How To Resist CBDCs – 5 Ways You Can Opt Out of This Dystopian Future

Please read his explanations for each of this suggestions:

Step #1: Use Physical Gold and Silver

Step #2: Obtain Financial Sovereignty With Bitcoin

Step #3: Get Organized Locally

Step #4: Exchange Value for Value

Step #5: Become a Prepper

In this article, Catherine Austin Fitts and Carolyn Betts weigh in on measures one can do, writing, "It is important to recognize that there is a great deal that each one of us can do to take action. In a highly leveraged financial system such as we have, a single individual counts for a lot."

I Want to Stop CBDCs – What Can I Do?


Here are actions that each of us can take:

(1) USE CASH whenever possible—and let everyone know why you are using cash.

(2) NURTURE ANALOG. We want a healthy balance of digital and analog transaction options. What we do not want is an all-digital system—whether it is CBDCs or all of the other digital mechanisms. Some digitization is both healthy and efficient, but an all-digital system—with regards to virtually anything—is vulnerable to central control and manipulation. Roll back your use of digital systems, avoid biometric technology as much as possible, and don’t use QR codes! Get invasive surveillance systems out of your home. Use hard-wired Internet connections, not Wi-Fi, and find other ways to Loosen Technology’s Grip on Your Mind.

(3) SEEK INTEGRITY. Transact with people of integrity, even if to do so appears to cost more. In the end, fraudsters and others who contribute to unhealthy systems through their own greed or lust for power cause untold losses.

(4) BANK AT AN INTIMATE SCALE. Find a good, well-managed local bank or credit union for your banking business.

(5) FINANCE YOUR FRIENDS, NOT YOUR ENEMIES. Start reducing your number of online and digital financial transactions and evolve away whenever possible from relying on or investing in the fintech and credit card companies that are financing and promoting digital IDs, vaccine or health passports, and CBDCs.


7) DEMAND THE NEW YORK FED BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE. Write and call your congressional representatives...

(8) DEMAND THE U.S. EXIT THE WHO. Also ask your congressional representatives to end U.S. membership in the World Health Organization (WHO) and stop financing the WHO with our tax dollars. The WHO, among other unacceptable actions, is using the health care system to institute vaccine passports, which is simply a way of getting the authentication system needed for CBDCs and spatial control.


(10) PROTECT THE SECOND AMENDMENT. It will be hard to legislate and adopt CBDCs in the United States if the population is well armed.

(11) WARN YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS. People need to know what the central bankers are planning...


(13) CELEBRATE THE OPPORTUNITY. Decentralizing financial power can significantly improve our economy. It is a serious opportunity if we can grab it.

States are banning CBDC:

States Are BANNING CBDCs: Florida and Indiana Passed Laws Banning Central Bank Digital Currencies

Sen. Cruz Introduces Legislation to Prohibit the Fed From Establishing a Central Bank Digital Currency

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, today introduced legislation to prohibit the Federal Reserve from developing a direct-to-consumer central bank digital currency which could be used as a financial surveillance tool by the federal government. Sen. Cruz’s bill was cosponsored by Sens. Braun (R-Ind.) and Grassley (R-Iowa).

As countries like China develop CBDCs that omit the benefits and protections of cash, as well as the control and security of many existing digital cryptocurrencies, it is more important than ever to ensure the United States’ digital currency policy protects financial privacy, maintains the dollar’s dominance, and cultivates innovation. CBDCs that fail to adhere to these three basic principles could enable an entity like the Federal Reserve to mobilize itself into a retail bank, collect personally identifiable information on users, and track their transactions indefinitely. It is important to note that while the Fed does not, and should not, have the authority to offer retail bank accounts, it is already looking into what establishing a digital currency would look like.

Unlike decentralized digital currencies like Bitcoin, CBDCs are issued and backed by a government entity and transact on a centralized, permissioned blockchain. Not only would this CBDC model centralize Americans’ financial information, leaving it vulnerable to attack, it could be used as direct surveillance tool into the private transactions of Americans.

Upon introducing the legislation, Sen. Cruz said:

“The federal government has no authority to unilaterally establish a central bank currency. This bill goes a long way in making sure big government doesn’t attempt to centralize or control cryptocurrency and instead, allows it to thrive in the United States. We should be empowering entrepreneurs, enabling innovation, and increasing individual freedom—not stifling it.

*OPPOSING CBDC’s-Actions- taken from video:

Any power not given to Government is the peoples.

Oppose CBDC’s through your states Governor and Legislators, who have the power to refuse digital technology.

How to oppose, execute a plan, a doable, practical plan making contact with your state representatives.

Doing so builds sovereignty which rests with the people and is exercised through representative bodies such as Congress or Parliament. Sovereignty entails hierarchy within the state, as well as external autonomy for states.

Build sovereignty from bottom up, start ing with individuals, then local, then on a federal level being the most important. Opposing CBDC’s in this manner helps dominant power or supreme authority, over your Government. We the people speak out standing against tyranny.

*Networking with locals on your personal level, builds resiliency to inflation. Seek moral folks. farmers, learn to trade with them .

Break the trance by putting down the phone.

Bring transparency as to how money works in a place and how it relates to eco systems.


Crime that pays is crime that stays.

CBDC’s will give Government complete control over your money, telling you how to spend it and how much.

This is herding sheep into a digital concentration camp, corral, to coral or seize, with four completed walls, no escape.

Power absolutely corrupts.

Catherine points out: Look to God for power.

Preacher Allen Jackson points out that doing the same thing over again expecting different results is insanity, in other words change starts with you.

Why not return to God's Perfect LAW in your own life, making a ripple effect of good all around you today fight injustice in your path by living it out thereby putting God FIRST.

Backlash in Ireland

Sort of a case-study: Blashlash from rural, farming communities and the elderly.

Last summer 2022, AIB in Ireland wanted to go cashless - AIB to pull cash services from 70 more branches amid shift to digital banking, stating that “With digital usage soaring, the cost of providing cash services has become increasingly unsustainable.”


AIB abandons plan to remove cash services from 70 branches

AIB has reversed its decision to end cash services at 70 branches around the country.

The move follows a backlash to the move from business groups, consumers, farming and rural organisations and politicians.

In a statement, the bank said that recognising the customer and public unease that it has caused, it had decided not to proceed with the proposed changes.

The lender, which the State owns a majority of, said it will continue to retain its 170-strong branch network in its entirety and will also continue to offer banking services through its relationship with An Post.

Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe said he welcomed AIB's decision not to go ahead with the proposed changes.

In a statement, he said that banks have "a key role in maintaining the flow of cash through the economy and ensuring appropriate access to retail banking services for all in society, including the vulnerable".

Speaking in Donegal, Heather Humphreys said: "AIB have shown a complete disregard for rural communities and have not consulted with them."

Minister Humphreys said she had been "visiting rural communities all over the country" who had been "rightly angry" by AIB's initial announcement.

Also interesting to note is who bailed the bank out:

Speaking on the plinth at Leinster House, Sinn Féin TD Eoin Ó Broin called on Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe to make a statement about the withdrawal of cash services from AIB branches.

“The idea that a bank that has received almost 21 billion euros of taxpayers’ money, that is 60 per cent owned by the State, would treat the public in this way, I think, is shocking.

Paraphrasing an advertising slogan of AIB, Fianna Fáil senator Timmy Dooley said: “AIB purports to back brave, but it’s clear from this decision all they’re backing is their own profit margins.

“By removing cash services from branches, they are leaving rural businesses and rural people in the lurch as they force them to either make more use of online services or to drive long distances to lodge or access cash.

Taoiseach calls on AIB to reconsider making 70 branches cashless

AIB Goes Cashless: What Will This Mean for Older People & Rural Communities | The Tonight Show

In the video, it is mentioned that government officials should ensure some bank operations are preserved and ministers can put "shape" on the banking system.

This summer 2023 - Minister for Finance Michael McGrath’s officials are considering whether legislation should be introduced to require certain types of businesses and sectors to accept cash, as part of a wider review of the State’s payments system.

A Department of Finance review of the state of the banking sector highlighted last year that Irish consumers were already being affected by a growing number of businesses – ranging from cafes to insurance companies – refusing to accept cash in recent times.

“The strategy will set out a roadmap for the future evolution of the entire payments system, taking account of developments in digital payments, cash usage and how future changes should be made to the legislative criteria relating to access to cash,” said Mr McGrath.

“The strategy should also consider whether it should be Government policy that public bodies should accept or facilitate the acceptance of cash for the payment of goods, services, taxes, levies, fees or charge,” it added.

Meanwhile, the department is working on draft laws, expected to be introduced next year, to protect consumers’ access to cash. A key part of the planned legislation will be the oversight of ATMs that are not operated by banks.

Now take a look at this group:

The Eurosystem cash strategy aims to ensure that cash remains widely available and accepted as both a means of payment and a store of value. Cash is an important part of your freedom to choose how to pay. This is essential for the financial inclusion of all groups in society.

Euro banknotes and coins are legal tender in the euro area, and cash is the only form of public money to which everyone can have direct access. The ECB and the national central banks – also known as the Eurosystem – have a fundamental responsibility, together with the banking sector, to ensure the smooth supply of cash and facilitate the use of cash in payments by people and businesses.

Five Ways the Eurosystem Protects the Future of Cash

  1. Ensuring the availability of euro cash

  2. Supporting access to cash services for everyone

Most people in the euro area still prefer to use cash for retail payments. Cash acceptance is therefore a vital part of the payment system and is also in line with its status as legal tender. It allows consumers the freedom to choose how to pay and means that people who do not have access to electronic payments are not disadvantaged.

In Ireland, businesses such as shops and restaurants cannot refuse cash unless both they and the customer have already agreed on another way of paying (for example, if a retailer displays a clearly visible sign indicating that they do not accept cash that the customer should see before transacting with the retailer). Where a business places no restrictions on the means of payment it is prepared to accept, it must accept legal tender when offered by a customer to settle a debt that has arisen.

Is this a loophole for businesses to decline cash - a sign? And would McGrath's suggested legislation close that loophole?

  1. Supporting cash acceptance everywhere
  2. Developing innovative and secure euro banknotes
  3. Keeping banknotes safe and sustainable

The action here would be for rural communities, the elderly, and elderly advocates make sure bank and government officials know their bottom line. Cash counts.

Just to further the Backlash Movement in Ireland...

It seems like social media backlash affected the National Car Test (NCT) wanting to go cashless. Ministers also stepped up:

“People value cash”: NCT comes under fire from TDs for adopting cashless policy

The decision by the National Car Test (NCT) to go cashless has drawn criticism from several TDs, who have slammed it as “unnecessary” and “damaging” – and have called for the vehicle inspection programme to row back on the move.

“We’re saying goodbye to cash!” the NCT shared on social media on Monday. “NCTS are going cashless over the coming months for your safety and convenience, that means payment must be made in advance of attending your NCT. When introduced, payment can be made online or by postal order.”

The announcement sparked an overwhelmingly angry reaction on social media – with over 2,000 ‘anger’ reacts to the post alone on Facebook :rage:.

“You cannot drive unless you get an NCT. The penalty for driving without an NCT certificate is a fine of up to €2,000, and/or up to 5 penalty points and/or imprisonment for up to 3 months. I think this decision is a bit rich coming from the NCT also given that they cannot run their service as properly. Many people have had massive delays over the last year”.

Deputy Nolan was speaking speaking as backlash continued to grow online today among consumers who objected to the proposal, with particular concern being expressed for the older population who may prefer to retain a cash payment option out of necessity and convenience...

“Cash is inclusive. Cash provides a simple payment method for every one irrespective of access to the internet, smart phones or the ability to use technology,” Mr Tóibin said.

Deputy Tóibin pointed to poor phone and internet coverage in many parts of the country, arguing that the move to go cashless would lead to discommoding many people living in rural areas. He also said there are many people who can’t use their phone to make complicated transactions.

“The Central Bank of Ireland states clearly that cash ensures your freedom and autonomy. It states that ‘Banknotes and coins are the only form of money that people can keep without involving a third party. You don’t need access to equipment, the internet or electricity to pay with cash, meaning it can be used when the power is down or if you lose your card’”.

‘Time for national conversation about cash’ says Tóibín as NCT reverses cashless decision

NCT Ireland, which is run by Applus+, announced last week it had made the decision to only accept cashless payments based on “safety and convenience.” A social media post announcing the news sparked thousands of angry reactions, along with pushback from multiple politicians.

“Hundreds of thousands of people, mostly old, young or on low incomes do not have bank accounts. Many businesses do not have card machines. Many people do not have access to sufficient ICT skills, broadband or even mobile phone signals to carry out electronic transactions. We have a duty of care especially with older people so that they remain independent for as long as possible. Making them dependent on their children or neighbours just to transact with the world is wrong,” Mr Tóibín said.

He went on to point out that many people in the services industry rely on cash tips.

“Having cash options available also reduces the danger of systemic electronic crises such as cyber-attacks on banks.

Opponents of cashless payment policies have argued they are discriminatory and driven by banking and government interests. In March, the Rural TD Independent Group put forward a motion which aims to pushback against attempts to go cashless. The motion seeks to ensure the government maintains the provision of cash services.

‘Cash Is Printed Freedom’ – 530,000 Austrians Demanded Right to Cash Payments be Added to Constitution, But They Are Being Betrayed, Says FPÖ

By John Cody

Global Research, June 02, 2023

Remix News 31 May 2023


After 530,000 Austrians signed a referendum petition calling for the right to cash payments to be enshrined in Austria’s constitution in 2022, Austria’s political class is refusing to move forward with adding this legal right, warns the Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ).

“Nowhere else in the world is an everyday life without cash so clearly rejected as in Austria. We see this justified desire of the population, which is reflected in the popular petition ‘For unrestricted cash payment,’ as a concrete work order to the parliament!,” said Finance and Budget Spokesman of the Austrian Freedom Party (FPÖ) Hubert Fuchs during a parliamentary debate.

Although the referendum is not binding, in a country of 8.9 million, the fact that over half a million signed the referendum petition shows a broad level of resistance against the push for digital currencies promoted by central banks across the world and institutions like the World Economic Forum (WEF). It was the 13th most popular referendum in the country’s history. However, the center-right Austrian People’s Party (ÖVP), which has long been said to have backed the right to cash, is now joining the left-wing parties of Austria and blocking all attempts to add this right to the country’s constitution.

FPÖ says ‘cash is freedom’

Fuchs sees the great support for the petition as a clear mandate to the National Council, which is one of the two houses in Austria’s parliament.

“The initiators and supporters of this petition do not just want words of thanks. Rather, it is a concrete request to the National Council to ensure that the federal government finally gets its act together. But let me report from the finance committee: Our motion for the preservation of cash was once again rejected by the ÖVP. So it’s all just lip service and fine words, while these are not followed by action,” said Fuchs.

The ÖVP is reportedly attempting to blame their coalition partners, the Greens, but the FPÖ rejects these claims. Fuchs argues that if “nothing can be brought forward in the country (through legislation), one should step soon again to the ballot box — the republic would be served thereby very much.”

The FPÖ, known for its stance against Russia sanctions and its calls to stop immigration by building “Fortress Austria,” is currently the most popular party in the country, with polls putting it at approximately 27 percent. The party, although conservative, takes a skeptical view of unbridled free market capitalism, and argues that the government must protect against real estate speculators and provide generous cash benefits to encourage Austrians to have more children.

Emmer Introduces Legislation to Prevent Unilateral Fed Control of a U.S. Digital Currency

January 12, 2022

Washington, D.C.— Today, Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) introduced a bill prohibiting the Federal Reserve from issuing a central bank digital currency (CBDC) directly to individuals.

“As other countries, like China, develop CBDCs that fundamentally omit the benefits and protections of cash, it is more important than ever to ensure the United States’ digital currency policy protects financial privacy, maintains the dollar’s dominance, and cultivates innovation. CBDCs that fail to adhere to these three basic principles could enable an entity like the Federal Reserve to mobilize itself into a retail bank, collect personally identifiable information on users, and track their transactions indefinitely,” Emmer said. “Not only would this CBDC model centralize Americans’ financial information, leaving it vulnerable to attack, but it could also be used as a surveillance tool that Americans should never tolerate from their own government.”

“Requiring users to open up an account at the Fed to access a U.S. CBDC would put the Fed on an insidious path akin to China’s digital authoritarianism,” Emmer continued. “It is important to note that the Fed does not, and should not, have the authority to offer retail bank accounts. Regardless, any CBDC implemented by the Fed must be open, permissionless, and private. This means that any digital dollar must be accessible to all, transact on a blockchain that is transparent to all, and maintain the privacy elements of cash”

“In order to maintain the dollar’s status as the world’s reserve currency in a digital age, it is important that the United States lead with a posture that prioritizes innovation and does not aim to compete with the private sector,” Emmer continued.

Cash Matters is a civil society movement, funded by the International Currency Association (ICA), that channels voices that support the existence and relevance of cash as an integral part of the payment landscape now and in future. Cash Matters has been actively and successfully advocating for cash with all stakeholders (industry, politics, central banks, NGOs, society at large) since it was launched in 2017. Cash plays a pivotal role in societies as a pillar of democracy, and is key to personal freedom and independence.

The Cash Matters website provides a resource and library of articles about cash and its relevance for societies around the world for industry, decision-makers and the wider public. Videos tailored to the general public, studies on the most pressing issues around cash and a growing presence on all relevant social media channels round off the movement.

Cash advocates can share Cash Matter Resources with others to help educate them.

They offer banners, post cards, fact cards, promo-videos to share with friends, neighbors, businesses, and officials.

Their facts about the use of cash also counters the "convenience and secure" narrative of those pushing for a cashless society.

One of their videos to share:

DeSantis is so upset about the Fed's and Biden's plan for a CBDC he just got Florida's legislature TO BAN its use in their state.

DeSantis warns of government digital currency

John Stossel talks to Florida governor about the Feds' plan for centralized system.

"Sometimes government does things that may appear to be benevolent but really are kind of like a wolf in sheep's clothing," says Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in my new video. "This is a wolf coming as a wolf."

"If you don't trust central authority," DeSantis says, "then you should see this immediately as something that is very problematic."

Of course, a lot of people do trust central authority. The Biden administration says a CBDC will "protect consumers, investors ... and the environment."

Canada's government used its banking system to control people when truckers protested vaccine rules. The government blocked their bank accounts. That stopped the protests.

I ask, "This will be a national issue. Why is it the business of a governor?"

"This IS PART of our role," he responds, citing federalism. "There's a back and forth between the federal government and the states. We're PUSHING BACK about things we don't think are good."

DeSantis questions the CBDC's legality. "The Federal Reserve has come out and said, We would only do it after 'consulting with the legislative and executive branches. Ideally, we'd get specific congressional authorization. 'Wait a minute! It's not ideal that you get Congress. That's what the Constitution requires!... They want to move to a cashless society, which would basically mean the Federal Reserve, Treasury Department would have supervisory jurisdiction over all of your transactions."

"Cash is independence," adds DeSantis. "You have the cash in your wallet. ... It's not dependent on somebody else."

The federal government, says DeSantis, wants "to displace all cryptocurrency because they can't control that," telling me, "the dangers so far outweigh any proposed benefits."

In this presentation for the CBDC Opt Out Challenge, James explains what you need to know about the CBDC control grid and how we can begin our preparations to overcome it.

What impact does using cash have on small to medium businesses?

  • Businesses save money instantly on transaction fees.
  • They have more control over their profits.
  • If you can help save that business money, they are more likely to keep staff employed and give back to their local community.
  • Small to medium business are an integral part of keeping your local economy and community thriving and growing.

What’s wrong with a cashless society?

  • Cash jobs on the side will no longer be an option, which create economic hardship and higher debt.
  • Tech companies have invested heavily in making electronic transactions secure but hackers are always one step ahead. In a world of 100% electronic payments, the risk of falling victim to fraud rises significantly.
  • If cash dies, your location and purchases will be tracked automatically. You won’t be able to opt out or unsubscribe.
  • If you are on any government funding whatsoever, they could restrict you from spending that money on certain things that the government does not condone.
  • Cash allows you to make anonymous purchases or donations. If cash dies, there will be no such thing.
  • People in abusive situations are often financially reliant on their abuser. If cash is removed, their way out will be that much harder or close to impossible.
  • Elderly, blind and people with disabilities will struggle. Many people can’t or don’t know how to use technology. They would also be vulnerable to scams and other technological difficulties.

What are the technological implications of a cashless society?

  • We will be reliant on technology every day. If you want access to funds, you will need the latest devices and software to enable payments. If you are not a very tech savvy person, this could become a big problem. It is also extremely expensive and inconceivable for some households.
  • You won’t be able to leave your home without some sort of device.
  • Cash protects you from being at the mercy of electronic forms of payments during power outages and looming high energy costs.


Austrian chancellor makes cash pledge

The right to use cash for payments should be enshrined in the Austrian constitution, Chancellor Karl Nehammer believes

The ability to use cash for payments instead of banking cards or digital currencies should become a constitutional right in Austria, Chancellor Karl Nehammer has said.

The chancellor argued cash remains an extremely popular means of payment in Austria, and the country’s people should have a “right to cash.”

“Pocket money for the child. The rainy day reserve at home. The money in the wallet just in case. In Austria alone, €47 billion is withdrawn from ATMs every year, and on average, every Austrian carries €102 in cash. Cash plays an important role in our everyday lives,” Nehammer said in a statement on social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter. The chancellor added that he was committed to *“ensuring that cash is constitutionally protected as a means of payment.

  1. Remember the Sabbath and KEEP it Holy. It is NOT wrong to do GOOD deeds on the Sabbath. The Sabbath was made for man. Man was not made for the Sabbath.


25:8 And thou shalt number seven Sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven Sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years.

25:9 Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of The Jubile to sound on the tenth [day] of the seventh month, in The Day of Atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.

25:10 And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim Liberty throughout [all] the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.

25:11 A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather [the grapes] in it of thy vine undressed.

25:12 For it [is] The Jubile; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field.

25:13 In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession.

25:14 And if thou sell ought unto thy neighbour, or buyest [ought] of thy neighbour's hand, ye shall not oppress one another:

25:15 According to the number of years after The Jubile thou shalt buy of thy neighbour, [and] according unto the number of years of the fruits he shall sell unto thee:

25:16 According to the multitude of years thou shalt increase the price thereof, and according to the fewness of years thou shalt diminish the price of it: for [according] to the number [of the years] of the fruits doth he sell unto thee.

25:17 Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt fear thy God: for I [am] the "I AM" your God.

25:18 Wherefore ye shall do My Statutes, and keep My Judgments, and do them; and ye shall dwell in the land in safety.

25:19 And the land shall yield her fruit, and ye shall eat your fill, and dwell therein in safety.


25:23 The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land [is] Mine; for ye [are] strangers and sojourners with Me.

25:24 And in all the land of your possession ye shall grant a redemption for the land.

25:25 If thy brother be waxen poor, and hath sold away [some] of his possession, and if any of his kin come to redeem it, then shall he redeem that which his brother sold.

25:26 And if the man have none to redeem it, and himself be able to redeem it;

25:27 Then let him count the years of the sale thereof, and restore the overplus unto the man to whom he sold it; that he may return unto his possession.

25:28 But if he be not able to restore [it] to him, then that which is sold shall remain in the hand of him that hath bought it until the year of jubile: and in The Jubile it shall go out, and he shall return unto his possession.

25:29 And if a man sell a dwelling house in a walled city, then he may redeem it within a whole year after it is sold; [within] a full year may he redeem it.

25:30 And if it be not redeemed within the space of a full year, then the house that [is] in the walled city shall be established for ever to him that bought it throughout his generations: it shall not go out in The Jubile.

25:31 But the houses of the villages which have no wall round about them shall be counted as the fields of the country: they may be redeemed, and they shall go out in The Jubile.

25:32 Notwithstanding the cities of the Levites, [and] the houses of the cities of their possession, may the Levites redeem at any time.

25:33 And if a man purchase of the Levites, then the house that was sold, and the city of his possession, shall go out in [The year of] Jubile: for the houses of the cities of the Levites [are] their possession among the children of Israel.

25:34 But the field of the suburbs of their cities may not be sold; for it [is] their perpetual possession.

25:35 And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: [yea, though he be] a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee.

25:36 Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God; that thy brother may live with thee.

25:37 Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him thy victuals for increase.

25:38 I [am] the "I AM" your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan, [and] to be your God.

25:39 And if thy brother [that dwelleth] by thee be waxen poor, and be sold unto thee; thou shalt not compel him to serve as a bondservant:

25:40 [But] as an hired servant, [and] as a sojourner, he shall be with thee, [and] shall serve thee unto The Year of Jubile:

25:41 And [then] shall he depart from thee, [both] he and his children with him, and shall return unto his own family, and unto the possession of his fathers shall he return.

25:42 For they [are] My servants, which I brought forth out of the land of Egypt: they shall not be sold as bondmen.

CBDC: Huge blow as several states in the US ban the digital currency

The CBDC (Central Bank Digital Currency) has been banned in two of the biggest states in the US which will put the entire idea of a digital currency in the bin where it belongs.

Florida had already banned the thought of a digital currency and now Texas has followed along with Louisiana, Alabama and North Dakota.

UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak will be watching closely as its expected more states in the US will follow and ban digital currency due to several factors such as security and elderly and vulnerable people need cash, some pensioners do not even know how to work a computer!

If a digital currency exists even with the best security in the world, it will be prone to outages meaning people will not be able to do anything! everyone would be stranded, it will be a huge target for scammers.

A CBDC would also mean the government would be able to track what you are doing and sooner or later will start to restrict your money which is one of the biggest concerns in the US.

Here in the UK we are seeing banks vanish from the high street at a fairly fast pace, the government trying to buy time telling people they will make sure banks set up hubs, or telling people to use post offices for cash withdrawals.

Do not buy either what the government of the Bank of England are saying that a digital currency will work side by side with cash, since by then hardly any banks will be around getting your hands on cash will be restricted.

We see some shops including Manchester United Megastore only accepting card payments, the more this continues the more cash will not be accepted and so for all of us the only way to buy food and other items as normal is to use card payments of your mobile phone.

It is great the US states are blocking the move to a cashless society and we must follow them, the way to stop a digital currency is to only use cash, if a store says card payments only do not accept it and use another store, the more people accept card payments the more the government and the Bank of England will believe the digital currency will be popular.

Whilst many people find card and mobile phone payments a breeze at this time, once operational fully all your transactions then will be tracked and as stated could be restricted at some point in the future and you wouldn’t have a bank to go to or anywhere to complain about it.

By also using these payment methods now you are also putting at risk tens of thousands of elderly people and vulnerable adults who need cash and these are the facts! we ask you to not be using your card or your phone unless you really need to.

GB News gained over 300k signatures to stop a digital currency recently which was a superb effort and one we fully back! you can add your signature and learn more about the appeal here: Don't Kill cash - Sign our petition to save cash now

Backlash in Australia and lessons from Sweden and Zimbabwe


This article on Tottsnews is mostly it's about backlash in Australia. The end of the article gives two failed examples from Sweden and Zimbabwe.

Slowing the sprint towards a cashless society

Woolworths will scrap a controversial 'cash-free store' trial, following public backlash over the move - just months after the cash ban was defeated in parliament. Is the era of cash really ending, or is there still room to turn the tide?

Woolworths Metro general manager said despite most Metro customers choosing to pay with cards, cash remains important to others for “a whole range of reasons we didn’t fully appreciate”.

While ecommerce is expected to grow - "cash is not out of the fight yet, with a passionate portion of Australia’s population continuing to campaign for the protection of the legal tender.

Outside of PR reports and mainstream propaganda, it seems like people are not ready to let go off cash just yet and are becoming fed up with vanishing options to use it.

Legislation Defeated:

A bill proposed by Australian lawmakers to ban the use of cash for transactions over $10,000 was defeated by a unanimous senate vote in December. CPA Australia tax experts said the government’s claim the ban was needed to deal with the ‘black economy’ simply didn’t take into account the effects it would have on small business.

The Reserve Bank of Australia found that while contactless payments were snaring purchases less than $10 from cash, the Aussies who were defined as “heavy cash users” remained so. The report added: “The most common reasons for preferring cash were for budgeting or financial management purposes, and a preference for cash for smaller transactions.”

Sweden and Zimbabwe

The experiences of Sweden and Zimbabwe, two very different countries that have gone much farther down the path to a cashless society, highlight the pitfalls of such thinking.

New legislation in Sweden:

Sweden shows the need to safeguard access to cash. Zimbabwe shows the importance of the transition not being forced. Over the past few years Swedes have been increasingly concerned about the elderly, those living in rural areas and people from migrant backgrounds being left behind by businesses switching to Swish no longer accepting cash. Last year all but one of Sweden’s political parties supported new laws requiring Sweden’s major banks to continue to offer cash services across the country.

The lesson from Zimbabwe’s experience with cashless transactions is rather different. It’s about the importance of the move to cashless being voluntary, and occurring organically. It was neither wanted, nor particularly welcomed.

What remains is a country tainted by distrust in financial institutions and the value of all money, leading to increases in crime and genuine black market activities. “Bad cash is better than good plastic!”, as one street trader in Bulawayo (Zimbabwe’s second-largest city) told me.
