The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) latest dystopian nightmare is here, and it’s being spun as a “superpower” aimed at helping children.
The WEF is always looking forward when it comes to human development (instead of fixing current problems) and focusing on augmented realities as a very real part of our future, according to their its guest article from WEF contributor and Vice President of R&D at IMEC Kathleen Philips.
The next natural step to detach from reality as God made it, proposed by Philips? Microchipping ourselves and our children, apparently.
Philips’ article focuses on the application of “implants,” as she terms them, in healthcare and security. The issue? Her whole argument reads like microchips are going to be part of normal society.
“Superheroes have been dominating big and small screens for a while, but there’s a subtle change happening. Many children expect to develop superpowers themselves,” Philips writes as the opening argument in favor of microchipping everyone. She then says that “we’re already making the first strides toward an ‘augmented society.’” Presumably we’ll all have super powers?
While nominal forms of augmented realities are already part of our day-to-day lives, like wearables that track our fitness or goggles that help us see at night, there are clear ethical issues with normalizing the insertion of gadgets under our skin to deal with the agony of our own humanity.
At no point in the piece does Philips offer up an example of these myriad ethical issues with microchipping children, or anyone, like the fact we could potentially give up our free will to whomever gains control of our personal “implants.” Evidently ethics are the only thing that will get in the way of a microchipped society’s full potential.
Or, as Philips spins it, “the limits on implants are going to be set by ethical arguments rather than scientific capacity. For example, should you implant a tracking chip in your child? There are solid, rational reasons for it, like safety. Would you actually do it? Is it a bridge too far?” (RELATED: Footage Appears To Show Jack Posobiec Being Questioned By Swiss Police)
There really isn’t much in their discussion to suggest that the WEF is anything but a huge supporter of making the human species beholden to computers that have the capacity to turn us into robots. The forum even went so far as to issue a disclaimer at the start of the article that suggests people, like me, and my ethical opinion on microchips in humans, are a form of “misinformation.”
I just seriously can’t believe this piecewas allowed to be published, or, was this what they were planning at Davos this year? The best way to stealth roll-out the social acceptance of being microchipped like pets?
I can’t wait to see what other amazing WEF concepts come out to perpetuate the collapse of current civilization. My gut tells me that microchips and sniff tests really are just the tip of this crazy iceberg.
