We must fight to not go cashless.

Saw a sign at the A&W (fast food) drive in today, when I was out with my brother.

"We still accept cash, but feel that not using it will be better for all of us."


It's just to flatten the curve
It's just so we don't overwhelm the healthcare system
It's just 2 weeks
It's just to keep us safe
Just put on the mask

Just pay cash
Just give up the smartphone
Just say NO to a vaccine

I've seen a lot of these ad hoc printed sheets asking people to use credit.

This will push a segment of people who think outside the box to expand bartering. Of course I'm sure they will seek to criminalize it more than they have already.

I mean, I already use cash for grocery shopping (mostly out of habit), but I'm not sure it's going to make any difference.

When cash is outlawed, not even outlaws will accept cash.

It becomes increasingly difficult for me to lament the coming tribulations, not despite the horrific toll they will exact on humanity, but because the cost will be largely borne by people that have not undertaken (or cannot) to understand the cost to them and us of the benefits to our overlords.

It's difficult for me to counter my arrogance, conceit, and despite for them that foolishly rush in to the slaughterhouse corral I am loathe to even contemplate, much less occupy.

The cautionary description of life in the coming cashless society is of critical import, and I am confounded that most people, almost certainly those that most need to know and protect themselves, their families, and communities, will never even see it. Their first exposure to the very idea that such institutional controls will be possible will be when they are applied to them.

It's hard to be optimistic about the prospects of folks as arrogant and conceited as myself, who are further burdened by trust in their overlords. I can at least count on my paranoia to produce maximal avoidance of exposure to seductive propaganda, which will reduce my exposure to the consequences of performing the recommended social actions.

For those that are blessed by reading that factual exposition of the consequences of technocratic tyranny, only the most incapable of reason could fail to grasp the harm it would do them and their society, even if they fail to grasp that harm - and the control it gives them - the most useful benefit overlords seek from it.

I reckon you have met the highest standard of achieving public good by producing an exposition of such simplicity and clarity that almost everyone can understand it, and could verify it with ease to a high degree of certainty. Indeed, given the looming prospect of those exact consequences, publishing fair warning today is comparable to covering a grenade landing in the middle of your platoon in WWII with your body to save your fellows.

Now that technocrats are forcing DNA alteration by government mandate, any arrest will certainly result in being genetically altered, which I cannot refute is capable of legally, as well as physiologically, ending your human life just as surely as a knee to the neck.

Thanks for being that kind of hero James.

Here's a question for you: if a voter becomes Bill Gates private property, does that avail Bill Gates of the vote his property was accorded?

Revelation 13: 16-17
Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.

It's coming.... seek Jesus the only hope out of this mess

I am struck by the recommendations Jesus made, both in the words he spoke and by the life he led. He invested in the community of people, and his parables recommended that as well.

When the government knocks on doors to forcibly inject subjects with DNA alterations, and prevents people who remain genetically unaltered from transacting, it is the goodwill of our fellows alone that will avail us who refuse to be marked access to goods and services we do not make ourselves.

Accordingly, I'm a big fan of Jesus because his life's work was revealing how to survive this technocratic tyranny: make goodwill your currency and then seek wealth in that coin.

He said 'Take up your cross and follow me.' The only meaningful recommendation I can interpret from those words is to emulate his actions so we can ' [what he did] and greater things...'

He certainly never told people to pray to him, but fed people, healed them, and improved their lives with his counsel. If you do that, I will account you as having 'sought' Jesus successfully. Your works will reveal your faith.

His did.

Very well said, if we all used Jesus as an example and emulated his actions the world wouldn't be in this mess, It is a tricky one about praying to him though, he does say ask anything in my name and I will give it

John 14:13 and 14
(13) And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father.
(14) You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it

And when asked by people to see God he says to them you are looking at him I and the father are one..

You are right about your works revealing your faith I totally agree, we are not saved through our works but faith in Jesus and those works should come natuarrly through that faith,

Thanks for your comments bro, we got to stick together and seek to to emulate Him and show all people love in these crazy times we are living in

While this is definitely a possibility (and no doubt one of TPTB's goals) I think it is easy to underestimate the resistance that would arise when actually implementing such a change in Europe, USA or other "democratic" countries. Just like we are starting to see large scale demonstrations in these countries against corona restrictions (e.g., Berlin and London yesterday), demonstrations against implementing a cashless society would be tremendous (obviously I don't really know; this reasoning rather stems from personal experience and from reading newspaper articles about this topic). A comparison with e.g. China, in my opinion, is therefore difficult as its socio-historical culture is much more amenable for implementing such changes.

We've gone from gold as the only money allowed, to gold heavily suppressed and manipulated with worthless fiat being printed by the trillions - 99.99% of the way to a cashless society - and nobody has raised an eyebrow, let alone a protest sign. The whole "sleeping giant will awake" thing has been proved false. Liberty has been lost and nobody bothered to fight for it.

I suggest reviewing the recent history of India, where cash has been replaced with biometric identity and digital money.

Then consider the prospect of biometric data being hacked. If your pin is hacked, you can replace it. Once your biometric data is hacked, you are fucked for life.

I find it relevant that Indians recently protested the lack of onions far more than they did conversion to digital money. It reveals that money is not wealth and people innately know this. Onions are wealth. Money is merely the mechanism for exchanging wealth, and as long as it functions for that purpose other details of it matter little - except that the added functionality of digital money is precisely that it's functionality can be selectively disabled.

Steem is the model for digital fiat IRL. While we generally haven't critically discussed Hive as an experimental model of a counter to global imposition of digital fiat, we should. I have always maintained that money is only useful as long as possession and use are securely controlled by the bearer. Because Hive is only accessible through ISPs which are owned and controlled by investors, Hive is not secure.

Goats or beaver pelts are more secure than Hive in that respect, and that is something that investors necessarily reckon in their due diligence.

cashless society will become a reality sooner than we think and despite our opposition.

Yes, and I think when they're ready to do it, it will happen all at once, without warning, and without going back. Like in Canada when the penny was killed in 2012. One day they made the announcement, and the next day you couldn't find any pennies anywhere, not in cash registers, not from the bank, nothing. Within a few months none existed except in coin collections. I was shocked how sudden it was, and I'm certain it was done that way on purpose. When they're certain enough of us will acquiesce to a cashless world, they'll snap their fingers and it'll be in place within days.

"it will happen all at once, without warning"
+1 for this

and it's sad how a handful of old elite billionaires call the shots on the future of the larger population.

Yep it's pretty scary how all of this command-and-control is built on how much control that communist China already wields over its population

And after all that comes the Biblical "Mark of the Beast",
Where You cannot buy or sell....

The urge to control is one of humanity's greates source of power and weakness in the same time. The thirst for control can corrupt the mind. And corrupted minds can corrupt societies. Indeed a troubling thing to observe from a behavioral perspective.
