HOW TO resist the move to a cashless, digital economy
The best way to resist the move to a cashless, digital economy is by using cash whenever possible, and encouraging others to do so, too.
Remind people, especially small business owners, that cash is much more dependable than electronic systems, and can be used when the Internet is down, when there is a power outage, when the card reader breaks down, and even when your smart phone's battery is dead.
Remind people, especially small business owners, that cash doesn't have transaction fees. That's right! When cash is used, there are no bank fees! (No wonder the banks want to stop cash transactions.)
Remind people, especially small business owners, that customers paying in cash are supporting local businesses, rather than Big Banks.
Going 100% cash only all the time is probably not possible for most people, but we can and should go cash only when it is possible to do so.
Ad: The Evil Twins of Technocracy and Transhumanism, by Patrick M. Wood. Technocracy wants to rule the earth in a panopticon of scientific dictatorship. Transhumanists want to live forever and become omniscient. Both are mechanistic systems that see nature as something to be studied, manipulated and conquered. Both see themselves as the new intelligent designers of the world, including humans. Both seek to craft a future for planet earth that nobody asked for, voted for or wanted. Technocracy transforms the structure and economic system of the world, while Transhumanism transforms the people who live there.
