Ursula von der Leyen wants a single digital identity for all EU citizens.
The Commission President plans to give all EU citizens "a European digital identity" that they can "use anywhere in Europe to do anything from pay taxes to rent a bike". She wants to implement for Europe what ID2020, the World Economic Forum, the World Bank and Homeland Security are doing worldwide - to perfect the automated surveillance of the world's population.
In Ursula von der Leyen's State of the Union address on 16 September, another important announcement was missed in addition to a tighter climate target. The President of the Commission said
"We in Europe want a set of rules that puts people first. The Commission will propose a law to that effect next year. This includes control over our personal data, which we have far too little of today. Every time a website asks us to create a new digital identity or to register conveniently via a large platform, we really have no idea what happens to our data. This is why the Commission will soon propose a secure European digital identity. One that we can trust and that citizens can use anywhere in Europe to do anything from paying taxes to renting a bike. A technology where we ourselves can control what data is exchanged and how it is used".
