Microsoft Alliance ID2020 Universal Digital Identity and You

Last year, Microsoft joined the ID2020, a global alliance whose goal is to create universal digital identities for everyone. What are the social, economic, and ethical implications of such an initiative? Our digital activities are more and more consistent with our real activities. Participation in the modern economy, the ability to buy and sell, get jobs, medical care, social services and much more is almost impossible without a digital identity.

In May 2016, at the United Nations headquarters in New York, ID2020, an alliance of governments, nonprofits, academia, more than 150 private sector companies and 11 United Nations agencies collaborated on how to ensure a unique digital identity for everyone on the planet. Most of the scope of the ID2020 alliance is focused on its noble goal of providing digital identification to more than one billion refugees, women, children and others without any form of identification.

The idea of ​​providing digital identification of this “invisible” part of the world’s population to ensure their participation in society puts a human face on a true mission. It also creates a unifying point, which this Open Alliance hopes that other organizations, such as Microsoft, will accept and become part of this global effort. The fundamental mission of creating a universal identification system that includes every person on the globe, using modern technology and the support of various governments, financial institutions and much more, is the goal hidden behind the humanitarian cause.

Alliance ID2020 and its goal until 2030

According to the alliance’s guidance, “By 2030, it seeks to contribute to the expansion of a secure, verifiable and sustainable digital identification system in line with the Sustainable Development Goals” agreed by the United Nations. “This is a short-term focus on achieving this goal – developing and testing the best technology solutions for digital identification; and working with governments and other entities to implement them. The emphasis on 1.5 billion undocumented people is part of this short-term vision.

The long-term outlook is built around Case for Action alliances, which argue that convergence of trends provides an unprecedented opportunity for coordinated, coordinated progress towards the goal of universal digital identity. These trends include political consensus among United Nations members, the expansion of global ties, the advent of new technologies, and global calls for a new identity model.

– Political unity: in 2015, all countries of the United Nations committed themselves to a global commitment to ensure legal identity for all by 2030.
– Global connectivity: the proliferation of smart devices allows the use of new registration methods and ensures consistent interaction with credentials.
– New technologies: blockchain technology, for example, used with bitcoin, and in which Microsoft has invested in the creation of a decentralized id (DID), makes secure and verifiable technology available to the masses.
– New identification model: consumers want a seamless and secure digital experience.

Microsoft, in a recent announcement regarding the use of blockchain technology for decentralized identification, further stated its support for this initiative, saying: “Each of us needs the digital identity that we own, which securely and confidentially stores all the elements of our digital identity.”

Microsoft, blockchain and universal identifiers

In a statement confirming its position as a founding member of the ID2020 alliance, Microsoft shared that it, the developers and partners in the Alliance will cooperate on the basis of blockchain, an open source identification system. This system will ensure the compatibility of people, applications, products and services between cloud providers, other blockchains and organizations.

Microsoft’s goal is to help set universal and scalable standards for these decentralized digital identities using blockchain technology. In the blockchain, information exists as a common database that is consistently consistent. Blockchain data does not exist in a centralized location, but is located on millions of computers across the Internet. The Alliance uses this secure and virtually “elusive” system to create a decentralized system for identifying the world’s population.

If blockchains sound familiar, they should be. Wallet apps, such as those used to buy things with popular cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, are the user interface that most people associate with blockchain technology. This technology has secure identity management at its core. It is on this technology that Microsoft and the Alliance are developing applications for global identity management.

It’s about the global community and the economy

Mobile technology is becoming an increasingly important tool for confirming your identity in various transaction scenarios, including buying and selling goods online or in person, using public transport, opening hotel room doors, participating in amusement parks and much more. Our smartphones are currently the main portal, intricately intertwining our digital identity with our physical world. Recognizing this, GSMA, an alliance of nearly 800 mobile operators, seeks to simplify SIM registration by encouraging flexible approaches to identity verification requirements for IDPs so that they can access mobile, SIM-based energy services and wallets .

This inclusion of even those who are deprived of suffrage in the digital landscape is of utmost importance for the ID2020 Alliances to provide a universally accepted identification system for everyone on the planet. It is important to note that the purpose of this identification system is to create the basis for integrating the participation of world citizens in the global community and the universal digital economy. A robust and verifiable identity, like any digital transaction, is fundamental to this vision.

Obvious concerns

The Alliance emphasizes that digital identity is the cornerstone of international development, and believes that digital identity should be with a person from birth to death. This goal, pursued by global cooperation, raises many ethical issues.

As the digital landscape is becoming more common, the boundaries between the physical and the real world continue to blur. If the lack of digital identity within the current paradigm limits participation in the modern economy, then the absence of such a single global globally recognized system can completely impede participation.

If the goal of the alliance is a globally recognized Digital Identity for everyone from birth to death, will this become a global mandate?

How will this be implemented and by whom?

What will happen to those people who do not want to participate?

Will they be chased?

How will the implementation of identification develop with technologies that go beyond smartphones?

Will there be wearable devices, implants like the ones used in the Swedish metro, or will some form of digital tattoo become the norm?

As more and more transactions become digital and are built around a single global identity standard supported by Microsoft, the question of who will manage this evolving global community and economy becomes relevant.

Moreover, non-participants in this system will not be able to buy or sell goods or services.

New Malthusianism and the dynasties of misanthropes

Many media outlets related to the coronavirus epidemic and the role of Bill Gates in the distribution of vaccines linked his activities with Malthusianism, an ideology aimed at reducing the world’s population. Although there is often a conspiracy thesis in the allegations, there are obvious facts that are easy to find in open sources.

However, the issue is more complex, and the problem is not only in the work of certain influence groups, whose members are well-known politicians of world scale.

It is enough to familiarize yourself with the secret NSA memorandum NSSM200, which was prepared by Henry Kissinger and adopted on December 10, 1974. The White House declassified it in 1989. It was entitled “The Consequences of World Population Growth for US Security and Interests Abroad.”

It was noted there that it is necessary to adjust the population growth of the Earth to 6 billion by the middle of the 21st century and to control the marginal growth at a level of no more than 8 billion.

Specific countries were identified that were “guilty” of overpopulation – India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nigeria, Mexico, Indonesia, Brazil, the Philippines, Thailand, Egypt, Turkey, Ethiopia and Colombia. It was also noted that the US should use agencies such as the United Nations Population Fund, which worked to reduce the population of 80 countries, more often. It was proposed to launch family planning programs, as well as reduce the ability of the population to fertility through educational programs, so that parents have an incentive to not have children. 

In other words, to brainwash at the level of individual countries and regions. At the same time, paragraph 37 argued that there is a different point of view on population issues, which considers that the situation is much more serious and urgent measures are required to avoid a demographic catastrophe.

In terms of population reduction, such funds as the Pathfinder Fund, the International Planned Parenthood Foundation, and the Population Council were already listed, and in addition to current programs, various experiments were planned to help reduce US costs.

Bill Gates Jr. and Bill Gates Sr. are affiliated with hundreds of foundations and research organizations, and influence political decisions in many states.

This may turn out to be news to many, but Bill Gates’ father was the head of the Planned Parenthood, as Bill Gates himself said in a television interview. Information on this is available in open sources. After Donald Trump came to the presidency, this organization ceased to receive funds from the US state budget, but subsidies from private funds continue to flow.

By the way, in addition to vaccines, Gates was seen in other experimental programs related to biotechnology, in particular, Zika virus, which is believed to be a risk, especially for pregnant women.

Zika virus is transmitted through mosquitoes Aedes aegypti. These mosquitoes are notable for being the genetic engineering product of a British biotech company called Oxitec. Aedes aegypti, according to test results, is struggling with the spread of dengue, yellow fever, chikungunya, Zika virus.

Oxford Insect Technologies and the British biotech company have developed genetically modified mosquitoes with the money from the Bill Gates Foundation. The first open trials of transgenic mosquitoes of the Aedes aegypti species took place in the Caribbean, on Grand Cayman Island in the fall of 2009. Then they multiplied, mutated and, as expected, became carriers of Zika virus. In this case, artificial intervention to organize the epidemic is obvious.

If we talk about a coherent international policy, then the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) deal with issues of birth and population at the UN. In fact, they are leading the strategy of a new Malthusianism – that is, birth control in the world through sterilization of women and abortion.

It is interesting that within the UN there are the same traditions associated with the practice of abortion and sterilization that are passed down from generation to generation.

For example, in 2001, Alexander Zanger, Chairman of the International Family Planning Council, was appointed UNFPA Goodwill Ambassador. As a representative and champion of birth control, Zanger in 1995 was named “one of the 100 most influential people on the planet at all times.” Meanwhile, Alexander Zanger is the grandson of sexual educator and feminist Margaret Zanger, who founded the American Birth Control League in 1921, and then the National Committee for the Legalization of Birth Control in 1929.

Alexander Zanger continues the work of his grandmother and is the chairman of the International Planned Parenthood Council.

Margaret Zanger owned the idea of ​​the widespread use of contraception and the practice of clinical abortion with state support. In addition, she was engaged in smuggling diaphragms in the United States and published obscene materials in the press, which repeatedly violated the federal laws of this country.

In 1923, Sanger founded the Clinical Research Bureau, using a loophole in law. The bureau became the first legal birth control clinic in the United States and was fully staffed by female doctors and social workers. The clinic received funding from the Rockefeller family (another lover of global control) who anonymously supported the Zanger case for ten years.

Margaret Zanger was ideologically anarchist and racist, believing that both birth control and eugenics propaganda “lead a race along the path of destroying the inferior.” 1 Her proposals included strict immigration policies, the free use of birth control methods, every right on family planning for free-minded and compulsory segregation or sterilization for the mentally retarded.

In 1926, Sanger delivered a lecture on birth control for the Ku Klux Clan women’s unit in Silver Lake, New Jersey, and later collaborated with similar racist groups in the United States.

However, her radical ideas concerned not only representatives of other peoples or persons with disabilities. In her book, Woman and the New Race, she wrote that “the most compassionate thing a large family can do for their baby is to kill him.” 4 In another book, “The Axis of Civilization,” she claimed that people in poor areas “who are of their animal nature breed like rabbits and could soon cross the borders of their regions or territories, and then infect the best elements of society with diseases and lower genes ”should be subject to natural selection.

Although she is revered in the United States as one of the founders of the women’s rights movement, a number of researchers rightly compared her ideas to the methods practiced in Nazi Germany.

From 1952 to 1959, Zanger was president of the International Federation of Family Planning (IFPS).

It should be noted that Zanger’s ideas are popular not only in the USA, but also in many other countries. Her supporters include family planners as well as healthcare workers. 

IPPF is headquartered in London, UK, and the organization was established in 1952.

The policy and strategy of the previously mentioned IFES suggests that “the basic human rights to reproductive freedom (the choice to refuse to have a baby through abortion, sterilization, contraception) should be accepted by everyone regardless of age, sexual orientation, financial status or location” (PPFG Bulletin, September 1992). IFES advocates same-sex marriage, supporting the development of freedom of sexual minorities, and introducing abortion drugs and contraception as a medicine.

Why the storm on Area 51 did not take place and what happened to those who still decided to try

Area 51. Photo: AP / John Locher

In Lincoln County (USA, Nevada, 140 kilometers from Las Vegas), near the towns of Heiko and Rachel (their total population is only 173 people) is one of the most secret places on Earth – the so-called “Area 51”. Until 2013, this area was classified, no data could even be found on the Internet. In fact, the US military base is located there, where, according to many journalists, the study of alien life forms is being conducted.

At the end of 2019, more than 2 million Americans planned to launch an “storm on Area 51” to finally understand what the U.S. military had been hiding for so long. How did it all end?

How did it all start?

There are no detailed data on Area 51 in the public domain. According to analysts, previously there was a military base where experimental tests were carried out using aircraft. Repeatedly in these parts, eyewitnesses noticed unidentified flying objects. And so it was until 2013, when satellite images of the base did not appear in the public domain (they were subsequently deleted, but some of the images were preserved).

It was then that the base became “open”, it was retrained into a training one. But many Americans do not believe this and claim that the main complex of “Area 51” is located underground. And the military base itself is just a cover from prying eyes.

These images appeared in the public domain. US authorities blamed the intelligence of the warring countries

You know that: it was in the area of ​​Area 51 that the top-secret SR-91 Aurora invisible aircraft was tested. According to eyewitnesses, visually it did not look like a familiar plane or a helicopter. It is possible that it was during the tests that they perceived it as a UFO, but the authorities did not provide any official comments on this subject. Since testing the SR-91 Aurora, the base has regularly increased in size.

Matty Roberts is an ordinary American who once jokingly posted a Facebook post to a humorous group, calling for an “Area 51 storm” to finally get evidence of aliens. This appeal, unexpectedly for everyone, was supported by more than 2 million Americans. And the date of the event was set on September 20, 2019. By the way, both Matty and the administration of the group where the post was originally posted, subsequently disowned this undertaking (and even deleted the post).

Subsequently, a new group was created dedicated to the storming of the closed territory, where it was already seriously proposed to “free the aliens.” Information about the event took on a viral distribution, which was even a concern for US Air Force leaders.

Preparing for the storm and the reaction of the authorities

“Preparation” for the storming began on September 16th. At the same time, Heiko and Rachel became a refuge for all those who planned to visit Site 51. Almost a week earlier, the desert villages turned into a kind of center for the “alien festival”. Already on September 17, more than 70 people came there as tourists.

The published plan for the storm on Area 51. This is a comic scheme, but it was repeatedly shown on TV

Authorities were worried about the intention to conduct a “storm”, arguing that the military had the right to use weapons against those who attempted to enter the restricted area under the Air Force’s security. And a week before September 20, an additional perimeter with barbed wire and additional spotlights appeared around the base. The entire military base was transferred to enhanced security.

As early as September 17, some eyewitnesses attempted to break into the fence of Area 51. Govert Sweep and Tees Granzier were caught by the US military for trying to dig under the perimeter of the guarded facility. As a result, they were sent to court with the confiscation of all available equipment (worth about 10 thousand dollars).

Starting on September 18, the so-called “meme festival” began in Heiko. About 2 thousand people visited him. For the most part, they just listened to music, drank alcohol, danced. The media claimed that none of those present was preparing for a real storm on Area 51, and everything that happened was more like a huge open-air disco.

Storm Area 51

On September 20, at 16:45 local time, a storming was planned. About 80 people came close to the gates of Site 51. They were not aggressive, mainly took pictures against the backdrop of a military facility or talked with officers standing at the checkpoint.

This event could not go without radical activists

All this was more like festivities. They even brought a huge flying saucer mockup, not to mention hundreds of “alien” inflatable dolls.

Eyewitnesses say that all this was prepared by those who planned to carry out the “storm”. But the participants claim that many of the decorations were installed by the military themselves. Allegedly, in this way they tried to translate the whole event as a joke, to weaken the aggressive mood of the “attack aircraft”. Who is right – now it’s not possible to find out.

But as a result of the storming was recognized as one that did not take place. Of the majority of those present, no one came close to the checkpoint, since a fine of $ 1,000 was imposed for this with confiscation of property. The military did not use weapons, but they did not even allow anyone to approach the checkpoint. It is not known exactly how many military personnel were in Area 51 at that moment, but obviously ten times more than the “attack aircraft”.

But several incidents nevertheless happened (according to the news bulletins):

  • One of the women present tried to climb under a barbed wire fence. In addition to the many scratches she received, she was subsequently fined 1 thousand dollars.
  • One of the men urinated on a barbed wire fence. He was also handed over to the local sheriff to draw up an offense report.
  • To all the rest, the military were as loyal as possible. Theoretically, almost everyone could have been arrested for being in a public place while intoxicated. But the officers preferred simply to “talk” with the “stormtroopers”, without using either force or weapons.

What happened to those who decided to storm?

The most “affected” by the Govert Sweep event. According to a court decision, he was arrested for 10 days, adding to the penalty of a fine of 2 thousand dollars (for attempting to illegally enter a closed facility and for parking in the wrong place for this). Everyone else who tried to get into the base received fines of up to $ 1,000. There were no injuries after September 20, 2019. In total, the storming, which was originally considered a joke, was supported by more than 2 million Americans. The event has become so widespread that in 2020 the “festival” is planned to be held again. Heiko and Rachel hope so: villages can soon turn into a popular tourist destination

The Nuremberg Code and the ethics against the upcoming forceful vaccinochipization

Vaccination / chipization is moving by leaps and bounds and people around the world are already starting to think about how to avoid this miraculous manipulation. Of course, no one knows the laws, but in different countries the laws are also different, however, there is a universal law. It is called the Nuremberg Code.

The Nuremberg Code is an international document regulating the principles of conducting medical experiments and procedures on people. The Code was developed and adopted after the Nuremberg trial of doctors in 1947, as a result of which many, many citizens were sent to the gallows, in particular for the forcible administration of different vaccines to people. The code has only ten points and it reads:

1. The absolutely necessary condition for conducting an experiment on a person is the voluntary consent of the latter.

2. The experiment should bring positive results to the society, unattainable by other methods or research methods; it should not be random, essentially non-binding in nature.

3. The experiment should be based on data obtained in laboratory studies on animals, knowledge of the history of the development of this disease or other studied problems. Its holding should be organized in such a way that the expected results justify the fact of its holding.

4. When conducting an experiment, it is necessary to avoid all unnecessary physical and mental suffering and damage.

5.None of the experiments should be carried out if there is reason to assume the possibility of death or a disabling injury to the subject; an exception, perhaps, may be cases when research physicians act as subjects in carrying out their experiments.

6. The degree of risk associated with the experiment should never exceed the humanitarian importance of the problem that the experiment is aimed at

7. The experiment should be preceded by appropriate training, and its implementation should be provided with the equipment necessary to protect the subject from the slightest possibility of injury, disability or death.

8. The experiment should be carried out only by persons with scientific qualifications. At all stages of the experiment, those who conduct it or are engaged in it require maximum attention and professionalism.

9. During the experiment, the subject should be able to stop him if, in his opinion, his physical or mental state makes it impossible to continue the experiment.

10. During the experiment, the researcher responsible for carrying out the experiment should be prepared to terminate it at any stage if professional considerations, conscientiousness and caution in the judgments required of it, give reason to believe that the continuation of the experiment may lead to injury, disability or death test subject.

As American lawyers write, the key points are 1 and 6 – that is, the person involved in the vaccination must be capable to give consent; a person should be able to exercise freedom of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, deception, coercion, direct or hidden; the person must possess sufficient knowledge and understanding of the elements of the subject in question. The next universal legal document is called Article 6 of the 2005 UNESCO statement on bioethics and human rights. It is written there:

Article 6, section 1. Any preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic medical interventions should be carried out only with the prior, free and informed consent of the person concerned on the basis of adequate information. If necessary, consent must be expressed and can be revoked by the person concerned at any time and for any reason.

Article 6, section 3: In no case shall the collective agreement of the community or the consent of the community leader or other authority be a substitute for the informed consent of individuals.

Thus, any orders of a particular Parliament or a celebrated supreme leader on compulsory vaccination will violate Article 6 of the UNESCO statement on human rights and bioethics. Along the way, they violate the Nuremberg Code, in particular Article 1 and Article 6. It is still unknown how the authorities of different countries will try to circumvent these fundamental ethical documents.
