Increasing use of Bill Gates’ digital ID to control payments, health data and agriculture

More and more countries around the world have started to introduce a new global digital ID system, which is being strongly promoted by Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates. Gates has travelled to various countries to convince heads of state and government of the idea, as can be seen in the video with India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

However, the system not only makes it possible to prove a person’s identity. According to Gates, his “inclusive” system supports “digital payments”, “health records”, “tutoring for children”, “advice for farmers”, e.g. “registering their land”, as well as a “biometric digital ID”.

Gates notes that his World Economic Forum-related “digital public infrastructure” will “connect” all of this in one place. However, Gates admits that the additional “features” are a “second phase” that will be added later once his digital ID system is rolled out globally.

Gates made the comments during his recent trip to India in talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. India is among a growing number of countries that have already rolled out the digital ID system to the public.

Gates argues that India serves as an “inspiration” for other countries to adopt the system. Following the nationwide rollout of the programme, Indian citizens are now required to use their digital ID to access basic services.

While the IDs are not compulsory, people are essentially excluded from society if they refuse to use the technology. The system has set alarm bells ringing in the free world as the Indian experiment spreads to Western countries, as has already happened in Australia but also in Austria with “ID-Austria”.

In Australia, the Senate has just passed a new bill to introduce the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) digital ID system for public use. The bill was waved through with virtually no opposition.

This means that Australia is officially on the way to a national, state-regulated and WEF-controlled digital identity system.

The system will replace traditional ID cards and can be linked to systems containing large amounts of personal and financially sensitive data used by banks, insurance companies, utility companies and government agencies. Australian Finance Minister Katy Gallagher emphasises that Digital IDs will make online use “safer and easier” for citizens.

“Digital ID will make it safer and easier for Australians to prove who they are online,” Gallagher said. “Australians will share less personal information, which will be stored by fewer organisations subject to tighter regulation, reducing the risk of identity theft online.”

Not everyone agrees with Gallagher, however. In a recent post on X, Russell Broadbent, Member of the House of Representatives for Monash, said:

“I’m fed up with being told what I can and can’t do, say and think.”

Now Australia is heading towards a “digital prison” where everything will be known, leading to dangerous and unprecedented control over people’s lives.

“Speak up while you still can!”

In his video, he said: “Just before Easter, the Senate rammed through the Digital Identity Bill.

“No debate, no consultation and no respect for the Australian people or parliament ..

If the last four years have taught me anything, it’s that our government and governments around the world are increasingly using tyrannical tactics to achieve their goals ofincreased control over every aspect of our lives.”

Gates’ goal is to expand access to his digital financial services after testing his systems on people in the lowest-income communities around the globe.

Ultimately, the “digital public infrastructure” will work on a global scale as more nations adopt the system.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation states on its website for its “Inclusive Financial Systems”:

“We are working with our partners to support public and private investment in digital payment infrastructure, new regulatory standards, and gender equality initiatives, such as digitised payments of government benefits, to ensure continued progress toward the promise of financial inclusion.”

“Digital ID systems are one of the three pillars of the so-called digital public infrastructure (DPI); the others are digital payment systems and data exchange systems,” the article continues.

Of course, the EU is also working intensively on introducing the system for its citizens and the growing number of migrants. The WEF, UN and EU want to make digital IDs mandatory by 2030.
