"The age of digital interdependence"

"Improve Digital Cooperation"
The Digital World Brain...
This means that all people should be connected to the Internet, that liability criteria for discrimination and misleading content should be developed, that artificial intelligence should be regulated, and the establishment of the "Digital Commons" as a global public good. However, the whole thing is more comprehensive than that.
By extension, this
constitutes the construction of a digital World Brain intended to
regulate and control all human life to keep it within the planetary
This builds on the recommendations made in the report The Age of Digital Interdependence (2019) by the UN High Level Panel on Digital Cooperation led by,
...and in collaboration with actors such as the World Economic Forum and their Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. 2
At the "Summit for the Future" in 2023, the UN, together with civil society and the private sector, are expected to agree on shared principles for an,
This includes promoting a "trustworthy Internet" with accountability criteria for discrimination and misleading content as well as regulating Artificial Intelligence to be consistent with "our shared global values".
However, what this means in practice is that,
This very legitimate concern, however, is more about the fact that the UN does not want this technology to fall into the hands of forces that they themselves or their partners do not control.
This is because the whole idea behind the "Global Digital Compact" is to be able to control the world's population and align its values to be in line with the UN's and WEF's interpretations of the 17 Global Goals of Agenda 2030.
A concrete example is the initiative Coalition for Digital Environmental Sustainability (CODES), which was formed after the launching of the UN Roadmap for Digital Cooperation in March 2021 with the aim of promoting "digital sustainability". 3
The coalition currently gathers around 1,000 stakeholders from over 100 countries. 4
Founders of CODES are,
The latter organization has a key role in the agenda and are part of the Global Commons Alliance initiative, which I will return to in the last installment of this series...
CODES works to implement collective system changes and remove any obstacles standing in the way of the total digitization that they believe is needed to implement the sustainability goals (70% of the goals can be achieved through the application of digital solutions according to a study that CODES refers to).
During the environmental conference Stockholm +50 in June 2022, CODES presented its action plan which aims to inform about the priorities included in the Global Digital Compact.
The report describes three system shifts, eighteen strategic priorities and nine "global impact" initiatives that will give rise to the "desired" change. 5
These systems shifts are:
In order to achieve the goals, the establishment of a "World Commission on Sustainability in the Digital Age" is proposed with the aim of conducting research and offering scientifically oriented information on how sustainability should be achieved in the digital era.
Their conclusions, in turn, will form the basis for a global platform (Clearing House for Digital Sustainability Standards) that develops digital and financial sustainability standards.
This knowledge is then to be disseminated through decentralized education programs.
In order to deal with the negative environmental and social effects from energy use, greenhouse gases, material use, consumption, digital divides, violations, and "incorrect information", it is proposed, among other things, that,
The latter is part of the circular economy and will eventually also be used on us humans.
Among the examples of how problems with incorrect information should be handled, Facebook's "Climate Science Center" is highlighted.
As of the Paris Agreement 2015, the science is considered to be settled and no more debate or nuance in this field is to be tolerated.
Instead, "incorrect information" on the web must be corrected and visitors instead provided with the United Nations' "verified" climate information.
The third area concerns the development of digital innovations that promote environmental and social sustainability.
This includes "digital twins" and the construction of a digital copy of the Earth that will be used to monitor and predict the interaction between natural phenomena and human activities.
A kind of digital crystal ball...
The EU project Destination Earth, which is linked to the EU's Green Deal and Digital Strategy, aims to develop a full digital replica of the Earth by 2030. 8
This is very similar to the geocybernetic visions that papal adviser and former head of the Potsdam Institute of Climate Research (PIK), Hans Joachim Schellnhuber proposed in the late 1990s. 9
There are currently 267 initiatives linked to CODES that are working on implementation.
On the website, they write that two-thirds of carbon dioxide emissions are linked to human consumption and that they will,
The citizens, who according to The Green Digital Finance Alliance want immediate change, should be encouraged to make climate-smart choices through a rating system.
Every purchase is registered and assessed according to the climate benefit. 11
In this way, the necessary behavioral changes will be achieved.
One exemple is Swedish Doconomy:
The Green Digital Finance Alliance's founders are UNEP and the ANT Group which developed the Chinese social credit system.
The latter is represented on the executive board by Jason Pau, chairman of the Jack Ma Foundation, while ANT Group CEO Eric Jing sits on the advisory board. 13
Besides being a board member of WEF's Young Global Leaders, Jing is also part of the United Nations Task Force on Digital Financing of the Sustainable Development Goals. 14
The Finance for Biodiversity Initiative is in turn founded and financed by the Swiss MAVA Foundation under the leadership of the pharmaceutical giant Roche's vice-chairman André Hoffman, board member of the World Economic Forum and member of their Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. 15
As a senior adviser to the elite British think tank Royal Institute of International Affairs, he is as close to global power as it gets. 17
As usual, WEF's spirit and solutions are closely intertwined with the UN agenda.
The billionaire Hoffman, who increased the family fortune by 38 billion dollars during the 'pandemic', describes himself as an environmentalist and was in the years 2007-2017 WWF's vice chairman.
He is also a member of the Club of Rome, board member of the Global Footprint Network (which calculates when "Earth Overshoot Day" occurs) and received this year's "David Rockefeller Bridging Leadership Award" from David's daughter Peggy Dulany for his leadership in sustainable business and climate change. 16
In the acceptance speech, where he talks about the need of a new accountability system, he ends with a story that reveals an old elitist view about humanity:
With the Global Footprint Networks calculator
you can calculate your "global footprint"
by clicking on the image.
The Finance for Biodiversity Initiative also includes the organization Bankers Without Boundaries, whose name in an almost comical way describes what this is all about.
Financial parasites and predators who respect no borders and who use ordinary people's concern for the environment and health and a feigned concern for human rights, women, and minority groups as leverage to impose their technocratic dictatorship. 18
We can also be absolutely sure that the bankers and billionaires will not be included in any social credit system where their own climate footprint is analyzed and punished for exceeding the planetary limits.
In this context, an old Bible quote fits:
Beware of false
