Life is beginning to open up to some degree around the world. This is good news and a hope that fewer people will contract the Coronavirus and more lives will be spared. In some areas, there are spikes and as people become less careful, we may see more. Why write this article then…if, indeed, there is light at the end of the tunnel? Well, not so fast! We need to think about what may come next…not another Pandemic, hopefully, but what else might be in the future for us.
First, let me say that Boyer Writes is a Christian blog for inspiration and encouragement. However, in the last few months, I have researched various articles online that have made me sit up and take notice! This has led me to believe that from time to time, this blog should also become INFORMATIVE. Once readers have some material to digest, he or she can make their own decisions on whether to be concerned or not. Frankly, I am.
What then is the “INVISIBLE TATTOO” title for this writing all about?
As the world races to find a cure or vaccine for the World Pandemic of the Coronavirus, it seems that we, around the world, should not be blind-sided by researches and proposals which are in the works…even if the final product of the research should be years away.
Read the article that I am going to share with you carefully. It could be our future…yours and mine. If not ours, our children’s and grandchildren’s. Just as the world, in 2020, was subject to a lock down of businesses, schools and universities closed, “shelter in place” and “social distancing” became realities, most people could not believe it was happening. Yet, it definitely was! The cry now, as the gradual opening has begun, is “Just get us BACK TO NORMAL before more businesses and lives are totally ruined!”
The article you are about to read reflects this cry. It may be the very HOPE of all mankind that will be used to propagate what the powerful within world organizations, like the U.N., Heads of countries around the world and local officials within the community use to control our lives literally. It may be at that point that a live or die choice may have to be made. I can hear the reader now…”Oh, that is putting it a little strong!!” I certainly pray it is.
How could this proposal of using a vaccine tattoo, as an immunity passport actually work?
Appealing to what may seem the “reasonable” thing to do…for the “Good of all” could be what the next billboards could advertise, TV updates promote, Facebook and other social medias could also declare. Just as it does now on how many have been tested for the virus…with almost hourly updates.
It could simply start at first with an app for your phone that you MUST show. If you are one of the elderly or disabled that don’t use apps or even use a cell phone, there would be another way that could be thought of. You can be assured, it is being thought of. This appeal to doing the “common sense” thing in order to lure the masses into believing what all should do is not a new tactic. Remember World War II? I think we call it “propaganda.”
“Propaganda is the spreading of information in support of a cause. It’s not so important whether the information is true or false or if the cause is JUST or NOT.” (Dicitionary.com)
Again, I repeat, this blog is being written that none of us should be “technologically blindsided” when things eventually come our way. After you read this article, I will leave it up to you to decide if you think this proposal of creating a digital identification through the use of a tattoo is a JUST cause.
The following information, in part, is from an Australian post, Tott News, Australia’s Front Line, May 14, 2020 Ethan Nash, Communications and multimedia specialist.
(A link for this entire article will be at the end of this blog post)
ARE IMMUNITY PASSPORTS AND VACCINE TATTOOS COMING?
“Researchers have created a ‘dissolvable ink’ that can be embedded in the skin via microneedle vaccination, creating a barcode ‘tattoo’ only visible when using a smartphone application.
As society enters a new ‘COVIDSafe’ framework in anticipation for a vaccine, how will these tracking discoveries be incorporated with pushes for ‘immunity passports’ and digital ID? Could the introduction of tracing applications and the ID2020 immunisation program all just be pieces of a larger system to come? Etan Nash explores.
The way vaccinations are received and monitored may be about to radically change in the near future, with new discoveries allowing for the potential to expand traditional models.
A recent December 2019 study published in Science Translational Medicine describes the development of ‘quantum dot tags’ that fluoresce with information as part of a vaccine injection.
Kevin McHugh, an Assistant Professor of Bioengineering at Rice University, and bioengineers Robert Langer and Ana Jaklenec from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology,conducted the research:
“McHugh et al. developed dissolvable microneedles that deliver patterns of near-infrared light-emitting microparticles to the skin. Particle patterns are invisible to the eye but can be imaged using modified smartphones.
By codelivering a vaccine, the pattern of particles in the skin could serve as an on-person vaccination record.”
Different to traditional injection methods, researchers have tested on rats biometric ‘tags’ that can be incorporated via sugar-based microneedles on a patch.
Here is where things get interesting. An article published by Rice University on the findings reveals that, you guessed it, Bill Gates has played a part in the development of this research.
McHugh, who was recruited to join Rice with funding from the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (committee includes former Gates advisors), described the following events:
“The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation came to us and said, ‘Hey, we have a real problem — knowing who’s vaccinated’.
They said, ‘We go on vaccination campaigns where people get into Hummers, drive to a rural village, set up a tent and start immunizing people, but they don’t always know who’s been immunized before and what vaccines are still needed.”
McHugh says funding from the foundation and institute allowed the team’s research on ‘quantum-dot’ tattoos to come to life — which is primarily targeted at children. He continues:
“The square-centimeter patches hold up to 16 tiny needles. They don’t go very deep, which makes them theoretically painless and a lot easier for kids.
They’re like putting on a bandage.”
The paper also suggests the technology could be useful “in the developing world” for “intradermal on-person vaccination recordkeeping”.
This is important to note when you consider current campaigns being undertaken in third-world countries by the Gates family and other private organisations. The central themes? Vaccination uptake and digital identification databases.
Could there be a link between ‘quantum dot’ research and ongoing ‘philanthropist’ programs?
The ongoing push for digital identification is not a new occurrence, however, the concept has become increasingly prevalent in many societies in recent years.
The United Nations Agenda 2030 states as part of Sustainable Development Goal — a target to “provide legal identity to all, including birth registration, by 2030”.
In recent years, a new project called ID2020 has emerged, consisting of a public-private coalition which advocates for digital identification for a billion undocumented people worldwide.
The ‘ID2020 Summit’ was held at the United Nations headquarters in New York in June 2017. Microsoft and Accenture attended, as well as ‘humanitarian’ groups including the World Food Programme and the UN Refugee Agency. (Accenture is an Irish consulting company whose current clients include 91 of the Fortune Global 100 and more than three-quarters of the Fortune Global 500.)
The meeting discussed creating digital identification for every person on the planet. One that is tied to fingerprints, birth certificates, medical records, education, travel, bank accounts and more.
Working with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the ID2020 group soon drafted a formal articulation of their perspective on ‘ethical approaches’ to digital identity.
The stage was set, but just how will this team achieve such an objective and deliver on the Agenda 2030 plan?…
Bill Gates, a man who has been at the forefront of a push for mass vaccination of the planet, has also floated the idea of ‘digital certificates’ that could be used to prove COVID-19 vaccination status:
“What we’ll have to have is certificates of who’s a recovered person – who’s a vaccinated person, because you don’t want people moving around the world where you’ll have some countries that won’t have it under control.”
…In Australia, the mainstream media is now beginning to push this agenda through online polls and television programs, with many predicting a firmer push to come along in the months ahead: ‘…the Chili, UK, US and Germany are also considering the idea to get the healthy back to work…’ …
The new, all-encompassing digital identity will also link to emerging smart city infrasturcture and all programs will be linked to Australia’s 5G network and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Once merged into a complete digital version of a person, annual COVID-19 vaccines will become a requirement and compliance will be stored on the application. Is your smartphone and vaccine barcode up-to-date, citizen?
Is this the future you want for your children and grandchildren? Will Australians wake up to this ongoing Agenda 2030 plan in time?” …
ALL PEOPLE should ask the same question. We, here at Boyer Writes ask how this proposal, should it come to pass, would have ethical or religious concerns…not to speak of the encroachment into one’s privacy and independent thinking. The average person does not know what is taking place in governments, the U.N. and other places, which can be most disturbing. The digital, embedded identification will most likely be sold to the public with these words:
- “It is for the good of everyone.”
- “Your easy-to-read digital identification of good health will get you back to work and help your employer to keep you safe.” (This sale may not tell people that it will keep those WITHOUT the digital ID…out of the business workplace…customers or employees. Would that include places like grocery stores?)
- ” You are helping societies to rebuild.” (All of these makes one believe that you would be a good citizen to comply…or bad citizen to refuse.)
It is not only confusing, but disturbing because you realize you are handing over to authorities complete control of your life. However, we have Holy Scripture to lean upon and we must ask for God’s guidance with our future.
For God is not a God of confusion but of peace… 1st Corinthians 14:33a
You may have read the book, The Cost of Discipleship, written by Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Bonhoeffer was an Christian pastor and theologian, a dissident, who made his decision to take a stand over Nazi control… even though other clergy were going along with the governmental sentiment at the time. He was arrested and died in the Flossenburg Concentration Camp in Germany in 1945.
How does this illustration apply to this post? If you think hard enough about liberty, personal belief, and consequences…you are sure to get the picture of what could lay ahead in years to come unless God should intervene or mankind stands up for freedom of choice. Even in this Pandemic, people who chose to open early their own businesses, while abiding by precautions, were arrested, fined, or lost their business license. Some State Governors took on the role of a “complete authority.” The last thing this writer wants to be is pessimistic about the future, but we should all be wise and, as mentioned, INFORMED.
