The Guardian Asks: The rise of microchipping: are we ready for technology to get under the skin?
We remember when this was first becoming a story, a decade or so ago. Back then many scoffed. Now it’s quickly becoming reality. Health information, credit scores, legal status, all sorts of things will likely be stored on these chips if we allow them to be.

“This experiment has so far happened in a wealthy country, among very digitally savvy people,” he said. “And while having a chip may play out nicely for well-educated people in Sweden who are part of a digital hub, I question how this will play out for, say, a worker in a warehouse.”
Translation: “Smart” people will be fine with being tagged like cattle. You know, because they are “tech savvy”. The great unwashed? They may buck. But they’re dumb anyway.
