The Future of Microchip Implants in Humans
"Brian Green, director of technology ethics at Santa Clara University’s Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, has expressed concerns over the ethics of microchip implants. While microchips aren't new technology with pets, Green states that in a world where retailers, credit card companies, and employers require mandatory implants, the country can become a 'surveillance state.'
"Green also predicts that should the surveillance state nightmare come to fruition, individuals who decline microchip implants risk being marginalized and walled off from modern conveniences. He adds that individuals should always have the right to opt-out of implants without fear of persecution."
