Now you see it, now you don’t. This may shock you, so, I trust you’re sitting down. Cashless societies stories have been missed altogether by this incredibly impuissant media, well, to be fair, the American mainstream media, which rank consistently as the most detached and disconnected waste of collective flesh ever amassed under the incredibly ironic banner of information delivery system and platforms.
You put the lime in the coconut. Other intrepid journalists haven’t missed a beat. How ’bout a hand for Paul Joseph Watson, evra’buddeh! Other alternative and foreign media sources, that is. And I must admit that the notion of alternative media I find is most unfair as it should be the standard. Alternative to what, the sputum and bilge of our sorry infobots and Botoxed buffoons wasting electrons with minute-thirty stand-ups and look-lives creating the illusion of relevance.
Do I look fat in this? The specter and considerable ramifications of cashless countries have been the subject of concern to intellectual purists, constitutional sentries and liberty guardians for decades and for good reason. And we are not just talking mark of the beast stuff, though I must admit, the Biblical presaging is most curious and fascinatingly vatic. No, alternative and foreign news sources are replete with references daily to the specter of a cashless society and — I’ll say it again! — our ossified, Jurassic mainstream news media have nary a clue as to the implications of this truly potentially cataclysmic event. Just think, citizen net worth that is able to be destroyed or seized in a mouse click. Imagine any vestige of personal empowerment removed by virtue of legislation that a torpid and incurious news media don’t know anything about, recognize or even understand.
Rome wasn’t built in a day. When the subject of The Bigs (Agra and Pharma) is brought up, Ol’ Ted Baxter and his vapid cronies scratch their collective heads and utter something about “What’s the big deal?” and move on in that slow narcotized shuffle and gait. Well, ciizens, recently there was the regurgitated and seemingly perennial study that essentially suggested that not only are vitamins worthless but they could be dangerous, as in could kill you. It had all of Big Agra and Big Pharma’s fingerprints all over the story, the fact that many in the alternative and for media recognized immediately. But not our Ted Baxter, no siree. And with the latest media kerfuffle involving Dr. Oz and how the Monsanto Mafia were sicced on the good doctor, you would think that this would have inspired the media to take a more aggressive approach in investigating his newfound wrath. Yes, operative, term: You would think. To all of us with two neurons to run together, we knew right away that it was because of his outspoken statements regarding vaccinations and glyphosate. In fact, we could have written the script. Yet the usual suspects, the skeptics and smart-assed nobodies assumed the pose and position of casting his statements aside as that of a vaccine or Monsanto “truther” and it was off to the races. For that is the level of intellectual discourse today. But, I digress.
Where’s that big stick, Teddy? And finally, there is a war on truth in this country. A reiteration and repackaging of Cold War rhetoric that should scare the shite out of you. As Paul Craig Roberts noted, your government attempted to use “two minor presstitutes to help him redefine all who take exception to Washington’s lies as “threats” who belong to a deranged pro-Russian propaganda cult.” And, you guessed it, your comatose mainstream media did absolutely nothing to cover it or even feign interest in the story. So listen, my children, and you shall hear a man of liberty who knows no fear. Ahem.
