That microchips can be used to torture people and that they are mainly denied and unregulated has received some attention from scholars and the European Commission.
Gerald McGuire is one of the scientists involved in wireless communication systems that has warned the scientific community about the eventual misuse of implants, several times. In "Becoming borg to become immortal: Regulating brain implant technologies", published 2007, McGuire and his wife Ellen McGee, raise the question for the second time. The first time was in 1999. To read the full text publication, please follow the link. But they have published several articles on the same subject in which they explain the hazards with an unregulated implantable technology in our brains. Please read the entire publication because it's not only interesting, but it gives us at least one idea about how advanced implant technology is right now and what is already possible to do.
But there is another important publication from 2005, by European Group on Ethics (EGE), an opinion for the European Commission.
The idea of letting ICT devices get under our skin in order not just to repair but even to enhance human capabilities gives rise to science fiction visions with threat and/or benefit characteristics. However, in some cases, the implantation of microchips is already taking place with the potential for individual and social forms of control."
The idea is that there are and have been several warnings that the technology can be abused and might be abused as we speak. This interview can clarify that it is true. Jesse Beltran (President ICAACT) and Lars Drudgaard (European Regional Director ICAACT) are interviewed in Brussels, Belgium by Anton Glas.
"The reason ICAACT was started is that we had an interesting phenomenon in the United States where people were complaining about having non-consensual put in their body basically without their consent.... Basically what ICAACT.org does is.. Basically we help those victims provide evidence to prove what their claims are." Jesse Beltran says.
