The latest anti-Chinese lockdown narrative is obscuring a much broader effort by the financial and tech sector to create state-backed digital currency that will turn humanity into data assets.
Today we’re joined by Raul Diego, a MintPress staff writer, filmmaker and photojournalist who will discuss the anti-Chinese lockdown propaganda and how the COVID economic disaster is paving the way for surveillance, digital currency and human capital markets based on a series of articles he wrote for MintPress News.
A recent letter addressed to the FBI, entitled “The Chinese Communist Party’s Global Lockdown Fraud,” has been gaining considerable traction. The letter — signed by a number of prominent individuals, including military commanders and government advisers — essentially suggests that China, and Xi Jinping in particular, tricked the world into pursuing authoritarian responses to the pandemic.
However, the anti-Chinese lockdown narrative is obscuring a much broader effort by the financial and tech sector to create state-backed digital currency that will turn humanity into data assets. The world’s most powerful hedge funds and transnational corporations can use this data to create more profits for themselves and their clients, while rendering the poor poorer.
