One World Governance: China the Blueprint for Governments - Part 1
“As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the close of the age?”” Matthew 24:3
“The way of peace they do not know, and there is no justice in their paths; they have made their roads crooked; no one who treads on them knows peace” Isaiah 59:8
Never let a crisis go to waste!
It would not be the first time that a crisis triggered larger reforms in the national and international economic order. For example, after the 1929 crisis countries and states began to pump-prime growth by Keynesian demand policies, thus injecting equity into their economies. After World War II a new international order was established with the creation of the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Bank in order to overcome the policy fragmentation of the 1930s.
As Stephane Hallegatte and Stephan Hammer from the World Bank put it: “If we get it right, the response to COVID-19 may not only minimize pain and suffering now, but can also build the foundations for a greener, safer, and more prosperous future.” IMF’s Georgieva has said, “today we are confronted with a crisis like no other. Covid-19 has disrupted our social and economic order at lightning speed and ends with a quote from Victor Hugo: “Great perils have this beauty, that they bring to light the fraternity of strangers”.
While these institutions are debating on the opportunities the pandemic gives them to advance their globalist agenda, the media is fill with and fearmongering news often opinion pieces. But the Covid-19 presents greater than just manufactured hysteria. People lives are changing and the rule of law has been replaced with guidelines, that often appear to the public as legal mandates:
Coronavirus Bill: the greatest loss of liberty in our history - The Coronavirus Bill, having sailed through the House of Commons, is expected to become law today. The Bill gives the government and the authorities unprecedented new powers, unheard of in a democracy during peacetime. Silkie Carlo, director of Big Brother Watch, has warned that these powers are unreasonably draconian, and could be here to stay long after the threat of the virus has dissipated. spiked caught up with Carlo to find out more.
Medical Martial Law 2020 - As the lockdowns go into place and the military takes to the streets in country after country, the decades of preparation for medical martial law are finally paying off for the pandemic planners. Today on this emergency edition of The Corbett Report podcast, James lays out the steps that have led us to the brink of martial law and the steps that are being taken to implement it now. Please help to spread this important information and to raise awareness of the crisis that we are facing.
The Coronavirus Act 2020 Is Extremely Dangerous for Disabled People Like Me - Buried in the vast Act is a clause that will increase the risk of those who are already most vulnerable. This clause removes local councils’ duties to provide care for disabled people unless it is a breach of their human rights. Under normal circumstances, this would have disastrous consequences for many people, but at a time when a large number of the 1.5 million of us will be self-isolating and shielding for months on end — to protect not only ourselves but also the functioning of our extremely precious NHS — this could be potentially devastating.
Coronavirus Bill: the greatest loss of liberty in our history - The Coronavirus Bill, having sailed through the House of Commons, is expected to become law today. The Bill gives the government and the authorities unprecedented new powers, unheard of in a democracy during peacetime. Silkie Carlo, director of Big Brother Watch, has warned that these powers are unreasonably draconian, and could be here to stay long after the threat of the virus has dissipated. spiked caught up with Carlo to find out more. The current emergency suggests a situation of overwhelming necessity to safeguard the population through the curtailment of its liberty. Coronavirus: Woman 'wrongly charged under new law' - A woman was fined £660 after being wrongly charged under coronavirus laws; British Transport Police has admitted. Marie Dinou, 41, from York, was arrested at Newcastle Central Station on Saturday after she refused to tell police why she needed to travel. The dangerous breakdown of the rule of law - People are being arrested and convicted for crimes that do not exist.
UK: New regulations extend fingerprint retention rules for a further six months - A second set of retention regulations made under powers conferred by section 24 of the Coronavirus Act 2020 was put before Parliament 10 September 2020, to come into force 1 October 2020. The Coronavirus (Retention of Fingerprints and DNA Profiles in the Interests of National Security) Regulations 2020
The Coronavirus Act Rebellion is a Warning Shot to our Draconian Government - The period of ‘emergency’ legislation is over. This week, MPs took less than 90 minutes to debate and renew the draconian Coronavirus Act and all its executive powers to suspend elections, close ports, ban protests and detain ‘potentially infectious’ citizens. Is this, perhaps, the new normal? The controversial Act had sped through parliament on a three-day emergency timetable with barely a glance before the March lockdown on the promise of greater scrutiny in the weeks and months to come. It was a promise unfulfilled. If you thought three days to pass an Act of constitutional significance that incurred the greatest suspension of liberties in peace-time was too little, then 90 minutes six months later was an “utter, utter disgrace,” as Sir Charles Walker MP furiously put it.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said these new powers will only be used when it is “absolutely necessary”. But governments have a way of holding onto tools that undermine citizens’ privacy long after the moment of crisis has passed. Take, for example, the United States’ 2001 Patriot Act, which was passed in response to the 9/11 attacks. The Patriot Act gave the government broad surveillance powers with little oversight, including demanding customer data from telecoms without court approval. Twenty years later, it’s still around.
If there ever was a time for sweeping laws and solutions to be implemented is the pandemic. The unified response to the Covid-19 gives no option for countries to act independently as a sovereign nation. Instead dictates are disseminated by wealthy, influential, and unelected technocrats who set the agenda and spread its propaganda through key international structures that includes, but not limited to, the World Economic Forum, United Nations, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, Bank of International Settlements, World Health Organisation, etc, supported by private-public partnerships and their stakeholders. For those who refuse, for example to lockdown, pressure is immediately mounted by their mouthpieces through the media, who in turn bombard the public with stories after stories of their leaders’ incompetence evidence by new polls.
These people have collective identity, shared visions, philosophies, etc and they have capacity to mobilize resources. The people are treated like herds like the plebs and slaves of Rome. The only difference between the tyrannical system of past empires, is technology and economy, which is what is coming in the next phase of the pandemic. The inevitability of these collectiveness agenda is a world government in which every area of our lives is controlled by the state enforced by dictates, much like it is now in the pandemic, but far worse. Just as the police agencies are enforcing government dictates, so will the global surveillance and tracking systems and localised global policing will ensure that the masses are being compliant.
China the Blueprint for Governments
History has shown us how easily a tyrannical government is gradually formed. A perfect example or a prototype of this global state is China, in which a party of leaders (regional governments) control 1.2 billion through surveillance and brutal police systems, with legal system that conforms to the party's agenda. For those that do not conform, there is always camps for “voluntary re-education” much like the million people or so that are mostly from the Muslim Uighur community that have been detained without trial.
Since May 2014, when Chinese Communist Party Secretary Zhang Chunxian announced the People’s “War on Terror” in the Uighur region, Chinese technology firms have received billions of dollars in Chinese state capital to build a comprehensive Muslim “re-education” system in Northwest China. Over the same period of time they have created a wide range of computer vision and data analysis tools which have the potential to change forms of policing and incarceration in many places around the world. These innovations, however, have come at the cost of what U.S. lawmakers describe as “crimes against humanity.” Wall Street Journal reported in 2019, that “Some of the biggest names in U.S. technology have provided components, financing and know-how to China’s multibillion-dollar surveillance industry. The country’s authoritarian government uses those tools to track ethnic minorities, political dissidents and others it sees as a threat to its power—including in Xinjiang, where authorities are creating an all-seeing digital monitoring system that feeds into a network of detention camps for the area’s Muslims. China is ramping up its ability to spy on its nearly 1.4 billion people to new and disturbing levels, giving the world a blueprint for how to build a digital totalitarian state.
Controlling the Masses – Social Credit Systems
In the run-up to the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, Chinese security services achieved a new level of control over the country’s internet. During China’s coronavirus outbreak, Xi’s government leaned hard on private companies in possession of sensitive personal data. Any emergency data-sharing arrangements made behind closed doors during the pandemic could become permanent. Chinese Present Xi also wants to use AI’s analytical powers to push China to the cutting edge of surveillance. He wants to build an all-seeing digital system of social control, patrolled by precog algorithms that identify potential dissenters in real time.
The “official blueprint” planning document released by China’s chief administrative body was five years ago. It called for the establishment of a nationwide scheme. The scheme became known as the “Social Credit System”, a unified record system for individuals, businesses and the government to be tracked and evaluated for trustworthiness. The Credit System regulate social behaviour, paying taxes and bills on time, it infringes the legal rights of residents and organizations, the right to privacy and personal dignity. It is a tool for financial, judicial and local government control, and a comprehensive government surveillance used for suppression of dissent from the Communist Party of China.
As of June 2019, according to the National Development and Reform Commission of China, 26.82 million air tickets as well as 5.96 million high-speed rail tickets had been denied to people who were deemed "untrustworthy (on a blacklist), and 4.37 million "untrustworthy" people had chosen to fulfil their duties required by the law. In July 2019, additional 2.56 million flight tickets as well as 90 thousand high-speed train tickets were denied to those on the blacklist.
According to the Chinese government's 2015 Plan for Implementation, the Social Credit System is due to be fully implemented by 2020. Once implemented the system will manage the rewards, or punishments, of citizens on the basis of their economic and personal behaviour. The types of punishments include: flight ban, exclusion from private schools, slow internet connection, exclusion from high prestige work, exclusion from hotels, and registration on a public blacklist:
Exclusion from school admissions - If the parents of a child were to score below a certain threshold, their children would be excluded from the private schools in the region or even national universities.
Social status - One's personal score could be used as a social symbol on social and couples’ platforms. For example, China's biggest matchmaking service, Baihe, allows its users to publish their own score.
Accommodation and employment - prevent low scorers from renting hotels, using credit cards, and blacklist individuals from being able to procure employment.
Businesses - Companies are expected to comply with government policies and regulations to avoid having their scores lowered by disgruntled employees, customers or clients. Companies with bad credit scores will potentially face unfavourable conditions for new loans, higher tax rates, investment restrictions, and lower chances to participate in publicly funded projects. Government plans also envision real-time monitoring of a business’ activities, violations on the part of a business could result in a lowered score almost instantly.
Repression of religious minorities - City-level pilot projects for the social credit score system have included rewarding individuals for aiding authorities in enforcing restrictions of religious practices, including coercing practitioners of Falun Gong to renounce their beliefs [dubious – discuss] and reporting on Uighurs who publicly pray, fast during Ramadan, or perform other Islamic practices.
Debt collection - A Hebei court released an app showing a "map of deadbeat debtors" within 500 meters and encouraged users to report individuals who they believed could repay their debts. A spokesman of the court stated that "It's a part of our measures to enforce our rulings and create a socially credible environment."
Public display - Mugshots of blacklisted individuals are sometimes displayed on large LED screens on buildings, or shown before the movie in movie theatres.
Rewards - The rewards of having a high score include easier access to loans, priority during bureaucratic paperwork, less waiting time at hospitals, discounts at hotels, greater likelihood of receiving employment offers and so on.
Authorities in China’s troubled, heavily surveilled region of Xinjiang are deploying a platform that marshals the troves of data being collected to identify and pre-emptively detain potential troublemakers, according to a rights group.
Human Rights Watch groups said the “predictive policing” platform combines feeds from surveillance cameras with other personal data such as phone use, travel records and religious orientation, and then analyses the information to identify suspicious individuals.
The lockdown has exposed the Western countries in ways not dissimilar to China:
Quebec City Says It Will Isolate “Uncooperative” Citizens In Secret Corona Facility - During a press conference, Dr. Jacques Girard, who heads the Quebec City public health authority, drew attention to a case where patrons at a bar were ordered to wait until their COVID-19 tests came back, but disregarded the command and left the premises before the results came back positive. This led to them being deemed “uncooperative” and forcibly interned in a quarantine facility….. “Because we have had people isolated at home. And then, we saw the person was not at home. So, we went to their home, and then told them, we are isolating you where we want you to be,” said Girard. “Six other Quebec City bars “known to have been frequented by Kirouac regulars” are now being examined by public health officials,” reports the RAIR Foundation. “It should be noted that it is not being claimed that anyone is actually sick from the coronavirus. But the state has the power to force a citizen into isolation anyway.” As we previously highlighted, the government of New Zealand announced similar measures, saying that they will put all new coronavirus infectees and their close family members in “quarantine facilities.”
Woman is forced to wear an ANKLE BRACELET after allegedly allowing two friends to visit her while she was supposed to be in self-isolation - A 33-year-old woman is the first West Australian to be forced to wear an ankle bracelet after allegedly breaching quarantine by entertaining visitors. The woman was fitted with the monitoring device on Friday after police said they caught two men at her Perth home on Thursday during a routine check on her mandatory 14-day isolation. She had been allowed to enter the state from New South Wales on September 1, but was told to isolate herself for two weeks' coronavirus quarantine at a private Perth residence, WA Police said in a statement on Saturday.
Daniel Andrews’ plan for indefinite detention - The Victorian Labor government has introduced a bill to parliament that coupled with other measures is one of the most egregious attacks on civil liberties seen in war or peacetime. The Bill would allow people to be detained indefinitely and give sweeping powers to untrained people to become “authorised officers” with sweeping powers to arrest and detain fellow Victorians. Called the COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) Amendment Bill, it overrides all other laws and legislation with the exception of the Charter of Human Rights (which the government ignores as it is not binding), the State Constitution Act 1975 and the laws created by the Bill itself…… Put simply, this means you can be locked up and detained indefinitely at the whim of a designated officer. There is no provision whatsoever for a review of the detention. Ultimately a person may have to apply to the Supreme Court to grant an order of Habeas Corpus for release.
China is the laboratory of the future of surveillance, and future test subjects should be frightened because it is becoming increasingly evident that countries are applying systems similar to China. Starting with or without China, individual governments, especially those with close trade relations with China, specially through the Belt and Road debt trap trade deals, are already interested in using the social credit concept to speed up their financial credit systems.
In March 2018, the Kazakh government approached relevant departments in the government of India, Turkey, Laos, Russia, Malaysia and Iran to collaborate on its “Credit Asia” initiative. In February 2018, Handelsblatt Global reported that Germany may be "sleep walking" towards a system comparable to China's. Using data from the universal credit rating system, Schufa, geolocation, and health records to determine access to credit and health insurance. In the UK councils are now using citizen-scoring algorithms to public data in order to segment and “score” citizens and population groups according to their social group or “risk profile”.
As part of the Russian government’s $53-billion Digital Economy Program designed to help roll out digital technologies nationwide by 2024, the head of IT at Russia’s Pension Fund recently estimated that 80 percent of the population will have state-gathered “digital profiles” by 2025, a plan that observers say resembles China’s scoring system. The government has made recent legal and technical moves which further tighten control, including legislation passed this year to establish a “sovereign Russian internet.” Many Westerners are disturbed by what they read about China’s social credit system. But such systems, it turns out, are not unique to China.
In 2017, Venezuela started developing a smart-card ID known as the "carnet de la patria", or "fatherland card", with the help of Chinese telecom company ZTE. The system included a database which stores details like birthdays, family information, employment and income, property owned, medical history, state benefits received, presence on social media, membership of a political party, and whether a person voted. Many in Venezuela have expressed concern that the card is an attempt to tighten social control through monitoring all aspects of daily life.
In the U.S., up until recently, the term credit typically referred to one’s predicted financial standing and trustworthiness. But lately, marketplace lenders have been trying to incorporate more and more valuable sources in their credit assessment, believing that it helps them generate significantly more accurate results. And that changing landscape has been endorsed by the U.S. government. Just last week, on December 3, 2019, various government agency leaders announced that credit scores in the U.S. have officially gone beyond the traditional financial behaviour principles. And while they did not announce any specific standards, regulators formally backed the use of alternative information – not traditionally used by the national consumer reporting agencies – in calculating consumers’ credit scores.
In 2015, Facebook patented a technology for loan approvals based on a user’s social connections. The patent documents explain that a loan application triggers an examination of the credit rating of the applicant’s social network contacts. Increasingly, every start-ups or tech company are becoming financial service providers, also known as FinTech. However, European and US banks may be on the brink of an "Uber moment", as the explosion of fintech disrupts the industry and leads to massive job cuts over the next decade, a new report predicts.
According to the Bank for International Settlements, Fintech is part of the financial inclusion that has been adopted by countries, specialising the developing world, a region supported by large institutions such as the United Nations and the World Bank. The latter wants to provide financial access to 500 million unbanked adults as part of the World Bank Group's goal of achieving Universal Financial Access (UFA) by 2020 and its achievement is seen as a top priority.
In 2017, I felt compelled to write an article, The Endgame of “Financial Inclusion”, after being alarmed by the dangerous developments I saw happening around the world concerning the march towards cashless society, digital currencies, biometric, surveillance and the Internet of Things (IoT) by driven by international governance bodies, like the World Bank and IMF aided by the UN and similar organisations that is mentioned in this article and Governments' Actions on Covid-19: Crimes Against Humanity. What concerned me was that these organisations were setting the agenda for governments to act upon and the news of these directives or instructions did not come from conspiracy sites but from the mainstream news via press releases, announcements, or global campaigns and initiatives from Financial Institutions and intergovernmental organizations like the G7 and G20.
For the first time in history, technology is giving the Communist Party of China the means to control every aspect of life. The key is the gathering and evaluating of information to uncover any threat to political stability. Xi is acquiring the tools from his enemies in the United States. Facebook enables officials to keep posts from appearing on people’s news feeds in specific geographic areas. Google has been designing the search engine Dragonfly that denies access to restricted information. Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, and IBM are complying with a law the requires them to store data within China, where the authorities can access it.
The willingness of American high-tech corporations to cooperate with Beijing’s strengthening social credit system appeared with the creation by IBM and Google in August 2013 of the OpenPower Foundation. The Foundation is described as the “OpenPower Consortium.” ….
Three hundred and fifty corporations and institutions from around the world have joined the Foundation…..and it is this corporation that has aroused concern about how US high-tech companies are aiding in building the power of the Chinese police state.
Semptian Corporation was founded in 2003 by Chen Longsen, also known as George Chen. He had been the director of the Chinese operations of the U.S. cryptography and computer security firm SafeNet Identity and Data Protection Solutions. In 2011, Der Spiegel published That Semptian had contributed to the creation of China’s internet censorship system that blocks access to prohibited websites.
The Ministry of Science and Technology has granted to the Semptian Corporation for its technical achievements the status “of “National High-Tech Enterprise.” That gives the company a variety of benefits…. Besides being a favorite at home, the company boasts that it is associated with the world technical giants of the caliber of IBM and Xilinx;…. According to The Intercept, the three corporations have collaborated….. to analyze vast amounts of data more efficiently… being used to expand internet surveillance and censorship for security agencies in China. A program known as Aegis is….. able to maintain surveillance of the entire country, track anyone’s movements by a cellphone, and to monitor the content of telephone calls and emails. Aegis means shield or safeguard and is being marketed internationally by iNext that operates from Semptian’s offices in Shenzhen. Semptian is to participate in the Milipol security trade fair in Paris in November 2022 to market its technology to the world. China is exporting the means for authoritarian governments to be able to isolate their populations behind the Aegis’ shield. China’s Social Credit: Tyranny with American Characteristics
Just as China’s government has a history of using major historical events to introduce and embed surveillance measures - of all the changes brought by a pandemic and the responses to it this year, many seem as if they were waiting to happen, given a hard nudge. In many cases, this year’s sudden lockdowns and shutdowns only accelerated changes already trending and the revelation of existing strategies.
COVID-19 has provided another excuse for governments around the world to expand its powers and crack down on rights, freedoms and rule of law in a continued state of emergency, effectively as groups of states coordinate their policies and/or acting together to achieve specified goals. It is becoming noticeable that the pandemic is a trojan horse to control the people and establish a world government. Multilateral institutions such as the WHO, World Bank, UN and the IMF are structured deliberately to limit the power of individual governments through memberships and legally binding treaties.
‘World government’ refers to the idea of all humankind united under one common political authority. Arguably, it has not existed so far in human history, yet proposals for a unified global political authority have existed since ancient times—in the ambition of kings, popes and emperors, and the dreams of poets and philosophers. Dante argued that wars and all their causes would be eliminated if “the whole earth and all that humans can possess be a monarchy, that is, one government under one ruler. Because he possesses everything, the ruler would not desire to possess anything further, and thus, he would hold kings contentedly within the borders of their kingdoms, and keep peace among them” (Convivio, 169). In Monarchia [1309–13] (1995, 13).
Emery Reves, while at the same time the Senate Subcommittee on Foreign Relations was considering several motions to urge the Truman administration to adopt a policy of world federalism. In fact, to this day the World Federalist Movement—an international NGO founded in 1947 and recognized by the United Nations—boasts a membership of 30,000 to 50,000 worldwide.
United States President Harry Truman, who oversaw the founding of the United Nations after the Second World War, kept these lines from Tennyson's poem in his wallet (Kennedy 2006, xi)
For I dipt into the future, far as human eye could see, Saw the Vision of the world, and all the wonders that would be; … Till the war-drum throbb'd no longer, and the battle-flags were furl'd In the Parliament of man, the Federation of the world.
There the common sense of most shall hold a fretful realm in awe, And the kindly earth shall slumber, lapt in universal law. —Alfred, Lord Tennyson, “Locksley Hall” (1837)
A major problem we face today is that most one-worlders avoid explicit references and paeans to world government: it is viewed as counterproductive "because it frightens people." So admits former Senator Alan Cranston (D-CA), a former national president of the United World Federalists and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Trilateral Commission (TC). Back in 1949 Cranston successfully pushed through the California legislature a resolution memorializing Congress to call a national convention to amend the U.S. Constitution to "expedite and insure the participation of the United States in a world federal government." He still wants the same thing; he just knows he has a better chance of obtaining it if he goes about it quietly and calls it by another name.
Cranston says he remains a World Federalist because "I believe deeply in the need for world law….. I believe in the concept of federalism on the world scale." But, said Cranston in an interview in the April 1976 issue of Transition, a publication of the Institute for World Order, "the more talk about world government, the less chance of achieving it, because it frightens people who would accept the concept of world law."
Rather than speak openly of world government, the globalists more frequently employ code terms such as "world order," "world law," "global transformation," "economic integration," "multilateralism”, "global community," "collective security," “global governance, etc.
Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary gives but a one-word definition for "governance," and that is "government." And world government is precisely what the Commission on Global Governance proposed in 1992.
Leaders of governments and intergovernmental institutions have for years been calling strong multilateral institutions and stronger global governance. As the President of Ethiopia put it in his letter to the G20: “These challenges cannot be adequately addressed (…) by one country; they require a globally coordinated response. Just as the virus knows no border, our responses also should not know borders.” At a time when every country is scrambling to secure medical supplies, we must jointly work to keep production chains and trade routes open to distribute according to need. Lessons, data, and research from one country might influence decision making elsewhere – the flow of such information needs to be organized. And lastly, with asset prices crumbling and fiscal space diminishing, we need strong counter-cyclical actors willing to do “whatever it takes.” This implies that we must check if our global political and economic architecture is suitable for dealing with those challenges. Besides, it means that the magnitude of the response should be commensurate to the challenge developing countries are facing, based on sound economic analysis.
This in line with the recent suggestion by Gerd Müller, Germany’s Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development – to establish a World Crisis Committee under the leadership of the UN Secretary-General. influential figures like Gordon Brown and Tony Blair to press for new structures of global governance. In an interview published on March 26, Brown said that there should be a temporary global task force endowed with executive powers. Tony Blair has been no less adamant about the need for a super-G20 as a coordinator of the global pandemic response, adding that the UN Security Council is no longer representative of the world today. For Blair, the G20 itself constitutes “the only short-term practical way” to deliver such coordination. But in a long-term perspective, he wants to see “much better structures in place for us to combat what is a global crisis, with global efficacy” — and not merely to deal with COVID-19, since “there may well be future times where we require this.” Recently, G20 leaders agreed during a virtual summit, to do “whatever it takes” to minimise the social and economic damage of the COVID-19 pandemic.
