Cashless Society, India and Big Brother
“The urge to save humanity is almost always a false front for the urge to rule.” ~ HL Menken
The short story is that American banking and government institutions are teaming up in a global ultimatum of life and death to switch all countries from cash to digital currency. The ultimatum is that if a country does not play ball cooperatively, it loses in trade, as digital will become the default platform.
In silence, India was chosen to kick off the Bell. The so-called “financial inclusion” campaign that began in India on November 9, 2016 is the opposite. The additional promotional language sets the goal of creating “a holistic ecosystem approach” to solve the problems of merchants and customers limited by cash-only systems. Translation: Think … Big Brother.
This well thought out globalist plan was not simply the brainchild of Indian Prime Minister Modi.
“In early November, without warning, the Indian government declared the two highest denomination banknotes invalid, abolishing more than 80 percent of circulating cash by value. Amid all the commotion and outrage this caused, no one seems to have noted the decisive role that Washington played in this. That is surprising, since Washington’s role has been only very superficially disguised. ” ~ Norbert Haering, Global Research, January 1, 2017
The shock and resulting difficulties have been palpable since India is one of the tea countries most dependent on a cash economy, especially for the millions of very poor people. Literally overnight more than 80% of the value of the cash in circulation was withdrawn, voiding all the 500 and 1000 rupee notes. Now street vendors and the poor in general suffer more and more. India has become the guinea pig’s harbinger of a cashless future, envisioned as an effort toward new economic opportunities. But … for whom?
The primary partnership with the country of India is the Indian Ministry of Finance and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Tea Beyond cash report is your source document (globalinnovationexchange.org/beyond-cash) but it doesn’t end there. To expand and implement digital payment in India, the US-India partnership introduced Catalyst: “Inclusive Cashless Payment Partnership” “to digitize economies” and make “daily cashless purchases”.

Not surprisingly, the war on cash has been primarily waged by payment providers in IT services. Their plan, obviously, is to make more money directly from digital payments or data, also for the benefit of governments. Some of the biggest players are Better Than Cash Alliance, Gates Foundation (Microsoft), Omidyar Network (eBay), Dell Foundation Mastercard, Visa and Metlife Foundation.
In 2012, the aforementioned umbrella organization, Better Than Cash Alliance (betterthancash.org), was established under the name: Moving from cash to digital payments to improve people’s lives. With generous donors, the Gates-Foundation and the Master-Card-Foundation, its membership is from large American institutions: MasterCard, Visa, the Ford Foundation, USAID, the Gates Foundation, eBay founder Pierre Omidyar’s Omidyar Network, and Citi, to name just a few of its 35 members.
There you go. It is only a matter of time until we know of the next country with a fate similar to that of the most unfortunate Indians. Will the big dogs continue to use the sneak attack strategy to make sure no one gets into their campaign? The momentum builds on the international business community’s interest in eliminating cash, increasing digital payments, and expanding the ability of payment service providers and mega-corporations to track every penny they spend. Are you ready for the “financial inclusion” of a “holistic ecosystem approach” to improve your life? Say ah!
