But why? They wouldn't want to shut off the Internet, which is their single greatest tool for spreading propaganda. And not to mention that in this day and age, shutting off the internet shuts off society. It means freezing the vast majority of the economy since neither people nor stores can't connect with the banking system and only cash would work as payment.Supposedly, the Cyber Polygon cyber-pandemic that Klaus Schwab spoke about last July is allegedly going to happen sometime this summer or fall (between July and September).
Much like how "Event 201" predicted Covid-19 before it happened, Cyber Polygon 2020 predictively programmed a coming supply-chain cyberattack similar to the SolarWinds attack that occurred earlier this year. It's being speculated that this "cyber pandemic" will (allegedly) wipe out everyone's savings accounts and they want to shut off the internet and only allow people back on it if they can trace them via a digital ID. Other people are suggesting they would leak everyone's personal information such as search histories, social media private messages, and things like that. It's also being recommended to back up all your data on an external hard drive or flash drives as this could effect just about every system in the world. Not saying I know for certain what this would entail but, that's what I've been seeing speculated upon.
Everyone's records and digital IDs are already harvested by these corporations so I'm not convinced this data is worth much more than it already is. I guarantee that if Big Tech felt like it, they could compile a scary accurate profile about me using my IPs and search history and leak it to the public. That's my "digital ID". Right now it's a waste of time to make algorithms sort through all that data, but in the future they'll easily be able to (it will be used to sell you products and blackmail people they don't like). The reason this isn't done now is because boomers they hate Trump don't have a large internet presence and younger people they hate like Kyle Rittenhouse or Derek Chauvin can be smeared in the media and society with more conventional methods.
As for digital IDs following you around everywhere, most webmasters, even SJW ones, would probably just tell them to fuck off meaning all it would be is that you have to use your real name on shitty sites like Twitter you shouldn't be using anyway.
