The ignorance of those people just gets me rlly angry.
ha, after being on ATS for awhile and if it's the only forum you frequent, you can be lulled into a sense that society actually has somewhat of a
grip on reality.
But that's as far from the truth as possible. And your link clearly demonstrates that.
As one poster in this thread states, "it's probable", im going to go ahead and go further and say that this scenario is HIGHLY probable.
That's why I have been a staunch opponent of a cashless society forever. Anyone who lives off debit and credit cards alone, can easily be understood
by anyone who has the time to read the statements.
Everything you do, everywhere you go, everything you eat, everything you consume, everything you purchase. All on a piece of paper. Essentially, a
tome of your existence.
And as I've also stated in the past, it isn't even the government who you should fear having your entire life on paper. It's private corporations
that will exploit this fact to the fullest. As evidenced in this probable future scenario.
Anyone who gives a damn should take the following steps immediately.
1. Quit living on credit and debit cards! If your check is deposited into your account, go to the bank and withdraw almost the entire amount the day
2. Doing this will first, keep prying eyes out of your private life.
3. Doing this, you will also be able to budget your money more effectively. Too many people get suckered into over spending on credit and debit
because they don't notice themselves continually spending. If you only have 500$ to live for this week, only bring 60$ a day when you leave the
house. You cannot over spend.
4. If everyone in the nation were to follow these steps, the implementation of a cashless society would be absolutely impossible.
But, as we all know, ignorance spawned from convenience has blocked peoples ability to think rationally and act properly.
