Digital ID Bill 2023 and the Digital ID

Considering the major impact of this bill in our lives, if it gets through, I am putting this up as a post.

The Parliament of Australia website notifies us that a Digital Bill has been referred to the Senate Economics Legislation Committee. Here are the details.

Digital ID Bill 2023 and the Digital ID (Transitional and Consequential Provisions) Bill 2023

On 30 November 2023, the Senate referred the Digital ID Bill 2023 and the Digital ID (Transitional and Consequential Provisions) Bill 2023 to the Senate Economics Legislation Committee for inquiry and report by 28 February 2024.

The closing date for the committee receiving submissions is
19 January 2024.

The procedure for making the submission is in the panel on the right side of the page.

Senator Alex Antic provides us with more information on this bill. In this Twitter/X post, he mentions four things we need to do.

▹ Sign the petition

▹ Share with others

▹ Write the submission

Contact your Federal local MPs and Senators and tell them to say NO to the Digital ID Bill.

This is another petition (for the same purpose) that was launched before Senator Antic’s petition. I am not sure if both petitions can be signed. Alex Antic’s petition has garnered more signatures and as he is a Senator it may have a better chance of getting Senate attention.

Petition from CitizenGO 

Tell the Senate Inquiry: Reject the Digital ID Bill!

Picture this: your most private information, used and abused, not just by the government, but by corporations too. Add to that the potential for your every move to be monitored and controlled. Scary, isn’t it?

The Albanese Labor Government has just lobbed a dystopian grenade in our laps – the Digital ID Bill 2023. And nobody asked for it.

We must take this opportunity to tell the Senate to reject the bill!

I will post reminders over the next few weeks till deadline day. The four things as mentioned by Senator Antic:

▹ Please sign. Signing the petition is easy.

▹ Share with others and urge them to also sign.

▹ Contact your federal members. This is also possible.

▹ Write a submission. It may be the one that is not easy but can be done. I will try to get more information and put together some points so that those who want to participate will have some facts to use for their submission.

We have almost four weeks to the deadline. The closing date is 19 January 2024.

I hope those of you reading this will participate and will also encourage others – your family, friends, neighbours, relatives, others to take part and to pass it on.

    I’ve come across some articles related to the Digital ID.
    Posting the links for reference/research material which should be useful for submissions and information.

    It’s voluntary not compulsory

    Wonder why comments are blocked…?
    Katy Gallagher

    Finance Minister Katy Gallagher’s post on X about digital IDs being ‘voluntary’ fact-checked by Community Notes volunteers

    Digital Identity Bill 2023

    “Digital ID is not compulsory,” said Labor Minister Gallagher, all too casually.

    “It’s a voluntary …..

    Yeah right, “not compulsory”

    Just like they say the COVID jabs were never “mandatory”.

    Freedom ends with a cashless society – Digital Identity Bill

    Without cash, there is only a system of ‘government approved purchases’. Even if you don’t use cash, having it banned will mean the government can take complete control of you and access to your money at any time.

    The Trusted Digital Identity Bill aims to track every single purchase you make so they can cut you off whenever Government decides, this isn’t possible when you the option to use cash.

    There were six Senators who voted NO to Labor’s Identity Verification Services Bill – the precursor to the Digital ID Bill.

    At least two of the above – Antic and Babet have launched separate petitions. The CitizenGO petition was started by George Christensen. I don’t know if One Nation also has a petition.

    I contacted George C and asked him whether there was a way for him to combine his petition with Antic’s. I haven’t received a reply.

    Why did the six Senators not combine forces and launch one petition. They could have then directed their followers to the same link instead of splitting the total signatures.

    A check just now shows:
    Alex Antic:………… 115,557
    George Christensen: 21,195
    Ralph Babet:………. 8842

    This is the problem with Conservatives. We don’t work on uniting to defeat the common enemy. We work as individuals which is all well, but there are times when the united force helps.

    I’ve posted a number of links above. I’ve gone through the articles and picked out a few points that can be used by anyone planning to write a submission.

    Take the info in these points and rewrite them in your own words. Be polite in your submission otherwise it will get thrown into the bin.


    Digital ID without appropriate guardrails can result in errors and bias, aggregation of sensitive personal information, hacking and identity fraud, and denial of access to basis services and entitlements.

    “Digital identity also carries significant risk

    “Technology that enables digital identity initiatives – especially facial recognition technologies (FRT) such as facial verification, facial identification, or facial analysis – unavoidably restricts the right to privacy.

    “Recent major data breaches, involving millions of Australians, remind us of the consequences of poor data practices.”

    A digital ID scheme would mean that only one login would be required to prove a person’s identity
    What happens if this is hacked into? Everything will be stolen

    Security risk
    The national digital ID scheme has several pitfalls. Firstly, because the storing of ID document numbers on a single infrastructure exacerbates the risk of cyber attacks ─ having the population’s data in a centralised database is a goldmine for hackers to target and state-sponsored hacking. Secondly, if the national ID scheme database was breached or misused, people can’t simply change their biometrics, like they could with a password.

    Privacy risk
    The main concern with the proposed digital ID scheme is that it would essentially allow the linking of all your personal information, including tax history, welfare payments, driving record, and medical history (including your vaccination status), and enable iniquitous instances of discrimination, behaviour profiling, targeted advertising, or state surveillance. Laws would have to be passed that ensure privacy and consumer protections.

    Pulling all government information about you under one banner would make identity theft much easier. Add to this the increasingly personal nature of this information and we have increased potential for cyber-blackmail. As the information becomes more personal, malicious hackers are more likely to find things about you that you want to remain secret, and to blackmail you with this information. There is also the rising problem of “ransomware”: hackers break into the government database, encrypt that information and refuse to un-encrypt it until vast amounts of money are paid.

    Linking the unique identifier to a range of essential services makes the government and the community increasingly vulnerable to such attacks. Let us not forget that no system can be 100 per cent secure: hackers, malicious insiders, poor security design and human error all increase the chance that such a system will be breached.

    It will also abolish privacy, and effectively counter all aspects of human freedom.

    Above are 8 points to help with your submission in case you don’t have any others.

    The following points are not for submission but for your information – points picked from the above links. It is what the government DOESN’T want you to know.

    An online ID substantially reduces individual privacy; it gives increased power to government departments over people; it is a lure for future privatisation; is a massive cybersecurity risk; and if past experience is anything to go by, it will be dramatically more expensive than expected – and is likely to be a failure. From an ethical and practical standpoint, such a program is quite worrying.

    As a worst-case scenario, the ongoing ‘datafication’ of the population could spearhead a social credit system similar to what China has. Security experts argue the scheme deserves as much scrutiny as the controversial Australia Card proposal of the 1980s.

    On privacy, the concern is that by unifying our official information under one single online ID, we expose a great deal more about ourselves to those with access. By design, the range of people who will have access to our information is dramatically increased. The single online ID means that any government department can potentially access any official information about you – getting a parking ticket could potentially reveal your passport number, the names of all family members and criminal records. Of course, in the ideal system, only those with the right clearance willbe able access such personal information, but an ideal system requires greater oversight and willbe more costly and cumbersome.

    In terms of power, it means there is a higher potential for the unpaid parking ticket to prevent you from accessing other government services. Such a unified ID not only increases what can be known about you, but also gives departments much greater power over which services you can access and when.

    Digital ID will not be ‘compulsory’ in the same way that Covid vaccines were ‘voluntary’.
    Remember how many elected representatives scoffed in the faces of citizens who complained about being coerced and threatened?

    Surveillance of law-abiding citizens is not about security, it’s about power and control. Obedience is the government’s aim.
    These measures, bit by bit, are all steps to normalise and legitimise control. Who really benefits from such measures?
    Granting any government, the opportunity to exert more authority on your life and the lives of others is a reckless decision and won’t end well. Once freedoms are gone, they never return. Is this what you want for your children?
    More authority means more control, so at the very least we have to question why that is something governments want to impose upon us.

    A biometric Digital ID will enable a digital tyranny. That is its sole purpose.

    The Digital ID concept was originally formulated and exported from Davos, Switzerland. It is undeniably the diseased-brainchild of Klaus Schwab and his Pantheon of Psychopaths. It forms the key component of the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) vision for the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’ and their stated Transhumanistic objectives

    In typical Hegelian Dialectical devilry, we have been presented with the manufactured Problem (suspicious data hacks, cyberfraud, endless cyberattacks), they have engineered our Reaction (no longer safe from fraud, data paranoia), and they are readying their Solution: Digital ID (submit your biometrics: any combination of thumb and finger prints, palm prints, iris scan, facial scan, DNA etc.)

    It was telling that after the September 2022, “Optus Data breach” Medicare beneficiaries in October, 2022, whose information was hacked;5 and the 7.9 million Latitude members in March, 2023,6 whose driver’s licences were potentially compromised.

    Occam’s Razor slices to the real culprits: all three “data breaches” were false-flag operations orchestrated by elements within ASIO in coordination with advancing the National ID agenda. Indeed, the immediate investigation of the Optus “hack” (that was eventually partially-pinned on a 19-year-old Sydney-based patsy) was jointly overseen by ASIO and the FBI.

    It had all the telltale hallmarks of a classic Intelligence PsyOP….

    …and it undoubtedly was.

    All online activity will be observed through each Digital ID, and it will be used as a unique identifying key to gain access to the forthcoming Internet 2.0 — without it, you will be without internet access

    Every expressed social media sentiment, every post, every email will be scanned, recorded, and attributed to your Digital ID.

    All phone conversations and texts will be filtered and analysed for divergent attitudes, and to isolate fellow “thought-accomplices,” and alert authorities to potential pre-crime transgressions.

    Right-think will be coerced, and Wrong-think will be curtailed by a system of Social Credit reward and penalisation. An oppressive atmosphere of self-censorship will be established by inflicting punitive measures upon the outspoken, the disgruntled, and the habitually-defiant.

    A Digital ID is truly about implementing a Full Spectrum Dominance upon humanity.

    A Digital ID will provide the basis for eradicating cash and assigning unique Digital Wallets to each person to impose blockchain-enabled Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDCs).
    Without a Digital ID there can be no CBDCs.

    Without cash, there is only a system of ‘government approved purchases’. Even if you don’t use cash, having it banned will mean the government can take complete control of you and access to your money at any time.

    The Trusted Digital Identity Bill aims to track every single purchase you make so they can cut you off whenever Government decides, this isn’t possible when you the option to use cash.

    A One World AI-Government depends on each “world citizen” having a Digital ID.

    Every Australian citizen, including every child, will require a mandatory Digital ID — they will start from birth. A digital slave from cradle to grave.

    You will need it for everything; you will require it to buy and sell; you will depend upon it to eat: it is blatantly the Mark of the Beast.

    Again, the plans of the Technocrats depend on three things: ignorance, submission and a Digital ID.

    Do not be ignorant; do not submit, and do all you can to shun the Digital ID.

    Knowledge, truth, and mass-awareness will ultimately derail their Beast-laid plans.

    In China

    Chinese people with low social credit scores are ONLY allowed to travel by bus.

    They are not allowed to travel by plane, train or ferry.

    Digital ID, teamed with Central Bank Digital Currency allows the government to stop all forms of protest or political dissent at the flick of a switch and create a system of social credit like China’s.
