I don’t know if you saw this but the trend is far from good over in the Mediterranean.

Italy has many things to love, but sadly I think many of us will never experience them.

Italy Announces Rollout of Dystopian Social Credit System; Compliant Citizens Will Be Rewarded For “Good Behaviour” – [your]NEWS

Social credit scores are already in use in various places around the world, but nowhere more than in the communist hell hole that is China. The dystopian measurement acts in a similar fashion to a traditional credit score, however, as the name indicates, one’s score has little to do with their financial prospects or ability to pay off debt on time – social scores are all about your level of compliance to the regime and acceptance of the approved narrative.

For example, if social credit scores were in full effect in the United States and you were to donate money to a company like the National Rifle Association (NRA) or buy stocks in oil – pretty much anything deemed far-right or environmentally damaging by the establishment – your score would take a hit. Too many hits and, you guessed it, there goes your purchasing power and ability.

You can see now the appeal of programmable money to sociopaths. It will allow them total control over our lives. We’d see the elimination of entire ranges of products.

Whatever doesn’t meet any government’s stated requirements will immediately be sanctioned. Just as they are trying to disallow sovereign nations from buying Russian energy and paying in rubles.

So they can and will sanction you from buying that cigar or maybe even that diamond ring for the love of your life. Diamonds may become frivolous and not very ESG friendly. Who knows?

The article goes on to explain more as to how they’re rolling this out.

The program will kick off its pilot starting in the fall of 2022 in the large metropolitan city of Bologna. Citizens who comply with the radical climate change agenda by displaying “good behavior,” such as correctly recycling or using public transportation, will be rewarded with cryptocurrency and discounts to local retailers, according to local newspaper Bologna Today.

Enrollees will be given a “smart citizen wallet” where their rewards can be accessed. The higher one’s score, correlating with good behavioral changes, will allow them access to more benefits.

All of this is enough to drive a man to drink. I’ll have the Jack Daniels, thanks.

In all seriousness though, this social credit system is all tied to the coming CBDCs. And that, my friends, means we’re in for a battle. Why?

Because all these sociopaths in various positions of power actually want this power. But they all have their own idiosyncrasies and desires. And they don’t all align with the NWO and Herr Klaus et al.
