When Cash is no longer King.................from Rico

It has long been argued that all wars are ultimately about money. True or not, it is always worth asking "who benefits?" [CUI BONO]
- So how about asking that about the "War on Cash" then?
Sure, it is a concept 'sold' as preventing crime and bad things done by bad people, and every effort is made to create an effortless, convenient, and easy path to go cashless by TPTB.
- Would they lie? Ask CUI BONO, who benefits? [tip: not YOU.]
1. BANKS. They collect "fee'$" on all card transactions. They also collect more than just your money, but something else that's valuable...your data-trail of purchases, which is pure gold to merchants and marketeers.
- YOU? You lose all privacy.
2. GOVERNMENTS. Your deeply-caring tax man wants to see your electronic money trail (all of it) to monitor your spending and prevent you from 'cheating' them...or doing anything government might not 'approve' of.
- YOU? Try not to think of it as your money.
So what? Electronic payment is easy and fast. What's the big deal when CASH is no longer KING?
- Hope the power never stops because of a natural, or a governmental, disaster.
- Private, legal, transactions become illegal and/or impossible in a cashless economy.
When Banks and Governments kill cash, then you lose the power of cash-in-hand, along with your freedom and privacy.
- All the power, freedom, and privacy at that point belongs to the Banks and the Governments, not YOU.
Now repeat after me: "I'm from the government, and I'm here to gimme all your money."
