An anonymous group called EARNE $ T is holding an auction of personal items taken from Davos .
It says such items contain DNA samples, which may belong to Donald Trump and other world leaders.
The group wants to raise awareness of “surveillance capitalism.”
Donald Trump is for sale.
On Feb. 23, an anonymous group of activists called “EARNE $ T” is holding an auction in New York. They’re selling a range of objects they furtively salvaged from the World Economic Forum in Davos in 2020. These objects include used eating utensils, napkins, glasses, cigarette stubs and strands of hair. While such objects obviously don’t give buyers access to Donald Trump himself, they’ll provide access to his DNA and ‘genetic secrets,’ as well as the secrets of other Davos 2020 attendees.
Or so the members of EARNE $ T claim. The anonymous group says its holding the auction to create awareness of “surveillance capitalism.” They want to warn the public that the likes of Google and Facebook are intent on harvesting as much of our personal data as possible.
Such “resolution” comes at a price. The items in “The Davos Collection” have estimated guide prices ranging from $ 1, 06 to $ , . Still, EARNE $ T boasts that the available items effectively grant buyers the ability to know everything about the individuals who used them.
Users will gain key insights into Davos attendees, including a participant’s potential physical and mental ailments or gifts, ancestry, records of diet and medications, substance abuse and exposure to environmental factors.
EARNE $ T admits that “the expectation of privacy may be a legal concern with certain items.” In other words, it could get itself into trouble by auctioning what may be Donald Trump’s genetic material.
