Default The future is scary.

I spend far too much time on the internet looking at current affairs. There is some strange stuff going on in the world and big business is getting bigger and the rich are getting richer. The promoted "world economy" is nothing more than having access to the cheapest resources either natural or human in an effort to make more profit. Borders are dropped and the world labour force gets depressed. If you have the time take flip through the TPP for the ground rules big business is promoting and the paid politicians are agreeing to. The class segregation portrayed in Blade Runner has begun and I do fear for my grandkids.

Every once in awhile though I run across something so far fetched and potentially damaging to us all that I think 'This can't be real'. Unfortunately it is and maybe the survivalists aren't all that crazy after all.

I couldn't agree more! It's just bat shit crazy what the Govt and central banks around the world are doing with currency. I like to watch these videos as well. Did some investing in gold and silver awhile back. I am not sure it was the right thing to do now, but only time will tell I guess.

A cashless society might not be all bad. It would shine a light on a lot of illegal activity even political buy off's. All your deposits would be taxed so everyone would pay taxes instead of finding ways to hide it.

If implemented and used propperly it could be a good thing for honest hardworking people we wouldn't need to be taxed so much. But I don't trust the government to do anything propperly.

I live for today, the future will take care of itself.
I don't watch TV, the news, or read newspapers.
I don't tap into negative bullshit.
don't concern myself with politics.
I Ride!

Happy to live in this corner of the world, everything is paid cash or bank transfer ... Nobody can tell you to have a cashless life ...

In Brazil it is pretty the same, it takes ages paying stuff in shops, government control on spendings ....

Here people pay cash for there homes or cars if they wish too ... You can do anything that makes you happy and no need to listening to nobody if you not feel like .... Credit cards are not common, but cash cards are normal, that is still money right ??

Do not listen to others, live your life CASH and how you want to, do not have Dept .... At least try just to buy / save money for a car and pay cash and be done with it ??

I am a prolific news hound. I say little and think a lot.

I am not afraid of the future because I already know the ending. I subscribe to all that the bible says and how Revelations wraps it all up. And it will wrap up!

As for money... IT is not evil! The LOVE of money is. Money is what drives every thing. Money drives every thing.

I choose not to live in fear because I subscribe to peace and that is only obtained through my faith in Jesus.

If I live in fear, I have no faith.

What you all see happening will of course get worse. I grew up in the 60's and 70's when no one locked their doors. I am well aware of how it all changed and why.

My 23 year old daughter and my 18 year old son will grow a family in a world of self-seekers, crazies, unbelievers, anxious, drug-infused, afraid, insecure, depraved, sad, depressed, and angry society.

What all of these are missing is what I got. He is the Light to a lost world. He is the answer. He is the savior who came for all. But, they refused Him!

A cashless economy is rife for hacking. A cash economy is open to counterfeiting. Government is making corporations and the rich wealthier with their policies and contracts. Government policies are also re dicing the middle class and increasing the lower class and keeping them there. And the current administration has been the most complaisant in all that. Our kids and grandkids futures are depending on the November 2016 vote.

Hey guys, just cut the news addiction and your anxiety will go way down. The "News" industry has used using fear mongering to increase it's bottom line almost since broadcasting was first invented.
It wears people down and puts a lot of people on anxiety meds.
Of course if your a stock holder in TimeWarner, or Fox that is a good thing. People checking in to get their nightly instructions on how to avoid disaster means that your investment is bound to grow.

Try not watching or listening to a single news story for a week and see if you don't start to feel better. 2 weeks would even be better. Unlike quitting beer or coffee this addiction doesn't have physical addition symptoms but your body will love you for it just the same.


If your worried that the world might end and you'll miss it because the news anchor didn't give you his spin on it don't. If world ends you'll know about it. The whole planet will be invited to that party.
You'll get your invitation too, no worries.
