At this moment in western democracies, we are passing into a period of great unrest -social, political, and corporate where governments are enabling and exploiting the coronavirus pandemic to justify the suppression of civil rights. We became prone to think by merely reciting The Constitution, a Charter of Rights and Freedoms, or great acts of past patriotism that the future liberties are forever secure to us because we simply inherited the fine qualities of common descent and live in the same democratic territories.
This is not about whether one should take the COVID-19 vaccine to protect themselves from illness but rather the dangers of the health crisis becoming the vehicle where totalitarianism has invoked a state of emergency where vaccine passports are compulsory to quell a global and national threat. We are going over the cliff where governments target their doctrine, release paramilitary forces such a Big Tech’s oversight to control and remove opposing medical opinions and science on their social media platforms, and subvert the rule of law –all historical and identifiable steps recognized to crush representative forms of government.
Robust democracies have seen this unfold very rapidly and systematically where vaccine executive orders, corporate policy, and the swift erosion of privacy and freedom to assemble are all acceptable trade-offs in complying with the restrictions and mandates for the gratifications to travel, dine out, attend family events and entertainment as well as removing the fear of one’s employment being terminated, and escape personal shaming by friends, co-workers, and even family for not abiding.
President Joe Biden’s claim that the pandemic is a pandemic of the unvaccinated where selfish humans are a threat to those already vaccinated is a most potent force for evil. This mendacity to slander has now put a premium on the knavery to attack those unwilling to insert a medicine into their bodies. The hysterical exaggeration to assail with such divisiveness has exacerbating social divisions and created a much greater epidemic of indiscriminate assault of the character with calls to arrest them, lock them out of society, and even calling them murderers.
Those who ask questions are vilified, suppressed, and censored. Federal agencies, mainstream media and social media insist they alone represent science, and any other interpretation of data is labeled dangerous misinformation. Even if one disagrees, and the unvaccinated continue to be attacked in a historic, explicit, and untruthful fashion, the attack by the politician will do more harm to the public mind than the crime of one’s constitutional rights and freedoms to decline the injections.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s address to the United Nations used the pandemic as an excuse to contain the masses and accentuate the “Great Reset”, a formal initiative from the World Economic Forum, when he stated, “This pandemic has provided an opportunity for a reset. This is our chance to accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts, to reimagine economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality, and climate change.” The global elites orchestrating Covid-19 lockdowns and passports to usher in this ‘Great Reset’ should alarm you.
Preparations to control the populations were in motion when the Canadian Military was caught using the Pandemic to test propaganda techniques in what can only be described as a hatched blueprint for governments to suppress their unsuspected citizens. In response, the Canadian Forces acknowledged that tactical policies and doctrines are aimed at adversaries and have limited application domestically, however these schemes were discovered to be implemented on their own citizens to head off civil disobedience by Canadians during the pandemic and enhance command decisions in targeting those who criticize the government’s pandemic mandates.
If you are still skeptical that freedoms are not under threat, a Polish Canadian pastor, Artur Pawlowski recently landed in his home city of Calgary following a four-month tour of the US where customs officials were waiting for him. While on his knees, Pawlowski was cuffed on tarmac and his electronic devices were confiscated. Pawlowski had been traveling over the summer to spread his warning that Western governments increasingly resemble the communist regime in Poland that he fled as a young man. After being away for months, he was not even allowed to hug his wife and children before being taken away
On previous occasions, armed and uninvited officials entered Pawlowski’s church sanctuary during a worship service where he called them Nazis; and then a motorcade of police pulled him over in the middle of a busy highway to arrest him. One can argue whether the pastor should have been wearing a mask in public or holding services, but one does not imagine the ruthless and heavy-handed tactics normally witnessed in tyrannical nations and not in Canada unless there is a much bigger agenda to break this man and send a frightful message to any other dissidents contemplating to speak out against their government.
In another teetering democracy, the Australian Deputy Premier of New South Wales, John Barilard, spouted to the unvaccinated that if you choose not to be vaccinated, you will lose your freedoms. Police are now physically taking down their own citizens and arresting them if you happen to walk through the neighborhood while not wearing a mask or ascertaining if they have been vaccinated.
One must wonder what is really going on with this crackdown reminiscent of the Chinese Communist response in the early days of the pandemic when there have been only 1,300 COVID-related deaths in Australia from a population of nearly 26 million. Overall deaths in the first half of 2021 were 71,500, an increase of 4,200 on average over the past 5 years while this virus would be responsible for a mere 400 deaths in a six-month period. The answer was clear when Dr. Kerry Chant, a leading health official in New South Wales, stated emphatically that we will be looking at what contact tracing looks like in the New World Order.
All the restrictions, vaccines, and school and business closures now lead us to the most dangerous tool in the repertoire. Once accepted and in popular use, there is no more choice remaining to participate in society. Created on the similar platform as the Communist Chinese Party’s surveillance QR code, the vaccine passport and its future use is the linchpin to government approvals in this New World Order.
First, governments, places of education, and hospitals made the passport mandatory under a state of a health emergency to maintain one’s employment, achieve an education, and attend events. Large corporations and smaller businesses are not only following suit now with the passport path made clear, but they also became the front door fascist arbitrators in checking one’s vaccine papers to assimilate into the global technocracy.
Currently there are numerous passport programs attempting to meet a wide range of public and private organization’s requirements. The Vaccination Credential Initiative VCI, whose members include the Mayo Clinic, Microsoft, Apple, Wal-Mart, the states of New York and California, and more than 220 other organizations, are looking to verify COVID-19 and other health information with a common standardized smartphone app that could be used worldwide.
By incorporating the data in a smartphone app, people will always have their passport readily available when required by the authorities. Organizations such as the US Centers for Disease Control and the UN World Health Organization will determine the required digital health documents that must be contained in the app.
Governments and the VCI will advocate for greater security due to widespread counterfeit passports and cybersecurity concerns over hackers gaining access to personal information. Additionally, more than a billion people globally cannot prove their identity with no issued birth certificate or access to a smartphone.
The solution to these issues and ensuring authentic vaccine verification will be the use of iris-based biometric systems that allow people even in the most remote places on earth to be downloaded into the global database by using a portable scanner. The technology will be dubbed a gamechanger with its secure and accurate features, and the cost-efficient rollout.
The contactless iris-based technology records the unique patterns in the colored ring surrounding the pupil to authenticate identity; including infants whose patterns form within the first year of life. Industry experts will enroll a person in the one-time biometric database in a few seconds, while authentication requires only a second to complete. This technology will adhere to international standards and eliminate the need for photo ID.
Another great democracy, the United Kingdom, has moved quickly in utilizing a vaccine passport that processes biometric facial recognition data. The National Health Services admitted that private data collected can be accessed by UK law enforcement. The NHS has not publicly disclosed the contract with iProov, the private company apparently operating the app, and it unclear whether the NHS has completed a privacy risk assessment of the collected data; however, it is known that one of iProov’s customers is the US Department of Homeland Security. The crossover of data to the department known to track terrorist threats could very well expand operations to conduct surveillance on anti-passport dissidents.
A group of UK lawyers established to challenge technocracy suggested that we should all reflect on whether we are heading towards a world where people must use their faces just to walk into the supermarket or the pharmacy or the nightclub. A prominent doctor added that once this stuff is brought in. it’s difficult to get rid of with COVID being the opportunity to gain a foothold.
The extension of the app beyond the pretext of the pandemic is evident with the Chinese Communist Party’s surveillance QR code lingering and being maintained beyond the pandemic. The technologies in the passport will see the system ‘function creep’ its way into new purposes. China possesses over half the world’s 800 million close circuit cameras located along every street to constantly scan one’s movement, purchases, behavior, and who you are communicating with. This is all possible through Skynet, an interlinked system of facial recognition and surveillance to identify citizens in a national database. According to state media, Skynet is fast enough to scan the entire population in under a second with an accuracy rate of 99.8%.
History tends to repeat itself. In leading up to the Holocaust, there was a time like today with vaccine passports and mandates being required to enter a restaurant, attend school, or board a plane where the freedoms and businesses of the lives of millions of Jews were being destroyed as the Gestapo demanded papers from every German. Much of what is happening today throughout western democracies; particularly to the unvaccinated had taken place in 1938, including the popular support of the government’s actions whether it be Germany’s Third Reich or current governments implementing draconian vaccine mandates.
This is not about vaccines since both the vaccinated and unvaccinated can transmit COVID-19, but rather forcibly injecting people or become a sub-human dissident and wear the Jewish star on your clothing. Social media and the mainstream news have effectively become the neo-fascist public relations arm of the governments in putting forth their non-stop messaging and experts pinning the pandemic against the unvaccinated.
The vaccine passport has effectively created a list of who will be persecuted, who will lose their job, who will lose their education, who will lose their dignity, and who will be shut out and left behind. The Nazis also had a list of Jews and those who disagreed with the agenda. These people were enemies of the state, sent to concentration camps, and disappeared over night.
Today, there is a clear example and modeling in Xinjang, Northwest China, where the cultural elimination of the mostly Muslim Uighurs is taking place. The most intensive surveillance of this religious people includes providing DNA, undergoing digital and biometric scans, and they must always carry a smartphone with tracking apps or be arrested. Many Uighurs are blindfolded and transported in trains to re-education detention camps -reminiscent of a time when hated humans were crammed into trains on a one-way trip to Auschwitz.
One of the most shocking revelations coming out of Canada under the COVID-19 public health emergency is Martial Law-like measures being prepared as noted by the Order of the Lieutenant Governor Council 465/2021 dated September 13, 2021, that declares sweeping powers of the government in the Province of Saskatchewan. These powers under the Act will be enacted in other regional jurisdictions as we begin to witness hospitals collapse with the unvaccinated terminated and food and fuel shortages resulting in panic buying.
The draconian powers in Saskatchewan include assuming control of local authorities and acquire or utilize personal property necessary, control and prohibit travel -likely military checkpoints, the removal of persons, livestock, and personal property including entry without a warrant, procure and fix food and fuel prices, collect and disclose information to prevent or combat the effects of the emergency, and conscript persons where required. These actions can no longer be considered a conspiracy theory.
Will the future of democracies slide into a system of values where a quasi-democratic neo-fascist and hybrid communist alliance of mutual interest wins the world over in its quest for political supremacy where freedom has been consumed by social conditioning?
We may do well to look back at the soldier who had the power to lose his own life for the life of a larger cause, and decide if we, an intruder or mere outsider, also possess the spirit of courage that holds personal suffering of no account and have the foresight and conscience to reverse this great wrong which has sapped the foundation of self-government by the people and for the people.
