Unsecured Security

In an ever-increasing effort to provide 'security' be it security of the mind, security of the body, or security of the family, science is providing new and innovative ways to take existing technology and apply it to new things. Some of these things plain scare me.

Take this for example.

There are now more than one school district giving children RFID chips. This is in addition to heart patients getting chips implanted into their chests, and any other number of new 'security' applications of the long-existing RFID technology.

When does it stop? Five years from now when my first child is born will the government attempt to insert a chip into my child's brain before the skull is fully developed? What is going to happen?

Frankly, I am both angry and scared that my family and my life are going to be unsecured by security.
