Totalitarian Society - The RFID Chipping of Life

Wal-Mart is planning to insert RFID chips inside every indivihual pair of pants and underwear and this plan of theirs has worried privacy advocates. RFID chips are small tracking devices which can be removed but not switched off and privacy advocates are worried that if they are inserted in the garments they could be misued by criminals or unscrupulous marketers.

Wal-Mart plans to install these chips from next month on trial basis to make inventory control much more efficient. If the trial is a success they plan to use it on more products.
