(Natural News) If ever there was a time to resist the onslaught of technological “progress” to protect the sovereignty of humanity, it is now. Several companies in Europe are paving the way for what can only be described as the “mark of the beast” — implantable microchips that are now being injected into employees’ hands in order to give them easy access to enter buildings, perform various office functions, and even pay for their lunches.
It might not be a common trend just yet, but microchips in the body — something the Holy Bible warns about as damning one’s soul — is creeping its way into the mainstream. The U.K.’s Daily Mail recently reported on a marketing firm out of Belgium, known as “NewFusion,” that already uses the technology in its employees. Another company out of Sweden, the same report indicates, is doing the same thing.
According to experts, a small chip roughly the size of a grain of rice is inserted between the thumb and index finger of an employee’s hand. This chip holds personal and security information that is transmitted wirelessly from the hand to nearby receivers that use it to perform various functions or to engage in transactions.
The chips that the Belgian company uses cost about $106 each, and they allow employees to access the company’s IT systems and headquarters without a typical key fob or other external device. The “perks” of the technology include not having to haul around a wallet or a set of keys — simply wave your hand and, voila, your wish is granted.
Will everyone on Planet Earth eventually have to be microchipped in order to live?
Though injectable microchips are not widely used in the U.S., it is probable that what begins in Europe will eventually end up here. Reports indicate that some 10,000 people throughout the world already have the mark inside their bodies, and with the right marketing many others will likely follow, believing it to be “cutting-edge” and convenient for going about one’s daily life with simplicity.
Once more people get microchipped voluntarily at work, many of them will likely be more willing to get microchipped by their government, which appears to be the ultimate goal. Soon, it will no longer be possible for individuals to buy and sell, for instance, or hold a job without first having a RFID chip inserted into their hands.
This is how it all starts, of course: first something controversial is voluntary, until eventually it becomes mandatory. This is why conscientious objectors to this type of thing need to speak up now — and loudly — to make sure that it does not become the norm. Microchipping is more the type of thing you would expect in cattle than in human beings.
The private sector’s gradual adoption of RFID microchipping technology for employees appears to be a test run for the eventual unveiling of government-forced RFID microchipping of citizens — for “our own good,” most likely. Is this the type of world in which you and your family want to live?
The military is already testing RFID microchips for soldiers, as are drug companies like GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) that plan to use microchips for “medical purposes.” It is only a matter of time before microchipping becomes the logical next step for maintaining an advanced and civilized society.

“You might say that sounds crazy, but if you’ve been to Disneyland or Disneyworld any time in the last decade, then you will see how ready and willing people are to scan their fingers and give up their biometric information for convenience,” writes Melissa Dykes for The Daily Sheeple. “Sure, there’s an opt-out option, but does anyone actually bother or do the majority just go along with whatever they’re told to do for their ‘safety and convenience?’”

Lawmaker introduces bill to prohibit forced microchipping
(Natural News) It’s not beyond the realm of possibility, given today’s technology and love for the nanny state among tens of millions of Americans, that someday we might all be required to be “chipped” – that is, implanted with a tiny microchip under our skin so that we can be constantly tracked by government at all levels.
And because of the potentiality, one lawmaker from Nevada is introducing preemptive legislation to prohibit the practice, at least in her state.
As reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, state Sen. Becky Harris believes the day may not be far off when everyone would be forced to accept a microchip. And whether the reasons for the requirement would be law enforcement purposes, ‘public safety’ or just a matter of convenience, she believes it comes dangerously close to infringing on our personal privacy.
“As I began to look into the issue, I was surprised with the merit that I believe the issue warrants,” she told members of the Senate Judiciary Committee in recent days. Her legislation, Senate Bill 109, would make it a Class C felony to force someone to accept a microchip that serves as an RFID – radio frequency identifier, technology that has been around for some time now.

Harris further noted that sales of subcutaneous RFID microchips around the globe are increasing every year. She said that an Australian firm sold some 10,000 of them last year in kits where consumers are shown how to self-implant them.
“Each kit costs about $100 and includes a tag and an injection tool,” she told her colleagues, adding that, according to a story she had read in The Wall Street Journal, anywhere from 30,000 to 50,000 chips had been sold around the world.
In fact, she noted further, there are some European companies that require their employees to be chipped, for security. Employees of some firms in Belgium and Sweden use chips to identify employees and grant them access to facilities.
“It’s done under the idea to unlock doors or use copy machines or maybe pay for lunch, you could use your hand,” she told her colleagues on the Judiciary Committee.
Harris’ legislation was fashioned after other bills that have passed in at least 10 other states. She said it would not prevent voluntary chipping, just would not allow companies or institutions of government to require chipping.
For at least 10 years, microchipping technology has been available to owners of pets, who have them chipped so that in case they run away or are stolen, they can be located. Also, some believe that people with certain medical conditions, like Alzheimer’s disease, might benefit from being chipped because they sometimes wander off and forget where they are.
Dr. Katherine Albrecht, an anti-RFID advocate, privacy researcher, and co-author of the book, “Spychips: How Major Corporations and Government Plan to Track Your Every Purchase and Watch Your Every Move,” notes that electronic tracking is practically everywhere now, and that includes on primary school campuses.
“Schools, of all places, should be teaching children how to participate in a free democratic society, not conditioning them to be tracked like cattle,” Albrecht, who is also director of Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering, said in a statement, as reported by Fox News. “Districts planning to use RFID should brace themselves for a parent backlash, protests and lawsuits.” (RELATED: See how independent journalists may someday be forcibly microchipped at NaturalNews.com)
She was joined by the Electronic Privacy Information Center, which also opposes tracking of students. In a paper published with Albrecht’s organization and others concerned about protecting privacy in the Digital Age, EPIC and the other groups urged “that schools adopt robust privacy safeguards” if they move forward with RFID tracking of students.
Schools using tracking technology are not proposing that students be chipped. They are, however, required to carry electronic RFID-emitting cards so their locations can be tracked.
Two things come to mind in all of this: 1) That subcutaneous tracking technology is actually making inroads in various societies voluntarily; and 2) That it has become so normalized in many ways that state and local governments actually have to write and pass legislation preventing the mandatory chipping of citizens – in America, no less.
This just goes to prove that some people are either born, or haplessly conditioned, to live as sheep.
