Abolishing Cash – New Age of Economic Totalitarianism
by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics
Europe is moving full speed ahead to eliminate all cash. Instead of reforming and tackling the economic problems, government always seeks to maintain the same course of thinking that now leads us to the totalitarian approach coming from Brussels. To maintain the euro, they must maintain the banks. However, the bank reserves are debts of all member states. As government becomes insolvent as in Greece, the banking system is undermined. The only way to prevent the banking collapse is to prevent people from withdrawing cash. Hence, we see this trend is surfacing in all the mainstream press to get the people ready for what is coming after 2015.75 – the elimination of cash. We are even starting to see this advocated in parts of Germany. We will not be able to buy or sell anything without government approval. That is where we are going, and it may be the major event that erupts after 2015.75.
The bail-in that took place in Cyprus managed to get away without bloodshed. The people just took it. This has encouraged governments everywhere, since now they know they can safely do the same thing and the people are like sheep – dumb and stupid. Just how much will society take before they say no?
