Financial experts predict there is much worse to come. They say get prepared!
The banks and governments are now trying to devise a foolproof system for street people and the unemployed to allow them access to social security payments while living on the streets. The cashless economy is on the way. A recent example of the consequences for an electronically controlled society hit home at the far northern Queensland mining town of Weipa. A green initiative of Rio Tinto is to supplement the town’s diesel-driven power generator by switching over to electricity from a large solar installation the company constructed earlier this year.
When making the switchover the solar system failed and the normal power supply shut down. Woolworths, the only food outlet at Weipa, was forced to close its doors for nearly two hours. People already in the shop were asked to leave and the doors were shut behind them. The cash registers and barcode readers could not function, the refrigeration stopped working, the lights and air conditioning failed. This is how the governments of the future will control a cashless society. When the citizens object to more and more fascist policies of the ALP and LNP, the ‘government’ will force Woolworths, Coles and the banks to drop their security shutters’, turn off the power and without cash to buy produce direct from farmers, people will starve.
If the power is turned off across the city, no EFTPOS machines can work. No cash, no food!
