Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Reactions to Microchipping Employees

Some of my reactions to the news that at one company is planning to install microchips in some of their employees:

  • Incredulous stare.
  • The Book of Revelations looks a little less insane now that we have the Mark of the Beast.
  • By the way, why would microchips have to be implanted instead of worn? Is this an attempt at giving the employees something that's hard to remove?
  • Is this what happens when people who are taught that businesses can get away with anything grow up to run businesses?
  • If someone quits rather than do this … will he become a poster boy for government regulation of worker agreements?
  • If he turns out to be a “fundie” worried about both the Mark of the Beast and gay marriage, will the Left abruptly drop him … followed by the Right using him as a poster boy?
  • If his church opens a soup kitchen for illegal aliens, will the Right then drop his case? Will both herds of independent minds start marching in opposite directions?
  • On the other hand, maybe he'll be a poster boy for his next employer: They can advertise “WE HIRE PEOPLE OF PRINCIPLE!”
