KTDI is a “surveillance-by-design” vision for tracking and control of travelers more dystopian than anything we have seen before.
KTDI would use a blockchain-based distributed ledger to bind together, through an app on a traveler’s mobile device, all of the following data:
- Biometrics (initially facial images, possibly also fingerprints, etc.)
- Government-issued ID credentials (passport number, etc.)
- Travel history including logs of border crossings, hotel stays, and possibly also car rentals and/or other events
- Purchase logs and possibly bank account information and/or other financial and transaction records
- Pre-crime predictive “risk assessment” and profiling scores generated at each “intervention” point before and during each trip or transaction
Each hotel stay, purchase, or other transaction would become like a border crossing permanently stamped in your passport as part of a digital “trip pass” subject to inspection on demand by authorities at subsequent “intervention” points:
All of this data is intended to be used to discriminate between travelers whose ID-linked pre-crime profiles are scored as “high risk” or “low risk” …
Funny how all this terribly protective fatherland security apparatus wasn’t needed until our “protectors” staged the 9/11 terror attack. 9/11’s authors are surely in the “high risk” category, yet they fly freely around the globe attending confabs like the WEF with no screening at all. What are they carrying in their luggage? Vials of smallpox?
I can’t emphasize enough: purported “peace activists” who refuse to face such realities are controlled opposition. They might as well be on the CIA payroll and I’m sure some of them are.
