Everything is going according to plan
Going all digital is a prescription for prison and slavery. I don't even use QR codes. Cash still rules.
Thank you for this, Riley. These are the kind of posts that make my subscription worthwhile. Just the facts, no BS.
I love this substack for the content not found anywhere else.
Well....that and the sly humor: "Come and See". Indeed! I watched that horrific movie.
For those who haven't, it's on YT.
I see lots of very legitimate security issues with the use of biometrics even outside of government tyranny. To start with, our unique data will have to be stored somewhere, and everything stored electronically can be hacked. Now it's just passwords and credit-cards which can be replaced, you cannot replace your biometrics. Once hacked, you will be "owned" for life. The second one is physical safety - what prevents a bigger guy to threaten the victim to use the palm / finger, etc to pay for things? Right now if I do not carry cash / credit-card with me, I am pretty much safe, or have limited exposure, but using biometrics is like carrying all your assets with you and being a physical target. My little child used to trick me to pay for things by grabbing my finger and pressing to the phone to pay for things. If kids can figure that out, what prevents any criminal to do the same? It can cause a wave of violent crimes. Not to mention all the issues associated with carrying a phone - it can be lost, stolen, broken, battery ran out, storage is full, dropped to water, left at home etc.
"The digital ruble was successfully used to pay for a haircut in Yekaterinburg."
Was the client's name something like Elvira N.?
Great demonstration of “the nudge.” It’s voluntary, until it’s not. You can “opt in” right up until you realize that you can’t opt out. Exploring that which will “never happen.”
It's pretty obvious that every government in the world is in lockstep, transitioning from the global plantation into a techno super max prison, the question is how do we operate outside of it or at least on the peripheral.
A Tchaikovsky two-fer (twice in a week) - lucky us! - From his Liturgy of St. John Chrysostomy Op. 41, composed in 1878. I guessed - but confirmed by checking in with our friendly, very cultured, spooks at Wikipedia - actually quite good on all matters classical music; you want to refresh your memory on the orchestral forces in a Mahler Symphony? - They're your guys!
I'm sure the Chinese wil gladlyl supply the Kremlin with everything needed to erect the coming digital utopia.
Just a few words to the people who still think this is about easier ways to pay.
I was in Hong Kong almost 20 years ago. They had a card based system to pay for any kind of transportation already in place for years.
You buy a card with a chip on it for very few bucks , load money to it from machines standing around at train stations (cash, nowadays maybe Credit Cards, Idk). Then you put this card into your wallet and pass by entrance/exit. Super simple, super convenient:
So, 20 years ago they already had a perfect, user friendly, yet anonymous system in place. So, I ask you, 20 years later, why the heck do we need biometrics, CBDCs, and all of this when perfect systems already existed and were widely used and proven in other parts of the world? Just make some kind of payment card that can be loaded with money as the user sees fit and use this. This "Octopus"- card worked perfectly when safely burried in your wallet, you didn't even have to take it out.
I can see future muggings involving just body parts rather than wallets or phones.
BRICS has been exposed as a globalist plot going back decades. I thought the leader of Christian Russia would at least share the moral principles? Revelation 21:8 "But as for the detestable, as for murderers, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” I thought Putin was smarter than this, to go for short term globalist fame & face eternity in hell.
When my pension and my partners salary go into the bank all of it comes out except 100 yo-yos which we use for on line purchases. All other face to face transactions are in cash. I don't want the government or banks knowing my business, they can go to hell and probably will!
Once again, very telling. Very different from what we have here in the West...
Today in the highway oil station/restaurant/market I work in (which is 3 minutes away from the house I live in and the very nearby forest and I am respected for what I am and think by the director, a woman) we have been called for the childish "hop, hop, hop" which is a service reunion (the director never tell me that stupid name by the way and just call me for a reunion). The main subject was the "electronic safe". Since nobody understood what that meant, unless myself, the director tried to explained what she herself don't understand. Instead of printing your documents (salaries etc...) on papers which are costly in trees you are offered (two weeks delays) a personal safe ""in the sky"" for free and for 50 years where all your documents will be stored. It would have been laughable if it wasn't so sad. I gave a very brief explanation about data gathering by the leaders at the top of the social pyramid but, respectfully, I was told to explain that outside the famous "Hop, Hop,Hop". What the people understood was just less trees necessary for papers (French forest are actually being sold and cut by private companies, often Chinese)...I told them later that no, the data were not store ""in the sky"" but in very pollutant and energivore data centers...
This digital transformation is associated with an "ecologist" propaganda (we now have a costly composter)... I am somehow entitled to call it a swindle (which I do) since I only ride my recumbent in that mountainous area, I am a gardener in permaculture and a certified biodynamic adviser with two decades of experience.
In the madhouse, the most insane are running the show and the people are clueless or unable to protect themselves...
If I have time, I will translate that article...
Stay spiritually alive!!
"The passport application will, by and large, not be necessary to show when biometrics are submitted to the Unified Biometric System."
Especially if the phone App has QR codes. No wonder the Kremlin installed phone chargers on all new public transportation--it sort of gurantees you'll always know what the proles are up to. I guess, the next step will be biometric chips inserted subcutaneously. At which point the scoundrels can ditch the phone chargers and save some cash.
Doesn't the future look delightful under technocratic neofeudalism.😵💫
Thank you for closing your article with that very beautiful and deep «Prayer of Penitence for Russia»by Tchaikovsky. Most appropriate.
