This Is Why A Cashless Society Is Dangerous to Individual Freedom and National Sovereignty

Photo credit: www.cashlesssociety.com

Smartly-crafted messages have been ubiquitous regarding the elimination of cash in many developed nations around the world. The standard pitch includes convenience and a way to curb criminal cash transactions. Also, not carrying cash makes you less of a target for a mugging. Or so they say.

Imagine the future: Payments big and small could be made with just a few swipes of your smartphone. Sounds like a cool, cutting-edge no-brainer, right? Besides, we always want to be hip and accepting of new technology.

Well, like de-bugging biased TV advertisements, the truth must be approached by examining what they’re NOT telling you. There’s always a price we pay for convenience. Should we really ditch the all-analog paper for strictly numbers in a computer, without an alternative?

If cash goes the way of the dodo bird, what kind of new criminals will be created?

Renowned hedge fund manager Jim Rickards says you’re only one hacker away from having your bank balance wiped out in a blink of an eye. He points to a February theft of $101 million of the Bangladesh official account from the New York Federal Reserve Bank, one of the most secure banks in the world. To this day, the transaction has not been reversed, and no one has been arrested.

So, looking at the overall landscape, it can be determined that the security of digital-only currency isn’t as rock-solid as it’s purported to be by its pitchmen. And just who are the biggest proponents of a cashless society? It’s the government and big banks, the two most powerful institutions on this planet – and the two entities responsible for what is likely about to become the largest financial meltdown in the history of the world.

Adele Weiss, a European-based consultancy firm specializing in asset protection and the U.S. federal income tax, said:

“We’re not talking about (a meltdown of) just the national government of the United States, we’re talking about states and municipalities within the U.S., and virtually all national governments in the world. The cashless society has already started slowly becoming a reality in a few European countries, and the people need to realize how dangerous it is for their freedom and sovereignty.”

By instituting a currency system entirely based on digital data, it keeps the account holder, and his funds, within the exclusive control of, you guessed it, the government and big banks. Weiss adds,

“This has fueled the interest in alternatives like bitcoin. Although bitcoin is itself cashless, the blockchain technology is not controlled by any one entity, and all transactions are virtually anonymous and must be approved by both the sending and receiving parties. In addition, fees are close to zero.

“The only issue I see for bitcoin right now is that it’s still in its infancy stage. It needs some time to prove itself to the global market. But so far, so good, and its use is being spearheaded in Europe, where the cashless society has advanced the most. It seems Europeans are finally waking up to the immense control grid they live in and are seeking to regain control of their personal life.”

As we’re still learning about bitcoin and payment systems like BitPay, we’re still faced with many obstacles placed in our way by the matrix, the vast overlapping network of information systems run by the government and big banks. Heck, those two have morphed into a solitary unit — we might as well refer to the government and big banks as The Matrix.

Regardless of whether bitcoin is a proven solution or not, people wanting to protect their freedom, privacy and hard-earned wealth need to include other layers of asset protection. The best way to protect one’s sovereignty is to internationalize, which means to establish a personal and/or financial presence outside the United States, and to spread it over several nations.

“We always preach to people to, if possible, have a second citizenship in Country A, reside in Country B, work in Country C and conduct banking in Countries D, E and F,” remarked Weiss, who himself practices this philosophy. “Think of ‘government’ as a sheep-herder, who uses a stick and a dog to steer a group in a desired direction. Internationalization is an antidote for being a sheep.”

Here are some key ways to establish an international financial presence:

Second citizenship: The United States and the tiny African nation of Eritrea are the only countries in the world to tax its sheep regardless of where they reside on earth. The current financial dominance of the United States allows them to pressure other governments to refuse to deal with Americans. Yes, expatriation is a popular option, but internationalization doesn’t entail reducing one’s options but expanding them. There are viable options that cost under $10,000 USD and take less than five years.

IBCs/Trusts: The general idea to promote is to get as many assets out of your name as possible. As famed investor Robert Kiyosaki says: One mistake poor people make is they insist on keeping their assets in their name; rich people know it’s important to NOT do this. This is an excellent consideration for those who currently are, or planning on, deriving income from various sources. You don’t need to be rich to start preparing to become wealthy — IBCs or trusts cost less than $5,000 USD each and most are very private.

International bank accounts: Whether you keep your assets in your name or transfer them to a corporate entity, you need to develop a system that gets your money out of the reach of the U.S. government, which will, when needed, steal it from you (and they have very clever ways of doing so). Good luck getting it back once it disappears. Not only is this a solid solution for asset protection, but non-U.S. banks often pay much higher rates of return on products like CDs and money-market funds. Also, establishing a non-U.S. bank account allows you to transfer and hold currency not named the U.S. Dollar. This can be an important hedge against USD devaluation, which is already underway and should continue until it is no longer the world’s reserve currency.

“In addition to these options, our firm offers the Revocation of Election process, which legally removes American Nationals from the U.S. tax system,” Weiss pointed out. “This is important, especially if you plan to physically remain in the United States, whether you become internationalized or not.”

Weiss’ firm offers clients viable solutions in both asset protection and eliminating the obligation to file and pay a federal income tax. Weiss+Associates boasts over 3,000 clients, many of whom are working toward maximizing their personal financial freedom.

Weiss’ Platinum Level package includes information on all the above options, including the Revocation of Election process, a legal, proven solution to remove oneself from the U.S. tax system. Weiss warns,

“Within the next four years, and possibly as early as this fall, there is going to be a financial storm like we’ve never seen before, and forward-thinking people need to already have the next system in place before it’s needed. The government is trying very hard to limit your options and remain in their matrix. If you continue to choose to be a sheep, you (financially speaking) will at some point become mutton.”
