Vaccine Passports Pave Way for Digital ID and Globalist Control: Journalist

The COVID-19 pandemic appears to be waning across the world, with restrictions being lifted and life, more or less, returning to normal.

But journalist Nick Corbishley, who writes about economic and political trends in Europe and Latin America, is warning that the vaccine passports can lead to the implementation of a global digital ID that will threaten privacy and freedom across the world.

Corbishley discussed his new book, “Scanned: Why Vaccine Passports Will Mean the End of Privacy and Personal Freedom,” in an April 1 interview for EpochTV’s “Crossroads” program.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, many people living in Europe and the United States have been conditioned to accept a kind of constant control and surveillance, Corbishley said.

“It’s like this checkpoint society. Wherever you want to go, you have to show your mobile phone, your identity … even if it’s just to go into a supermarket or go into a shop,” he said.

Many people in poor countries don’t have official identification, Corbishley said, so one way of preparing for digital IDs is to introduce immunity certificates.

“It was something that was talked about long before the COVID pandemic,” he explained, adding that companies and corporations participating in the World Economic Forum have been looking for ways to introduce digital identity since at least 2016.

In 2019—months before the COVID-19 pandemic began—the ID2020 Alliance said that immunity certificates could be used as a gateway to establish digital identity, Corbishley pointed out.

ID2020 is an American nongovernmental organization based in New York with a mission to guide the development of global digital ID, according to its website. The ID2020 Alliance is a partnership between the ID2020 and other organizations working to reach that goal.

“ID2020 Alliance partners envision a world in which all people can collect verifiable digital credentials—immunization records, vocational training certificates, proof of residency—and selectively share these records to apply for jobs, access financial services, participate as citizens and voters, and more,” the organization said in a written overview of its purpose (pdf).

The organization is funded “by contributions from philanthropies, private sector partners, and individuals,” the website states. Microsoft Corporation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Open Society Foundations—founded and chaired by George Soros—are some of ID2020‘s contributors (pdf).

WHO Plot for Globalist Control, and Vaccine Passport End-Game: Nick Corbishley

A proposal at the World Health Organization (WHO) would give it the power to manage a future health crisis or pandemic, globally, including with powers to sanction. According to Nick Corbishley, author of “Scanned: Why Vaccine Passports and Digital IDs Will Mean the End of Privacy and Personal Freedom,” under this policy the WHO will be able to dictate responses to pandemics in different countries, and sanction countries that refuse to comply.

In addition, Corbishley notes that private finances behind the WHO could steer some of the policies, with organizations including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation being among them.

He warns that if the WHO gains these powers, it could easily lead to forced social monitoring systems on-par with the Chinese regime’s social credit system, using the vaccine passports as the vehicle.
