Could Australia be incrementally setting up a similar system?

The world is changing at an unprecedented rate. Advancements in technological capabilities and systems have developed to a point where most of the modern world has become highly dependent on digital governing systems for sustainability and functions.
In the following membership piece, we take a look at the rise of a new age technological dystopia, including the history and development of biometrics and biometric technology, monitoring characteristics, the modern digital era in Australia and the rise of China’s ‘Social Credit System’.
Queensland Government officials have announced that facial recognition technology introduced for security during the 2018 Commonwealth Games will remain in place indefinitely, but won’t say what future use they have in mind for the biometric system.
Civil liberty campaigners say the refusal to release plans for the installed software amounts to a ‘disturbing development in mass surveillance’, with privacy advocates concerned about how the technology will be used in conjunction with the new national facial recognition program.
The world is changing, and is changing fast. A group of international business elites with oligarchic origins continue to manipulate society in hopes of transforming the world in to a vision from Orwell’s dystopia – with Australia seemingly positioned as test dummies for numerous aspects of this system.
In the following piece, Ethan Nash explores Australia’s modern place in this unfolding plan, including the rapid expansion of intelligence communities in the last decade, advancements in smart technology used to develop the concepts and systems involved, and the continued suppression of free speech with topics such as vaccinations and political correctness.
Public transport commuters in Queensland will be able ‘to use their faces as a ticket to board trains and buses’ in the near future, after it was announced on Thursday that trials will commence to replace the current ‘Go Card’ digital network with facial recognition technology.
Cubic Corporation, the company initially behind the ‘Go Card’, will trial the use of biometric identification technology to enable passengers to pay their fares in a ‘seamless, efficient way’, with card-operated gates to eventually be replaced by machines which scan an individual’s eyes or the unique pattern of veins in the palm of their hand.
