Microchipping kids? They’re not pets
https://www.spectator.com.au/2022/08/mi … -not-pets/

Society should adopt a general rule: if the World Economic Forum thinks something is a good idea, we do the opposite.

As part of its Davos 2022 thought-fest, an article appeared on the World Economic Forum site penned by Kathleen Philips, Vice President of R&D for imec and General Manager of its Eindhoven site in the Netherlands, regarding the topic of transhumanism.

Included in this article was the casual suggestion that we might one day consider microchipping children ‘for their safety’.

Pretty much every dangerous and terrible idea is ‘for our safety’ these days, but even the pro-bubble-wrap helicopter parents stopped and lofted an eyebrow. While they don’t mind fitting their kids with backpacks that have a leash hanging off which they use to walk their children like dogs – at least the backpacks can be taken off.

Once we start talking about altering humanity out of choice, rather than medical necessity, civilisation needs to have a different conversation.
