Authored by 'NAMCIOS' via BitcoinMagazine.com,

Ukraine’s central bank is prohibiting bitcoin buys with the hryvnia in an attempt to prevent what it calls “unproductive” capital outflows.

  • The Ukrainian central bank has banned bitcoin purchases with the national fiat currency.

  • The bank said the move seeks to prevent “unproductive” capital outflows in a bid to preserve the health of the country’s FX market.

  • In addition to cryptocurrency buys, the new rules also target electronic wallet deposits, FX transactions and travel payments....[ARTICLE ontinues]

Governments Worldwide are Working in Lockstep to bring in Digital I.D. & Social Credit System as EU agrees to Expand Online Censorship with ‘Digital Services Act’

EXCERPTS

Under pressure applied by both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, the European Union is working to expand online censorship to an extreme Orwellian level, as well as strictly regulate speech during what authorities deem to be times of crisis (we always seem to be in the middle of a “crisis”), and remove online anonymity by forcing the public to have a digital identity...

...Governments worldwide are working in lockstep to bring in a digital identity and social credit system right under your nose.

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama both lobbied for the EU to back the censorship bill known as the ‘Digital Services Act‘ on Thursday, April 21st, 2022:  [VIDEOs]

...   ...The law calls for plans to restrict free speech on the internet during times of “crisis.”...

The DSA also pushes for a “public electronic identity (eID),” which Politico previously described as a “National ID card” on your phone that has its origins in vaccine passports and “Digital COVID Certificates.”

image-376.png?resize=639%2C546&ssl=1

Though the eID is sold under the guise of protecting people’s privacy, “digital rights activists … worry the proposal could allow the private sector to better access people’s government-certified information, thereby actually strengthening the likes of Facebook and Google and the targeted advertising industry,” Politico reported.

Working in Lockstep

The UK government is also pushing ahead with its nationwide digital ID plans, despite half of the responses to its public consultation on digital identity opposing the idea.

On April 6, 2022, new digital identity document verification technology (IDVT) that enables data sharing between public bodies and businesses for the purpose of identity verification was introduced. It has been made available to UK employers, landlords, and letting agents who can use it to digitally carry out pre-employment criminal record checks, right to work checks, and right to rent checks....

May 6th - From the well-known researcher Kit Knightly

REPORT: “90% of nations planning Central Bank Digital Currency “

'Digital Dystopia' Looms: 90% Of Nations Are Planning CBDCs

Tyler Durden's Photo
by Tyler Durden
Monday, May 09, 2022 - 02:30 AM

Authored by Kit Knightly via Off-Guardian.org,

A new report from the Bank of International Settlements estimates that up to 90% of national central banks are at least in the planning stages for launching a central bank digital currency (CBDC):

Nine out of 10 central banks are exploring central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), and more than half are now developing them or running concrete experiments. In particular, work on retail CBDCs has moved to more advanced stages

This echoes a March report from the IMF, which claimed over one hundred nations are at least in the planning stages of releasing their own CBDC.

You can read the entire IMF report here, or a summary published by Bloomberg here.

adobe-stock-digital-globe-world-earth-co

It seems programs of government-issued digital money have been gaining momentum all around the world since at least 2020, and apparently, now they exist in over half the countries on the planet.

The newest of these – Brazil and Namibia – announced their plans only last month.

As with all globalist agendas, the push for CBDCs is always part of “the current thing”.

First, it was a response to Covid. Then they could help us halt climate change. Then they’re a response to the war in Ukraine.

Using that method they have moved from a barely-discussed fringe idea to regular mainstream coverage and 90% of the world trying them out, all within the space of a couple of years (as we predicted they would in our New Years post)

Interestingly, while CBDCs are being talked about more and more, there is one specific feature of them which is being talked about less and less: Programmability.

Regular readers will be more than familiar with this concept – we discussed it in detail in our previous articles on CBDCS (here and here).

For those new readers: programmability is a hypothetical feature of digital currency which would allow the issuer to set limits and controls over its use.

Essentially, any CBDC would give either the state, the central bank or the corporation issuing the money as wages the power to control how and where the money is spent.

Any CBDC amounts to potential third-party control of your money.

It’s that simple.

This has massive implications for the very idea of individual liberty. Given how the last two years have gone, it’s not at all hard to imagine how such a system could be abused.

YouAreHereBarcode.jpg?itok=VWqNJRBO

Halting payments to “protect the NHS”, garnishing wages to “fight climate change” or individual financial sanctions because you aren’t vaccinated.

One need look no further back than the Canadian truckers’ protest to see a state financially unpersoning those who express dissent. A CBDC would make that process both easier for the state to enforce and harder for an individual to avoid.

It is, quite obviously, the biggest ethical and societal issue in any potential system of digital currency.

And yet, neither the BIS report nor the IMF report nor Bloomberg’s summary discusses the idea of “programmability” in any detail at all.  The word is used precisely once across all three documents, and they never explain what it actually means

OffG has covered CBDCs in detail before, and the press has never been shy in talking up the “benefits” of such strictly controlled money in the past. On the contrary, it has always been treated as a major selling point.

Agustin Carstens, the head of the Bank of International Settlements discussed the idea in detail in a video in the summer of 2021:

The key difference [with a CBDC] is that the central bank would have absolute control on the rules and regulations that will determine the use of that expression of central bank liability, and then have the technology to enforce that.”

WATCH SHORT VIDEO

A Telegraph article from June 2021 again raved about the possible benefits of programmable currency:

Digital cash could be programmed to ensure it is only spent on essentials, or goods which an employer or Government deems to be sensible […] There could be some socially beneficial outcomes from that, preventing activity which is seen to be socially harmful in some way.

They were never reluctant to talk up programmability before, so it’s noteworthy they should suddenly shut down that avenue of discussion.

Perhaps a sign they over-estimated what people would accept, and are already experiencing more pushback on the idea than they expected.

That’s a comforting thought.

But don’t be fooled: Just because they stop mentioning it, doesn’t mean they’re letting it go. They just want you to forget about it.

Oh, and just in case you were wondering, the list of countries trialling digital currencies includes Ukraine and Russia, the United States and China, Britain and the EU.

Every team in the league.

Picking a side won’t save you.

Russia fast-tracks CBDC: Digital ruble to be used in "real operations" in 2023

The introduction of a trackable digital currency has been prioritized due to sanctions

https://www.activistpost.com/2022/05/russia-fast-tracks-cbdc-digital-ruble-to-be-used-in-real-operations-in-2023.html

https://off-guardian.org/2022/05/27/russia-fast-tracks-cbdc-digital-ruble-to-be-used-in-real-operations-in-2023/

russia-cbdc.jpg

“The digital ruble will also ensure the transparency of the terms of payment services, since it will allow tracking the targeted spending of funds by citizens, representatives of Promsvyazbank, Sberbank and Russian Standard Bank note.”

Citing the imposition of western sanctions, the Bank of Russia announced on Wednesday that it was accelerating the rollout of its Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC). The first stage of testing for the digital ruble began in January and was originally supposed to finish in 2024. Under the newly released roadmap, phase two—in which the programmable, trackable digital token will be integrated, small-scale, into “real money” operations—is now slated to start in April 2023. Vedomosti (Russia’s Wall Street Journal) has the details:

“Seeing the pace at which we are now going, we assume that from April next year we will be able to start a pilot on real clients and real operations,” said First Deputy Chairman of the Central Bank Olga Skorobogatova at a meeting of the regulator with bankers. […]

At the end of this year, the regulator will send documents on regulating the digital ruble to the State Duma Committee on the Financial Market in order to be able to launch the second stage of piloting in April 2023, Skorobogatova said.

The creation of a prototype of the digital ruble platform was completed in December 2021. 12 banks are participating in the first pilot: Ak Bars, Alfa-bank , Dom.RF , VTB , Gazprombank , Tinkoff Bank , Promsvyazbank (PSB), Rosbank , Sberbank , SKB-bank , Soyuz and TKB. Testing of the digital ruble platform began in January 2022, and at the first stage, the issuance of a digital ruble, the opening of digital wallets by banks and citizens, as well as C2C transfers (between individuals) and C2B transfers (from individuals to business - payment by individuals for goods and services). Already on February 15, PSB and VTB were the first to successfully transfer digital rubles between their clients. On February 18, the head of the Central Bank, Elvira Nabiullina, reported that five credit institutions are now testing the system, and the rest will connect as they fine-tune their IT structures. […]

For Q2 2023, the regulator also plans to develop protocols for the interoperability of the digital ruble with the national digital currencies of other countries, in particular the Eurasian Economic Union and the CIS. The development of such protocols will make it possible to make cross-border payments and open a second communication channel between banks, in addition to the Central Bank's Financial Message Transmission System, and will also make it possible to bypass SWIFT in such operations.

A new financial infrastructure that will be free of western meddling: very cool. But is it cool, really? Again, Vedomosti:

The digital ruble will also ensure the transparency of the terms of payment services, since it will allow tracking the targeted spending of funds by citizens, representatives of Promsvyazbank, Sberbank and Russian Standard Bank note. […]

Blockchain consultant and cryptocurrency researcher Denis Smirnov is critical of the idea of the Central Bank: “For people, the introduction of the digital ruble is the realization of the most terrible scenarios described by science fiction writers in dystopias.” According to the expert, with the advent of the digital ruble, absolute transparency will reign in the field of personal finance, which means that the human right to privacy will be under attack.

Oh. Okay.

https%3A%2F%2Fbucketeer-e05bbc84-baa3-43 Like the gold-pegged ruble that never existed, only better.

 

In December, your humble Moscow correspondent warned that the Bank of Russia was up to all kinds of trickery. Then, on February 18, we typed up a blog post about how Russia was using the threat of western sanctions as a pretext to accelerate the adoption of the digital ruble.

By the way: undoubtedly, CBDCs will make cross-border transactions more convenient and less of a hassle for Russia (at least when doing business with friendly states).

But does that justify the zero-privacy, total-centralized-control financial system that is being created? An interesting question.

Read more

Russia will adopt CBDCs, citing the need to shield itself from western sanctions. Whatever.

The West will adopt CBDCs, citing the need to crack down on domestic terrorism financing, or Patreon payments to people with unapproved ideas, or whatever. It doesn’t matter.

It won’t matter what the justifications will be. The pretexts will be different, but the system will be exactly the same. And the system is going to suck for everyone.

It’s sort of like Post-Sanctions Russian McDonald’s: it’s literally McDonald’s, but with a different name.

https%3A%2F%2Fbucketeer-e05bbc84-baa3-43 McDisappointed.

It is what it is.

France introduces digital ID days after Macron’s re-election

Just days after winning the federal election, President Emmanuel Macron authorized the creation of a digital ID for France.

FRANCE-DIGITAL-ID-1024x576.png

 

The “Digital ID Guarantee Service” (SGIN) was signed into decree following his victory over Marine Le Pen, which will allow France to be ‘compliant’ with the European Union’s digital ID.

The backlash from the ‘Les Patriots’ group, which seeks independence from the EU, was immediate.

Macron was re-elected 3 days ago. 2 days later the govt goes ahead with the Digital ID and today the Media are announcing the 4th jab for *everyone.* It’s full steam ahead for the Great Reset! But it’s all ok because France defeated the ‘far-right.’
 

“Just after the election, the government announces the launch of ‘a digital identity application’!” said leader Florian Philippot.

“The goal: to put social credit in the Chinese way. Control and surveillance company!” [translated from French]

“Let’s totally reject this app and fight by any means!”

Macron’s election victory has set off massive protests, wherein Macron has been pelted with tomatoes.  [VIDEO]

France’s move towards a centralized digital ID, and the corresponding resistance from people concerned with a Chinese-style social credit system, is a conflict that’s intensifying in many countries throughout the world.

Recently, for example, Nigeria blocked 73 million residents from making phone calls for not linking their cell phones to their national digital ID. 

In Italy, a municipal government just announced it’s rolling out a soft social credit score in the Fall, the first of its kind in Europe.

Domestically, Canada hasn’t issued coercive tactics to this level, and provinces are torn on implementing a digital ID.

While Alberta and Ontario have already rolled theirs out, Saskatchewan recently scrapped its plan to launch one after polling citizens who wanted nothing to do with it.

Instead, the provincial government now says they’ll monitor uptake and feedback from colleagues in other jurisdictions.

“We will be watching very closely to observe how their digital ID programs progress,” a Ministry of SaskBuilds official stated.

Moreover, certain opposition parties and candidates are beginning to voice their concerns against centralized digital ID and currency.

The Ontario Party, led by Derek Sloan, has presented a petition to the Ontario Legislature that proposes a ban on digital IDs.

CPC candidate Pierre Poilievre also recently proposed that he would ban centralized digital currency that the Liberal government snuck in their budget if elected.

https://www.politico.eu/article/eu-europe-digital-id/

The EU has introduced a new ‘digital’ ID. Here’s what it means for you.

The European Commission wants to develop an app that would contain the digital version of your identity card.

The European Commission on Thursday unveiled plans to introduce a bloc-wide digital ID.

If approved, the plan would allow people to use an app to prove their identity online, whether that's to verify their age or to check their driver's license.

The EU plans to start testing the app, which it calls a "wallet," in October 2022, when it hopes it will have the basis of an agreement across member countries.

But how will this wallet actually impact people? And is this the end of your anonymity online?

Why is this a thing?

The Commission says it needs a new identification system because it wants EU residents to retain control of their data, rather than share it with tech giants like Google and Facebook.

"Every time an app or website asks us to create a new digital identity or to easily log on via a big platform, we have no idea what happens to our data in reality," said Commission President Ursula von der Leyen in a speech last September. Instead of using your Facebook profile to log in to other apps, say, the Commission is proposing "a secure European e-identity ... A technology where we can control ourselves what data and how data is used."

The Commission also hopes digital IDs will help to fight online fraud, encourage people to feel safer when using online services and boost the economy. One study from the McKinsey Global Institute claims countries with a digital ID scheme will be able to boost their gross domestic product by 3 to 13 percent by 2030.

Some EU countries have already rolled out their own national digital identities, but they have a mixed record. According to the Commission, 19 eID schemes are used by 14 EU countries, but "take-up is low, their use is cumbersome and business cases are limited."

“All of the EU solutions so far have been in a smaller or bigger way fragmented and therefore, they do not have a major scale,” said MEP Andrus Ansip — a former digital commissioner — who has been pushing for an EU digital ID since his Commission days.

Does this mean I'm going to be a 'citizen of Europe'?

This is not a federalist ploy. You're not about to be provided with a European Digital Identity number, and you will remain a citizen of your own country — and only your country.

The aim is that your phone would essentially host your national ID card, which you would link up to the app.

If you're from one of the 14 EU countries that already has a digital identity system in place, there's no need to re-register or apply for a new digital ID — the proposed app is meant to "build on" those existing systems and allow you to use that digital identity in a wider range of situations.

Not sure I'm into that...

If you're not interested, that's ok. It's not compulsory to get the app.

But EU countries will be required to offer a digital ID system to its residents. Likewise, public and private services will be required to accept the new ID, but they can't make it compulsory for users either.

Thomas Lohninger, vice president at digital rights group EDRi, worries that the Commission hasn't taken into account people who don't want a digital ID, leaving them at a disadvantage if companies or governments start providing incentives for people to use it.

When can I get one, what will it look like and what can I use it for?

If you do want one, you'll have to wait a little while. The EU only plans to start testing the scheme in October next year and has yet to set a firm date for when this would be available for all EU residents.

It's unclear what the apps could look like, and it will be up to each country to decide how to deliver it to its residents. You'll probably be able to get it from standard app stores or government websites, a Commission official told journalists.

You can expect to be able to use the "wallet" to verify your identity with public and private online services within the bloc, including accessing your bank account, submitting tax declarations and renting a car.

Users will also have the right to choose which data they want to share. So if you're going into a nightclub and want to use the app to prove you're of age, you can choose to only share that bit of information on your ID.

The regulation also includes the right to pseudonymous transactions — in other words, no one can connect that embarrassing thing you bought online with your digital identity, even if you used the app in carrying out the transaction.

What's the catch?

Digital rights activists like Lohninger worry the proposal could allow the private sector to better access people's government-certified information, thereby actually strengthening the likes of Facebook and Google and the targeted advertising industry.

He said he has little faith in the EU's data protection rules to make the system secure and doesn't like that countries are responsible for enforcing the proposal: Ireland's data protection authority is responsible for holding the likes of Facebook to account, and has been criticized for not being tough enough on tech giants.

Lohninger does not have faith if it's up to Dublin to take on Big Tech over potential misuse of the new system.

Cyberattacks are on the up. How secure would my data be?

The Commission said it will come up with the rules and standards, with input from EU countries, that will ensure "the highest security levels."

So, more is still to come on how exactly the Commission will ensure these "highest security levels."

Is this vaccine passports 2.0?

If this whole idea sounds vaguely familiar, it's because the Commission's digital vaccine passports — dubbed Digital COVID Certificates — are likely to have paved the way for the EU’s proposal. “This is the impressive side of this pandemic,” one Commission official said, stressing how digital projects got priority in responding to the health crisis.

“It’s a path of no return,” the official added.

Ugandans to Have DNA, Biometric Data Captured in New Electronic National ID Cards

  • General David Muhoozi said the government would phase out the old identification cards once they expire
  • He said the new electronic ID cards would improve the accuracy and credibility of the register for planning and improved service delivery
  • Muhoozi revealed that the registration process would be a source of revenue for the government as Ugandans will have to pay for the new cards

Ugandans are expected to have their DNA properties harvested by the government to be used in the development of new National Identity (ID) cards.

General David Muhoozi, the Minister for Internal Affairs, told the parliamentary plenary late that discussions were underway for the government to issue “smart digital” IDs once the current versions expire.

Muhoozi said the automation of an individual’s information on an ID was to adopt technology and increase speed in verifying people's data whenever needed.

“The government seeks to take advantage of the strides in technology that will increase portability and verification to support global transactions. The exercise will improve accuracy and credibility of the register for planning and improved service delivery,” he said.

Through the National Identification and Registration Authority (NIRA), Uganda began issuing National IDs in 2014, and the first batch expires in 2024. They are valid for only 10 years.

Generate revenue for government

He added that the government would also use the process to generate revenue as citizens will have to pay for IDs.
"The exercise should potentially generate revenue for the government; details of which are also being computed,” he said.
This immediately attracted condemnation, with Deputy Speaker Thomas Tayebwa stating that Ugandans should not be made to pay for the National ID.
Rose Obiga, Terego District Woman MP, argued this would be a tall order since obtaining the current free versions was difficult for thousands of Ugandans.

Deepfakes can fool biometric checks used by banks, research finds

Fraudsters can easily use artificial intelligence to open up fake accounts online.

A team of researchers has found that biometric tests used by banks and cryptocurrency exchanges to verify users’ identities can be fooled by deepfake technology.

In a report published on Wednesday, researchers with Sensity, a security firm focused on deepfake detection, demonstrated how it was able to bypass an automated “liveness test” by using AI-generated faces.

Commonly known as “know your customer” or KYC tests, such verification processes often ask users to provide photographs of their identification as well as their face. A “liveness test” is then used to capture the users’ face in real-time in order to match it to their selfie and identification photo with facial recognition.

KYC verification is utilized in a wide array of industries including banking, fintech, insurance, crypto, and gambling. Sensity tweeted out footage of its demonstration a week before it released its report, detailing how 9 of the top 10 KYC vendors were highly vulnerable to deepfake attacks.

“Despite its widespread adoption, active liveness checks are weak against attacks by Deepfakes,” the report states. “The reason is that real-time Deepfakes can reproduce faithfully facial landmark movements of the attackers.”

Even with such a glaring vulnerability, KYC vendors do not appear concerned about the potential for misuse. In a statement to the Verge, which first covered the report on Wednesday, Francesco Cavalli, Sensity’s chief operating officer, claimed that vulnerable companies did not appear to care.

“We told them ‘look you’re vulnerable to this kind of attack,’ and they said ‘we do not care,’” he said. “We decided to publish it because we think, at a corporate level and in general, the public should be aware of these threats.”

With massive crypto heists becoming common, it seems likely such vulnerabilities will be exploited more and more by cybercriminals as deepfake technology becomes more realistic and easier to use.

No problem to cut off tracking.   First get rid of Microsoft and Apple OS, Amazon and google products. Then block javascript.  Pay by check, use VPN hardware rounter and Hush mail email. 

I am now using Chrome on a Chromebook. My new computer is just as good for a third of the price. I does what I need, is more dependable, and "sandboxed" , so little chance of becoming a "brick". No security software needed. It is smaller, lighter, and runs all day on the battery alone. I could use my solar charger and my phone to run it. I have one small panel.

On our recent trip to Hawaii we were informed that we needed to sign up on a certain website. We did so, even though it required facial recognition input. Hawaii was strict on covid regulations.  When we got to the airport they said they didn't use that site, for some unknown reason! Possibly a CIA or other plot that snared us. We have both been fingerprinted for various licensures several times anyway. We had to go through extra paperwork at the airport. 

I think that most Americans will be facially recorded through DMV and other methods unawares by our government. I do not trust any of our governmental organizations anymore. It is now legal for them to use ANY source to gain our private information. This was signed off by congress in a close vote. Thanks RINOS.

REPORT: “90% of nations planning Central Bank Digital Currency “

'Digital Dystopia' Looms: 90% Of Nations Are Planning CBDCs

Authored by Kit Knightly via Off-Guardian.org,

A new report from the Bank of International Settlements estimates that up to 90% of national central banks are at least in the planning stages for launching a central bank digital currency (CBDC):

Nine out of 10 central banks are exploring central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), and more than half are now developing them or running concrete experiments. In particular, work on retail CBDCs has moved to more advanced stages

This echoes a March report from the IMF, which claimed over one hundred nations are at least in the planning stages of releasing their own CBDC.

You can read the entire IMF report here, or a summary published by Bloomberg here.

It seems programs of government-issued digital money have been gaining momentum all around the world since at least 2020, and apparently, now they exist in over half the countries on the planet.

The newest of these – Brazil and Namibia – announced their plans only last month.

As with all globalist agendas, the push for CBDCs is always part of “the current thing”.

First, it was a response to Covid. Then they could help us halt climate change. Then they’re a response to the war in Ukraine.

Using that method they have moved from a barely-discussed fringe idea to regular mainstream coverage and 90% of the world trying them out, all within the space of a couple of years (as we predicted they would in our New Years post)

Interestingly, while CBDCs are being talked about more and more, there is one specific feature of them which is being talked about less and less: Programmability.

Regular readers will be more than familiar with this concept – we discussed it in detail in our previous articles on CBDCS (here and here).

For those new readers: programmability is a hypothetical feature of digital currency which would allow the issuer to set limits and controls over its use.

Essentially, any CBDC would give either the state, the central bank or the corporation issuing the money as wages the power to control how and where the money is spent.

Any CBDC amounts to potential third-party control of your money.

It’s that simple.

This has massive implications for the very idea of individual liberty. Given how the last two years have gone, it’s not at all hard to imagine how such a system could be abused.

YouAreHereBarcode.jpg?itok=VWqNJRBO

Halting payments to “protect the NHS”, garnishing wages to “fight climate change” or individual financial sanctions because you aren’t vaccinated.

One need look no further back than the Canadian truckers’ protest to see a state financially unpersoning those who express dissent. A CBDC would make that process both easier for the state to enforce and harder for an individual to avoid.

It is, quite obviously, the biggest ethical and societal issue in any potential system of digital currency.

And yet, neither the BIS report nor the IMF report nor Bloomberg’s summary discusses the idea of “programmability” in any detail at all.  The word is used precisely once across all three documents, and they never explain what it actually means

OffG has covered CBDCs in detail before, and the press has never been shy in talking up the “benefits” of such strictly controlled money in the past. On the contrary, it has always been treated as a major selling point.

Agustin Carstens, the head of the Bank of International Settlements discussed the idea in detail in a video in the summer of 2021:

The key difference [with a CBDC] is that the central bank would have absolute control on the rules and regulations that will determine the use of that expression of central bank liability, and then have the technology to enforce that.”

WATCH SHORT VIDEO

A Telegraph article from June 2021 again raved about the possible benefits of programmable currency:

Digital cash could be programmed to ensure it is only spent on essentials, or goods which an employer or Government deems to be sensible […] There could be some socially beneficial outcomes from that, preventing activity which is seen to be socially harmful in some way.

They were never reluctant to talk up programmability before, so it’s noteworthy they should suddenly shut down that avenue of discussion.

Perhaps a sign they over-estimated what people would accept, and are already experiencing more pushback on the idea than they expected.

That’s a comforting thought.

But don’t be fooled: Just because they stop mentioning it, doesn’t mean they’re letting it go. They just want you to forget about it.

Oh, and just in case you were wondering, the list of countries trialling digital currencies includes Ukraine and Russia, the United States and China, Britain and the EU.

Every team in the league.

Picking a side won’t save you.

That is fascism at work. Call it what you may.
