“The limits on implants are going to be set by ethical arguments rather than scientific capacity. For example, should you implant a tracking chip in your child? There are solid, rational reasons for it, like safety.” — World Economic Forum article
The insidious World Economic Forum (WEF) of the “Great Reset” is not stopping at partnering with governments to roll out a digital ID required to do or buy anything, to achieve a world where, as WEF put it, you’ll “own nothing” and “have no privacy.” A WEF article also recently praised the idea of microchipping children, and WEF further praised the incorrectly named Inflation Reduction Act in the US on the grounds that it would help fight “climate change.” Because “experts” haven’t been repeatedly wrong about climate change for the last few decades. . .
Ironically, WEF put a note at the top of the microchip piece whining, “This article has been intentionally misrepresented on sites that spread false information. Please read the piece for yourself before sharing or commenting.”
Well, I read the piece for myself, and I can assure you that it is not “disinformation” that WEF published an article supporting digital implants in kids. The article explicitly suggests implants for children (see the above quote), and WEF posted the article without any note (as far as I can see) saying this was pure opinion on the author’s part, so there’s an obvious conclusion to draw. And considering WEF’s history of supporting digitally-enforced totalitarianism, pretending WEF’s supportive attitude about microchips was misrepresented is ridiculous.
“[WEF, Aug. 16] Superheroes have been dominating big and small screens for a while, but there’s a subtle change happening. Many children expect to develop superpowers themselves.
These expectations may sound unattainable, but we’re already making the first strides towards an ‘augmented society’. . .Night goggles, exoskeletons and brain-computer interfaces build up the picture. The augmenting technology will help in all stages of life: children in a learning environment, professionals at work and ambitious senior citizens.”
While the article does at first say augmentation for kids could be taken off, it immediately afterwards said, “Technology will become more intertwined with the body in the form of implants, but it will also seamlessly integrate with the environment – you might have sensors in a chair, for example.” But it gets more explicit than that. The article continued (emphasis added):
“As scary as chip implants may sound, they form part of a natural evolution that wearables once underwent. . .Getting an implant is obviously more invasive than picking up a pair of glasses. Generally, implants will be linked to medical conditions. . .Brain implants take us one step further and allow us to tap straight into the body’s ‘operating system’. . .
While it is true that companies like Neuralink have been targeting the brain from the get-go, brain implants may not be the first choice in our augmented society.”
Elon Musk is the founder of Neuralink. Remember that the next time a conservative media figure or outlet pretends that Musk is trying to make humanity freer from authoritarian control (remember also how beholden Musk is to the tyrannical Chinese Communist Party).
“An indispensable wearable device may be implanted under the skin as a first approach or in the belly if needed. . .some therapies will only be effective in the brain, but would you walk around with a chip in your head?. . .The question is whether implants will follow a similar evolution. Health? Plausible. Education and profession? Potentially.
We may wish to give dyslectic children new opportunities through implants that translate in real-time [emphasis added].”
And there it is. WEF published an article advocating for digital implants in children.
“On the other hand, dyslexia is a personal trait. Do we want to change that? As a society, we need to make a choice: do we want to accept human limitations associated with learning or ageing? [What happened to individual choice?] The final application realms, gaming and even intelligence augmentation, may seem farfetched, but only the future can tell.
If the idea of a chip in your body makes you cringe, consider all the pharmaceuticals you take without question.”
Damn right, WEF. We take way too many pharmaceuticals without question, including many that are terribly damaging to us. I think Covid-19 uncovered that whole corrupt mess. We should reject many of the pharmaceuticals offered us (including medication for such over-diagnosed conditions as ADHD), or at least do our own research first, as well as rejecting brain chips. One type of pills we don’t want are the ones that send digital impulses, as the WEF article described. Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla previously described a pill with a chip in it at a WEF conference and enthused, “Imagine. . .the compliance.”
Remember that WEF in 2016 fantasized about their plan for 2030, “Once in a while I get annoyed about the fact that I have no real privacy. Nowhere I can go and not be registered. I know that, somewhere, everything I do, think and dream of is recorded. I just hope that nobody will use it against me.” WEF is partnering with the Dutch and Canadian governments to roll out an authoritarian digital ID system.
And this same WEF that wants brain chips and no privacy is also, of course, pushing “climate” action as a way to achieve this Orwellian dystopia. We shouldn’t be surprised that WEF would praise the financially and economically irresponsible Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), which “President” Joe Biden signed into law, since WEF has a history of climate insanity. WEF previously claimed that anyone who objected to a diet of bugs was racist, worried that the tragic invasion of Ukraine was distracting from “climate change,” and launched a “green tracking tool” to ensure the lowering of citizens’ quality of life worldwide (including by the cutting of dairy and beef from people’s diets).
“[WEF, Aug. 22] The $369 billion earmarked [in the IRA] for clean energy and climate change mitigation initiatives is an unprecedented level of support from the US Federal Government for the transition to sustainable energy. . .The Act incentivizes multiple sources of clean energy. . .The Act extends and creates Investment Tax Credits (ITCs) and Production Tax Credits (PTCs) for clean energy generation. . .
It also removes the erstwhile uncertainty and unpredictability surrounding ITCs and PTCs for solar and wind respectively, by restoring them to their original value and extending them until 2033. . .The IRA also creates a $5.8 billion programme, running until September 2026, to invest in projects in industries that are either energy-intensive or produce hard-to-abate emissions [the US doesn’t have the money, of course, but who cares for trifles like that?]. . .
It provides $1.5 billion to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to support monitoring and methane reduction efforts in upstream oil and gas activities and imposes a penalty on methane emissions in excess of 25,000 metric tons of CO2e gas.”
Don’t be fooled for one moment that WEF actually cares about the environment. Many of the supposedly “green” solutions WEF is pushing, like wind turbines and solar panels, are actually worse for the environment. For instance, in Scotland, as of 2020, 14 million trees were cut down to make way for “green” wind turbines. That’s not a win for the environment. Furthermore, don’t expect WEF head Klaus Schwab and his cronies to give up their private jets and energy-guzzling mansions.
WEF, as usual, is simply on a quest to create a global, authoritarian dystopia.
