Swedes Inserting Microchips Into Themselves

Thousands of people in Sweden have inserted microchips, which can function as contactless credit cards, key cards and even rail cards, into their bodies. 


Once the chip is underneath your skin, there is no longer any need to worry about misplacing a card or carrying a heavy wallet. But for many people, the idea of carrying a microchip in their body feels more dystopian than practical. Some have suggested that Sweden’s strong welfare state may be the cause of this recent trend. But actually, the factors behind why roughly 3,500 Swedes have had microchips implanted in them are more complex than you might expect. 


This phenomenon reflects Sweden’s unique biohacking scene. If you look underneath the surface, Sweden’s love affair with all things digital goes much deeper than these microchips.

The term biohackers refers to those amateur biologists who conduct experiments in biomedicine, but do so outside of traditional institutions – such as universities, medical companies and other scientifically controlled environments. Just as computer hackers hack computers, biohackers hack anything biological. 

Biohacking is also a culture and a diverse one, with many different subgroups – all with different types of interests, goals and ideologies. But within this diversity there are two main groups: “wetware hackers” and transhumanists.




Wetware hackers are citizen science hobby biologists who build laboratory equipment from household utensils. They conduct so called “frugal science”, where they find inexpensive solutions that will improve the living standards for people in developing countries. But they also do more playful experiments where plants are genetically modified to become fluorescent, or algae is used to make new types of beer.

The other group are the transhumanists, who focus on enhancing and improving the human body – with the aim, in the long run, of improving the human race. Only through bettering ourselves – and escaping biological boundaries – will humans be able to compete with AI in the future. 




Often, different biohacking scenes reflect the different societies and cultures in which they develop. So, for example, European biohackers generally differ from their North American counterparts

North American groups are concerned with developing alternatives to the established healthcare practices. European groups, meanwhile, are more focused on finding ways of helping people in developing countries or engaging in artistic bio-projects




But Swedish biohacking culture actually differs from the rest of Europe. Swedish biohackers are generally part of the transhumanist movement. And it is the transhumanists – or more specifically the subgroup “grinders” – who have been inserting NFC chips somewhere between the thumb and the index finger of thousands of Swedes. These are the same microchips that have been used for decades to track animals and packages.

So why are Swedes so happy to put microchips into their body? One theory put forward is that Swedes are more prone to sharing their personal details because of the way the Swedish social security system is structured. 




Over the past two decades, the Swedish government has invested heavily in technology infrastructure – and it shows. The Swedish economy is now largely based on digital export, digital services and digital tech innovations. And Sweden has become one of the most successful countries in the world at creating and exporting digital products. Notable companies, such as Skype and Spotify, were founded in Sweden.

Merkel Union Partner Accused Of "German Brexit" Plot

Merkel, Juncker, Tusk now preside over fragmenting, doomed EU  

SPUTNIK
06/24/2018

Social Democratic Party leader Andrea Nahles launched a verbal tirade at the Christian Social Union, the Bavarian sister party of the ruling Christian Democratic Union, for its “shabby” course of action. She slammed the German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, who is pushing for stricter border controls, as “a threat to Europe.”


"Mother" Merkel: On the way out
The Chairwoman of the German Social Democrats (SPD), Andrea Nahles, has promised to oppose CSU leader and Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, whose proposals on turning away from Germany asylum seekers, registered in other countries, has caused a row within the CDU/CSU alliance and put the coalition government in jeopardy. According to the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, at her party congress in the German city of Bochum, Nahles pointed out that debates over refugee policy, prompted by the Bavarian politicians, remind her of eurosceptic attitudes in the UK which eventually led to Brexit. 


She claimed that Seehofer and another leading CSU figure, Bavaria's leader Markus Söder, are "on the way to a German Brexit, which means nothing less than the end of Europe."

"We have watched the UK over the years with occasional irony, like we sometimes ridicule the Free State [Bavaria] in the south," she admitted, as cited by the FAZ newspaper, adding that one shouldn’t be surprised if the citizens take these “years of buzz” seriously and oppose Europe.




Keeping this in mind, she called on her fellow social democrats to demonstrate “resistance from the very beginning” of such processes. Nahles promise to oppose Seehofer, whom she called "a threat to Europe.” She accused the Interior Minister from Bavaria of trying to settle political scores rather than solving the problem.

"This is obviously a power struggle with Chancellor Merkel, and this obviously shadows everything else," she claimed, calling it a "shabby" course of action and insisting that Germany deserved more than a "fight among political parties for territory."




The matter is to be discussed at a coalition committee meeting in Berlin on June 26, initiated by the SPD, which could strike the coalition agreement with the CDU/CSU alliance only this March after several months of talks. She hopes to make the CSU give a clear respond on where it really stands.

"If we look at the chaotic world, then it is perfectly clear that no country can do it alone. We all need each other to meet these challenges. In addition, I would like to hear a clear commitment from the CSU – does it stand for it?" she said, claiming SPD was for "a humane, a realistic and a sober course in refugee policy in strict accordance with our rule of law."




However, she also admitted that Germany can’t accept everyone who comes there, stating that asylum procedures must be designed for taking decisions quickly and safely, and slammed both CDU and CSU for failures in the migration policy over the past 13 years, as they have led the government in Germany.

Amid the latest power clash with the CSU over the immigration issue and border controls, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her CDU party accepted an ultimatum presented by Seehofer to meet the decision on his “Migration Masterplan.” He proposes to turn migrants away at the German border if they had already been refused asylum or have been registered in other EU states, while Merkel, previously criticized for her signature “open border” policy, is seeking to opt for a universal solution for the EU’s migration crisis and reach deals with Italy and Greece among others. 


Merkel's legacy: The destruction on European culture and society

On July 1, after the EU summit, Merkel is due to inform the CDU leadership about the state of her talks with the European states that have been most affected by the migration crisis. If she fails to find a solution to the issue at the European level, he threatens to use his “ministerial authorization” to unilaterally implement the “master plan” and order border police to start turning back asylum seekers.

In the wake of the 2015 migration crisis in Europe, when thousands of migrants from Africa and the Middle East headed to Europe at an unprecedented level, Merkel announced an “open borders” policy in Germany, promising to take in refugees. 


Fall of the Merkelites accelerates the destruction of the globalist enslavement plan for middle classes

This turned Germany into a major recipient for the newcomers. In 2015, the number of refugees in Germany exceeded 1 million, but later decreased, as the country welcomed 325,400 asylum-seekers, accounting for almost 60 percent of the 540,000 refugees resettled in 2017.

Syrian Government Steps Up Offensive In South

The government campaign in the south-western Syrian region bordering Jordan and the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights comes despite US warnings of "serious repercussions" for anyone violating a de-escalation agreement in place since last July.


On the run: CIA financed, trained Syrian "rebels"
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 16 people had been killed in government strikes, including nine children. At least 12,000 people had been displaced by fighting in the area, according to the war monitor. The de-escalation zone was negotiated by Russia, the Syrian Government's main ally, Washington and Jordan.

Rebel factions, meanwhile, said they responded by firing missiles at a government air base in the adjacent Sweida province. 


US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said on Thursday that Washington was "deeply troubled" by Syrian government operations in the area and called on Moscow to "restrain" its ally from further actions that risk broadening the conflict.

South-western Syria is a mix of government and rebel-controlled areas, with rebels controlling parts of Daraa city and areas along the border with Jordan and the occupied Golan Heights.

Russia and the Syrian Government have been pressing for an agreement with the rebels in the area to restore government authority, including over the commercial crossing with Jordan that has been out of its control for years. 

Talks over extending the de-escalation zone have faltered, although Mr Assad said last week that Moscow, the US and Israel continued discussing a settlement in the area.




Israel wants Iranian-backed militias out of the border area. Jordan wants to avoid a humanitarian crisis at its borders with the renewed violence and is eager to see the border crossing with Syria reopened. The UN estimates that 750,000 Syrians live in the region, which has been spared the devastation that hit other parts of Syria in the last three years.

The Russian Ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Zasypkin, told the Lebanese al-Akhbar daily newspaper that Israel feared the presence of Hezbollah and Iran in the south.




"We say that the Syrian army, with support from the Russian troops, is regaining control of its territories and restoring the state authority there," Mr Zasypkin said. "There is no justification for Israel to carry out any action that would hamper fighting terrorism."

'We Possess Many Weapons: Rebel Commander

A rebel commander in the south accused Iran of trying to torpedo the de-escalation agreement and vowed fierce resistance. "We possess many weapons," Colonel Nassim Abu Arra, commander of the Youth of Sunna Forces group, said.

Rebels in the south-west have received support including arms from Mr Assad's foreign foes during the seven-year-long war.

Analysts of the conflict believe this support continued even after US President Donald Trump decided last year to shut down a military aid program run by the CIA, though it may have been scaled back.
Mr Assad has this year recaptured the last remaining enclaves of insurgent territory near the capital Damascus and the city of Homs, including the densely populated eastern Ghouta region.

But there are still large areas outside his control. Apart from the south-west, the rebels also hold a swathe of north-west Syria. Insurgent groups backed by Turkey hold parts of the northern border area.

And the quarter of Syria east of the Euphrates is controlled by an alliance of Kurdish and Arab militias supported by the United States.

The United States also has a base at Tanf, near Syria's borders with Iraq and Jordan, which controls the Damascus-Baghdad highway.

The Syrian Government has denied using barrel bombs, containers filled with explosive material that are dropped from helicopters and which cannot be accurately aimed.
