    A while back, a discussion was started about micro-chips being implanted and a lot of consensus was that it could clear up security issues and speed up the process and anything that adds to efficiency would make us all stronger, safer...another bunch of us stated that this would eventually be used and accepted as a means of identifying criminals, sexual predators, and other undesirables and that would make us stronger and safer...And some of us said it would just be baby steps with a logical progression to tracking us all, first the criminal (already happening in a lot of places), then the sexual predators (already happening in a lot of places), now the HIV positive, next the ones with other contagious diseases, then the ones on what-ever watch-list de jour, then parking fine violators, firearms owners, pretty much everybody.

John Manangsang, a doctor who is helping to prepare a new healthcare regulation bill for Papua's provincial parliament, said that unusual measures were needed to combat the virus.
    "We in the government in Papua have to think hard on ways to provide protection to people from the spread of the disease," Manangsang told AFP.
    "Some of the infected people experience a change of behaviour and can turn more aggressive and would not think twice of infecting others," he alleged, saying lawmakers were considering various sanctions for these people.
    "Among one of the means being considered is the monitoring of those infected people who can pose a danger to others," Manangsang said.
    "The use of chip implants is one of the ways to do so, but only for those few who turn aggressive and clearly continue to disregard what they know about the disease and spread the virus to others," he said.
    A decision was still a long way off, he added.
    The head of the Papua chapter of the National AIDS Commission, Constant Karma, reportedly slammed the proposal as a violation of human rights.
    "People with HIV/AIDS are not like sharks under observation so that they have to be implanted with microchips to monitor their movements," he told the Jakarta Post on Tuesday.
    "Any form of identification of people with HIV/AIDS violates human rights."
    According to data from Papua's health office cited by the Post, the province has just over 3,000 people living with HIV/AIDS. Some 356 deaths have been reported. Papua has a population of about 2.5 million.

    "We in the government in Papua have to think hard on ways to provide protection to people from the spread of the disease,"

    And so, logically, all non infected persons will have to have a RFID reader to tell if they are (or are not) going to participate in "certain risky behaviors." Nice trick, that, for the reader manufacturers.
