from Henry Makow:
The central bankers could control everybody by simply eliminating cash and shutting off their atm & credit cards. This is exactly what they are planning.
Within the next few decades, it is likely that there will be no more hard cash (coins/notes) left. By this point, the notion of using physical money will be a distant memory tinged with disbelief. “How did we ever manage something so clumsy and backward?” many will say. An increasing number of people are already saying similar things.
In January, 2016, John Cryan, Chief Executive of Deutsche Bank predicted that: “Cash, I think, in ten years time probably won’t (exist). There is no need for it, it is terribly inefficient and expensive.”
Most of the arguments for a cashless society sound sensible and logical on first glance. People who argue against the ‘progress’ and ‘sense’ of this development have been accused of being backward, suspicious, or worse. In light of this, it is going to take considerable courage and character to refuse to conform to the inevitable process unfolding before our eyes.
This article explores five ways in which people are being heavily conditioned to accept the cashless society, and it concludes with what we need to do in order to take a stand against this.
(1) Rhetoric — The use of violent and aggressive language consistently gives the impression that Cash is something we need to treat as an enemy, and thus make war against.
The headline to one article reads: “One Swede Will Kill Cash Forever–Unless His Foe Saves It From Extinction.“ The article features the story of Abba front man, Bjorn Ulvaeus, who became a spokesperson for the cashless society after his son was robbed. Ulvaeus postulated that the chance of this happening would have been greatly reduced if paper money (exchanged for stolen items) did not exist. …
2) ‘Reason’ –Here is a line from one Fox News report: “There is no credible cause for concern about implanting these tiny microchips under your skin.” As Ellen Brown wrote in her article “The War on Savings: The Panama Papers, Bail-Ins, and the Push to Go Cashless”: “It’s all about knowing where the money is and who owns it, in order to tax it, regulate it, “sanction” it, or confiscate it.”
Contrary to what the public is being led to believe, the real “winners” of the war on cash are not the vast majority of the public. The winners are those individuals who stand to significantly profit from it – mainly the banking cartels and those who support their policies.
(3) Ridicule — Mastercard, one of the main financial institutions propelling the cashless society, commissioned a billboard advertising their lead debit brand, Maestro, emblazoned with the slogan: “Cash is so last millennium!” Between the lines, users of cash were being labelled as archaic and behind the times.
