The latest modern-tech idea leading towards totalitarian social control “proposes that an app would record people’s GPS location data as they move about their daily lives …….. The academics note that similar smartphone software has already been deployed in China. It was also voluntary there, but users were allowed to go into public spaces or on public transport only if they had installed it.”
“In May of 2016, at the United Nations Headquarters in NY, ID2020, an alliance of governments, non-profits, academia, over 150 private sector companies and 11 United Nations agencies collaborated on how to provide a unique digital identity to everyone on the planet”.
“If the Alliance’s goal is a globally recognized digital identity for everyone from birth to death, will that become a global mandate? How will it be enforced and by whom? What happens to those individuals who are unwilling to participate? Will they be persecuted? And how will the implementation of identification evolve with technology beyond smartphones? Will wearables, implant’s like those being used in Swedish subways or some form of digital tattoo become the norm?
As more and more transactions become digital in nature and are built around a single global identification standard, supported by Microsoft, the question of who will govern this evolving global community and economy becomes relevant. Especially since nonparticipants in this system would be unable to buy or sell goods or services”.
Food is quickly disappearing from the supermarket shelves and being replaced with great difficulty (if at all).
The country can’t feed itself because most food is imported from foreign lands.
But coronavirus is locking down countries and preventing international trade, imports and exports.
The back-to-the-land, family farm, grow-your-own, small-is-beautiful, ethic of Catholic social doctrine is proven time and time again in times of crisis to be uncommon common sense in a nonsensical world.
Spring is coming. Get planting. Keep chickens and other small livestock if you can.
Fields, back-garden, front-lawn, window boxes, raised-beds, community wasteland. It doesn’t matter. Get planting and grow your own.
If not with coronavirus, starvation will inevitably come with a vengeance during some other crisis.
Get planting and flee to the fields.
