In October, the World Economic Forum (WEF) recently released its white paper for its Known Traveller Digital Identity (KTDI) initiative that promotes the development of digitized, paperless credentials for travel.
In September, an article titled “Why getting rid of paper passports might be good for business” is pretty much an ad for the idea. Like every system, it has its advantages and disadvantages and the white paper goes through them in a highly generalized manner. Whilst going digital and paperless may make some parts of the process quicker, one has to wonder how much easier it is to be tracked going just about anywhere.
According to the article, which quotes Karoli Hindriks, CEO of Jobbatical, an Estonian immigration and relocation tech company, one of the reasons or excuses for going paperless is to make travelling for work easier.
Instead of promoting mobility across nations, Hindriks suggests, the passport has become an instrument of exclusion. She notes that the countries with the greatest number of highly educated emigrants—India, China, and the Philippines—have some of the most travel-restrictive passports.
I am not sure I see the logic in that. Whether the passports are paper or paperless, travel restrictions are matters of policy. If a given country doesn’t let you out or let you in, then what does it matter whether the passport is paperless or not?
The argument gives away another clue. Why should people have to travel to another country for work? Helping people is supposed to start with helping them in their circumstances, and that includes helping them by having enough work and resources at the place in which they live. It may not be always possible but that is a sensible starting point. One has to wonder whether facilitating travelling for work with such an initiative is truly about helping people or more about moving people around like commodities; in other words, the Great Reset is about population control under the guise of “sustainability”.
Even if travelling to work is a necessity, immigration policy and policy of employers matters much more than whether your passport is paperless.
The article goes on…
Countries like Australia and Singapore have already adopted smartphone-based e-passports to a certain degree. The confusion over Covid-19 vaccine passports leads some experts to believe that more countries will be ready to adopt digital credentials. But why haven’t we been able to totally ditch the century-old paper booklets yet?
Nationalism and nostalgia are barriers, Hindriks says. “There’s always an uproar any time you touch national symbols like currency or passports,” she explains.
The above is more revealing. As usual, “nationalism” is automatically a bad thing so the breakdown of any sense of “nationalism” is automatically a good thing, which is part of the NWO under a one-world government.
And of course, with the “confusion over Covid-19 vaccine passports”, we have to have something better. Right, the timing of the plandemic is a mere coincidence. Oh, by the way, the European Commission recommended vaccine passports in 2018.
