According to Sustainable Development Goal SDG 16 of the U.N. Agenda 2030 we’re going to need a digital identity. This high-minded goal doesn’t tell us that, it simply describes itself as:
“The promotion of peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, the provision of access to justice for all, and building effective, accountable institutions at all levels.”
The devil is in the details. Drilling down a level to target 16.9, the goal is “By 2030 to provide legal identity for all, including birth registration.”
The World Bank states that birth registration alone is not enough. Health treatments need to be tracked, including vaccinations. It will be needed for banks and households where there’s “more than one family.”

The World Bank argues that SDG16.9 is “key to attainment of many other SDG goals.”
So the U.N., Microsoft, the Rockefeller Foundation and a host of other stakeholders came up with ID2020, a program aimed at giving every human on the planet a digital ID, like a fingerprint, in order to keep everyone connected.
When I first mentioned ID2020 in my post ID2020, the Global Digital ID I didn’t know it was part of U.N. Agenda 2030.
I should have realised from the weird conference room the stakeholders were meeting in. I later learned it was a United Nations Council chamber.
On May 18th, 2018 the World Bank Group and the United Nations signed a Strategic Partnership Framework (SPF), which consolidates their joint commitment to cooperate in helping countries implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Microsoft have positioned themselves to spearhead the ID2020 initiative. The initiative helmed by Bill Gates is aimed at “getting Digital IDs right.”
“As companies are only now defining what a proper, official online ID looks like, ID2020 seeks to help define what a “good” digital ID is. Gates and the Board of the Alliance have a “Certification Mark” that they award to companies and technologies that meet the criteria of being “good” digital ID tech.
WHAT’S THE CONNECTION TO VACCINATIONS?
The idea behind some of ID2020’s more controversial technologies is a digital ID that can be implanted into someone in chip form. Ostensibly, this is to help homeless people or people in developing countries by giving them access to blockchain-powered identification.
In theory, the practice would have people receiving free vaccinations through the Bill Gates foundation if they have an ID chip implant. In turn, these implants would carry encrypted, blockchain-backed data that allow for easy access to services you can’t normally get without an ID.
It could also help social workers and researchers keep up with who is up-to-date on their vaccinations.”
The Microsoft Certification Mark
Governments, NGO’s and charities have been beavering away on technology projects in order to get their Microsoft Certification Mark.
I was wondering why the Red Cross had disbursed only a third of the donated funds to the victims of the Australian bushfires. Those expensive Agenda 2030 goals and technology projects will no doubt be costing a lot of money and the public would never donate for a thing like this. I’ll put the links to the Red Cross at the bottom of the page.
The reason I’m picking on them is because the Red Cross has been in the news about the Australian Bush fire donations and I notice they’ve adopted the green-tape of Agenda 2030 in their practices.
The 169 Sustainable Development Targets
The devil really is in these targets, which you can find here and drill down on by clicking on each of the 17 goals. Why 169, I wondered?
169 = 13 x 13.
Revelation 13 describes the mark of the beast and the deceiver who forces it on the world. Will we be the generation to contend with the mark we’ve been warned about in the Bible?
Here’s another unwelcome thought: will the mark alter our DNA? We’re on the cusp of another technological revolution so I believe it’s possible. I’m mentioning it so we can be aware of it.
“The emergence of this Frankenstein technology is paralleled by a shrill push to mandate vaccines, across the board, for both children and adults. The pressure and propaganda are planet-wide.”

Finally, I believe this will lead to a totalitarian state. If we refuse the ID, we won’t get access to any services.
The Sustainable Development Goals, Identity, and Privacy: Does their implementation risk human rights?
While birth registration is the only form of identification specifically mentioned in SDG 16.9, in the initiatives that have emerged from the goal seem to have barely considered it. Rather, they are concerned about other technologies: the likes of national ID cards, biometrics, and more exotic and untested technologies like blockchain.
“Identity” is an important part of all our lives and having the ability to prove who we are is empowering. Having control over our identity can help not only achieve the necessities of life, but also more fundamental concerns of dignity and autonomy. Implementing SDG 16.9 could be done in a way that does not risk this. Yet, if the push is towards greater implementation of some centralised, unique, insecure, one-size-fits-all identity systems which fail to consider the individual, their needs and rights, it can prove to be the opposite.
ID systems can lead to surveillance, tracking and profiling by states and private companies; they can exclude rather than include; they can limit opportunities and become a tool for control and repression. Without proper consideration, SDG 16.9 could lead to a move against not only the broader Goal 16 for peaceful and sustainable societies, but also be damaging for human rights, and ultimately harm the very people it was intended to help.
