(Kitco News) - Digital IDs linked to a social credit score and a programmable digital currency could be a reality by 2030, based on the UN's agenda for the next decade. Mandatory digital identification and centralized control are also on the agenda of the group of billionaire elites called "Controligarchs," according to Seamus Bruner, best-selling author, investigative journalist, and Director of Research at the Government Accountability Institute.
In his new book, 'Controligarchs: Exposing the Billionaire Class, their Secret Deals, and the Globalist Plot to Dominate Your Life,' Bruner exposes the influence and control of billionaires like Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, George Soros, and Mark Zuckerberg over various sectors of our lives from media to finance to health care and vaccines to food and agriculture.
"Controligarchs are very simply the oligarchs who want to control your life," Bruner told Michelle Makori, Lead Anchor and Editor-in-Chief at Kitco News. "It's not every billionaire. But these men have used the powers of government, much like the oligarchs, to seize control over key industries, whether it's food, finance, healthcare, energy, or the information industry. We're headed for some pretty scary territories, and we're already there in a lot of ways."
Dystopian future: subscription-type lifestyle
Bruner discusses the link between digital IDs, central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), data sharing and social or environmental credit scores and the powerful entities orchestrating these changes.
"The idea behind a digital ID is that it can easily be linked to a social credit score," he pointed out. "There are credit cards that already track your carbon purchases. And if you have spent too much money on fuel or carbon-based products, your credit score goes down." Bruner explained how with Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI) a term that includes digital IDs, digital payments, and massive data sharing, this is achieved more efficiently.
Bruner added that there is a desire amongst these globalist elites to monitor your spending. And if specific set rules are violated, people risk getting banned and their finances frozen.
"They want to bring about a renter-based economy where you don't own your house, you don't own your car. They think it's a brilliant and lovely idea, but most people don't want to be a renter for life paying someone else's mortgage on a property owned by BlackRock," he said. "Effectively, it is like a paywall around your entire life. They want a subscription-based lifestyle."

The broader impact of these technologies could be devastating, Bruner argued, including the loss of privacy and autonomy. "It's happening in a lot of places. It happened during the pandemic," he said.
In this world, dissent could be easily crushed, and individuals would be forced to depend entirely on a centralized system for their financial and social existence.
Bruner also identifies other key individuals and organizations pushing this agenda, including Klaus Schwab, Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum. To hear how Schwab fits in watch the video above.
In his new book, Bruner claims that Bill Gates' investments in patented fertilizers, fake meat, and U.S. farmland are not primarily about saving the planet but rather about increasing his own wealth and controlling the food market.
At the end of 2022, in the 'Ask Me Anything' event on Reddit, Gates admitted that he owns about 270,000 acres of farmland spread across 18 states.
Bruner traced the origins of this type of control framed as philanthropy to the Rockefeller family. For more details, watch the video above.
According to Bruner, several solutions exist, including awareness and non-compliance.
Bruner discusses ways to opt out of the system including gold and bitcoin. Watch the video above to hear why this grim future is not necessarily the inevitable outcome.
