Update on Bloomberg "Papers Please" Post

Vaccine "passport"?  Not even close.  This morning we mentioned Bloomberg's involvement in the "Papers Please" project now underway in New York State and which will be pushed out through HHS.

Naomi Wolfe, an uber-Lefty former Gore staffer, had a few thoughts on this, too.  You can read the whole thing at this link (AOSHQ) but here's the part that ......well..........

...5/ Lastly and as the granddaughter of a woman who lost brothers and sisters to the Holocaust, I don't say this lightly: IBM is producing the NYS version. IBM's German subsidiary in Nazi Germany built the forerunner of a digitized system like this, using punch cards, that...

6/ first did exactly what 'Vaccine Passport' proposes -- it separated Nazi Germany into a two tier society, Jew and Aryan, using the technology of the day. Then IBM created the mechanized lists that allowed Jews to be rounded up swiftly, efficiently. Exactly same system, updated.

8/ But before that, Nazis created exactly what 'Vaccine Passports' explicitly promise: separation of society into two tiers: the 'clean' (privileged, with access) and 'unclean' (restricted, stigmatized, marginalized). There is no going back once this platform unrolls; no escape....

I repeat:  it is the Ultimate Irony that Michael Bloomberg is pushing this.

And Ace makes another excellent point:  this will not be a Government program, exactly; it will be a "private sector" program which Government will facilitate through law and/or regulation

If you think it will be limited to "Yes/No" on vaccines, you are truly dumb and should never be allowed to vote.
