A Social Credit System Aimed at Modifying Climate Change Behaviors is Being Deployed in Italy.

Italy will become the first European nation to implement a social credit system – where citizens will be rewarded for their “good behavior”. Starting in the fall of 2022, the city of Bologna will begin a new pilot project. Citizens who display good behavior such as correctly recycling or using public transportation will be rewarded. The Bologna municipality is deploying a “Smart Citizen Wallet” which will be the primary method for citizens to collect digital coins in exchange for behavioral changes. Based on the given scores, a person can also receive discounts for local shops. The primary argument for this

Oppressive COVID Measures for the Unvaccinated Were Based on ‘Software’ Error, Claims German Minister.

The “pandemic of the unvaccinated” was caused by a computer glitch. That was the conclusion of the Health Minister of Germany Karl Lauterbach, after months of vilifying the unvaccinated in the nation’s second largest city, Hamburg. In November 2021, news outlets reported on the increasing “incident numbers” in the city – where the figure grew from 111.6 infected people per 100,000 to 160 per 100,000 in a span of few of days. By the end of November, that number shot up from 209.2 to a record of 223.3. The ostensibly drastic increases have been used to legitimize new COVID policy

China Penalizes Alibaba for Not Colluding on Major Cyber Security Vulnerability.

In starkly reminiscent behavior of the early COVID-19 cover-up attempt, the Chinese Communist Party has slammed one of its own nation’s leading companies, Alibaba, for reporting a highly threatening software vulnerability to the world. The latest computer vulnerability known as “Log4Shell” has caused havoc in the world of cyber security over the past few weeks, being described as one of the most severe threats in recent years. The vulnerability – first discovered by Chinese firm Alibaba’s security researcher on November 24th – allows hackers to gain access to the affected servers or devices and control them remotely. The piece of

Governments Want Crackdown on Telegram App Used to Organize Anti-COVID Lockdown Protests.

In the past few days, German politicians have declared messaging app Telegram a threat to democracy and a hotbed of radicalization. The latest round of attacks on free communication comes after weeks of protests in Germany against the COVID-19 measures. Protests have been mobilized via Telegram and other online community platforms. Since the beginning of December, the debate about the Telegram app has raged across the German media. Concurrent to the protests news stories – such as from the Tagesschau and Deutsche Welle – framed the platform as a hub for dangerous conspiracies, vaccine misinformation, and the driving force behind

Protests Intensify Across Europe as Amidst Forced Vaccination Plans.

This weekend, tens of thousands of European citizens protested against government-enforced COVID-19 restrictions, the so-called “Green Pass,” and mandatory vaccination policies. The measures are now conditions for participating in social life, work, and education in a number of European nations. Austrian citizens have seen some of the most totalitarian measures in the world, with the government announcing mandatory vaccinations. Citizens have until February to voluntarily get the injections. If they fail to comply, they will be fined around $700 USD every three months. Austria has also been in another 20-day unvaccinated lockdown which concludes after December 13th. At the same

After a Murder Over Mask-Wearing, Authorities Are Cracking Down on COVID Skeptics on Telegram.

After a gas station cashier was killed following an argument over mask wearing, the German government started pressuring social media platforms to censor groups over what has become known as “corona misinformation.” The State of Thüringen’s Interior Minister George Mair specifically called for the urgent regulation and classification of Telegram as a social network in order to foist new rules on the platform. Currently the “Netzwerdurchsetzungsgesetz” law in Germany requires social media platforms to delete whatever the government deems as “criminal” content, and even to report them to the Federal Criminal Policy Agency (Bundeskriminalamt). Platforms such as Telegram, however, have

WHO Issues Guidance on Digital COVID Certificates Called ‘Conspiracy Theory’ by Media.

A newly published World Health Organization (WHO) report urges the transition to digital certification of vaccine status, presenting implementation strategies for member states. The report is labeled as “interim guidance” which should serve countries help in their fight against COVID-19 and “to capture vaccination status to protect against other diseases”. The central premise appears to be the implementation of Digital Documentation of COVID-19 Certificates (DDCC) which will act as an agent to present and review vaccination status, history of SARS CoV-2 infection and test results. The report acts as a technical guidance, in regard to infrastructure, digital verification processes, and

COVID-Tracker App Installs Itself Without User Consent, Including on Parental-Locked Devices.

Massachusetts state officials recently announced the launch of the “voluntary” MassNotify app, which monitors the spread of COVID-19 in the state. The only problem is the app appears to be installing itself on residents’ and their kids’ smartphones, unbeknownst to users, and without their consent. The news creates a disturbing new dimension to privacy laws and even private property concerns as hundreds of users have reported their Android phones have had the app surreptitiously installed, without their prior knowledge. “Thank you MA/Google for silently installing #MassNotify on my phone without consent. But I have a request: Can you also silently
