Do you feel like things are moving too quickly to absorb?  That’s because they are and that’s no accident.  A very common strategy of revolutionaries and those holding the reins of power who wish to get big things accomplished is to move more quickly than decent people can adjust.

“When it rains, it pours.”

If you overwhelm people’s ability to grasp what’s happening, then you can keep them sidelined while you smash and cram through the things you want to accomplish.

It’s obvious that a digital currency is desired by the powers that be.  The world’s major countries and central banks are all working to bring Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) to their countries.

Do the people in those countries want them?  That’s irrelevant.

Will privacy and freedom concerns be taken seriously and safeguarded?  LOL!

We all know the answer to that question, right?  The answer is “no.”

The key feature of CBDCs is that they will be “programmable” meaning the issuer can place all sorts of stipulations and limits on their use.

Governments want them because of the exceptional power and social control CBDCs will provide.  Troublemakers can be cut off from “their” money with the flick of a switch.  Nudge units will be able to shape and steer people’s behaviors like never before, using a combination of subtle carrot-and-stick approaches coupled to advanced AI learning and fine-tuning.

But they’d better get busy bringing them into being, there are only a few more years before this whole adventure flies off the rails, as I discuss in part II (“When Does The SHTF?”)
