Central Bank Digital Currencies are the Bullet Train to Digital Concentration Camps​


“If you can move every human into a digital concentration camp, empty their bank account any time you want, and tell them what they can and cannot spend money on, you've got complete control."

"Freedom's just another word for 'nothing left to lose'." Once you take everything from someone, do you have complete control over them... or have you ejected them into utter freedom?

The danger is real; but it won't go as they like.

If all the government issues is "digital" currencies (electronic scrip) then other types of trade, barter, and money, will take place. They can outlaw other money; but if we're all in prison, how much control can they have over us? It's like declaring everyone an enemy of the state - the sheer numbers and universality of it will be meaningless.

Where we will be is a situation where virtually all trade except for basic goods (probably supplied by the State) will be forbidden. Commerce outlawed. Well, we saw how that went in the USSR, in Cuba, in Haiti, in North Korea and North Vietnam.

Among other problems, will be, there won't be anything TO sell. Prisoners don't work productively. Haiti and Cuba demonstrate, there won't even be enough basic foodstuffs to spend that Digi-Scrip on.

We may starve but they won't have total control. The only question will be if we'll sit and take it like an Indochinese sheeple, or if we'll revolt like men.

As Gerald Celente puts it, "When you've got nothing left to lose, you lose it."

What percentage of the US population is actively owning physical gold? This should give you an idea of what percentage will refuse to participate in CBDC.

They may have to learn the hard way.

Now. What percentage of the population, any population, is born with money? Not much.

People GET it. When money is seen as desirable, they accept it in favor of barter. Free Markets are a fine "Redistribution" tool.

When gold is seen as money, good money, as opposed to government e-scrip with its niggardly restrictions...people will do things for it. Work for it. Barter for it. Save it. Price things in it.
