I dont know that we can. not being cynical... it wont happen all at once. it will be pulled back.. then done "temporarily" etc.. sick stuff. will look. best we can do is to own the last remaining stores of value that will exist. gold and Silver will be that much more valuable in this type world

I think I agree. It looks like we will lose and our enemy will succeed in its goals to murder or wirelessly robot control mutate enslave every last person by 2030. I continue to to my best. Storing and using gold and silver might buy more time but will do nothing to stop the enemy, which has well laid plans for all of us? Others have other priorities and better things to do? Looks like the enemy has succeeded and will win? This will take effort and focus to beat. I cannot do it alone. Thanks for your reply. I have long ago done things like what you suggest, they are valid suggestions.

I am afraid they will outlaw ownership of gold or at least attack it from several sides. Like a they are closing the circle around Crypto more and more (Silvergate bank...)

And regarding gold they could have even (mucj) stronger motivation because of China and Russia...

This is not about what I wish, but just contemplating future scenarios. What do you think?

CBDC is simply a surveillance system masquerading as money.

CBCD is a total disaster for freedom & the United States. It’s Unconstitutional ( not that those who have taken the reins of power care). The link that Larry Druhall will be great if enough people would see it & come up with some ideas. So far all I have heard is that if comes about the black market will thrive & bartering will become very popular. I don’t see these two ideas as very positive. I’m hoping enough people wake up to what’s coming & there is enough pushback to stop it. We should all be contacting our Representatives and Senators to let them know that we are totally opposed to this, Governors as well. We have to make a lot of noise to stop this. If the black market & bartering occurs on a massive scale the government will collect NO taxes, no sales tax & will NO money to operate.

BUT how will the energy be provided to run the massive data centres and 5G required to enable minute-by-minute, purchase-by-purchase, real-time monitoring of people's actions?

Not from "renewables", not too much longer from coal, oil, gas.

CBDCs, as envisaged, will result in total failure/destruction of the economy, currently being experienced by China, because there will be no market for "not allowed" goods, and no innovation. There will be no freedom of action, and no freedom of thought, and no freedom of speech. So no one will say what they're thinking, so everyone will give up thinking.

Great article and thought provoking. I agree this is the biggest risk to humanity going forward. If MMT is a prelude to CBDC, then we saw the cashless project start in 2020 with Covid and unrestricted QE as an MMT experiment be tested on us.

Logically CBDCs should have followed fairly closely behind Covid, but it didn't. Why is that? Is it not yet up and running? Is it more complicated than first thought? Does government fear a massive public backlash?

Or

Has the cashless project already started in the West and is being implemented in stages over the next 5-10 years, complete with chip implants? (I heard chip implants will be mandatory in Europe by 2031).

Will wealthy individuals and american oligarchs also get chipped? Will their accounts be controlled by central banks? If not, how is the selection process going to be handled? Because....I suspect there will be a fair bit of pushback (or violence) in the US if wealthy people risk losing their lifestyles.
