Will cash be banned, as recent news items indicate? Let’s flashback to some rather open admissions in the media, in this case from recent years: CNBC pundits and Naval Postgraduate School white paper writers (Turn in Your Bin Ladens, Dec. 2010) float the idea to force the masses onto a creeping, cashless control grid, calling cash the currency of terrorists, drug dealers and criminals. Yes, military figures are equating the use of cash with the War on Terror… that is a gross distortion and a bad sign.
Indeed, even paying cash for a cup of coffee has been branded suspicious by a series of memos put out by the FBI to breed a paranoid atmosphere around normal, everyday activities. Alex Jones parodied this bizarre new Communities Against Terrorism campaign in his documentary New World Order: Blueprint of Madmen(see it free here).
Meanwhile the biggest criminals remain on Wall Street, looting via draconian bailout deals, amassing new global powers and admittedly laundering massive amounts of money for drug gangs. Yet moves have been made to demonize and ban paying for “large” items in cash both in Europe and America, with ‘suspicious’ amounts set as low as 1000 or 2500 (*in dollars, euros, or etc.). Louisiana has gone so far as to ban cash in second hand transactions.
These policies are trending towards total control, not only at the individual level, but in an overall clamp down of society.
