Many questions have arisen since the World Health Organization declared a worldwide public health emergency on January 30, 2020. Where did COVID-19 originate? How long will it take to “flatten the curve?” Are ubiquitous lockdowns necessary or effective for an ailment that has a 99% recovery rate? And perhaps most perplexingly, why did the World Economic Forum host Event 201 in October 2019–a simulated pandemic exercise that eerily followed the real coronavirus narrative, complete with stuffed souvenir microbes?
So far, none of these questions have been sufficiently answered. Yet as the narrative goes on, the picture of the “new normal” we’ve been ushered into gradually becomes clearer.
Klaus Schwab, Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, sees coronavirus as the catalyst for the “Great Reset” and the “fourth industrial revolution.” According to him, “The pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world.” He seems excited, but what will that “reset” mean for us?
Schwab proposes to “build back better” using technologies such as artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, 3D printing, and nanotechnology–which are supposed to be more “sustainable” than current technologies. The World Economic Forum has also toyed with the idea of universal basic income to fix economic issues caused by the coronavirus lockdowns.
Soon after Event 201 seemed to go live, skeptics of the official narrative speculated about a possible link between the pandemic and 5G technology, which was deemed “essential” and continued to be installed during the lockdowns. Official news sources claimed that the virus originated in Wuhan, China–where, of all places, 5G was among the first to launch in November 2019.
Like mRNA vaccines, health effects of radiation in the 5G range haven’t been tested, and many citizens have been protesting its installation. However, thousands of peer reviewed studies have confirmed deleterious effects of existing wireless frequencies, ranging from tinnitus in some people to life-threatening arrhythmias in others, so there is reason to believe that 5G can cause similar problems. Indeed, the symptoms of microwave sickness vary as widely as symptoms of COVID-19.
Despite mainstream news sources systematically ridiculing anyone who says “coronavirus” and “5G” in the same sentence, there is no disputing the fact that 5G forms the infrastructure of the fourth industrial revolution–namely AI and the IoT. With the rollout of vaccine passports, yet another one of 5G’s raisons d’etre becomes apparent; every passport holder is assigned a blockchain code that broadcasts his or her mRNA injection status. These codes could be easily expanded to contain other personal information as well, such as one’s social security number, banking information, and current location. A biometric digital ID–like ID2020, for instance–would essentially connect everyone to the IoT.
If all of this sounds a bit far-fetched, scan your vaccine passport and take a trip to China. Virtually every item there is marked with a blockchain code, which allows for cashless payments by scanning the code with a cell phone–or, disturbingly, by scanning your face, which is stored in a vast AI database and recognized by every camera you pass by in the street and in commercial buildings.
Once you’re assigned a digital ID, your data is collected at all times–where you go, what you buy, whether you’ve been “bad” or “good”–and this data can be used for a variety of purposes, from selling your information to advertisers, to informing law enforcement of your daily routine, to assigning you a social credit score.
So, there you have it–a method of surveillance that surpasses Orwell’s wildest nightmares. The vaccine passport is your ticket to a brave new technocracy.
