NUTS: WashPost Op-Ed Wants ‘Immunity Passports’ Before Opening Economy

December 28th, 2020 9:29 AM

People need “immunity passports” if they want the economy reopened.  At least, that’s the crazy idea The Washington Post decided to push.

The Post published an insane op-ed advocating for this proposal by Vital Strategies Director of Public Health Law Aaron Schwid and Resolve to Save Lives CEO Tom Frieden.

The two authors argued that “as more and more people are vaccinated, it’s time to carefully design a system of ‘immunity passports.’” As the op-ed stated, “These passports would serve as a form of proof of immunity, allowing people who have immunity to engage in some activities others cannot.” A Big Government tracking system that is necessary to shop or travel. I think we all read about that somewhere. 

The authors were giddy that “immunity passports” were already being developed:

Immunity passports for covid-19 — although controversial for scientific, practical and ethical reasons — are already being developed. We need minimum standards to get this right.

They spewed that “we need practical and universal standards to verify who has been vaccinated.” The United States, said Schwid and Frieden, “currently uses a paper-based system (upon receiving the vaccine, people receive a coronavirus vaccination record card with basic information on it) with few security features that could serve as a trustworthy, official certificate.” Oh, but “[n]othing prevents these documents from being lost or stolen, and the opportunities for and consequences of fraud are high.” [Emphasis added.]

Not to fear, said Schwid and Frieden. One option is for citizens to just go "digital" to solve these "security" problems: “Technology can solve some of these issues. Recipients can opt for a digital certificate in some jurisdictions, but this creates its own challenges.” The authors said “[t]he personal data collected raise privacy and security concerns, and the potential for misuse of data could dissuade some people from getting vaccinated.” No, really?

It’s a wonder if microchipping people is part of the authors’ “technology” option.

The op-ed concluded on a chilling note that would make George Orwell cringe from his grave:

As vaccination is rolled out and we learn more about immunity after natural infection, providing the option of an immunity passport to those who choose to receive one can increase freedom of movement for passport holders and accelerate broader social and economic recovery. As universal vaccination becomes available, passports will help everyone, not just the lucky few, move from fear to freedom, [emphasis added.]

Make it stop.
