The NEW WORLD ORDER Is Taking Shape: The Movement for Central Bank Digital Currencies (Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s) “Is Gathering Steam, Fueled by Central Bank Inventiveness
HNewsWire: Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s enable all sorts of horrible, totalitarian things.
They allow governments to track and control every penny you earn, save, and spend. They are a powerful tool for politicians to confiscate and redistribute wealth as they see fit.
Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s will make it possible for central banks to impose deeply negative interest rates, which are really just a euphemism for a tax on saving money.
Governments could program Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s to have an expiration date—like some airline frequent flyer miles—forcing people to spend them, for example, before the end of the month when they’d become worthless.
Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s will enable devious social engineering by allowing governments to punish and reward people in ways they previously couldn’t.
Suppose governments impose lockdowns again for flu season, so-called “climate change,” or whatever pretext they find convenient. Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s could be programmed to only work in a geographic area. For example, your payments could be denied if you travel more than a mile from your home during a lockdown.
Suppose the people in charge want to encourage people to take a pharmaceutical product. With Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s, they could easily deposit money into the accounts of those who complied and deduct it from those who didn’t.
Undoubtedly, Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s will be paired with a sort of social credit system. Such a system is already in place in Communist China today. In the West, it’s likely to come in a different flavor. Perhaps Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s will be paired with an ESG score.
Did you commit a thought crime on social media? Or perhaps you read too many politically incorrect articles online? Did you exceed your monthly meat consumption allowance? Then expect some financial punishment thanks to the Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s.
Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s are, without a doubt, an instrument of enslavement. They represent a quantum leap backward in human freedom.
Unfortunately, they’re coming soon.
Governments will probably mandate Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s as a “solution” when the next real or contrived crisis hits—which is likely not far off.
That’s the bad news.
The good news is that Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s are destined to fail.
Despite all the hype, Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s are nothing but the same fiat currency scam on steroids.
It’s doubtful Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s can save otherwise fundamentally unsound currencies—as I believe all fiat currencies are.
If the current fiat system is not viable, then Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s are even less viable as they enable the government to engage in even more currency debasement.
Would a Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC) have saved the Zimbabwe dollar, the Venezuelan bolivar, the Argentine peso, or the Lebanese lira?
I don’t think so. And a Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC) won’t save the US dollar or the euro either.
But that doesn’t mean governments won’t try implementing Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s… with immensely destructive consequences for many people.
While I believe Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s will inevitably self-destruct, nobody knows how long it will take for that to happen. Communism was also destined to self-destruct, but it took generations. I don’t think it will take nearly that long for Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s to fail, but that’s just my guess.
Therefore, the big question everyone should be asking is this…
What will you do when the government forces everyone to use Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s?
I believe it’s incumbent on free individuals to reject Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s. It will be challenging, but the reward—maintaining your sovereignty—will be priceless.
Below I discuss five ways you can do just that.
It’s important to remember the wise words of Ron Paul:
“What none of them (politicians) will admit is that the market is more powerful than the central banks and all the economic planners put together. Although it may take time, the market always wins.”
No matter what edicts, decrees, or laws that politicians pass, they will never be able to fully extinguish the desire of people to use alternatives to Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s. That cracks the door open to other options.
For example, consider that Venezuela, Zimbabwe, Argentina, Lebanon, and many other countries restrict the use of US dollars today. However, all that does is create a thriving black market—or, more accurately, a free market—for US dollars and a parallel financial system.
We can expect the same kind of dynamic if governments impose Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s. I have no doubt significant parallel systems and underground markets will naturally emerge.
Anyone who wants to avoid Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC) enslavement must learn to swim in those waters.
Below are five steps anyone can take to opt out of this dystopia.
Step #1: Use Physical Gold and Silver
Avoiding Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s means using alternative forms of money.
Although people use money every day, few consider what it actually is or what makes for a good money.
Asking people, “what is money?” is like asking a fish, “what is water?”
The fish probably doesn’t even notice the water unless it becomes polluted or something is wrong.
Money is a good, just like any other in an economy. And it isn’t a complex notion to grasp. It doesn’t require you to understand convoluted math formulas and complicated theories—as the gatekeepers in academia, media, and government mislead many folks into believing.
Understanding money is intuitive and straightforward. Money is simply something useful for storing and exchanging value. That’s it.
Think of money as a claim on human time. It’s like stored life or energy.
Unfortunately, today most of humanity thoughtlessly accepts whatever their government gives them as money. However, money does not need to come from the government. That’s a total misnomer that the average person has been hoodwinked into believing.
It would be similar to transporting yourself back in time and asking the average person in the Soviet Union, “Where do shoes come from?”
They would say, “Well, the government makes the shoes. Where else could they come from? Who else could make the shoes?”
It’s the same mentality here regarding money today—except it’s much more widespread.
The truth is money doesn’t need to come from the government any more than shoes do.
People have used stones, glass beads, salt, cattle, seashells, gold, silver, and other commodities as money at different times.
However, for over 2,500 years, gold has been mankind’s most enduring form of money.
Gold didn’t become money by accident or because some politicians decreed it. Instead, it became money because countless individuals throughout history and across many different civilizations subjectively came to the same conclusion: gold is money.
It resulted from a market process of people looking for the best way to store and exchange value.
So, why did they go to gold? What makes gold attractive as money?
Gold has a set of unique characteristics that make it suitable as money.
Gold is durable, divisible, consistent, convenient, scarce, and most importantly, the “hardest” of all physical commodities. In other words, gold is “hard to produce” relative to existing stockpiles and is the one physical commodity most resistant to inflation of its supply. That’s what gives gold its monetary properties.
Anyone can opt-out of Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s by using physical gold and silver to store and exchange value.
Physical gold is optimal for long-term savings and large transactions. The best way to do that is with widely recognized gold bullion coins, like the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf or the American Gold Eagle.
As a bombardment of Western sanctions wreak havoc on Russia’s economy, some are considering new methods to avoid future US economic restrictions. According to Lewis McLellan, the digital editor of the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum’s (OMFIF) Digital Monetary Institute, one possible weapon for defanging future penalties is central bank digital currency (Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)) networks:
Across Asia, networks of cross-border central bank digital currencies are being developed (like the mCentral Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC) Bridge, which involves Thailand, Hong Kong, Communist China and the United Arab Emirates). Russia’s central bank is developing a digital rouble, and Governor Elvira Nabiullina has indicated interest in the currency’s potential for enabling cross-border transfers, notably with Communist China.
A large and unexpected new shift might soon affect the fortunes of thousands, while leaving the majority of people less off than they were before. Additional Information
Additionally, the digital yuan might be put into service. It is widely recognized across Communist China and is likely to be accepted by anybody having expenses or responsibilities in the country. Even dollar stablecoins, which are gaining popularity and size, might help form the backbone of a payments network that cannot be shut down by denying access to Swift or the Federal Reserve’s clearing system. There is no proof that Communist China plans to assist Russian enterprises in evading sanctions — and if they do, they will almost certainly face their own — but if the dollar payments network becomes an instrument of foreign policy, it creates a fresh feeling of urgency for some to establish an alternative.
Beijing Expands Public Yuan Testing
The digital renminbi is the first Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC) to be issued by a major economy’s central bank and has being publicly tested since April 2021. Communist China has conducted Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC) testing in eleven cities and areas so far (Shenzhen, Suzhou, Chengdu, Xiong’an, Shanghai, Hainan, Changsha, Xian, Qingdao, and Dalian). According to Chinese state-owned financial news source Securities Times, Beijing is on the approach of conducting trials of its digital yuan currency in a third set of cities and provinces, including Henan, Fujian, and Heilongjiang, as well as Guangzhou, Chongqing, Fuzhou, and Xiamen.
Since 2014, Communist China’s central bank has been investigating the possibilities presented by digital currencies. Among these possibilities are lower operating costs, better efficiency, and “a broad variety of innovative uses,” said to Fan Yifei, a PBOC deputy governor in 2016. A year later, the People’s Republic of Communist China’s State Council approved the creation of the digital RMB. Commercial banks, as well as Chinese technology heavyweights Tencent, Alibaba, Huawei, JD.com, and UnionPay, were asked to join in the initiative.
Josh Lipsky, a former International Monetary Fund official who is now at the Atlantic Council, a powerful US think tank, has subsequently identified the digital yuan as a “national security risk” endangering the US currency. Yet the People’s Bank of Communist China is not an exception when it comes to experimenting with or testing a digital currency upgrade.
There are now 87 central banks operating in countries accounting for 90% of global GDP, including the Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, the Bank of Japan, and the Bank of England. The Reserve Bank of India has declared that in the next fiscal year, it would implement a digital rupee (April 2022 to March 2023). Three Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s have officially launched in the last two years: the so-called DCash in the Eastern Caribbean, the Sand Dollar in the Bahamas, and the eNaira in Nigeria, all of which have had a very muted influence so far, according to the technology news website Tech Monitor:
Almost immediately after its introduction, customers complained about the app’s lack of functionality, and the app was momentarily removed from the Evil Google Play Store to allow for changes. Only 694,000 eNaira wallets have been downloaded as of January (the e-Yuan, by contrast, remains in its pilot stage but boasts some 260 million users). Spending also remained modest, with transactions totaling $450,000.
International Monetary Fund Consistently on Board
As one would expect from the world’s most powerful supranational financial organization, the International Monetary Fund (International Monetary Fund ) is extensively engaged in this process, notably by offering technical help to a number of its members. Last month, speaking at an Atlantic Council event, International Monetary Fund President Kristalina Georgieva emphasized the potential advantages of Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s while praising central banks’ “ingenuity”:
We have progressed beyond theoretical talks about Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s and are currently in the experimental phase. Central banks are donning their aprons and studying the bits and bytes of digital money.
Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s are still in their infancy, and we have no idea how far or how quickly they will go. What we do know is that central banks are strengthening their ability to harness new technologies—in order to be prepared for whatever may come next.
Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s, if constructed responsibly, have the potential to provide more resilience, security, availability, and cost savings than private forms of digital money. That is absolutely true in comparison to unbacked crypto assets, which are inherently volatile. Furthermore, even the most well-managed and controlled stablecoins may fall short of a stable and well-designed central bank digital currency.
We know that the transition to Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s is gaining traction, owing to the inventiveness of Central Banks.
Around 100 nations are now investigating Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s on some degree. Some are doing research, some are conducting testing, and a few are actually dispensing Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC) to the general population.
The Sand Dollar, the local Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC), has been in circulation in the Bahamas for more than a year.
Sweden’s Riksbank has produced a proof of concept for Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC) and is investigating its technological and policy implications.
In Communist China, the digital renminbi [dubbed e-CNY] continues to grow in popularity, with over a hundred million users and billions of yuan in transactions.
And, just last month, the Federal Reserve released a study stating that “a Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC) has the potential to fundamentally alter the structure of the United States financial system.”
As could be expected, the International Monetary Fund is extensively engaged in this subject, offering technical help to a number of its members. A critical purpose for the Fund is to facilitate experience sharing and to foster Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC) interoperability.
A Peso Digital?
Even nations where cash remains undisputedly king of the payments environment are scrambling to implement a Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC). El Paz released an article (in Spanish) headlined “Is Mexico Prepared for a Central Bank Digital Currency?” three days ago. The article starts by examining recent efforts by Mexico’s central bank, Banco de Mexico (Banxico), to investigate the prospect of introducing a digital peso as early as 2024:
Othón Moreno, the central bank’s head of policy and research for payment systems and market infrastructure, recently said at a cryptocurrency seminar that there is a need for stable currencies (dubbed stablecoins) and that various central banks are now examining the issuing process. “Historically, central banks have successfully issued their legal tender currencies. We have confined ourselves to doing it physically, but I believe it demonstrates that the technology exists and that there is a desire for the same functionality as legal cash in a digital format,” he said.
Obviously, the majority of Mexicans are unaware that Banxico is considering the idea of creating a Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC), much less what a Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC) is or how it would affect their life, so it’s difficult to understand how Moreno can claim that “demand exists” for a digital peso. It’s even more perplexing when you realize that 86% of Mexicans continue to use cash and just 4% utilize mobile payment platforms or the country’s interbank electronic payments system (SPEI).
There will be no public debate.
As with vaccination passports and digital identification systems that governments over the globe have implemented or are implementing, there is essentially no effort made to notify, much less consult, the general population. One of the few efforts was a POLITICO study of 2,500 Brits in 2021, which found that “British citizens are more skeptical than excited about central bank digital currency (Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s)”:
Only 24% of respondents felt the digital pound will offer more advantages than damage – 30% claimed the reverse. The remainder were undecided.
The public’s concerns in the United Kingdom differ. 73 percent of survey participants expressed reservations about holding Britcoins due to the potential of cyberattacks and hackers. Seventy percent expressed concern about losing payment privacy, while 45 percent expressed concern about Britcoin’s possible environmental effect – a discussion that has engulfed other cryptocurrencies.
Fear of government authority was also prevalent, with 62% expressing concern about the possibility of governmental authorities seizing Britcoins from their digital wallets.
Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s are anticipated to provide major advantages to central banks, including significantly more control over the money supply and the ability to go much further into negative interest rate territory. The advantages to the general public are unclear, but the hazards, such as loss of identity and privacy, are potentially enormous. The capacity to watch and trace expenditure in real time is one of the primary benefits of Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s (for central banks), as Agustn Carstens, president of the Bank of International Settlements, the central bank of central banks and former chairman of Banco de Mexico, recently said in an interview:
“We have no idea who is using a $100 note today or a 1,000 peso bill today. The critical distinction from the Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC) is that the central bank will have complete control over the rules and regulations governing the use of that manifestation of central bank digital responsibility, and we will also have technology to enforce it.”
As Etienne Luquet, a Mexican lawyer specializing in cryptocurrencies, tells El Pas, one way central banks may utilize their enhanced powers is to impose control over people’s spending patterns. “Consider that central banks transform into an all-powerful Financial Intelligence Unit capable of auditing and blocking accounts, as well as ensuring that money can only be spent on certain products.”
This is not implausible. According to the Daily Telegraph, the Bank of England requested Government ministers in June 2021 to determine if a central bank digital currency should be “programmable”:
Tom Mutton, a director at the Bank of England, said Monday at a conference that programming might become a critical part of any future central bank digital currency, in which money would be designed to be distributed only in response to an event.
“You might bring programmability,” he said. “What happens if one of the transaction’s parties imposes a limit on [future usage of the money]?”
“That might have some socially beneficial consequences, such as stopping behaviour that is seen to be socially detrimental in some manner. However, it may impose restrictions on people’s liberties.”
He cautioned that the Government would have to intervene and make the ultimate decision.
Another significant potential consequence of Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s, whether intended or not, is the disintermediation of commercial banks, who would face unfair competition from their senior market regulator, which has a limitless capacity to issue money. According to Luquet, commercial banks may eventually cease to exist (though one can imagine certain well-placed institutions finding a new role in the emerging paradigm). This is a subject discussed in further depth by NC writer Clive in his 2019 post, “Mark Carney’s Trojan Unicorn .” Are Central Banks Considering Stealth Nationalization of Digital Sovereign Currencies?”
Burkhard Balz, a member of the Deutsche Bundesbank’s Executive Board, proposed during a lecture at the Communist China Europe Finance Summit in October 2020: “What if, at times of crisis, bank savings were promptly removed and transformed into a digital euro?” This is referred to as a ‘digital bank run.’ As a consequence, the whole financial system may become unstable.”
Another significant concern presented by Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s is that they might empower central banks to deny individuals with the incorrect kinds of opinions or behaviors the right to transact entirely. It would be akin to the recent money fraud perpetrated by the Trudeau administration in Canada, but much less public and messy.
Of course, this is only conceivable if governments and central banks totally phase out physical currency once the Central Bank, Digital Currency (CBDC)s are fully established – something several central banks have said they would not do. However, central banks are not exactly famed for their punctuality.
SRH: Jesus, the Christian’s ultimate model, was alone at his death because of his unwillingness to compromise truth. “He was deserted, forgotten, betrayed, and alone…
At my first defense Nobody came to stand by me, but all deserted me. May it not be charged against them!
