In July 2017, Visa announced it would pay restaurant owners $10,000 to go cashless, and that it had other such campaigns as well. Now many more restaurants are making the switch from cash to plastic. The global movement to strip cash out of society is driven by Technocrats who know that Technocracy cannot thrive without data from every purchase.

Sustainable Development, AKA Technocracy, promotes increasing income equality while proclaiming that it will reduce poverty. Taking resources out of the hands of citizens, declining property rights and public-private partnerships only have one outcome: the elite accumulate everything.
India is a fledgling Technocracy and the first national test case of stripping cash out of a major economy. India’s central bank has now extended its Technocrat hegemony by putting the hammer down on crypto-currencies such as Bitcoin.
Highly Technocratic Sweden is the world leader in driving cash out of society, opting for all digital transactions. Citizens are finally figuring out what could happen if the digital system got turned off, or if they were denied access to it. Citizens in other countries should pay close attention.
Arizona State University claims to be the national leader in promoting Sustainable Development; in spite of Arizona’s conservative reputation, it is saturated with U.N. policies and developing Fintech is only the latest manifesation.
Sustainable Development, Green Economy, SDGs, New Urban Agenda, etc., are all predicated on the false assumption that population by 2040 will grow by 25%. There is not one shred of demographic evidence to support this premise. Without fear mongering like this or fake global warming claims, all of these programs would fall flat on their face.
There are crooks and then there are lots of normal and innocent people who deal with Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies. The digital bloodhounds at the NSA took it as a challenge to hunt them all down and track their activity. This required new tools and techniques. You may think that your crypto-wallet is safe and private, but that perception will crumble once you know that the NSA is on your heels.
The new head of China’s Central Bank received his Ph.D. from University of Illinois and was a professor of economics at Indiana University in Indianapolis. In other words, he is a product of America as much as China. Bloomberg calls him a Technocrat. The picture of Xi Jinping as omnipotent dictator may have sprouted some puppet strings.
Technocrat Tim Cook heads the giant Apple organization and he is calling for a) the elimination of money in society and b) Universal Basic Income, both of which are pillars of modern Technocracy. Don’t assume for a minute that Cook doesn’t understand what he is doing!
Technocrat propaganda is a sweeping success in America as citizens stampede toward ‘free cash’, or Universal Basic Income (UBI). This concept has been spread by Technocrats such as billionaire Richard Branson, Y Combinator, Elon Musk, Google, and other Silicon Valley moguls.
