Decided to make a thread on this topic. I feel like it's important for everyone to see what's happening behind the scenes of the grandest puppet show of them all.

ePassport


An ePassport is a biometric passport which includes a chip, which can be used at the automated ePassport gates instead of having your passport checked by a Border Force officer. The chip holds the same information that is printed on the passport’s data page: the holder’s name, date of birth, and other biographic information. In some countries, including Germany, ePassports include two fingerprints as well.


Acuity Market Analysis Research Firm


There are currently 122 countries with ePassport programs which Acuity estimates are producing 124 million ePassports annually. Most ePassports are valid for 5 or 10 years and there are now more than 675 million in circulation. Current annual revenues are in the $4.5 Billion range. This is expected to grow by about 25% by 2020 reaching more than $5 billion annually with more than 817 million in ePassprts in circulation.


Acuity


There are currently 130 countries worldwide with National eID programs producing just over 600 Million ID cards a year and generating just shy of $10 billion in annual revenues. Acuity expects card volume to reach nearly 800 Million cards per year by 202o with revenue edging up to just over $10 Billion annually.


Article about National eID


In addition, these national ID programs are also the opportunity to create a secure digital identity for each card holder. These secure electronic identity cards, generally referred to as eID cards or simply eID's are opening the gate to secure and trusted on-line services.


Meanwhile Estonia is pioneering their own digital empire.

E-Estonia


Nearly every one of Estonia's 1.3 million citizens has an ID card, which is much more than simply a legal photo ID.

Technically, it is a mandatory national card with a chip that carries embedded files, and using 2048-bit public key encryption, it can function as definitive proof of ID in an electronic environment.

Functionally, the ID card provides digital access to all of Estonia’s secure e-services, releasing a person from tedious red tape and making daily tasks faster and more comfortable whether we are talking about banking or business operations, signing documents or obtaining a digital medical prescription.


The future is here and with automation my theory is that pretty soon humans driving cars will be outlawed or kept to a minimum in favor of totally safe automated vehicles.

The silly conspiracy theories of the beast system and chip seem to be manifesting into reality. The question is now is are we manifesting this reality by focusing on it or is it manifesting organically as part of our evolution from man to machine?

It's about convenience. Humans don't like to wait. So if you give them an option a) wait in line for 2 hours or b) have your EID scanned and wait about 3 minutes, barring any difficulties, which one will they choose?

Not sure but the lady who runs the research firm is list under "Principle" if you're looking for the brains of that operation.

Also this is an investment strategy.

The system is closing in on us while we try and decide what puppet is going to lead us to our ultimate destiny.

Mark of the beast was supposed to be barcodes. When we automated our library for the first time (in the 1980's) we had people writing us insisting we remove them from the database of library cards because, barcodes. Don't know how these guys buy food, but whatever....

Yea it’s only scary when it’s mandatory. I like the idea behind it but I’d rather not put the chip wihin me. Maby a card with a retina scan verification.

I am sure China with it social score system will be the living imagine of the biblical mark of the beast. Knowing where every citizen is and controlling their buying and selling. Controlling their travel.

The barcodes were a test and the start
The real key was Clinton signing approval for every single SSN to be entered in a database

Very few of us will accept this, but our children.... I believe they will be chipped up to the eyeballs before long.

I do agree that initially it is about convenience. I admit, it does make things easier. The problem I have is that this is the way everything starts,it is about making life easier. Then the corruption of that convenience begins and this one has the potential for so much corruption and control it makes my head spin.

No need, everything a chip can do a smart phone can do better. The kids love them, the corporations love them, and so does big brother.

Where do we have these phones when we use them? Nah it’s just coincidence...
