Since January 1, the Law “On the Unified State Demographic Register and documents confirming the citizenship of Ukraine, proving identity or its social status”, which is called by the people “the law on biometric passports”, came into force. It provides for the introduction of a new sample document - with an electronic chip that should be updated every 10 years.
What is the essence of this innovation and why are believers so irreconcilable against biopassports?
WHAT DANGER DOES A LAW ENTRY INTO FORCE?
The following theses have not yet succeeded in refuting even the leader in the field of promoting the project of biometricization of the population - the Party of Regions deputy Vasiliy Gritsak.
So, the introduction of biometric documents and the integration of all information about the population into a single register, at different stages of the project, can lead to create conditions for the blackmail of citizens of Ukraine, extortion and manipulation.
As you know, information about various aspects of human life will be stored in a single database. Also a database of fingerprints of the population of Ukraine will be created.
The concentration of all power in the hands of the owners of a single registry can lead to establish a dictatorship and violate the rights of citizens.
Also, the danger lies in the establishment of a system of absolute control over the costs of citizens. If you make a mandatory identification of the buyer when performing trading operations, with subsequent centralized accumulation of information about expenses, it will not be difficult to determine the taxable income - it is enough to compare the money spent with the declared income. What today is already being implemented by amending the decision of the Cabinet of Ministers No. 199 of 2002 of the year.
Manipulations with the Law can lead to frauds with property of citizens and the uncontrolled growth of crime in this area, as well - to the growth of black transplant and many other problems.
WHO CAN BE IN THIS INTEREST?
First of all, it is the West. Total control over the population will allow to complete the process of “integration to Europe”, and in fact - the colonization of Ukraine.
Secondly, these are commercial structures specializing in “cutting budgetary funds” that can be used at different stages of project implementation.
The president ordered to issue biometric passports to all Ukrainians this year
IDENTIFICATION AND VERIFICATION
It is worth paying attention to the identification and verification of a person (identification is the definition of a person, verification is the determination of the conformity of a document and a person. - Auth.) What methods can they be implemented in our reality?
The topic of introducing biometric passports was hardly considered in this focus. Although in fact it is here that the answers to many questions are hidden.
Thus, the identification process is a mandatory component of any legally relevant action. A person who is identified as a certain person receives the right to carry out permissible legal actions on behalf of that person. In other words, if person “A” is identified by the system as person “B”, then he can, for example, dispose of the property of person “B”.
The list of abuses according to this scheme is very long. The most graphic example is the fraud with credit cards, which account for abuses in the hundreds of billions of dollars worldwide.
When dealing with credit cards, verification of the owner and card is carried out by code. Correctly typed code identifies the person as the cardholder. Malefactors in hundreds of ways will get such codes, and further, using a fake card and verifying by the obtained code as the account holder, “materialize their disinterested love of money”.
Abuse of biometric passports can have far more serious consequences than stealing money from a credit card. Especially in the context of the global system of automatic human identification. Therefore, verification, or comparison, for compliance with a particular attribute included in a document — with the same indication of a person who presented a document, acquires key importance.
In addition, the system must meet very stringent requirements. Least, Verification and identification must be 100% accurate..The devices servicing the system should be inexpensive to operate.
The duration of the verification should last a few seconds.or even a fraction of a second. Signs entered into the system should be applicable to the entire population of the planet, all social and age groups.. Counterfeit and interference of outsiders in the system should be excluded. In addition, the method of verification and identification of a person must be suitable for use in the financial sector.
One of the possible ways to identify a person according to his biometric characteristics is based on the uniqueness of the set of biometric parameters of a person. But today it is impracticable: the methods under study are either expensive, or do not protect against fakes, or have significant errors in verification, or have other disadvantages. So the most common verification method is fingerprint man - very unreliable because of the ability to easily fake them. Information on how to forge fingerprints on the simplest office equipment can be found on the Internet. To carry out such a fake can anyone.
Verification on digitized face image very expensive, and does not exclude mistakes, if a person’s face undergoes mutilation, changes in facial features as a result of diseases, age-related physiological changes - from the moment of birth to old age, etc.
In Ukraine, these two above-mentioned signs are used as identifiers. However, the same as in Kenya.
And although all biometric identification methods do not meet the above requirements, biometrics are leaping the globe by leaps and bounds.
So the inhabitants of Kenya, in particular - the nomadic Masai tribes were also offered biometric documents. They, unlike Ukraine, are not fighting for a visa-free regime with Europe, but are trying to protect the election campaign from “terrible political fraud” in this way.
There are international ICAO requirements for biometric identification, where in paragraph 9 of Chapter 3 of the 9 application “Simplification of formalities” only one biometric parameter is required - a digitized image of the face, the rest are voluntary. ICAO's requirements are mandatory for all participating countries, and these are all more or less civilized countries, which means that the digitized image of a person’s face, or three-dimensional photo, was chosen as the main identifying feature. But as we have indicated above, this verification method is far from perfect, and is definitely not suitable for implementing it in the whole world.
HOW TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF VERIFICATION OF ALL THE POPULATION OF THE PLANET?
How will the task of verifying the entire population of the planet be solved?
The answer to this puzzling question is in the same ICAO document. In it, as another required parameter, but not a biometric one, we find an item on machine readable information. It can now be seen in the Ukrainian foreign passport at the bottom of the polycarbonate page. This is the bottom line, in which between the characters "<<" is written a numeric identifier of a person, consisting of: the first digit is one digit, then three characters, the country code "UKR", then a few reserved characters, and at the end - the national identification number.
Such a record matches the international standard ISO 11784 / 11785, the structure of the code, or the name of the person for the chip. In this technology, the identifier is a digital identifier known in Ukraine as an TIN. Identification is carried out by this number. In this case, such identification meets all the above requirements.
HOW TO STRONGLY BRING CHIP TO HUMAN?
But what about verification or verification of ownership of a document by a specific person? The first solution to the problem is the implantation of the chip into the human body, which was repeatedly written in the context of using the Verichip implant to identify the individual. But such implantation is not provided for by regulatory documents. Then how tightly bind the chip to a person?
The answer to this question becomes obvious after reading the description of Thomas Heeter's patent, USA No. 5878155 from 2.03.1999 called “The method of verification of human identity in the process of electronic trade transactions”.
According to this patent: “The present invention solves problems inherent in other methods. A unique bar code or unique sign is tattooed with invisible ink on the person. The tattoo can be both temporary and permanent and can be located at any suitable place in the human body, preferably on the forearm. When a person wishes to perform a trade operation, the tattoo should be scanned by the scanner. ”
By other methods it is mentioned here that: “During the Holocaust, the Nazis tattooed the hands of the Jews with a unique identification number ... none of these methods is suitable in practice for the purposes of electronic transactions. First, the public consciousness dictates that any labeling of people should not be noticeable, as was the numbering of the victims of the Holocaust. ”
Although information about the method of applying such a tattoo itself does not contain a patent, but only indicates the use of invisible ink, other resources provide a definition of this method as a method of applying a bar code on a person’s skin using a laser tattoo.
In this case, if a person with a help of some indelible technology to put a number on his forehead, in a manner imperceptible to the human eye, then the problems are solved - both the identification of a person and verification of the card and its owner. After all, if the number printed on a person does not coincide with the number on the card, then no operations can be carried out. It is not technically possible to forge such a style, the accuracy of verification is close to 100%, the cost of operation is a cheap one, the speed of verification is a fraction of seconds. In trade deals, this system has long been worked out.
In such conditions, there is a great danger that during the scanning of a digitized image of a person, a digital name in the form of a bar code will be tattooed on a person's brow. There are all prerequisites for this, a technical possibility, a conditional need, and the voluntary consent of many people.
The passport in Ukraine will be issued with the consent of the person, which will include the procedure for removing biometric data. The outline described in the Thomas Heather patent will be included in this procedure by default.
This assumption is also favored by the fact that the procedure for removing a digitized image of a person is carried out, including for infants. The next “photo” will be taken only upon reaching the 10 age.
The question is, like Who can identify a 5-year-old boy from a baby photo?
In addition, the alternative that is contained in Art. The 16 Act No. 5492 of 20.11.2012 of the year will still oblige everyone to go through the procedure of scanning a three-dimensional image of a person. Although it would be much simpler to give existing paper documents the status of alternative ones, it is incomparably cheaper and does not create any trouble for the state, since the system for issuing and operating them already exists.
But instead, residents of Ukraine were taught in advance to be photographed with the help of government equipment. It is known that everyone who wanted to get a passport was forced to take pictures in OVIRs. It is clear that the mark in question in this article was not plotted, but the formation of public opinion about the security of any procedures with the image of a person took place.
Not without interest, there will be the ancient prophecy of St. Basil the New, in which his pupil Gregory describes the following: “Even so, we must separate the Lord from the cathedral, and behold, the regiment came sly and filthy more than the Ineh, and their eyes were dark and gloomy more than the Ineh, they had the writing on their faces,“ Satan ”, in the arms of the despot, on them is written: "Rejection" ". As can be seen from the above text, cards in hand and mark on the forehead exist simultaneouslywho has a card has both the mark on his forehead, and on the other hand, who has the mark on his forehead - he also has a card in his hands.
Thus, with a great degree of probability, when removing such a biometric parameter as a digitized image of a person’s face, a face will be drawn invisible to the human eye. In machine-readable form, the personal number of the person will be recorded, which in terms of the law No. 5492 of 20.11.2012 is called “the unique number of the entry in the Register.”
Even if the face will not be printed on the person during the face scan, then if due to frauds or fakes of bio-documents people can lose their livelihood. Then drawing the mark on the body or implanting the chip into the body is not unavoidable, it will be dictated by security.
Biometrics is a well-publicized illusion of security and convenience. Convenience is that the object with the chip is easy to manage. If a person agrees to a passport with a chip, then his document will become easily and conveniently identifiable, the person himself is completely manipulated. Therefore, a biometric document is a point of no return., having passed it, it is impossible to return back, further - only the inevitable drawing of the “mark of the beast”, which is eternal destruction.
The piquancy of the situation also lies in the fact that it is impossible to obtain any evidence of the ongoing manipulations with the person during the removal of the digitized image of the face. After drawing the mark to those who carry out the drawing of the outline, there is no need to admit its drawing. And dedicated to all the details of the process, too, will be silent or deny under any pretext.
According to verse 9 chapters xnumx “The revelations of the Apostle and Evangelist John the Theologian” we know that: “whoever worships the beast and his image and accepts the mark on his forehead or on his hand, he will drink the wine of God's wrath, whole wine prepared in the cup of his wrath, and will be tormented in fire and sulfur ... ". In other words, the inscription is an absolute end, death - both in this and in the hereafter.
Therefore, only the manifestation of vigil and sobriety, and non-participation in the affairs of barren darkness, about which the Church warns, is a guarantee of not accepting the mark of the "beast," and of preserving its soul from eternal death.
Everything else is a game, according to the rules of the “beast,” on the territory of the “beast,” which will necessarily end with the “mark of the beast.”
The choice is ours and may the Lord save us from the wrong choice!
ps This article is also relevant for the residents of Russia, since an absolutely similar passport will be introduced on the territory of the Russian Federation on practically the same patterns. And no matter what slogans and statements about the nationality of this innovation we were not reassured, I think attentive people noticed this global trend forcing the creation of this electronic system. Contrary to the presence of other, more pressing problems for the state, common sense and counterarguments of believers. And all under plausible pretexts for the care and general improvement of the life of the common man. But as you know - the road to hell is lined with good intentions. And it seems this time it's not just a quote ...
