There have been quite a few newspaper articles recently and during the course of 2017 which report on the arising of the cashless society, most notably in China. This apparently is linked to the very widespread use of smartphones in that country and the general Chinese dislike and aversion to credit cards and debt generally. It is thus the smartphone which is the engine for change in China and is being used to replace the everyday use of cash. Incredibly even beggars are accepting donations this way!
Over recent months I have commented on the cashless society and how new technology is being used to expand and accelerate its spread throughout the world-not just in the 'west'. I have also made the link between smartphones, the cashless society and the 'mark of the beast'. The way in which smartphones are used increasingly for this purpose, most especially in China demonstrate that I was correct in taking this position. China is of course a communist country despite having a market economy and millionaires! So naturally we would expect any system that logs everything that we buy, sell or do to be welcome in such a society. Here in the 'west' we may call ourselves 'free' but the reality is very different. Instead we have the illusion of 'freedom' and 'democracy' but such 'rights' and 'freedoms' are tightly controlled by the elite and their methods of ensuring the compliance of the sheeple are no less ruthless.
The Police, intelligence agencies and the military are not here to protect the masses but the elite and the government is certainly not above breaking the law as it has been doing for decades with the illegal collection of mass Internet data and mass surveillance of the population which it has been doing through the GCHQ agency and in cahoots with the U.S. government at the well known American spy base in Menwith Hill, Harrogate in the old West Riding of Yorkshire (the famous 'golf balls'). As in China the British government and its various executive agencies, some of which are so secret that their existence is not admitted to, their aim is the protection of the elite, their wealth and maintenance of power. The only difference is that the methods are more covert. Political assassinations are not unknown. The two most famous examples are that of Rudolf Hess in 1989 and the weapons expert Dr David Kelly in 2003. The fact that Dr Kelly was assassinated and did not commit suicide is openly admitted by 'sources' within the British intelligence community but the blame is shifted onto the French! Those of my readers who have seen the excellent and English made film, Defence of the Realm (1985) will know where I am coming from with this argument. Although this film was allegedly based upon fictional events it does in my opinion demonstrate the hypocrisy of the British state and the ruthlessness of some of its more secret agencies.
Returning to the main subject of this article, churches in England have started to introduce cashless donations for their congregations, completely ignoring what their own scriptures, the Book of Revelation has to say on the subject!
We should not be surprised by this as the Church of England pays little attention to what their god has revealed in their bible and like the monarchy is essentially a capitalist enterprise, more concerned with raising more money for its already bloated coffers than 'saving souls'. Churches are pioneering text giving to encourage cashless congregations to donate
However what the church has failed to take into consideration is that the majority of their dwindling congregations are old people who are less likely to use new technology for this purpose but what is significant here is the symbolism of the Church of England pushing the mark of the beast upon its congregations instead of preaching out against it! However the Church of England should not be considered as a 'pioneer' of this form of giving as churches in Sweden have been doing it for years!Sweden could be the first country to go cashless as even churches are taking cards for offerings
The recent introduction of the 'Tap and Pay' debit card encourages the use of a card for minor purchases instead of cash, yet another stepping stone to the introduction of a cashless society and a way of reducing the use of cash for small purchases. The fact that these cards make it easier for fraud to occur does not seem to worry the banks, making you realise that the people who control the banks have in line with other members of organisations like the Bilderberg group, the sinister goal of creating a one world government. Not surprisingly one of the main agenda topics for the 2015 Bilderbergers' conference was artificial intelligence and the promotion of the cashless society. AI & Cashless Society: Top Bilderbergers' Agenda
One of the significant aspects of this and I dare say other Bilderbergers' conferences is the way in which these unaccountable members of Europe's and North America's elite seem to have special privileges, privileges that are denied to the rest of us mere mortals. The Austrian government used (misused) its anti-terrorist squad and 2,100 Police Officers to protect these bastards and a no-fly zone was imposed upon the area around the hotel. No other 'private' gathering gets this kind of protection, demonstrating the lie that in a 'democracy' we are all supposed to be 'equal'!
Despite these gatherings of top politicians, generals, industrialists, bankers, publishers, economists, academics every year since its inception in 1954 their meetings are held in secret, no minutes are kept and no press conferences given. Bearing in mind that political representatives, foreign ministers, prime ministers and presidents have been known to attend these gatherings one has to question why this obvious and extremely high level of political lobbying has not come under the scrutiny of western parliaments! What the Chairwoman of the BBC Trust was doing there must raise serious questions about the supposed and much lauded 'impartiality' of the BBC, a quasi government controlled body which is entirely funded by British TV licence fee payers! One must also question why the former British Chancellor of the Exchequer and First Secretary of State, George Gideon Osborne was in attendance and did he have the permission and even blessing of David Cameron?
