Let’s all take a moment of silence for the Swedish people who have chosen to have their privacy all snatched away completely.
Courtesy of Business Insider:
- About 3,000 Swedish people have inserted a microchip into their bodies to make their daily lives easier.
- People with the implants can wave their hand near a machine to unlock their office or gym, rather than taking out a key card.
- So-called biohacking is on the rise as more people depend on wearable technology and interconnected devices.
- Many microchip users are not concerned with hacking or surveillance at this point.
Yesterday, I recorded a podcast with my boy James Maverick of Maverick Traveler. He posed an interesting question to me:
“Would you take $2-3k a month right NOW for the rest of your life, or work a 9-5 until you’re 50 and then get $1 million?
…and, what about $1 BILLION if you made it to 70?”
My answer was easy.
Give me the $2-3k/month right this second.
Nothing, no price, is worth the price of freedom. That’s why I’ve been very wary of scaling too quickly with my current business. I’ve somehow managed to design a completely stress and deadline free business that makes me 5x + (and counting) what I made at my freedom-suckin’ corporate job.
Would I double that income for 3 times the headaches?
Not a chance.
The minute my freedom and flexibility disappears is the day I’ll be scaling back.
Whereas the people of Sweden seem eager not only to report to work, but then to be given an electronic shock collar embedded into their wrist as a “perk”.
Just goes to show:
Ya can’t fix stupid.
But you’re on this list, so I know you’d never fall for the Trojan horse the Swedes just walked into.
And that’s why I’d recommend you avoid going to countries like that.
Instead, go to the places I talk about in DANET.
Your price of freedom isn’t worth not having to take your keys out to get scanned in at the gym.
Details about breaking free, getting laid, and getting paid.
So you won’t ever have to be in a situation where you have to listen to the HR department’s crap about how embedding a chip in your wrist is a “benefit”.
