Political Information Why Don’t We Get Rid of Families and Cash ? Soros-funded progressive globalists using Covid-19 to push own ‘technocratic solutions’

Technocratic activists are full of solutions to the coronavirus crisis - the same panaceas they've been pushing for years. What problem wouldn't be solved by abolishing the family, privacy, and other things we take for granted?!
Under the time-honored rubric of "never let a good crisis go to waste," the usual suspects have come out of the woodwork to tout their favored "solutions" as answers to the coronavirus pandemic and the attendant economic crisis. Of course, they've been pushing these initiatives for years, and there's a reason (or three) that they haven't been terribly popular - they'd require completely upending current societal models, and few have the stomach for such fundamental change.
But desperate times call for desperate measures. Surely there's something of value in these revolutionary projects? Let's have a look, shall we...
On the surface, doing away with physical currency in the middle of an epidemic would seem to make sense. Common wisdom holds that banknotes are dirty, and it's logical to think that they might spread disease. Reports that China was "quarantining" shipments of cash, coupled with a World Health Organization advisory to use contactless payments wherever possible in order to avoid spreading coronavirus, have gone a long way toward manufacturing consent for the concept of dropping cash altogether.
However, MIT Tech Review found no real evidence that cash has been a vector for coronavirus, having queried several microbiologists to get to the bottom of the matter. That won't stop proponents of the cashless society from pushing the theory, of course, but it does take the wind out of their sails (and perhaps their sales). There's a lot of energy behind the movement to take the economy off cash - technocratic heavyweights like the World Economic Forum, former Bank of England chief Mark Carney, and of course Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg have all invested serious resources in such a project. The idea is already gaining mainstream currency (no pun intended): a "digital dollar" provision made its way into the US' must-pass coronavirus stimulus bill. While it was ultimately removed, cashless society proponents have continued championing it, reasoning that it's the quickest way of getting the stimulus money into Americans' hands. As the Federal Reserve pours trillions of dollars conjured out of thin air into the economy, it seems only fitting that Americans will increasingly embrace using imaginary money to represent imaginary value.
The coronavirus pandemic has been seized upon by the climate-change industrial complex as proof that the world must transition away from fossil fuels. As the price of oil has plummeted alongside the generally-collapsing markets, promoters of renewable energy have shifted their appeals from pleading for the planet to pleading for investors' pocketbooks. Why pour money into volatile oil companies when you can have steady profits with wind and solar? Imperial College's Dr. Charles Donovan, one of the loudest voices calling for a coronavirus-inspired shift to renewables, admitted to Forbes that a renewable energy economy wouldn't prevent the next pandemic, or even speed recovery from the current one, but papered over that gap with platitudes about "resilience" and the "big picture."
There's certainly something to be said for taking stimulus money earmarked for shale drillers whose operations were already in the red pre-coronavirus and investing it in renewables, especially because it's very likely that air pollution has contributed to the high number of coronavirus deaths in areas like northern Italy and Hubei province. However, there's a dark side to Donovan's call for decarbonization. Making bailouts contingent on implementing "low-carbon transitions" is holding industry hostage to an agenda in a way that ensures rushed, poorly-thought-out decisions will be made in the name of expediency. Some climate campaigners have even hinted this is their desired outcome, frankly admitting that the dramatic changes ushered in overnight to fight the epidemic mean equally dramatic change is possible in the service of crafting their preferred green future. "Decarbonize in haste, repent in leisure" could save the planet, or destroy what remains of industry post-coronavirus - either way, it's not something to be undertaken from a point of panic.
As coronavirus-related legislation peels back the privacy protections once enshrined in law, some activists believe we should dispense with this antiquated notion altogether and just embrace the microchip. Bill Gates has been an enthusiastic promoter of the idea, casually bringing it up during a Reddit 'Ask Me Anything' in response to an unrelated question. The Microsoft billionaire-turned-'philanthropist' responded to a question about how governments might decide what businesses are "essential" during a crisis by suggesting the use of "digital certificates to show who has recovered or been tested recently or when we have a vaccine who has received it." Whoa there, buddy. Gates has funded research into "quantum-dot tattoos" that simultaneously vaccinate and leave a record of the vaccination, allowing recipients of the shot to be identified as such after the fact. He also backs the ID2020 initiative, which late last year announced plans to implant biometric ID technology in babies born in Bangladesh and homeless people in Austin, Texas. Articles about the dystopian initiative recently had a disclaimer slapped on warning that the program is "not [intended] to track individuals, as claimed by some conspiracy theorists." Gee, that's a relief!
Meanwhile, multiple tech companies, including Google, the surveillance state cheerleaders at Palantir, and (reportedly) the global mobile phone industry itself are at various stages of rolling out programs to track the spread of coronavirus using location data collected from people's phones. The data is supposedly anonymized, but given tech companies' abysmal history of paying lip service to privacy while feeding users' data to government agencies - to say nothing of catastrophic leaks - I think we can be forgiven for urging caution before rushing headlong into this particular Brave New World.
The coronavirus crisis is unprecedented in the amount of disruption it has caused, and outlandish manifestos are to be expected. But the call to abolish the family 'because coronavirus', published by OpenDemocracy, is in a class by itself. The writer, Sophie Lewis, seems appalled at the idea of families self-isolating together, because family homes are "fundamentally unsafe" spaces rife with inequality. The existence of abusive relationships is held up as proof that the family itself is an oppressive structure, while housework is likened to psychological torture. Instead, she calls on society to fling open the doors of prisons and detention centers and house the inhabitants in their "private palaces."
It may be easy to dismiss as extreme a view that "the private family qua mode of social reproduction still, frankly, sucks. It genders, nationalizes and races us. It norms us for productive work. It makes us believe we are 'individuals.'" But this isn't just a personal blog, or some antifa kid's Tumblr - this is an outlet sponsored by some very influential organizations, including George Soros' Open Society Foundations. Clearly it had to go through some kind of editorial approval before being published. "Social distancing" aside, there's no logical reason coronavirus should make us put aside our family ties, and one has to wonder why an outlet like this is okay with calling on others to discard the parts of life that - for most of us - make it worth living.

Ron: Please listen carefully to this video and think about its implications Pilgrims.The banksters who rule this planet are seeking to tighten their grip on power by eliminating physical money, ie cash, in the hands of the population. As usual they seek to make this change incrementally so that their sleep walking wage and Welfare slaves do not notice the the Police state laws slowly strangling the liberty and life out of them.
Think about it. The Commonwealth of Australia is a private corporation owned by banksters and listed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission. They fraudulently purport to rule Australians using an unlawful political apparatus under colour of a FAUX Constitution which is no Constitution at all. Why? because it is merely part of a British Imperial statute which, prima facie, can be altered at any time by the UK Parliament which is covertly controlled by the banksters in the City of London.
The Australian government already requires employees to have bank accounts into which their salaries and wages must be paid. That already constitutes an unlawful infringement on the sovereign rights of Australians. It also amounts to forcing Australians to subsidise banks.
This legislation will further force Australians to put their money into banks, at least whenever they want to conduct substantial transactions. Currently the Australian Reserve Bank has reduced the benchmark loan rate to the 0.25% - 0.5%. Moreover it is likely that that lending rate could soon become negative, ie people having money in the bank will have to pay the bank for the privilege. THUS this legislation will force Australians to put their money into banks and then be forced to pay those banks interest thereon as well as banks fees. One has to wonder whether why Australians continue to put up with such covert fascism.
Australians and people in many other nations need to be aware that money (however described) held in banks can be stolen at ANYTIME by the banksters because many governments have already legislatedg for the "BAIL IN" of the money in bank accounts where the bank is facing bankruptcy due to insufficient shareholder funds.
This legislation signals that the banksters and their political puppets are not satisfied with their current death grip on Australians. They now want to slowly wean Australians off using physical currency so that they are forced to use banks and eventually so that once they legislate for a cashless economy in which all currency is digital, the population will be become puppets on an electronic string which those who control the banks can use to snuff the life out of any recalcitrant individual with a few keystrokes in a computer in the City of London.THAT'S what the Jews' New World Order, One World Government will mean Pilgrims.
This legislation is merely part of a"full court press" by global banksters and their puppet governments to move humans here into a cashless economy. Already most cash transactions in Australia are done electronically BUT until physical currency is outlawed and removed from circulation it still represents a safety valve for Australians who seek to retain some autonomy. See eg:
An electronic cashless system makes the entire population hostage to continuation of availability of the electricity supply and properly functioning electronic banking systems. Worse still, a cashless system would enable banks (and governments if they control the banks) to steal money (electronic credits) and/or terminate access to the electronic system, turning the person(s) whose access is terminated into outlaw(s), unable to purchase anything. In effect that would be a death sentence and so it would constitute a mechanism for total control and enslavement which could be used to starve and eliminate people.
In other words, apart from stealing your "money" those controlling the banks can starve you to death by using key stroke that make your "monetary deposit" INACCESSABLE TO YOU.
Be aware that a cashless society is not a moneyless society in which everyone in the community contributes according to ability and as needed, and the community as a whole "owns", ie is the guardian for, the planet's God given resources. That means that, among other things, each community as a whole, takes care of ALL its members and is the responsible guardian and controller of all relevant available physical planetary resources and the technologies, robots, machines and human resources needed to sustain everyone in abundance while preserving the integrity and ecology of its locale on the planet. Such societies will develop in due course, once humanity evolves in consciousness and integrity. But unfortunately, we are not there yet.
Currently private individuals purport to "OWN" the corporations and governments that "OWN" the planet's physical resources and the factories, technologies, machines and intellectual property etc that could be used to produce abundance for all but they only produce what they require for their own use and benefit, and/or can sell for a profit. As private individuals and their corporations (including governments) currently "own" the resources from which abundance is produced, a cashless society will have the opposite effect from a "moneyless" society because the money meme will remain dominant and accordingly everyone will be required to remain a free range serf; ie a wage slave dependant on employment, welfare payments or other "charity" contributions from governments, corporations and plutocrats, for needed sustenance payments, wages, "compensation" or charity, however described.
Moreover, taxes, charges and levees of all kinds are currently extracted, by force by governments but in a "cashless" society they will be extracted by computer keystokes. In that environment the elimination of cash, ie physical "money" tokens which "wage slaves" can hold in their hands and exchange for goods and services, will usher in an era of total enslavement and dependance upon those who control society including of course the banks that will issue digital money credits to be used in lieu of cash wages and other cash payments.
On 5 February 2019, Christ Michael Aton the creator of this universe and this planet proclaimed the commencement of his Millennial Reign here. The Triodity of Presidents Trump Putin and Xi and their supporters are currently assisting Christ Michael Aton to take back control of this planet. Among other things, that involves elimination of the Federal Reserve System and Rothschilds' controlled global Central Banks. All nations will then assume responsibility for the creation and distribution of usury free physical currency (money) within their own jurisdictions. A global trading currency called the globec will be issued for use in international trade. These changes may not occur until after the coming magnetic reversal and stasis period.
Sky News host Alan Jones has suggested we are well on our way to becoming the “Orwellian state of Australia” with the proposal of a new law to “ban the use of cash transactions over $10,000”. The Currency Restrictions on the Use of Cash Bill of 2019 passed the House of Representatives due to Labor support and a Committee has recommended to the Senate that the Bill be passed. The References Committee Senate inquiry received 2,649 submissions, most of which opposed the bill on the basis that the government should not be interfering with an individuals legal right to spend cash as they wish. Mr Jones said this “legislation is designed to drive people to the banks”and if interest rates went below zero, individuals would be forced to pay the bank for holding their money.“Punishing people who pay in cash by threatening them with jail terms forces them into the clutches of the banks,” he said. However, Freelancer.com Chief Executive Matt Barrie said the new bill does
