization of mankind and the total elimination of privacy, including freedom of thought? How many of us would want to cede our entire life, including our most secret thoughts, to Big Brother? Yet the technology exists to create a totalitarian New World Order. Covert neurological communication systems are in place to counteract independent thinking and to control social and political activity on behalf of self-serving private and military interests. When our brain functions are already connected to supercomputers by means of radio implants and microchips, it will be too late for protest. This threat can be defeated only by educating the public, using available literature on biotelemetry and information exchanged at international congresses. One reason this technology has remained a state secret is the widespread prestige of the psychiatric Diagnostic Statistical Manual IV produced by the U.S. American Psychiatric Association (APA) and printed in 18 languages. Psychiatrists working for U.S. intelligence agencies no doubt participated in writing and revising this manual. This psychiatric "bible" covers up the secret development of MC technologies by labeling some of their effects as symptoms of paranoid schizophrenia..."

enemy combatant - "...Why is this chilling? Because according to H.R. 6166, you too can be an enemy combatant! All you have to do is disagree with military policy and the Bush administration. "Any person subject to this chapter who, in breach of an allegiance or duty to the United States, knowingly and intentionally aids an enemy of the United States, or one of the co-belligerents of the enemy, shall be punished as a military commission under this chapter may direct." How do we know this applies to us here in the states? Simple. Why would anyone from a foreign country be expected to harbor any allegience to the U.S.? This bill was passed for the stifling of Citizens on American soil. In other words, thanks to IBM-father of the Hollerith Machine that helped to send millions to their death and it's collaborators, the universities, corporations, the Department of Defense and U.K. Ministry of Defense, the new technology of chipping insurgents just might find it's way home to our shores in the guise of enemy combatant control and surveillance, i.e. forcably chip and track anyone who resists the tyranny which is the hallmark of the Bush administration. It's time to wake people up..." (IBM, Dod, RFID)
intrusion and privacy - "...The legal system may also need to rethink the collection and admission of evidence. At present, a criminal defendant may file a motion to compel the prosecution to disclose all records of electronic surveillance that occurred at the defendant's home, place of business, and other related premises. Criminal defendants may also request an evidentiary hearing to determine whether the government received such records via illegal surveillance and ask that any evidence derived from an invasion of the defendant's privacy rights be suppressed. Here, an implant society would need to redefine "intrusion" and "privacy." As a result, illegal surveillance may have a very different meaning in such a society. As far as giving up the right altogether, one could imagine a population generations from now where high school students look at their history books in awe of a concept of privacy that they cannot fully understand. Depending on the social policies of the time, these students may even look upon the right to privacy in disgust. Such students may raise questions and concerns such as: "How dare those uncivilized people of the past be so selfish as to put the rest of society at such risks?" "Those poor lonely people! If they only would have had implants, they would have been able to better connect with their neighbors. Unlike us, they were never able to know anyone else as well as they know themselves." Granted, not all third or fourth generation implantees will feel this way, but it is likely that the majority of implantees may come to regard their situation as advantageous..."

cognitive computing initiative - "...In 2004, DARPA funded a US$19 million program led by a Duke University neurobiologist, Miguel Nicolelis, in which a monkey was able to control a remote robotic arm hundreds of miles away, through a two-way wireless interaction between the monkey’s cerebral cortex and the robotic arm. DARPA’s military goals for this project included giving combat soldiers the power to remotely control military equipment and weapons at a distance through such brain machine interfaces (BMI). As was mentioned in Chapter 1, another goal of DARPA is to remotely control the soldiers themselves through the use of peripheral devices wirelessly interfacing with their brains, including remotely controlling natural emotions, such as fear, and feelings, such as that of fatigue, in combat situations…Here, there are profound implications for DARPA/IBM’s cognitive computing initiative to build a “global brain.” If sensors that monitor and control soldiers’ motor and sensory brain activities were “plugged into” a global brain through BMI interfaces, the possibility would emerge of remotely controlling and coordinating an entire army of soldiers by networking their individual brains. … The stored data and supercomputing capabilities could then … give an army a marked, logistical advantage over a nonnetworked opponent. Of course, this advantage would be purchased at the expense of turning human soldiers into military robots plugged into a literal network of remotely controlled fighting machines. There would be little left that would make them distinctively human...." (Beyond ‘1984’: New Frontiers of Mass Surveillance)
VeriChip is the only Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved human-implantable radio-frequency identification (RFID) microchip. It is marketed by PositiveID, a subsidiary of Applied Digital Solutions, and it received United States FDA approval in 2004. About twice the length of a dime, the device is typically implanted between the shoulder and elbow area of an individual’s right arm. Once scanned at the proper frequency, the VeriChip responds with a unique 16 digit number which could be then linked with information about the user held on a database for identity verification, medical records access and other uses. The insertion procedure is performed under local anesthetic in a physician's office. As an implanted device used for identification by a third party, it has generated controversy and debate. Destron Fearing, a subsidiary of Applied Digital Solutions, initially developed the technology for the VeriChip. According to Wired News online, and the Associated Press, there have been research articles over the last ten years that found a connection between the chips and possible cancer. When mice and rats were injected with glass-encapsulated RFID transponders, like those made by VeriChip, they "developed malignant, fast-growing, lethal cancers in up to 1% to 10% of cases" at the site at which the microchip was injected or to which it had migrated. However, the 10% rate was obtained with hemizygous p53-deficient mice, the counterpart of humans with the Li-Fraumeni syndrome, and rates near 1% were more typical. The Verichip corporation responded to this report, which caused a 40% drop in their stock value, by stating that rodent data had been provided to the FDA and did not reflect the effect of the chips in humans or pets. Dogs, alternatively, are more resistant to the formation of malignant soft tissue tumors in response to foreign body insult. Induction of sarcomas by foreign bodies has been reported in humans, and has been described as analogous to rodent foreign body-associated sarcomas and is fairly infrequent. Resolution of the question may be hindered by the long delay in onset of sarcoma induction or other deleterious side effects, analogous to the controversy in the mid 20th century over asbestos exposure and predisposition to mesothelioma. Tommy Thompson, the former Secretary of Health and Human Services, supports the VeriChip as a "useful tool in sharing medical information with health care providers in emergency situations". Thompson also sits on the board of directors of VeriChip's parent company Applied Digital Solutions. In June 2007, the American Medical Association declared that "implantable radio frequency identification (RFID) devices may help to identify patients, thereby improving the safety and efficiency of patient care, and may be used to enable secure access to patient clinical information" (Wikepedia).
