I've talked about this before as well and its a shot across the bow of Regular Joes. Yes...consumers will not have choices in the future because
purchases will be mandatory in some way. "Click-Wrap Agreements" and a cashless society will make that transition easier for the "Owners of Capital"
to force on the general populace.
Policies structured like Obamacare should have taught us ALL how these kinds of scenarios will play out. Obamacare is merely the test run of how to
implement legislated purchases on a large scale. "Click-Wrap Agreements" a cashless society will only strengthen similar policies in the future.
What do I mean exactly?
Many forget that we now live in what "could" be considered a fascist country, with oligopolies running it behind the scenes. What usually results, is
a situation where the "owners of capital", can and will "legislate" mandatory purchases in the future, if revenue does not match their expectations or
projections (for the good of the nation of course, i.e., Too-Big-to-Fail).
So for example, if someone chooses not to buy unneeded goods or services, they will simply pay a "penalty" at tax time or some scheme involving a
"negative interest rate". The "owners of capital" have, at this point, run out of consumer goods that they can "strongly coerce" people to buy, in
order to go to work, such as, gasoline, internet connection, car insurance, bus/subway fare, cell phones, suits/uniforms, soap, deodorant, razors,
etc. We are approaching a day when they will simply make it law that you have to buy goods, in certain quantities before tax season (the current
Healthcare dependent, Flexible Spending Account, FSA, is just the pilot program, one day we will have an FSA for ALL goods and services, and you can
bet these accounts will be use-it or lose-it). Also, since you won't own things like the new "digital cars" being developed or the current "digital
media" being rented on Hulu, Netflix, etc., means in the future, you could be billed for "damage to the vehicle or product" from the "real owners of
that vehicle or product" at any time.
Regular People will not be allowed to be frugal in the future because the "owners of capital" will take close to the same amount back, when a person
tries to save money by reducing purchases, in the form of "tax penalties" or other method (cashless, digital currency,, negative interest rate,
deductions from bank accounts whenever the "owners of capital" see fit). A cashless society, dominated by "click-wrap agreements" is the easiest way
to structure "forced purchases" into the larger economy. Another scenario that regular people will face in the future, is when someone chooses "not to
buy" and then doesn't have the proper "proof of purchase" coupon, etc, to prove they bought these items, in the required quantities, when tax fillings
come due. I can guarantee that the IRS or some other agency will have some way to calculate the amount "you should have purchased" (sounds a little
like a college FASFA aid forms in reverse doesn't it?). People will also have to pay a monthly fee to keep their digital money in the bank and there
won't be any alternative way to store it, without paying the monthly fee. It is an instant, predictable, revenue generator for public companies, that
the stock market will then feed off.
Bartering used as a circumvention method has been suggested before, but the IRS already has a plan and system in place to deal with it somewhat. They
will tax bartering by an estimate, the same way they do for restaurant servers receiving tips. There will likely be HUGE penalties for barter and I
will bet EVERYONE will automatically be assumed to have "bartered" some amount over the year at tax time (perhaps an estimated $500 in barter per
year, that is taxed whether the person in question did any actual bartering or not). The most likely outcome though, is that one day, bartering will
simply be deemed an illegal activity, I don't recall it being a named constitutional right anywhere.
Look at solar roof panels, as another example, many local governments are taxing people for installing them because they reduce dependence on local
utilities, which in turn, drives down privatized revenue being collected by the contract companies hired running the utilities.
Here is an example, remember when cell phones were actually fun?
I do, the phone was a huge and needed to be carried in a bag, BUT my boss NEVER called me on it, after what was considered typical work hours and
certainly never to ask me to do more work, while I was at home. Compare that to today, when a cell phone in your pocket can spontaneously generate
more work to be done outside of the office, simply because someone higher up than you had a random thought at midnight.
When my parents were in school in the 1950's and 60's they were told: no one would have to work in the future, that everything would be done by robots
and they would, in turn, have increased free time used for creating, making art, learning and helping others...
Robotics, self driving cars, digital currency, the Singularity, Cell Regeneration and Artificial Intelligence are essentially the same lie, told to
our parents, rehashed for a 21st century audience. I think its funny when regular people get excited about future tech like the Singularity, AI,
Robotics, Self-Driving Cars, etc. Do people really think when these thing finally become real, functioning, working designs, applicable to industry,
that we, the "peons", will somehow ALL get a Data from Start Trek or a C-3PO from Star Wars, to help us at home, at the job site or in the office,
I choose to not trust the intentions of corporations, AT ALL TIMES. The tech being created today is merely a tool of the "Owners of Capital" to
oppress regular people. IN THE NEAR FUTURE, tech will absolutely be designed and bound to do the bidding of corporations and to enforce the will of
government. It will not be independent of the real "owners of capital", by any stretch of the imagination. Currently, regular people, ESPECIALLY
MILLENNIALS, falsely believe tech will save and unite them, when in reality it was designed by "corporate committee" to do just the opposite. The
only way regular people can save themselves, NOW, is to abandon tech, physically impede tech research and stop buying/supporting companies making this
AI/singularity tech. I personally at this point are willing to live with 1980's +/- era tech, if it means, I am more free and can continue to earn
money to live off.
Note, I said OWNERS, not "creators", "purchasers" or "users".
