(OPINION) Dozens of national governments are joining with the United Nations and billionaire population-control fanatic Bill Gates on a global program to impose “digital public infrastructure” (DPI) on their citizens within five years.

This “DPI” includes central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), digital identification, comprehensive data systems, and more, all functional across national borders.

The new scheme, unveiled late last year and moving ahead rapidly, is known as “50 in 5” because 50 governments expect to have the Orwellian “digital infrastructure” of tyranny in place within five years.


Almost a dozen governments, including numerous corrupt kleptocracies and socialist regimes, have volunteered their populations to serve as “First Mover” countries so far.

However, the UN’s assumption is that every government will eventually impose this on every person on Earth. This is clearly expressed throughout its announcements.

“All countries, regardless of income level, geography, or where they are in their digital transformation journey, can benefit from being a part of 50-in-5,” the UN agency behind the scheme declared. “Joining the campaign helps ensure countries don’t have to tackle DPI implementation alone or start from scratch.”

Led by the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the new “digital infrastructure” is being framed as a tool to accelerate the imposition of the highly controversial UN’s 2030 Agenda “Sustainable Development Goals,” referred to in 2015 by key UN leaders as the “Master Plan for Humanity.”

As they are known, the SDGs call for global wealth redistribution and drastically more government power over people’s lives at all levels. China has boasted of playing a “crucial role” in developing the plan.

Gates celebrated the role of these technologies in imposing the UN SDGs on humanity. “The G20 reached a groundbreaking consensus on the role of digital public infrastructure as a critical accelerator of the Sustainable Development Goals,” he said on X. “I’m optimistic about the potential of DPI to support a safer, healthier, and more just world.”

The whole program is being guided by the UN and elitists, including Gates and others such as the Rockefellers, longtime financiers of globalism, eugenics, and population-control schemes. Multiple front groups steered by such “controligarchs” were created for the purpose. But U.S. and European taxpayers are being conscripted to foot much of the bill via UN agencies and international “development” banks.

If not stopped, critics say the new suite of “digital public goods” and “infrastructure” will create a technological panopticon allowing for total surveillance and control of all people everywhere.

Indeed, as the 2030 Agenda makes clear, “no one will be left behind.” Once in full swing, literally every transaction would be tracked, monitored, and controlled.

UN bureaucrats put a happy face on the program. “For UNDP, a DPI approach that combines people-centric governance is critical to ensure that this new infrastructure can accelerate the [2030 Agenda] SDGs,” argued Keyzom Ngodup Massally, head of digital programs at UNDP.

“This country-led 50-in-5 campaign is a core part of how UNDP continues to support meaningful global digital cooperation and strengthens local ecosystems to design and implement rights-based DPI.”

Already, virtually all national governments and central banks around the world are working on central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), according to the Bank for International Settlements in Switzerland, which is helping to guide and coordinate the rolling out of such currencies worldwide. As cash is sidelined and then disappears, CBDCs will create a permanent record of all transactions.

Perhaps even more troubling, leading experts and officials say digital currencies will also be programmable. That will allow governments an unprecedented degree of control over the economy and individual consumer decisions.

In fact, the Biden White House has even called for CBDCs to advance “racial equity” and “environmental priorities.” Leading luminaries have called for them to track individual carbon footprints, too.

Along with CBDCs, governments around the world are rolling out digital IDs to accompany them. The Australian Senate just voted to approve such a system last week.

Multiple American state governments, including some controlled entirely by Republicans, are pursuing similar schemes. Various organizations associated with Gates, the Rockefeller dynasty, and the UN have been promoting such IDs for years, including through groups such as ID2020.

Ultimately, the digital IDs and CBDCs will become inseparable. The Financial Times discussed the relationship between all the different systems in the digital infrastructure system in a 2021 piece headlined “Why CBDCs Will Likely Be ID-based.” It reveals how CBDCs and digital IDs can (and will) ultimately be used together to control people.
