“Just stay home for 15 days and then we can go back to normal.”
“Just wear a mask and then we can go back to normal.”
“Just get your vaccine shots and then we can go back to normal.”
“Just get your booster shot and then we can go back to normal.”
“Just present your vaccine passport and then you’ll be allowed to live a normal life.”
“Just get the microchip and then you’ll be allowed to live a normal life.”
It’s not such a crazy idea:
“Beep boop beep: Your vaccination record has been verified 🤖“

They already have the technology for it.
How much of a stretch is it to imagine the government saying, “We are alarmed by the rise of falsified vaccine passports, so we are implementing a foolproof system to keep track of vaccinations. This microchip will ensure that vaccine records are accurate and no longer prone to fraud.”
You know they want to.
And you know there are plenty of people out there who are so terrified of Covid that they would be happy to get microchipped. It would be yet another way for them to signal their virtue and obedience to the state.
Joe Rogan recently said that masks are the Democrat version of the red MAGA hat.
Next up: the microchip?
Personally, I think this would backfire spectacularly on the government if they ever did try to chip people.
The vaccine mandates are already backfiring and causing people to push back and resist.
A microchip would be a bridge way too far.
It’s too obviously totalitarian. It’s too obviously villainous and Orwellian.
While I do think there are some people out there that would support the microchip, I don’t think it’s anywhere near a majority. It’s probably no more than 10-15% of the population.
The more important thing is that I believe there is a far larger number of people in this country–probably a majority–who are strongly, vehemently and viscerally opposed to a microchip vaccine passport. As in, they would raise high hell if the government ever tried to impose it.
If the government tried to make people get microchipped, I think it would cause a revolt. A real revolt. It would be the final straw. It would cross a line for a great many people.
And I think the government knows this. They’ve already pissed a ton of people off over the vaccine mandates. A microchip mandate would cause a large number of people to go full 1776.
The government knows they can’t do it. At least not yet.
But if they do try it, all bets are off.
