Neil Oliver points out that in Britain, the powers that be are doing a bait-and-switch with their proposed Digital ID expansion. I haven't been able to find a transcript of his talk (which can normally be found at GBNews), but his message is so important that I've embedded the video, even without the transcript. I highly recommend that you take eleven minutes out of your day to watch it.
Here's a key passage, speaking about the "bait" of the prospect of electric vehicles replacing all our fossil-fuel-powered vehicles.
"Most of us won't have any sort of car at all. Unless the demand for cars - any sort of cars - drops drastically, there's no way to hit the emissions targets our governments have loudly committed us to. That's where the "15-minute cities" come in. We'll be expected to walk or cycle. Do you see the scam yet? They advertise a world of electric cars, but what we'll end up buying is lives lived on foot, within 15 minutes of our homes."
That's about the size of it, in America as much as in Britain. Back in pre-Industrial-Revolution times, most people were born, grew up, lived, worked, grew old and died within twenty miles of their birthplace - often less than that. That's because travel was too difficult and too costly; animal-powered, without roads worthy of the name, and very time-consuming. Only the wealthy, or those making a living by moving goods and services from one place to another, could afford such travel. In so many words, the "Green Revolution" is angling to push us all back into precisely that sort of lifestyle, where we simply can't travel much - whether we want to or not.
(What that means for folks who live out in the country, or in small towns, is left to the imagination. In reality, the success of the 15-minute city project means that people like that will be forced to move to cities where they don't want to live, to "enjoy" a lifestyle that is anathema to them. So much for personal freedom!)
Digital ID is yet another scam, a control freak's wet dream. At present it's said to be "opt-in only": if we don't want it, we won't be forced into it. However, we all know that's nothing more than a sop to public opinion. If the only way to access your state pension, or buy a ticket on a bus or train or aircraft, or purchase what you need, is to use your digital ID, then you have no option at all. Worse, if we all carry ID that can be electronically scanned at any place, at any time, we will have no privacy left whatsoever.
If a crime is committed, anyone within a given distance of it will be traced, and can be interrogated at need. We won't be able to buy or sell anything without it, because transactions will become cashless, built around the use of a digital ID to identify the purchaser (and, in the case of a private transaction, the seller). Just think of the drools of eagerness of those wanting to ban private firearms sales. They could identify both buyer and seller with trivial ease, just by looking back through our movements, keyed to our digital ID, and our financial transactions, keyed in the same way. The same goes for anything and everything else.
Our privacy is already in rags and tatters. Compulsory, enforced digital ID will destroy it completely.
yet another "Mark of the Beast"
Our safety is those ass hats do not realize just how vast the US really is.
On the other hand walking is good for us.
No better time to become ungovernable.
No travel, no overthrow of the government.
And yet they harp on voter ID...
You all be safe and God bless.
If you don't obey bad laws, like gun registration in Connecticut in 2014, you won't be subject to bad laws.
"Just think of the drools of eagerness of those wanting to ban private firearms sales."
This is where gold, silver, and barter will come into play. "Digital cash" is all about taxing EVERY.SINGLE.PURCHASE you make, whether it be at the supermarket or at a yard sale. Squeezing more blood from the stone is the object of the game. What TPTB don't realize is that they're setting up the perfect atmosphere for an underground economy. So go ahead, WEF, fire away! By the time you're done, you won't know who has what, and you'll be more vulnerable than ever.
The "15-minute cities;" this is all about "You'll own nothing and be happy." You'll live in a beehive apartment. You'll exist for the benefit of the likes of Soros, Schwab, and Gates; cows to be milked; LIVESTOCK. Anyone who thinks this is a good idea, no one owning anything, realize this; SOMEONE WILL own everything. It just won't be YOU. We fought a war back in the 1700's to get away from this type of society... I'm willing to fight it again...
for the 'Scannable ID':
Their plan is to return to feudalism, neo-feudalism... Scary.
Monkey, meet wrench.
"the "Green Revolution" is angling to push us all back into precisely that sort of lifestyle, where we simply can't travel much."
As ever demonstrated, What is progressive for Progs is regressive for the rest of us.
Down is up, wrong is right, abnormal is normal, and off with you to camp when you attempt to debate.
RSR said it, they are trying to push us back to a neo-feudalism society where there are 2 classes of people, the dirt and cloud people...and guess who can travel...and who will be eating bugs...
Actually, those 15 minute cities are not meant for you but your replacements. You will be grist for the mill and then fed to the crickets. No joke!
You aren’t going to get major supermarkets every 15-30 minute’s walking distance….
Like them or dislike them, it is the major retail stores and specialised outlets that give you significant choice.
Without the ability to travel, you will find yourself doing the vast majority of your shopping at the equivalent of your old General Store.
You will get bread, but there will only one type, etc. You will find yourself living more on canned goods and less on fresh-food. Not only because fresh food needs replacing more often, but the electrical cost of running your big refrigerator and extra freezer….
Maybe we need to start pushing back more…
We've got to be grateful for what we have before we understand that it isn't simply maybe we need to push back more.
Gratitude: an emotion that rarely arises except after what has been lost is recalled nostalgically.
They aren't really thinking the whole issue through, but that's not surprising - as city dwellers themselves, they don't understand, and don't realize they NEED to understand, rural America.
They don't realize that their electricity, food, fuel, and everything in the stores comes from a distance - our economy isn't setup for local support the way it used to be.
And if they try, the cities will be the first to fall since its impossible to get enough food, let alone everything else, to the cities with that scheme. it will also be impossible to move everybody out of the cities with that scheme, like it has been shown to be impossible to evacuate everybody from cities threatened by storms.
If they hadn't encouraged the downfall of the railroads over the last 50 years, it MIGHT be possible, but now it isn't. I wouldn't be surprised if they are assuming that the US is like Europe with more (but not enough) railroads than the US...
I hear you, brother.
Part of the “long march through the institutions” has been the removal of proper history and civics from the educational system.
People are no longer taught how long it took to get us to our relatively comfortable and free societies, and how many people had to sweat and bleed to make it so. Not knowing these things is part of the reason so many imagine that Utopia can be just around the corner if they pull down the walls keeping the barbarians at bay.
1. There ARE bad people out there. (Not just “misunderstood”)
2. They WILL kill you.
3. You’d BETTER be ready.
Soylent Green is made of people!
