Digital ID/Vaccine Credentials Being Developed

A year ago, we were all free to engage in the activities of everyday life–travel, entertainment, eating out, shopping, working, etc. Now, some say you will have to prove your health status before you can engage in these activities, and they market the whole thing as providing you with a valuable new service….so that you can do all the things you used to do…but you must participate in an experimental mRNA gene therapy in order to regain these privileges. Is this in any way coercive?

This article shows that Seychelles is open for business but only to the vaccinated. My hope is that competition will emerge and that some places will market themselves as open for business to all.
