When I began calculating the massive number of ways technology like this could be used in a negative fashion against the everyday citizen my stomach got nauseous.
There’s nothing on earth scarier than receiving your very own “world ID.” It’s hard to imagine anything more frightening than being a bonafide “citizen of the world,” where your money and very existence are left in the ghoulish hands of Big Tech and Big Government. The increasing integration of one’s real life identity with online identity creates a whole new worlds of possibility for abuse on the part of the usual suspects. The integration of currency and payments into this mix is still more dangerous. Say something the government doesn’t like? Get ready to have your digital wallet fined — or seized entirely. Indeed, this is the very infrastructure that serves as the precondition for the much maligned Chinese “social credit score system.” Yet, sadly, this is the existence the regime is pushing for. Get ready for your eyeballs to be scanned, your social media to be scoured, and your bank accounts to be scrutinized, Global Citizen.
My God, it’s everything we have been warned about and MORE!
And something about those damn orb’s reminds me of Phantasm!
