Why We Must Keep Using Cash

Vernon Coleman

One of the aims of Agenda 21 is to get rid of cash and replace it with digital money. This will make life much easier for the banks and for governments who will, with a few keystrokes, be able to separate dissidents from their money.

Early in 2020, it was suggested that a taxi driver had died because he had come into contact with cash contaminated with a virus. There was, of course, no evidence for this.

Later, researchers showed that the virus in the news could survive for 28 days on surfaces such as bank notes. This discovery was given huge publicity and used as evidence that we shouldn’t use cash but should rely on credit cards and credit card machines (which, of course, do not ever get contaminated).

What no journalists bothered to mention was that the experiment was conducted in the dark and that ultraviolet light kills the virus.

On the same day as I read about this piece of nonsense, a report by Which? magazine showed that consumers were having difficulty buying essential foodstuffs because shops were refusing to accept banknotes and coins.

By early 2021, the shortage of shops willing to accept cash had become a real problem for the millions of people who (for one reason or another) do not have a credit card and do not have access to the internet.

People had become accustomed to paying for things and services with their credit cards or mobile telephones, and the events of 2020 pushed cash further into the background. Cashpoints will soon be as uncommon as telephone boxes. This is the future.

Cash gives us freedom so you can see why they are so keen to get rid of it. Besides, the ubiquitous Bill Gates has a patent on a method of controlling digital currency and human body functions. The ‘Better than Cash Alliance’, lobbying for, among other things, an end to cash, was partly funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Governments everywhere want to eradicate cash and replace it with digital money. Helped by the mass media, they are using the new excuse to force us all to stop using real money and, instead, to pay for everything with credit cards or phone Apps. In China, 85% of all transactions are already done by mobile phone.

Despite the fact that governments and banks persistently claim that cash carries disease, the risk is no greater than it has always been. All you need to do is wash your hands after handling cash.

And cash gives us freedom and privacy. Below are some facts explaining why cash is vital.

Cash gives us freedom of movement and behaviour. Without cash ‘they’ will be able to track our every move. They will always know where we are, what we are buying and what we are doing. Privacy will be gone.

Cash helps teach children the value of money. It gives a sense of reality and the importance of money.

Cash helps stop people going into debt.

Many people rely on cash and without it will be unable to buy food. Nearly one in five people in Britain relies on cash and would struggle to survive without it. The millions (including the elderly and the homeless) who do not have bank accounts, or access to the internet, would find life impossible.

Cash may be vulnerable to thieves but if you lose your wallet or purse, all you lose is the cash you were carrying. Using a phone or plastic card for every transaction means that your details are at greater risk of being stolen. If your phone or plastic cards are stolen you can lose everything – including your identity.

When cash has disappeared, banks may charge a transaction fee for every item bought – and, possibly, for every item sold.

If you rely entirely on credit cards the banks will be able to cut off your access to your money very easily. If you misbehave you will be denied access to your own money. If, for example, you are a diabetic, the authorities will be able to prevent you from buying sweet foods. It will be easy to prohibit the sale of certain items – such as alcohol. If you are considered a troublemaker you will be prevented from travelling.

The immediate aim is to get rid of plastic cards and replace them with a universal phone App – so that all financial transactions have to be managed by phone. The medium term plan is to replace phone Apps with implanted chips which will make us all slaves to an electronic system. Implanted chips are already being trialled. Eventually, the implanted chips will contain every bit of information about you. It will be possible to turn these chips ‘off’ in an instant from afar.

Without cash, and by forcing us to keep all our money in banks, the big banks will be able to extend negative interest rates.

Shops which ban cash are excluding many citizens and helping to remove our basic freedom and privacy rights. To keep cash alive, we should all insist on paying with cash whenever possible. And we should try to avoid stores which refuse to accept cash.
