We are seeing a massive power grab. Whether it is orchestrated or not, there is no doubt that freedoms are being quickly eradicated. The coronavirus seems like the ideal crisis for the power hungry to take even more control.
The narrative is being carefully monitored.
Many of us are aware of the censorship that is taking place on YouTube and Facebook. Anything that goes against the agenda is now taking down. Want to promote a protest against the lockdowns on Facebook? Do so and your post will be removed. Decide to put up a video questioning the narrative pertaining to the virus? Then you will be labeled a conspiracy theorist and your videos removed.
This is the point we are at.
Now there is talk of a digital dollar. Wouldn't that just be peachy? Many feel this would be a step in the right direction. Sadly, they are mistaken. The idea of setting up a national bank is very bad. While the banking system is far from ideal, at least that stand between the government and our accounts.
The idea of the government being able to send money into your wallet easily is appealing. Of course, that would mean that the government could go in and also take money. Since it would not be a decentralized system, all your money would be under their control.
Step out of line and it would not just be your videos removed.
This is the reality that the likes of Mr. Bill "Chip Everyone" Gates wants. He and his cohorts are looking to set up a system where everyone is monitored and controlled. Just look at what companies like Apple and Google are doing during their pandemic. They are actively working on monitoring systems which will alert people when they come close to anyone with the virus.
All of this puts Nathaniel Hawthorne's Scarlet Letter to shame.
People are not aware of the major power struggle that is taking place. The technology of today is very powerful. This means the stakes are higher than they ever were before.
Governments and their associated actors can do things the likes of Stalin and Hitler never dreamed about. In a world where digitization is such a vital component of our lives, it is much easier to control. No need to send people to Siberia when you can lock them in the "Facebook Gulag".
Fortunately, the same technology that is available to the elites are also available to the masses. We can develop and build systems to counteract what they are doing. This is a struggle that was taking place for the last 30 years. However, due to the allure of money, which equates to power, many opted for the "here's your check" route.
We now live in a digital world that is siloed. There are a few entities that control most of it. We can break it down to a handful of governments and maybe 15 corporations around the world. That is who is running the show.
I am an advocate of stepping back and looking at what is taking place. Each level back reveals more of the picture. It is easy to get focused upon what is in front of us while missing the larger issues.
Blockchain and cryptocurrency are not about Lambos and mansions. It has nothing to do with wealth for wealth itself. Instead, these are crucial pieces in the struggle that is taking place. Freedom is at the core of this.
Want to practice something like natural medicine? Under the world of a digital currency that is controlled by the government, you best do it for free because they will tap into your bank account. If a video can be removed from a centralized platform by the entity that controls it, do not believe the same power does not reside with digital currency. After all, it is nothing more than data. Go against what the paid agenda is and that data will be altered.
I keep referring to an application such as 3Speak as being crucial. We need a lot more projects like that to pop up. Censorship is simply a way of controlling the message. The establishment uses fear to keep people in line. Now, people are afraid to go near each other and are willing to stay in their homes. Of course, government has the answer to that, pass laws punishing anyone who disobeys. The State of Massachusetts now is fining anyone $300 who goes outside without a mask on. Why stop there? Why not just arrest them and give them a year in the prison? I might be getting ahead of myself, that might be next.
Control over one's money is vital. This is at the core of sovereignty. If one cannot spend as he or she sees fit, then what is left? Whenever we buy something, we are exercising our ability to make a choice. This is something that is going to be removed.
Government issued digital money is going to take those choices away. This is especially true when they tie in a universal basic income. Want your money this month? Stop supporting "fill in the blank" political organization. Oh wait, we see you tried to purchase something that is not approved by us; for that, you will have a two month penalty.
What we are involved in each day is vital to the future path that humanity is going to take. The answer to the centralized system is decentralization. This is a drum I keep beating because there is no way around it. When a foe wants to exert power in a vertical system, the solution is to go horizontal. Thus, the power structure is spread out.
For this to happen, we need to attract tens of millions of users and rapidly. No matter what the blockchain, regardless of the token, it is crucial that people start to get involved. Those "conspiracy theorists" formally on YouTube are prime candidates since they are now booted out of the system.
There is a ray of hope. Bitcoin transactions in many countries is reaching all time highs. Over the last few days, the April numbers started to roll in. Countries such as Argentina, Chile, Lebanon, Greece, and Venezuela saw record highs in the amount of money transacted using Bitcoin. These are countries where the system is overtly failing them. People are starting to catch on.
I feel this is only going to spread as things get worse around the world. Make no mistake about it, the global economy is in for a rough year or two. In that time, we are going to see the greatest expansion of power ever. The events after 9-11 were just a primer. This is getting serious now.
It is obvious that if I can figure all this out, so can the highly intelligent people behind what is taking place. They are well aware of the technological capabilities that exist and what the potential is. This became evident in the two year FUD campaign against cryptocurrency. The power that are could not have tens of millions of people enriching themselves in an asset which they have no control over. This was simply not something that was acceptable to them.
Just think, if Justin Sun could basically negate the balances in people's accounts, what do you think those in Washington or Brussels will do?
Centralization is at the root of all of this and it is time for us to stop trusting anything that is centralized.
In the end, it often results in being corrupted.
