Temporary-and-then-eventually-permanent fuel rationing has begun in Sri Lanka. Those vaccine passports people were going on about? They were clearly beta tests for a much more sinister digital identity rationing game about to go global:
As per the Fuel Quota policies, Sri Lankans will have to apply with their National Identity Card Numbers once their ID and other details are verified and will then be assigned a QR code to access gas at pumps across the country.
Sri Lankans will then be made to take turns to get fuel based on the last digit of their vehicle registration numbers. However, tourists and foreigners will be given priority to get fuel in Colombo (the largest city in Sri Lanka) — likely to avoid even more damage to Sri Lanka’s tourism industry.
Armed guards are reportedly assisting with implementing the QR code digital ID fuel rationing program. They were also previously deployed to gas stations and equipped with military-grade weapons to prevent those with “non-essential vehicles” from purchasing gas.
In May, Sri Lanka’s energy sector came to the point of total collapse and has continued a downward trajectory ever since.
All kinds of fucked up.
Sri Lanka is a test case in my opinion. ESG and ‘sustainable farming’ practices annihilated the country and now rationing and inflation are it’s future.
Australia is ripe for something like this. Compliant, demoralised populace aside our much-storied reliance on importing oil and lack of refinery/strategic reserve will create the ultimate shitstorm and excuse for this. We’ve already had rationing in the supermarkets and that looks like it’s about to get a whole lot worse with this foot and mouth ‘outbreak’. Cloward-Piven strategy all over again.
What I’ve found interesting during this whole debacle is that island nations – Australia, New Zealand, UK/Ireland and Sri Lanka foremostly – have been the most draconian of the lot.
Canada is definitely up there too, but my cynical mind tells me that if the World Economic Forum can crush dissent in these countries first due to their obvious geographic lay out (Sri Lanka almost completely closed it’s airspace during COVID and we all know Australia and NZ’s policy on entry/exit) they can do it everywhere.
Oh yeh, the new Sri Lankan Prime Minister, wonder what his background is:
Both the new UK PM candidates are the same.
This is an attempted global coup that’s going to get even uglier. But hey, just buy a Tesla to hedge against fuel prices you fuckin idiot!
