VAN NATTA: Vaccine Passports and the Age of Digital Totalitarianism


Saturday, January 15, 2022

Multinational tech conglomerates are working in lockstep with the federal government to develop vaccine passports. These passports advance the World Economic Forum’s “Great Reset” and will ultimately lead to the creation of a global digital social credit system.

The Great Reset, which has been dismissed as a “conspiracy theory” by outlets like the New York Times, is entirely real. The World Economic Forum (WEF) openly states on their website that the pandemic has “highlighted the advantages of creating a digital economy.” 

Digital ID is central to the Great Reset and the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). An electronic ID will be tied to virtually every aspect of your life, dictating your level of access to the system at large. The founder of the WEF, Klaus Schwab, invented the concept of the 4IR, or the merging of “the physical, digital and biological worlds.”

The WEF is also involved in the development of the digital ID CommonPass and aims to use it to coerce vaccination. They want the CommonPass to be a “model” for governments around the world

Tech companies including WEF partners Microsoft and Oracle, along with the military think-tank MITRE, have collaborated with health companies to create the Vaccination Credential Initiative (VCI) which enables individuals to immediately access their vaccine records. 

MITRE in particular plays an integral part in the push for digital ID. They are a “military-intelligence think tank” that aided the FBI in creating the Next Generation Identification systemostensibly the largest biometric information database in the world. States including California, New York, and Louisiana have already deployed SMART Health Cards produced in similar fashions.

Oracle, on the other hand, is involved in a “pharmacovigilance surveillance system.”

The director of Operation Warp Speed, Moncef Slaoui, told the Wall Street Journal that “Operation Warp Speed has selected the medical-distribution company McKesson and cloud operators Google and Oracle to collect and track vaccine data.”

This is all being put into practice in states where the government is already particularly overreaching.

New York City implemented their “Key to NYC” vaccine passport program in August. The tech company IBM, who is notably a WEF partner, is responsible for creating the app for the program. Similarly, Illinois implemented the online COVID vaccine verification portalVax Verify” for residents over 18-years-old. 

America is not immune to medical tyranny. The seeds of digital totalitarianism are being planted in the United States and are accelerating the World Economic Forum’s plan for a “Great Reset” of humanity.

If Americans accept vaccine passports, then we are tacitly admitting that governments and corporations own our bodies. The age of digital and medical totalitarianism is already upon us, and citizens must resist now before liberty is rendered obsolete.
