The Living Force
I have often wondered about the popular tales that Swedes would implant chips under their skins (You can more often read about it in abroad media, especially in alternative media, but not really in Sweden) Or the reports of so called "chip parties", gatherings where people implant them. I have never met anyone, never heard of anyone, not even heard from others who know anyone who has done it. The claim that it would be "increasingly popular".... i consider to be BULL.
The latest push, is nothing else than artificially created propaganda, trying to put the idea of (low tech) chips under the skin in people being useful, or making them wanting to do it. Well, 'Aftonbladet' (as well 'Expressen') are boulevard gossip low-level newspapers, similar to what 'TheSun' is in UK. "The blood runs down the pages when you open them". (Albeit people are reading it, though).
Edit: I do remember around 10 (?) years ago there was a promotion article about (or from?) the Swedish Railway SJ, which claimed that thousands of their customers had themselves inject with microchips for their train tickets.
