  1. I hate to be the guy who brings this up, but doesn't all this sound a lot like the mark of the beast? They were aware of the possibility of this kind of dystopia 2,000 years ago and they warned us about it.

  2. The Impossible Trinity

    The impossible trinity (also known as the impossible trilemma or the Unholy Trinity) is a concept in international economics which states that it is impossible to have all three of the following at the same time:

    a fixed foreign exchange rate
    free capital movement (absence of capital controls)
    an independent monetary policy

    Historically in advanced economies, the periods pre-1914 and 1970–2014 were characterized by stable foreign exchange rates and free capital movement, whereas monetary autonomy was limited. The periods 1914–1924 and 1950–1969 had restrictions on capital movement (e.g. capital controls), but exchange rate stability and monetary autonomy.[2][3]


    We are about to give up free capital movement again. It also allows them to tightly control inflation by controlling exactly what you can buy.

    Isn't it great that government don't have to deal with the headache of giving their pesky citizens freedom of choice?
    Of course the fact that they can tightly control some numbers makes it definitely worth it.

  3. "Programming" goes further than this. Remember the term Maajid used "voucher". You are given vouchers. And worse… the vouchers can be programmed to expire. Spend it or lose it. This is how they plan to control inflation… by making you spend, or the money vanishes. You will never save… you will be on an endless deathmarch. You will own nothing, and you will be happy.

    We badly need a decentralised, immutable, permissionless system that is beyond the control of the state. Namely Bitcoin.

    No, not shitcoins who are playing at being decentralised, immutable or permissionless (Ethereum or anything based on it being a perfect example) but are in reality centralised, changed by the authority at will and are merely strutting around wearing the skinsuit of money.

    Bitcoin is the solution.

  4. I honestly fear the idea of not using cash. When i went to America once and found out the big places take cards but not cash i was upset. And that was before i knew the dystopian nature of social credit system.

  5. In regards to benefits, I pay my taxes and I don't dictate what they can and can't spend that money. They have absolutely no right to follow an American style voucher system for benefits as its my money in the first place.

    Plus anyone that's ever dealt with the DWP will tell you how badly that will go as they are universally petty tyrants.

  6. Maajid was somewhat making leaps of logic at times during his chat with Rogan, but he certainly made a very compelling argument. I also think it's fair to say that he was more coming from a place of we should be concerned and very closely examine what all these changes could mean down the road, as opposed to making concrete assertions and accusations. Some people will post the Charlie from It's Always Sunny meme about conspiracy theories in response to Maajid, but again I think he put forward enough evidence to at least make the things he's talking about worthy of investigation and discussion.

  7. Revelation 13 : 16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

  8. It is impossible for any government to create a cryptocurrency because any government that creates one will want to centralize it. Cryptos by definition are decentralized and therefore uncontrollable.

  9. So let's play out a scenario ya? You're an anti-government type and you're speaking ill of El Presidente on social media. So then the government freezes your bank account. No problem, you have Bitcoin! …but you need to pay your rent, you need to buy food, you need to pay your bills. Do all of them take crypto? No. But they damn sure take cash. And today crypto is unblockable. That's true. But what about in 5 years? What about in 10? 15? 20? Are you 100% sure that in 20 years government can't block BitCoin wallets somehow? BECAUSE YOU DAMN SURE BETTER BE! …but cash? People will ALWAYS take cash.

  10. Just tell your elected officials that all their payments to/for their mistresses and all the money flowing under the table will become traceable and eventually a matter of public record.

  11. Read the UK Govt Pandemic Influenza Preparedness Strategy ( 2011) .
    It recommended the exact opposite approaches to , masks , travel, mass gatherings and lockdowns , and advocated vaccines only for the most vulnerable.
    I wonder what ( Bill Gates) could possibly ( World Economic Forum) have happened ( Globalist plot) since then. ?

  12. It can't work for the same reason that barter never works. Money is used to represent your purchasing power. Whatever they use to restrict that, the people will always find some alternative to exercise their purchasing power. For example, here in Australia, the government experimented with special cards issued to people on welfare. They were basically debit cards, but they couldn't be used to buy things like alcohol and tobacco. So what the people did who got them was give them to friends who wanted to buy groceries in exchange for the cash equivalent of the grocery purchase, then use that cash to go and buy alcohol and tobacco. It doesn't work.
