Japan Issues “My Number” A National ID Card That Links Bank And Vaccine Records To Government Database

Thomas Dishaw

Japan is considering requiring it’s citizens to obtain mandatory personal ID’s by year 2021The proposed ID will  link individuals  bank account information and  personal health records to a centralized government database. Government officials contend that the personal ID is necessary to track vaccinations and monitor financial transactions with the ultimate goal of ensuring medical compliance and elimination of tax fraud. According to Japanese officials, participation in the program, named “My Number,” is  completely voluntary.  

The ID card, which is essentially a bank card, also doubles as a  12 digit tracking system complete with RFD chip, which will store  personal information like DOB, address, race, gender, health records, and most likely–political affiliation.

Reader, I don’t know what you think about this, but it sounds to me like the Japanese are launching something the USA has been attempting to pull-off for years. It doesn’t matter what they name it, or how they try to justify it, the National ID card they are proposing is simply a big fat “Big Brother” tracking system designed to  spy-on people. Plain and simple……

And it gets worse.In an attempt to facilitate the launch of the new ID system,  Japan’s governing  body, ” The Diet”,  recently ruled that it’s citizens have “no right to their own personal data.” Existing laws protecting private information have been amended, giving companies the right to utilize personal data obtained in business transactions. reports the Japan Times.

The good news is that not everyone in Japan is on board. As one would expect, many Japanese citizens mightily oppose this proposal, citing that allowing Government access to one’s personal medical information, buying habits and political proclivities will inevitably lead to data breaches and misuse of personal information. Unfortunately, I suspect that this dissent, justified and rational as it is, will only serve to be a temporary stop-gap to an almost inevitable conclusion in these last days.

On a more peculiar  note, The Finance Ministry of Japan has also branded” My Number” as “a rewards card, where you can get up to 2% cash back and earn points for all your purchases!” Japan Times report  Imagine that, a surveillance system that gives back!

It is obvious to me that “My Number” is an ominous precursor of what is to come. On the face of it, it is a tracking system designed to ensure social and economic compliance, but to the educated reader it is much, much more. Could it be that the real purpose of the ID card is to control access to commerce? I wonder how long it will be before everyone, not just the folks in Japan, will be forced to link-up to an ID card, an RFD chip, or a 12 digit number in order to buy and sell.

Finally, leave it to Japan, best know for  Sushi, Sumo wrestlers, and Samurai, to quietly usher in the most complete tracking system on the planet since Facebook. Perhaps America can lay claim to a “close second” with the establishment of the NSA, but sadly, the NSA doesn’t issue ID cards, press releases, or offer 2% cash back!  They simply monitor everything we do in real-time and then deny they are spying on us.

  1. WTF is going on in this world??? This is fing madness!! We are on a bullet train to communism! This sh#t cannot be allowed to continue.

  2. This kind of thing is already going on here, folks. For example, many health insurance plans offered through one’s employer make use of incentives (carrots as well as sticks) to shape employee behavior and compliance, through wellness programs. Employees may obtain wellness points through compliance with a list of “voluntary” behaviors such as participation in a weight-loss program, with rewards for pounds lost, obtaining a wellness check up complete with screening tests for blood pressure, cholesterol, flu shots, and other recommended tests. If anything is found amiss, then you are given a certain amount of time to, say, bring your cholesterol or blood pressure in line with what they deem to be correct (in order to continue to receive the rewards). After time, the incentives (rewards) turn into “discounts” on your health insurance premium, or even a raising of rates for those who decline to participate in the voluntary wellness programs. Compliance or non-compliance is tracked through the electronic records system. They are just testing the waters, like the grocery rewards programs that are voluntary to obtain sale prices in exchange for tracking your purchases.

    Who owns you?
