The government is talking about central bank digital currencies.
The globalists conspiracy nuts are going batshit right now.
They see everything that's going down as a way for the "deep-state" to push the globalist agenda:
One world government; one world currency.
American politicians are talking about this right now:
It would be easier to airdrop money onto citizens if a digital fiat currency were in place.
The SWIFT system is garbage and was invented in the 1970's.
The problem with all this talk... is WTF!?!?
We don't have the infrastructure to implement what they are talking about so quickly. As if the government could get something like that done fast enough to react to the current pandemic. Either they've already been working on the 'solution' for while, which would mean this entire crisis was scripted, or they expect this crisis to last a lot longer than any pandemic normally would.
So which is it?
Is this a false flag or do they just know it's going to last forever?
Everyone knows how inefficient and slow the government is. In reality they are probably just spitballing ideas while on the backfoot that will not help us at the moment. Still, it remains alarming that everyone is talking about getting rid of cash simply due to a virus, while at the same time claiming the opposite. COVID-19 is the ultimate scapegoat.
He's got nothin' on Corona Virus.
This is not globalism.
There will be no one-world government. There will be no one currency to rule them all (more than there already is). Power distribution throughout the world is much more decentralized than many of these conspiracy theorists believe. Even 1984 had Oceania, Eurasia, and Eastasia.
I'm very skeptical of the possibility.
The reason I can't subscribe to the whole globalist agenda is that it requires all the most powerful people on the planet to get together and agree how to take over the world using the military industrial complex. This kind of consensus is impossible.
The people at the top got there by being cutthroat capitalists. They stab each other in the back all the time to get ahead. That's how they got there in the first place. To think that these very same people are going to step into a room and then come to an agreement about how to fuck everyone else over and share that power fairly with each other is absurd. They all want more than their fair share of power; Every last one of them.
Satan is in control.
Using my perspective as an atheist, religion is the only way someone can logically believe that globalism is possible. There has to be a single entity above all the humans in charge that actually is calling all the shots; delegating power to the most evil/greedy humans on the planet that are willing to do ANYTHING to get ahead. Because I don't believe in the existence of Satan, it's hard to believe that a single centralized entity could possibly take over the planet.
Everyone in this world has at least a tiny bit of power over the space around them, some much more than others. There is a full spectrum of power here. A single person wouldn't even be able to delegate all that responsibility to everyone else. That's too big of a job for one person. Capitalism and greed are the real governance structures. We can always depend on the consistency of greed to govern itself; it needs no delegations.
Counterpoint: The Steem blockchain is a psyop.
This is a fun one that a lot of people like to throw around here. Steem (and even Bitcoin) are controlled by the deep-state. Let's run with this one for a second.
What has just happened on Steem? Justin Sun tried to take over and we all rallied against him. We would have never been able to come to consensus and forge the path that we did without this immense outside threat to unite us.
Let's take a look at the witness list, shall we?
Because of Justin Sun's attack against us, our top 20 witnesses are completely stagnant. There is no way for anyone else to become a top 20 witness now.
@smooth.witness #31 has 53000M Vests and needs more than double that to get into the top 20 at this point. @mahdiyari witness #37 has 26000M vests and needs more than 4 times that to become a top 20 witness. The witnesses in the top 100 need x40 to x60 more votes to get into the top 20. Compared to before our elections are abysmal. Thank you, Justin, I can still smell your stench on Hive.
In defending the blockchain from Justin Sun, our witness list has been fully centralized and possibly doomed to stagnation. We all came together to defend against a crippling threat, but the chance of doing the same just to make elections a little more fair is highly unlikely. Even I haven't changed my votes yet. Everyone needs to remove their votes from the top 20 just to make it a little more even.
In fact, we need to seriously consider changing votes to 1:1 and resetting the entire election process so we can start over.
What's the point?
Well, if you think Steem is a psyop, isn't this the perfect test for globalism? Unite the world against against a common enemy; once that enemy is defeated the "heroes" who won the war will stay in power, quite possibly forever.
The problem with globalism is this:
What entity on the planet is stronger than all other entities on the planet combined? That entity not only has to conquer every territory, but also has to hold said territory over time and prevent uprising. This is an absolute impossibility unless you believe Satan will reveal himself and use his magic powers against us in the final apocalyptic battle.
Barring the possibility of being enslaved by a magical mythical being.
The only other way to do it would be just as crazy. I'm thinking something like a black-flag alien invasion, which I've also seen the "crazies" talking about. Yeah I guess that would work if the military industrial complex was able to advance technology in secret long enough to pull it off.
However, this also assumes that all the competing military forces were left completely in the dust and no one ever saw it coming. It would also assume that we eventually beat the 'aliens' in a war and the ones who led us to victory are the people already in charge. Pretty far fetched if you ask me.
Going through all that trouble just to gain a tiny bit more power? That is not a viable strategy. This is especially true because the world that they've inherited after the fact is left in shambles. No one wants to own an empire of dirt and scorched earth. There's no value in that prospect.
Like I've already stated before, we can always count on greed to be consistent. No greedy groups of reptiles are going to wait around and tech up for decades in secret on the off chance they'll take over the world one day. People want what they want, and they want it now. New technology gets used immediately for personal gain. These things have a progression.
The military industrial complex is not some harmonious clump of demons fluidly working together to fuck over us pure-of-heart humans.
The world is chaos.
Humans aren't that great.
We need to start here before we extrapolate the rest. Being the little guy, it's easy to lose sight of the facts and come to the conclusion that every aspect of this existence is tilted against us by the Evil One. This is incorrect. The world economy is a nonsensical meat-grinder with all kinds of unpredictable outcomes based on thousands of variables. The bottom of the debt-spewing pyramid chews us up and spits us out. That is all.
Get to the point already!
The point is that if America makes a digital currency, why would we think that currency is going to take over the whole world and begin a new reign of terror ushered in by Satan and his globalist agenda? Every country is going to make their own currency just as they always have over and over again.
When a fiat currency fails... they just inevitably make another one.
Either that or the hyperinflation ends and becomes the new standard.
There are 7 BILLION people here.
That puts 7000 people in the top 0.0001%.
Do we really think the top 7000 people are going to agree on anything whatsoever?
What about the top 700?
We can't even get our top 20 witnesses to agree on anything.
America spends more on military than every other nation combined, yet we still can't get oil-producing Podunk nations like Venezuela to come to heel. They would rather suffer greatly than serve as our lapdog as many other countries have (Saudi Arabia).
The Great Satan
In the middle-east, America is viewed as the "Great Satan". A lot of these guys literally believe that America's imperialist economic strategy and foreign policy is Satan trying to take over the world. They can not be fully controlled by US, no matter how militarily dominated they are. They literally think they would go to hell and be tortured for all eternity if they sold out to US. Remember that the next time a "cowardly terrorist" blows himself up for his beliefs. I get the feeling there might be a lot more of that nonsense going on in the years to come.
Don't get me wrong...
I do not believe that politicians hold any real power.
Their power is delegated.
I've been very clear:
Politicians are designed to be purchased by the elite.
Why else would they be paid so little, relatively to how much power they wield?
It's money that rules the world, which is obviously why crypto is so important. Currency is the language of value transfer. Language and communication are the only aspects of humanity that elevate us above other animals. We stand on the backs of our ancestors, and we are due for an evolution.
To say that a single central bank is somehow going to take over everything is ridiculous.
Not only are central banks in competition with other central banks, they also have to answer to corporations and governments. Everyone wants the biggest piece of the pie they can get.
This is capitalism.
Even communism is capitalism.
Even socialism is capitalism.
These are just words.
The real power structure takes the form of the pyramid.
Open your third eye.
These facts are not a secret.
It's even printed on our currency in the creepiest way possible.
The eye straight up floating above the pyramid is not humanity.
God? Satan? Aliens?
Do you believe it?
It's just a myth.
Because I'm sure if these things were true it would still be the first thing Google spat out at me.
Google would never hide important information like this from us.
"Don't be evil."
Google is under the thumb of the government.
The government is under the thumb of central banks.
Central banks are under the thumb of the elite.
They want us to believe stupid shit like Satan is in control.
Religion is the ultimate control lever.
Fight the battle for your eternal soul, friends.
Remember the French Revolution?
If poor people came to consensus about who is actually to blame for their indentured servitude, the heads of the elite would be on pikes.
We can't have that.
Interestingly enough, The French Revolution happened right after 1776 in 1789.
The planet is more decentralized than we think it is.
It's impossible to rule the world.
The price of Bitcoin has crossed through the $6666.66 mark 21 times on the hourly candlesticks over the past 2 days. Coincidence?
Not everything needs to be a conspiracy, however fun that may be.
