Tony Blair Calls for Creation of “Digital ID” in Post-Coronavirus World

An Orwellian proposal.

Published

on

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair called for western societies to implement a form of “digital ID” in the post coronavirus-world to prevent individuals from spreading the disease, through a system that Blair seems to suggest would allow figures of authority to instantly access the medical information of their underlings.

The neoliberal-era establishment politician was speaking virtually at the COGX Conference on Tuesday.

What we’re saying in this paper is you can create a digital ID today that is much more easily protected, so you can deal with a lot of the privacy and surveillance issues that worry people. It’s a natural evolution of the way that we’re going to use technology in any event, to transact daily life. This COVID crisis gives an additional reason for doing that.”

Blair claims that in order to restart businesses and international travel, “you need to know people’s disease status.

Unless you’re able to record some of this data in a way that people can use, it’s going to be difficult to go back to anything like a near normal in things like transport. So, if you’re going to start international travel again, how do you do that, unless people can be easily tested and have some record of that test?”

Blair’s proposal doesn’t even seem to avoid the mere appearance of fundamentally violating traditional civil liberties, openly forcing the public to disclose personal medical data in the name of disease prevention.

Blair admitted the pandemic had proved a useful tool in advancing his vision for a “digital ID-” a proposal he says he has always supported. “I think there’s always been a good case for introducing some form of digital ID, but I think that case is even more powerful today.

Quite obviously, making individual medical information accessible on such a standardized and seemingly compulsory basis would be a severe violation of the traditional ethics of medicine practiced in western society.

Commentators broadly affiliated with the political and media elite have increasingly supported proposals that seem to resemble Blair’s, with some suggestions for the mass implementation of biological “microchips” to allow employers to monitor their employees at any time of the day.

Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts

The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.

Published

The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.

In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”

Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”

The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:

After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.

Toccalini concluded:

Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.

Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
