Image: Independent journalists to be forcibly micro-chipped by government after being labeled with a “mental disorder” for not believing propaganda

 

 

 

 It seems too far-fetched to be true, especially in the “land of the free” where the Constitution supposedly recognizes and enshrines certain “inalienable” human rights like individual choice and privacy, but it’s true nonetheless: In the United States, we have all come one step closer to being microchippedby mandate.

 

 

 

As reported by True Activist, about six years ago NBC Nightly News made a bold prediction: That by 2017, all Americans would be fitted with a radio frequency identifier (RFID) chip so that all of us could be tracked by the government in real time (except for the elites doing the tracking, of course). That prediction doesn’t appear to have come true—and with Hillary Clinton soundly defeated Nov. 8, it doesn’t look like it will happen anytime soon.
 
But what if it did? What if somehow some of us began to be “chipped,” sold to us as a way to ‘enhance public safety’ (which is always the excuse government uses to take away our rights and freedoms)?
 
Don’t look now, but it just happened.

The government will decide who is ‘mentally unfit’ and must be tracked

As noted by the Daily Caller, in recent days the U.S. House of Representatives “overwhelmingly” passed a bill that would require the U.S. attorney general to provide grants to local law enforcement agencies so they can create, establish and operate “locative tracking technology programs.”
 
In other words, the legislation—known as Kevin and Avonte’s Law—makes it “legal” for police to track certain U.S. citizens, despite the fact that their privacy is guaranteed by the Constitution’s Fourth Amendment.
 
The program, which many have likened to the opening of a Pandora’s Box of wider tracking in the future, gives local police the authority to use technology to locate “individuals with forms of dementia, such as Alzheimer’s disease, or children with developmental disabilities, such as autism, who have wandered from safe environments.”
 
Advocates of the legislation, including Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, and Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., say the measure can help police intervene to avert tragedies through the use of location technology before the mentally disabled wander into trouble.
 
But opponents, like Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, see it as a way for government to broadly interpret how it uses the technology.
 
“While this initiative may have noble intentions, ‘small and temporary’ programs in the name of safety and security often evolve into permanent and enlarged bureaucracies that infringe on the American people’s freedoms,” he said. That is exactly what we have here.
 
A safety problem exists for people with Alzheimer’s, autism and other mental health issues, so the fix, we are told, is to have the Department of Justice start a tracking program so we can use some device or method to track these individuals 24/7.”
 
Later, Gohmert said the bill’s sponsors implore lawmakers and the American people not to worry because it has language saying that any tracking device cannot be invasive and is totally voluntary.

What’s to stop some future authoritarian from widening a tracking program?

But he added that he was confused as to why Republican majorities in both chambers of Congress—the party historically at odds with big government and the massive federal bureaucracy—would be taken in and fooled into approving yet another massive, invasive government program.
 
He was also astounded that the GOP-controlled Congress would allow the tracking of people with “developmental disabilities”—a term that could have very broad applications—but not approve any tracking of illegal aliens, criminals and other malcontents.
 
Therein lies the rub: Who gets to define “mentally incapacitated?” And is that description only limited to persons who have been medically, clinically diagnosed with a “mental” problem?
 
Because in the recent past, Left-wing activists, politicians and academics have accused alternative media types of being mentally deranged and “propagandists.” Should alternative media journalists be tracked, for the public’s safety?
 
It’s not that farfetched anymore to think that could happen someday, especially when a “program” establishing ‘official’ tracking of ‘certain’ persons has already been implemented.

    ..posted this past April, 2016

    “These entities harvest and collect data for a variety of reasons.”

    – The scope of which, is mind blowing. Anyone reading this would do well to check out Language Technology in all it’s manifestations. Mind blowing.

    Sentiment Analysis – there’s someone in your head but it’s not you. Someone will label you, target you, manipulate you and either further you or destroy you.

    Watch your “language”. Someone else is. .. and What defines “mental illness”? Well, for one, the CDC does..

    THIS was in response to and commented on, in this article:

    /science-and-technology/2016/04/social-media-posts-can-predict-mental-illness-2817886.html

    ..in reference to this: “Social Web Mining and Sentiment Analysis For Mental Illness Detection.”

    Check THIS out: “Soon the data will be mined as a means to identify and monitor people who show signs of mental illness on line.”

    • Worth repeating:

      “Soon the data will be mined as a means to identify and monitor people who show signs of mental illness on line.”

  • So, the CDC does include a list of “conditions” which are considered mental illness.. but read this:

    Mental illnesses refer to disorders generally characterized by dysregulation of mood, thought, and/or behavior, as recognized by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, 4th edition, of the American Psychiatric Association (DSM-IV). Mood disorders are among the most pervasive of all mental disorders and include major depression, in which the individual commonly reports feeling, for a time period of two weeks or more, sad or blue, uninterested in things previously of interest, psychomotor retardation or agitation, and increased or decreased appetite since the depressive episode ensued. Learn more by viewing the pages below.

    Depression
    Anxiety
    Psychotic Disorders
    Bipolar Disorder

    This is the alarming part, regarding the Sentiment Analysis:

    “The team plans to apply social web mining and sentiment analysis methods to social media data to detect those who are at risk for mental illness. The data will be used to identify negative emotions that are either very strong or that frequently appear over extended periods of time, as well as changes in individual online activities such as suddenly posting very angry or strange messages.”

    Now the broader picture comes into focus. “angry or strange messages”.. meaning WHAT, exactly..? Sounds to me like virtually ANYONE can be targeted and labeled.

    This is what is happening. for real. holy crap.
