Who is Eva Vlaardingerbroek?
She studied law at Leiden University in which she took part at various prestige programs. After her study she worked at the European Parliament. Also, she wrote for papers in the Netherlands
This is what she is telling us in September of 2021.
Elsewhere on TAC today, Dutch commentator Eva Vlaardingerbroek writes about the vaccine passports mandatory in the Netherlands from this weekend, and what this means. Excerpts:
“Beginning tomorrow, September 25, everyone in the Netherlands above the age of 13 will need a “Digital Covid Certificate” in order to be allowed into restaurants, bars, theaters, cinemas, and concert halls. Basically, the things that make life enjoyable for most people, will be limited to those who are in possession of a Q.R. code that indicates they are either vaccinated, tested, or have recovered from Covid-19 within the past 160 days.
What is interesting—and, in my view, incredibly telling—about the Dutch situation in particular is that a whopping 85 percent of the Dutch population is currently already fully vaccinated. More than a year and a half into the Covid-crisis, it is estimated that 95 percent of the population has antibodies, and currently only 200 people are in the ICU. Yet it is at this very moment that our government decides to introduce the most far-reaching and invasive measure the Dutch have seen to date. This is only the beginning.
She makes an argument for why the vaccine passports are not necessary at this point, and won’t actually do what the government claims they will do. So why have them? What is the end game? She goes on:
Frustratingly, only a very limited number of people in the West see what is really at stake here. Most fail to see that, once these Q.R. systems are enforced and people have become accustomed to them, these systems can be used for a variety of other purposes as well. It is most likely not a coincidence that a couple of weeks ago, suddenly, a nationwide poll was conducted to enquire how the Dutch viewed the possibility of a “personal carbon credit” system. Nevertheless, a large majority seems to believe—or want to believe—that all of this is for the common good, or that it is at least all temporary and won’t “get that far.”
I hope they are right, but I cannot help feeling that Tocqueville hit the nail on the head, as he often did, when he wrote that the type of despotism democratic people have to fear will in no way look like the despotism and tyranny our ancestors endured: “It would be more extensive and more mild; it would degrade men without tormenting them,” he wrote in 1840. And, in a way, the fact that it happens more gradually is what makes it arguably even more dangerous. After all, a people that do not realize they are losing their freedom will not fight for it. They will simply let it slip through their fingers.
She’s talking about soft totalitarianism. And she’s talking about the fact that unless she gets vaccinated, she and all the others like her are going to be essentially turned into recluses in their own country.”
This is what she said in January of 2022.
“There is a massive movement going on in Europe right now of tons of people, hundreds of thousands, millions actually who are very much aware of what’s at stake here. These people are aware of the fact that our constitutional rights are being set aside without an end date and that we’re heading towards a new system, a tyrannical regime of mass surveillance and control. And this is not just a hunch. This is all part of a bigger plan. This is something people watching right now can go and look up.
What’s very important for the American audience to know is that we’ve had this digital COVID pass in place in Europe, which is basically like a QR Code on your phone that grants you access to everyday life, like to bars, restaurants, etc. It’s completely [attached] to your vax status and this is all part of a European project issued by the European Commission that is basically surrounded around a European digital identity. So this will not stay just linked to your vaccination status. This will encompass taxes. This will encompass your medical records, apart from your vaccination status, your bank information.
So basically, we already have a system in place now that’s very close, or at least from my interpretation, the beginning phases of a social credit system. We are literally turning into China.”
“China’s social credit system is an ambitious initiative to build a database that monitors individual, corporate, and government behavior across the country in real time. According to the Chinese government, the system will use big data to build a high-trust society where individuals and organizations follow the law.”
This is what the collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat, - all the same) is intending for the United States. Yes, it has a firm grip on the Democrat Party. Poll shows 59% of Dem voters want unvaccinated confined at home, 45% want them in 'designated facilities,' 48% demand fines or imprisonment for anyone who questions efficacy of vaccines. The poll is from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports who surveyed 1,016 U.S. "likely voters" on Jan. 5.
