The Globalists Strike Back With A Major Push Toward A Cashless Society

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Michael SNyder via The Economic Collapse blog,

Their agenda may be on the rocks in the United States at the moment, but that doesn’t mean that the globalists are giving up.  In fact, a major push toward a cashless society is being made in the European Union right now.  Last May we learned that the 500 euro note is being completely eliminated, and just a few weeks ago the European Commission released a new “Action Plan” which instructs member states to explore “potential upper limits to cash payments”.  In the name of “fighting terrorism”, this “Action Plan” discusses the benefits of “prohibitions for cash payments above a specific threshold” and it says that those prohibitions should include “virtual currencies (such as BitCoin) and prepaid instruments (such as pre-paid credit cards) when they are used anonymously.”

This new document does not mention what an appropriate threshold would be for member states, but we do know that Spain already bans certain cash transactions above 2,500 euros, and Italy and France already ban cash transactions above 1,000 euros.

This is a perfect way to transition to a cashless society without creating too much of an uproar.  By setting a maximum legal level for cash transactions and slowly lowering it, in effect you can slowly but surely phase cash out without people understanding what is happening.

And there are many places in Europe where it is very difficult to even use cash at this point.  In Sweden, many banks no longer take or give out cash, and approximately 95 percent of all retail transactions are entirely cashless.  So even though Sweden has not officially banned cash, using cash is no longer practical in most situations.  In fact, many tourists are shocked to find out that they cannot even pay bus fare with cash.

So most of Europe is already moving in this direction, and now this new Action Plan is intended to accelerate the transition toward a cashless society.  The public is being told that these measures are being taken to fight money laundering and terrorism, but of course that is only a small part of the truth.  The following comes from the Anti-Media

The European Action Plan doesn’t mention a specific dollar amount for restrictions, but as expected, their reasoning for the move is to thwart money laundering and the financing of terrorism. Border checks between countries have already been bolstered to help implement these new standards on hard assets. Although these end goals are plausible, there are other clear motivations for governments to target paper money that aren’t as noble.

In a truly cashless society, governments would be able to track where everybody is and what everybody is doing all the time.  And in order to have access to the cashless system, people would have to comply with whatever requirements governments wanted to impose on their helpless populations.  The potential for tyranny that this would create would be off the charts, but very few people seem greatly alarmed by the move toward a cashless system all over the globe.

Even in the United States there are calls for a cashless system.  For example, the former chief economist for the IMF wrote an article for the Wall Street Journal not too long ago in which he recommended the elimination of the $100 bill

“There is little debate among law-enforcement agencies that paper currency, especially large notes such as the U.S. $100 bill, facilitates crime: racketeering, extortion, money laundering, drug and human trafficking, the corruption of public officials, not to mention terrorism. There are substitutes for cash—cryptocurrencies, uncut diamonds, gold coins, prepaid cards—but for many kinds of criminal transactions, cash is still king. It delivers absolute anonymity, portability, liquidity and near-universal acceptance.”

Over in Asia restrictions are being put on cash as well.  Legendary investor Jim Rogers commented on what is currently happening in India during one recent podcast

The time will come when you won’t be able to buy a cup of coffee without being traced, warns investment guru Jim Rogers. To control people, governments will increasingly seek to hunt down cash spending, he adds.

 

“Governments are always looking out for themselves first, and it’s the same old thing that has been going on for hundreds of years. The Indians recently did the same thing. They withdrew 86 percent of the currency in circulation, and they have now made it illegal to spend more than, I think it’s about $4,000 in any cash transaction. In France you cannot use more than, I think it’s a €1,000,” said Rogers in an interview with MacroVoices Podcast.

The reason why this is taking place all over the planet is because this is a global agenda.

The globalists ultimately plan to completely eliminate cash, and this will give them an unprecedented level of control over humanity.

One thing that many fear may someday be implemented is some form of microchip identification system.  In order to access the cashless grid, you would need your “ID chip” so that the system could positively identify you, but of course there are millions of people around the world that do not intend to get chipped under any circumstances.

In the old days, you would be labeled a “conspiracy theorist” just for suggesting that they may try to chip all of us one day, but in 2017 things have completely changed.

Just look at what is happening in Nevada.  A bill has been introduced in the state senate that would outlaw the “forced microchipping of people”

State Sen. Becky Harris said a bill to prohibit forced microchipping of people is not as far-fetched as it might seem, because it happens in some places around the world.

 

Senate Bill 109 would make it a Class C felony to require someone to be implanted with a radio frequency identifier, such as microchips placed in pets.

 

The idea for the bill came from a constituent, the Las Vegas Republican said.

If that sounds very strange to you, then you may not know that companies all around the globe are already starting to explore this type of technology.  For instance, a company in Belgium called NewFusion has actually begun to microchip their employees

In a move that could be lifted straight from science fiction, workers at a Belgian marketing firm are being offered the chance to have microchips implanted in their bodies.

 

The chips contain personal information and provide access to the company’s IT systems and headquarters, replacing existing ID cards.

 

The controversial devices raise questions about personal security and safety, including whether they may allow the movements of people with implants to be tracked.

Technology like this often starts off being “voluntary”, but then after enough people willingly accept it the transition to “mandatory” is not too difficult.

We live at one of the most critical moments in all of human history, and the globalists are certainly not going to lay down and die just because Donald Trump won the election.

The U.S. represents less than five percent of the population of the planet, and in most of the world the agenda of the globalists is on track and is rapidly advancing.

The globalists want a unified one world economy, a unified one world religion and a unified one world government.  The election of Donald Trump was a blow to the globalists, but it has also made them more dangerous, more ruthless and more determined than ever before.

And in case you think that using the term “globalists” is a bit strange, the truth is that even the New York Times is using it to describe the global elite and their global agenda.

We are in a life or death battle for the future of our society, and the globalists are never going to give up until they get what they want.  So now is not a time for complacency, because the very future of our country is at stake.

Hey no cash, no reason to have a bank.

 

 

If there is no physical medium of exchange, then there is no reason for a physical corporation to store or handle it.

Nigel Farrage could put an end to the globalists in short order. Tell everyone to withdraw all their money in the bank and buy gold. In one week not a bank would be left standing.

they will just make it impossible to transact without an authorized account. middlemen will run amok. the time when a flash-mob bank run is the order of the day draws ever closer.

DjangoCat's picture

With cash removed, how do you have a bank run.  Run to what?  Bronze screws?

Archibald Buttle's picture

bags of rice or dried beans? guns? ammo? PMs? cans of oxygen?

once the bank run into cash is voided, and if the masses ever figure this part out, the bank run will be into things that will last for a while and can be traded for food later, when ebt and credit cards dont work so good anymoar.

and, yes, bronze screws might be something to invest in certain scenarios. i just dont have that kind of insider info.

None of them is killed yet, but it is coming, when the pressure cooker reach its limit and the security valves is totally blocked it will blow up.

Killed?...hmmm... Did I say killed?

But you do make a good point.

Croesus's picture

I'll say it:

Every last one of these globalist "lords on the manor" should be slowly tortured, and eventually killed, along with every member of their family.

Millions of people have died at their hands. Who knows what potential the world has lost, as a result of their pursuit of their twisted goals?

These are psychopathic mass-murderers, who indiscriminately hurt everything and everyone on this planet.

They deserve no mercy. They have never showed an ounce of compassion or humanity, to anyone, other than the phony acts they put on for public consumption.

The Gun Is Good's picture

Totally agree.

I have a (s)hit list of ones I could realistically take out when the time comes (and it is coming). (I fully expect to ultimately perish in the struggle though. Many Founders died in the fight to build this nation, and the Tree of Liberty *does* require patriot blood as well as that of tyrants, after all....)

But it's a new era, and traditional modes of revolution won't work. Plus, people are too stupid, divided in their beliefs and along too many other lines, self-serving, afraid of "authority," indoctrinated, etc. to be educated as to the real cause(s) of their falling living standards and disappearing freedoms. The time has passed, and it's too late for large scale movements.

Cutting out those cancerous among us is the easiest way forward. There are so few of them, too, and we know who the vast majority of them are.

Honestly, I am pretty optimistic... and especially if other patriots see the sense of this approach. Fighting the armored goons is obviously a losing strategy, what with surveillance, drones, milspec weapons, etc. ready for deployment against citizens; however, going right to the top and neutralizing the actual guilty players (and tossing in some good collateral damage like families, etc. for psychological effect and to prevent genetic spread) is tantamount to cutting heads off the monster. It is viable strategically for individual actors and will be a boon to restoring Liberty. I think we may discover it's the only way forward, but it may be easier to enact in the midst of economic collapse. In dark times there are many more shadows in which to operate.

I do dread it terribly though, make no mistake. I have a rich if humble life with the love of a good woman, and, like a lot of people here, there are a million things I want to do before I'm dead. But Justice is my mistress, and I must serve her with all the force and vengeance I can muster. I'm just so fucking SICK of evil, and I cannot live while it flourishes right before my very eyes... and in such an abomination of form as that of the "government" of this very country, which, while imperfect, was meant to be free.

Reminds me of playing basketball and facing the onslaught of a full-court press as a youngster -- here we have glib "globalists" attacking on a dozen or more fronts. Those awake and affronted find multiple, simultaneous breaches in the status quo, moving targets dodging to and fro, the planet their playing field. I can count on the fingers of one hand those I know who care to engage about looming "cashlessless".

It is time to remind readers of past article by Michael Snyder on 97 Taxes.

"The globalists want a unified one world economy, a unified one world religion and a unified one world government. The election of Donald Trump was a blow to the globalists, but it has also made them more dangerous, more ruthless and more determined than ever before."

What could galvanize people more than "Illuminating the Mandatory Payments they make to be a citizen like Monthly Phone Service, Utilities, Property Taxes, Mortgage and Auto Insurance, SS, Medicare... Obama Care (ACA)...

#1 Air Transportation Taxes (just look at how much you were charged the last time you flew)
#2 Biodiesel Fuel Taxes
#3 Building Permit Taxes
#4 Business Registration Fees
#5 Capital Gains Taxes
#6 Cigarette Taxes
#7 Court Fines (indirect taxes)
#8 Disposal Fees
#9 Dog License Taxes
#10 Drivers License Fees (another form of taxation)
#97

Cellphone taxes, works out to around 20%. So I get $5 pay-as-you-go for a cheap cellphone, and end up paying over $6. Or a phone line, something like $6+ per month extra for most providers, even if you only pay that much for the line itself (VoIP = cheap).

TeethVillage88s's picture

Wow. Psy-Op. They think you won't realize since you have low purchase price.

See David Cay Johnston book Fine Print(?) basically tells you that the Telecoms promised lower prices as cable was laid and connected... but instead they added lines to the phone bill... and added fake tax for FCC onto the Cell Phone Bill... total ripoff... probably part of the 20%.

Germany is never going cashless. If anything, we go back to a gold backed currency where the coins are actually valuable. Germans are using cash everywhere and many many businesses including restaurants are not accepting any pastic, let alone credit cards.

IT WILL NOT HAPPEN

Don't fall for TPTB attempt to scare you into giving up your cash holdings.

HOLD CASH. Even in a reset they will exchange old cash for new cash with a fair discount. Same discount everyone will get regardless of where the wealth is held including shit coin.

Gold, silver and cash are not going away. NEVER.
