France Authorizes Creation of 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.

If you’re unfamiliar with the dangers of digital ID, Maajid Nawaz offers this fantastic breakdown on Joe Rogan’s podcast.

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.

Express reported:

The move sparked the fury of Les Patriotes leader Florian Philippot who called on French voters to fight against the new legislation.

He said: “Just after the election, the government announces the launch of ‘a digital identity application’!

“The goal: to put social credit in the Chinese way. Control and surveillance company!

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

Some French voters also voiced their dissent over the new digital ID plans.

French Twitter user Chrisoff wrote: “One more step towards absolute control of citizens.”

Twitter user The Q2 Observer echoed: “A decree has been published for the creation of the SGIN, the mobile app that will scan the biometric ID to access public or private services.

“In France for the moment, soon the same everywhere.

“What is optional and trivial at the beginning will be essential and cumbersome in the long term. Resist!”

And Twitter user John Aimare added: “It’s all starting to get very dystopian… The SGIN to connect to Twitter, Facebook or any other social exchange platform.

“The DSA providing the framework to monitor and punish you.”

Macron’s election victory sparked massive protests in the streets.

In his first public outing since reelection, Macron faced a barrage of tomatoes.

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.

For instance, a municipal Italian government introduced a social credit system that rewards citizens for good behavior.

In Nigeria, the federal government ordered telecommunication companies to bar calls from phone numbers not yet linked to a National Identity Number (“NIN”).
