Thousands In Sweden Have Implanted Microchips Under Their Skin

More than 3,000 people in Sweden have implanted tiny microchips beneath their skin to replace their credit card information, identification, keys, train tickets, among other everyday items, Agence France-Press announced Sunday.

The implant, which is about the size of a grain of rice, utilizes Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, also found in credit cards, debit cards, key fobs, and smartphones. This technology is considered “passive,” which means the microchip stores data that can be read by other devices but cannot read data themselves.

This might resemble an Orwellian nightmare to many, but in Sweden, residents are flocking to get these implanted microchips by “convenience over concerns of potential personal data violations,” AFP explained.

Governments in Europe quietly experimented with embedding the small chip in humans in 2015 in Sweden, and several other countries in the region, before the recent rollout.

“Swedes have gone on to be very active in microchipping, with scant debate about issues surrounding its use, in a country keen on new technology and where the sharing of personal information is held up as a sign of a transparent society,” AFP notes.

Ulrika Celsing is one of 3,000 Swedes with a microchip implanted in her hand — a process called “biohacking.” The 28-year-old told AFP, “It was fun to try something new and to see what one could use it for to make life easier in the future.”

Celsing explained that the microchip has turned into an “electronic handbag” and has even replaced her gym card.

She can even book a train ticket online, and then use her hand like a ticket to board a train.

While the tiny microchips can store personal data that can be extracted by other devices, they are considered passive — which means the chip cannot read data themselves. Meanwhile, some still have concerns that the progression of this technology could jeopardize personal security.

“I don’t think our current technology is enough to get chip hacked,” Celsing told AFP. “But I may think about this again in the future. I could always take it out then.”

” Sweden has a track record on the sharing of personal information, which may have helped ease the microchip’s acceptance among the Nordic country’s 10 million-strong population. Citizens have long accepted the sharing of their personal details, registered by the social security system, with other administrative bodies, while people can find out each others’ salaries through a quick phone call to the tax authority,” AFP said.

There are still serious privacy and security concerns associated with biohacking Swedes. Regarding privacy, corporations will have unprecedented access to personal data of consumers and or employees.

In the fast-approaching dystopic future, corporations and government could soon be collecting private data on their citizens via implanted microchips.

Also, the security risk behind any wireless technology leaves the device vulnerable to hackers, who will eventually discover wireless methods to steal personal data stored on the microchip.

However, Jowan Osterlund, a piercings specialist and advocate of biohacking Swedes, “brushes off fears of data misuse and conspiracy theories,” said AFP.

Osterlund argues if Swedes carried their data on them all the time, they would be in better control of where their data went. He has been an organizer of “implant party,” a gathering where the piercings specialist injects microchips into millennials.

What could go wrong?… Sweden is in the beginning innings of biohacking its civilian population and ushering in a dystopic future, where government and corporations will have an unprecedented amount of data on its population. In other words, the country is turning its citizens into cyborgs.

It amazes me that people cannot see through this garbage, to recognize what it's really all about.

Most of this type of technology is packaged and sold as being "more convenient", as if a little bit of INconvenience was akin to a light form of torture.

The governments of the world are engaged in a massive spying program, to collect every piece of generated data about every individual alive on this planet.

I would, just once like to hear a valid, Good reason for doing so; despite every possible angle I've considered, I have yet to find one.

"Protecting us"? It seems to me, that I'm better off without their protection, as their data mining only seems to be useful, after the fact.

In other words, it has never been used to PREVENT: a terrorist attack, a mass-shooting event, or a major crime that WASN'T either staged/false-flag, or already infiltrated with old-fashioned detective work.

ALL of their reasoning does not stand up under any real scrutiny, which leaves few reasons for it, and none of them good.

Looks like the "Law of Jante" was the crack needed to social engineer Swedes into cattle.

The ten rules state:

  1. You're not to think you are anything special.
  2. You're not to think you are as good as we are.
  3. You're not to think you are smarter than we are.
  4. You're not to imagine yourself better than we are.
  5. You're not to think you know more than we do.
  6. You're not to think you are more important than we are.
  7. You're not to think you are good at anything.
  8. You're not to laugh at us.
  9. You're not to think anyone cares about you.
  10. You're not to think you can teach us anything.

Exploiting Swedes' "superiority complex", kikes easily manipulated them into adopting things that would make them different than anyone else.

This gives a whole new meaning to Stockholm syndrome... feeling of trust in the crooked nosed oppressors.

*Some RFID Cracked 10 f**ing years ago already*

How they hacked it: The MiFare RFID crack explained

MAR 19, 2008 1:00 AM PT

Last month, the Dutch government issued a warning about the security of access keys based on the ubiquitous MiFare Classic RFID chip. The warning comes on the heels of an ingenious hack, spearheaded by Henryk Plotz, a German researcher, and Karsten Nohl, a doctoral candidate in computer science at the University of Virginia, that demonstrated a way to crack the encryption on the chip.

Millions upon millions of MiFare Classic chips are used worldwide in contexts such as payment cards for public transportation networks throughout Asia, Europe and the U.S. and in building-access passes.

The report asserts that systems employing MiFare will likely be secure for another two years, since hacking the chip seems to be an involved and expensive process. But in a recent report published by Nohl, titled "Cryptanalysis of Crypto-1," he presents an attack that recovers secret keys in mere minutes on an average desktop PC.

You'd be so lucky as to be Swedish

Theirs is an outlier culture: off the charts in terms of rationality & focus on individual well being. They may be the most fair-minded people in the world

They are being taken advantage of & lied to. They are a small country with limited media options & are reliant on Anglo-American propaganda

It's not unlike the loss of the Elves from Middle Earth. Get on plane full of Swedes, & you'll feel like you belong in baggage class. A beautiful & noble people who need to awake before they're extinct

focus on individual well being

 

The Law of Jante, Swedish: Jantelagen; is the description of a pattern of group behaviour towards individuals within Nordic countries that negatively portrays and criticises individual success and achievement as unworthy and inappropriate.

Used generally in colloquial speech in the Nordic countries as a sociological term to describe a condescending attitude towards individuality and success, the term refers to a mentality that diminishes individual effort and places all emphasis on the collective, while simultaneously denigrating those who try to stand out as individual achievers.

That ancient text sure is coming alive as we move forward into the land of self-destruction as a societies collapse beginning with the slaughter of children in the womb to the slaughter of the family by feminazi's and so forth.

China, the home of socialism/communism, the greatest import in America, makes the Swedes look like an Atari game system.

We are catching up fast in the USSofA.

Probably has something to do with the food and water (maybe The Chemtrails too).

 

~~~~))) .. Feeding Your Inner Reptile In Modern America .. (((~~~~

 

The last thing you want to give your inner reptile (or budding little batch of reptile chilln) is good nourishing people food.

No, no, no, no, no. ....... Don't ever give your inner reptile a fresh garden salad or fresh home made bread. .... Your inner reptile might roll over and go claws up if you feed it something like that. You know, with the little x's on the eyes and its tongue hanging out all limp and shriveled ....... My inner reptile did that once and just as I was ready to give the poor little fellow a decent burial it jumped up, hissed "April Fool!" and scurried off to sun bathe on a rock. ...... It left the x's on its eyes though so the sun wouldn't damage its reptile retinas, I think.

Reptiles aren't really dumb, just heartless and hungry all of the time.

Proper Reptile Food Comes From McDonalds In Super Duper Sizes, Different Rockwell Hardnesses And Various Yummy Reptile Flavors

Reptiles live with or are beholden to four motivations. ...The four Fs as we natural history creepy crawly, scaly critter buffs like to say. .. Fight, flight, fucking and food. ..... The first three Fs a reptile has to take care of on its own. (Although I have woken up after a hard long night of heavy drinking and found myself sleeping next to a reptile or two in the past who swore she (or they) enjoyed it. .. Whatever 'it' was. ... I'm hoping 'it' was the body heat and the rhythm of my drunken snorting that lulled her (or them) to sleep and not anything to do with any Fs, Cs, Es, Hs. or Ss besides sleep.

The food F, you, as an inner reptile owner, may be required to supply on occasion.

So make sure what you feed your inner reptile doesn't make it grow into a monster by giving it real people nourishment or energy. .. Inner reptiles get their energy from Wifi FYI.

Good thing we humans have more to our lives than four Fs to keep us motivated. .. We are five Fers now. ..5F & 5G (coming soon). .. The inner reptile four Fs plus a fone with an Internet connection on steroids.

You know you are feeding your whole family of inner reptiles right when your wife lays a cache of eggs on the living room couch and she wants you to cuddle with them while she goes out to defend off the nosey mongoose bitch from across the street.

Live Hard, Don't Forget To Post A Selfie Video With Your Inner Reptile Enjoying A Reptile Happy Meal On Your FaceHook Wall. .. Other Inner Reptiles Are Just Dying To Watch You Eat A Cardboard Burger, Plasta-Fries And A Chemshake,..N U B Luv'n It Lik'a Hung Re Tile Tard!, Die Free

Even thought he book of revelations is hard to understand, here it is:

Revelation 13:

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Revelation 14:

And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

 

Notice that the King James version said in, not on the hand.

And my guess as who is to receive the number 666 is Jerod Kushner.  His family owns the 666 5th avenue building in Manhattan, NY. 

He is also Jewish, is Donald Trump's son in law and is very much involved in Zionist activities including the movement of the US embassy to Jerusalem. 

I hope people in the US start reading these two passages and reject the mark if they try to force it on us.  But this article will be changing in the future from "Thousands in Sweden" to "Millions in the US".  The plan for the chip is to replace credit cards and all currency.  Currency will become digital and all medical records and everything else will become digital.  That way they will be able to know everything we spend our money on and where we are most of the time.  If they include GPS in these chips, which they will, they will know where we are all the time. I can go on and on, but the plan is very much in motion.  Just the technology needs to catch up with this plan of chipping everyone. The result? Total control and total monitoring of everyone. I'll stop here.  Do the research.

The Swedes and my dog now have something in common

My dog sits when told and goes quietly to the Vets to be injected with (basically) insecticide (to keep away fleas). My guess is it'll be the same when the time comes to be euthanasied .... I wonder if the Swedes have been equally domesticated to servility and trust in their masters?

Don't forget, "If you do nothing wrong, you have nothing to fear".

This is just an RFID chip - getting hold of a reader is childs-play, and can be put anywhere. Has anyone lost their credit card details to a chip reader yet, just by walking past one built into a doorway? https://www.amazon.com/Reader-LANMU-125khz-Contactless-Proximity/dp/B07…  - $10

I expect credit card information is marginally more difficult to collect, but anywhere a credit card might be expected to pass could have a reader which would take all the info - still need a pin, but that is what a camera is for :-) Always lots of CCTV in every shop, nowadays. Would you, or the shop owner, recognise an additional one as being extracurricular?

I can't believe bad guys haven't started doing this yet......do you trust the minimum wage grunt on the till with the nose ring and tattoos? Do you? What about his cleancut girlfriend?
