Government Plan Would Transform Israel Into The World’s First Cashless Society


no cash

A Government preventing the use of its own legal tender, cash, is, in my humble opinion, a government that is only interested in the total control of its citizens.  – Shorty Dawkins, Associate Editor

Will Israel be the first cashless society on the entire planet?  A committee chaired by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s chief of staff has come up with a three-phase plan to “all but do away with cash transactions in Israel”.  Individuals and businesses would still be permitted to conduct cash transactions in small amounts (at least initially), but the eventual goal is to force Israeli citizens to conduct as much business as possible using electronic forms of payment.

In fact, it has been reported that Israeli officials believe that “cash is bad” because it fuels the underground economy and allows people to avoid paying taxes.  It is hoped that requiring most transactions to be conducted in cash will reduce crime and help balance the national budget. And once 98 or 99 percent of all transactions are cashless, it will not be difficult for the Israeli government (or any other government) to go the rest of the way and ban cash transactions altogether.

But is a cashless society actually desirable?  This is a question that people all over the world will have to start asking as governments increasingly restrict the use of cash.

Back in September, it was announced that the Israeli government had formed a committee to “examine ways to eliminate cash from the Israeli economy”

The government on Tuesday authorized establishment of a committee that will examine ways to eliminate cash from the Israeli economy – the better to prevent citizens from cheating on their taxes. The committee will be chaired by Harel Locker, director of the Prime Minister’s Office.

This committee had the full backing of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and some of the goals of the committee included finding ways to increase tax revenue and prevent money laundering

Officials in the Prime Minister’s Office declared that “around the world, it is recognized that cash is a key element of the illegal economy and money laundering. It allows a wide gap between reported and actual incomes, with the corresponding effect on tax revenues.” By eliminating cash, the PMO said, “it will be possible to expand the tax base, and prevent money laundering.” The committee will study the issue from all its perspectives and make recommendations, the PMO said.

The committee has had quite a few months to examine these issues, and now they have come back with their recommendations.  Just this week we learned that a three-phase plan is being proposed…

    Control.
    It is NOT, “We are from the government, and here to help you.”

    It is, We the “Government view all Citizens as SLAVES.
    Sheep to be sheered.
    Cattle to be milked or castrated into steers, and then slaughtered.”
    Fight these TYRANTS.

    I don’t know Shorty, Sweden only uses 3% cash transactions. I am assuming that 3% are Christians. Along with the lose of our liberties Satan is setting up his kingdom. Fortunately it won’t last for too long and then Jesus Christ will set up His kingdom on the earth, but until that time things will become darker and darker. I pray for the salvation of all Oath Keepers. In Christ, Mike.
