We have been witnessing the “marginalization” of cash purchases over the years: the “shrinking” of what is allowed…permissible…to be purchased with cash. This is deliberate on the parts of corporations and their oligarch-directors, banks, and governments. All three of these are in league with one another…with the solemn “blessings” of the religious puppet-masters, regardless of creed or denomination.
The abolition of cash is necessary for several reasons:
- To eliminate “black market” economies: the black markets, simply put, are free enterprise minus control and monitoring to regulate and tax those enterprises.
- To tax “normative” businesses with no possibility of even a dime being unaccounted for
- To steal with impunity [The Golden Rule: He who has the gold makes the rules]
- To make your money disappear inexplicably: as in the case of an electronics “glitch” or a “computer error.” With nothing but electronic “quatloos” to your credit, you possess nothing tangible…therefore, it’s easier to take away.
- To monitor your every transaction: every purchase, every expenditure…providing further ammunition to the companies to incessantly bombard you with marketing and sales attacks based on your demographics.
- To monitor you, as a person: every like and dislike, your social, religious, political, and private proclivities opened before them.
- To track your movements, as well as purchases: No more cash means POS (Point of Sale) with the computer (once called a “cash register”), camera above your face, bar coded product, inventory and marketing stats all neatly figured in, and biometric data stored up in one package…. a record of your travels via your purchases, now done electronically.
- Shut you down in an instant: Some primate reports “suspicious” activity about you, and an investigation begins?
How exciting! An investigation! Nothing interests them more than what is not immediately discernible from a precursory inspection. An investigation! That is the key concept…with “investigation” being the key word to getting the ball rolling…to being able to deny you of your previous rights enumerated under the Constitution. By the time you prove yourself innocent? You’ll have wasted thousands of dollars…now pumped into their system…and your activities shut down with a black spot on your record…as “justification” for more games to inflict upon you in the future.
Unlike “THX-1138,” the government will never run out of funds, and you can be detained indefinitely just under suspicion, warranted or not. Read the article Congress lining up behind indefinite detention, for Americans by Bob Unruh.
When all of this happens, you become an “unperson,” to paraphrase Orwell: they’ll freeze your assets, and without the ability to buy with cash, they’ll shut you down economically, forcing you into a corner of their choosing.
Tyler Durden of Zero Hedge just released an article last week entitled Australia Bans Payments over $10 K, Unleashes “Mobile Strike Teams” in War on Cash. This article is very important. Here is an excerpt:
“…lawmakers [in Australia] are intensifying the country’s “war on cash” – ostensibly part of a crackdown on “criminal gangs” that are smuggling drugs and/or people into the island nation and companies that are trying to cheat their taxes. To wit, Australia’s government has introduced an economy-wide payment limit of $10,000 for transactions conducted in cash, which, according to News.au, will help (in the Aussie slang) “keep dishonest tradies and businesses from rorting the system by taking cash in hand.”
From July 1, 2019, cash payments of more than $10,000 made to businesses for goods and services will be banned as the Turnbull Government seeks to crack down on the $50 billion “black economy.”
Perhaps the most – um – striking element of the proposal is the introduction of “mobile strike teams” to catch businesses engaging in the act of conducting an illicit cash transaction.”
The article goes on to describe a “black economy hotline” set up by Australia’s federal law enforcement for people to inform on their neighbors who are conducting any kind of business outside of the taxable sphere. The hotline will be anonymous. And really, now, mobile strike teams to operate? Not against military targets…but businesses? Can you imagine “Chuck E. Cheese” restaurant over there…and half a dozen SAS boys fast-roping in on Slicks to flex-cuff the Mouse, the staff, the parents, and the kids… until they find out if all the pizza has been accounted, paid for, and taxed?
If this is happening now, can you imagine where it will eventually go? There is no “conspiracy theory,” as it is all out in the open, right before our very eyes. This is happening now, and it becomes worse by the day.
Australia just reversed the slogan of the “Outback Steakhouse.” Australia’s slogan now appears to be “No rights, just rule.”
This is all supposed to take effect in July of 2019. Coincidentally, that is about the time that Bill Gates plans with several companies to place 500 satellites into orbit. Those satellites (as detailed in previous articles) will provide real-time surveillance of every inch of the globe about the same time as the Australian law goes into effect.
The problem is that there is no accountability upon the government for such things. Government is the most “sure” business of all. They pass laws, steal with impunity, and in the case of a “discrepancy” that cannot be swept under the rug, they resign before formal charges can be brought against them.
The Financial Crimes Network is strictly concerned with the financial activity of the citizenry…nothing about government officials, the oligarchy, or the police departments at federal, state, or even local level. Many states are now limiting even further the amount of cash that you can withdraw in a day, a week, or a month. If limits are exceeded, they have SAR’s (Suspicious Activity Reports) in place to report those cash transactions.
Why? Because it is all about control, dominion, and keeping the citizens under observation and total surveillance. The Federal Reserve (a private corporation) cannot be audited. The alleged “gold reserves” cannot be tallied or inventoried. There is no transparency and no accountability. Those in power steal billions while passing laws to add to those billions from the sweat of your brow…the double or triple-dipping of inheritance taxes, the property taxes, the income taxes and sales taxes. The taxes on fuel, the regulations, and permits for businesses, residences. The regulations, licenses, stamps, permits, and government-required insurance for automobiles.
Australia provides an excellent example that you can also see happening in every country, including the U.S. We are dealing with people who really believe that they are superior to the populace and as a result are “entitled” to reap the produce of the serfs in order to “organize and mold a better society and world.” No, they really believe that. In addition, they will send out the gendarmes and soldiers to oppress, imprison, or kill anything or anyone that threatens the existing political, economic, religious, and social order of things. The abolition of cash will enable that grip to tighten even further, to fulfill an endgame that most deny but is completely reasonable given the actions of man throughout his history.
