The slippery slope is slickening, and the social control apparatus is becoming more overt. Employment “experts” have verified that companies can make their employees get the coronavirus vaccine if they want to keep their jobs, and now airlines are following suit.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has announced that it is developing a “digital health pass” that will allow passengers to board commercial flights only after showing proof of vaccination or rigidly up-to-date approved coronavirus health status.
Welcome Aboard KGB Airlines
The latest proposed Orwellian infringement on personal liberties isn’t tap-dancing around its Security State overtones. An IATA statement calls for the creation of a “Contactless Travel App” for customers that:
“… enables passengers to (1) create a ‘digital passport’, (2) receive test and vaccination certificates and verify that they are sufficient for their itinerary, and (3) share testing or vaccination certificates with airlines and authorities to facilitate travel.”
From here, of course, it is a short skip and a hop to simply mandating mandatory vaccinations for all airline passengers. Which is exactly what major airlines are already plotting to do. “I’ve talked to my colleagues at other airlines across the globe, and I think it’s going to be a common theme across the board,” Alan Joyce, CEO of Qantas, Australia’s national airline, told The New York Times on Nov. 23.
Get the jab or you can’t fly. Can’t fly and you lose your job. Tens of millions of Americans will soon face such a scenario if this corrosive corporate mindset has its way. The logic can easily be applied to sundry other social situations, and rest assured, that is in the cards as well.
“People who test negative for coronavirus could get a five-day freedom pass to attend big events or access public buildings, under plans being considered by public health experts running a trial program in England,” reads the lead sentence to a Bloomberg article from Nov. 27 on the latest cutting-edge social conditioning operations in the U.K.
The term “freedom pass” truly says it all. Submit to constant government tracking of your viral status and you will be temporarily allowed to do all the things formerly free people once took for granted. Human beings in highly developed Western nations are being conditioned to accept being treated like cattle. Cows are regularly tested for tuberculosis before being allowed out to graze with the rest of the herd. We’ll have one up on our bovine friends, however. Our tags will be digitalized instead of stapled to our ears.
Steak Eaters Not Allowed
But why even stop with the coronavirus? After all, it is hardly the only hysteria embraced by our ruling elites in the name of saving us from ourselves. Climate change is an existential threat to all mankind, according to the dominant establishment narrative. Will we soon be waking up to the day when we will be forced to undergo testing affirming we didn’t eat anything that may contribute to global warming – such as beef – before being allowed to partake in public events? How about a social credit scorecard to precisely determine how much of a carbon foothold individuals have accrued in a set timeframe before allowing them to fly or even drive a car?
Far-fetched, you say? This ludicrous idea already has its advocates. Climate change lockdowns should follow in the wake of coronavirus social curbs, Mariana Mazzucato, “professor in the economics of innovation and public value at University College London,” asserted in a September article for the website Project Syndicate.
“Under a ‘climate lockdown,’ governments would limit private-vehicle use, ban consumption of red meat, and impose extreme energy-saving measures, while fossil-fuel companies would have to stop drilling,” the nutty professor explained.
Or are we the crazy ones for being deluded enough to think that such absurdities are beyond the pale? Why shouldn’t Professor Mazzucato believe her extreme agenda could one day be enacted given all that has happened in 2020? Westerners have already forfeited so much of their once-cherished liberties in the name of “safety” and the “greater good.” Who is to say how far they can be pushed moving forward?
Deep down, observant citizens must know by now that these all-encompassing social curbs aren’t going to go away once the coronavirus recedes. The pipes have been laid; the machinery is set. The pandemic hype was merely the injection agent to get the tyranny installed into our minds and souls.
Once compromised, the immune system of bodies once stridently attuned to freedom will be overwhelmed by the bacillus of fear-filled servility. And the self-confidence of a people who once firmly understood concepts of right and wrong will fully give way to the rise of “expertism,” which tells them that they can’t possibly grasp what is in their best interest. That they must trust the benevolent all-seeing eye that watches over them.
Stay in your pen. Get your shots. Obey your masters. Do this and you will be issued your Freedom Pass, granting you quick swigs of illusory independence. If Americans passively accept this nightmare, we shall have merited the calamity that will befall us.
