The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced a $1.27 billion initiative to fund the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, which includes $200 million for digital IDs and “civil registry databases.”
Following the UN’s General Assembly week in late September, the Gates Foundation in a press release stated that $200 million would be going towards expanding “Digital Public Infrastructure.”
“This funding will help expand infrastructure that low-and middle-income countries can use to become more resilient to crises such as food shortages, public health threats, and climate change, as well as to aid in pandemic and economic recovery. This infrastructure encompasses tools such as interoperable payment systems, digital ID, data-sharing systems, and civil registry databases.”
After the announcement, Michael Rectenwald, author of “Google Archipelago: The Digital Gulag and the Simulation of Freedom,” warned that the digital ID system is a sinister tool that threatens civil liberties worldwide.
“Of all the other means of identifying and tracking subjects, digital identity poses perhaps the gravest technological threat to individual liberty yet conceived,” he told The Defender. “It has the potential to trace, track and surveil subjects and to compile a complete record of all activity, from cradle to grave.”
“Digital identity will serve as a means of coercion and enforced compliance with the outrageous demands of a vaccine regime that will have no end,” he added.
“It is no wonder that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is funding this invasive, rights-abrogating technology, given Gates’ investments, both financially and ideologically, in coercive neo-Malthusian and arguably eugenics-friendly methods.”
