The £45 Billion ''bailout'' that was needed to save the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) last year, was nothing compared to the potentially devastating ''cashless'' four days that shook people's faith in the electronic modern world of banking.
By John Salvage-RBS group, employs what is known as automated batch software, (CA-7),which carries out the hourly tasks human staff once did.
The CEO,Chief Operating Officer,was quick to point out that the system failure,was nothing to do with it's ''off-shoring'' of important office staff.
Of course,the problem could have been seen with indigenous eyes and professionals sooner over here,and maybe it would not have happened at all.
Thus,that quick response is indicative of a poor excuse for failings. On top of that news,comes the despicable acts of rigged rates from potentially every one of the major ''British'' banks.
However,with all that said and done,the real issue is not any of the above,although important enough.
It is that with a possible ''cashless society'',proposed by many movers and shakers internationally and here,what we saw over just four days, with many millions not being able to function,pay bills,get paid,pay staff,and some even ending up with late payment fines,such a system should,with this system failure in mind as an example,be a stark warning for any future plans to take our hard won, monetary inheritance and birth right away.
It is impossible for normal and sensible people to even consider a cashless society,never mind having it forced upon us.
However,there are those who are tugging away craftily,slyly,and behind the scenes,and should they get their way,we will be left with nothing,literally nothing,with which to offer sustenance and a future for our coming generations.
As one has come to expect,all the usual suspects in the world of anti-traditionalist propaganda in the media,authors etc and suchlike,are on the ball with this one.
A certain American author,got his hate of notes and coins into the populace with,you guessed it,the BBC (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-18401164).
He says money in the form of notes and coins,are:''dirty, expensive and should just be pushed off the cliff''.
In his new book,''The End of Money'',which the BBC proudly promoted during the short documentary seen by viewing the above link, he is quoted as saying: ''Counterfeiters,Preachers,Techies,Dreamers,And The Coming Cashless Society,is seen as a ''eulogy to these rectangular slips of paper and little metal disks''.
I wonder if the millions of RBS customers, businesses,and all manor of institutions left without the freedom to operate, are in agreement?
They no doubt,would have loved a plentiful supply of those ''rectangular slips of paper and little metal disks''.As with all such future projections, once seen as ridiculous and far fetched,they seem to creep up on us without a shred of warning,or democratic choice, whether we want them or not.
You'll notice also that,he and the BBC seem to know for certain that the idea of a cashless society is ''coming''.No choice,no opt-out, no real money.
With the government here,and all over the west and America,now able to spy,engineer,and create the right circumstances for ever more oppression and a system well used and known by now,that of creating a threat or problem,then coming up with the solution,it is obvious that the cashless society is dangerous,and an attempt to grab and steal,the last vestige of financial freedom from us all.
No matter how much many of us use a credit/debt card, and no matter how ''easy'' it is to purchase goods and services it has become, including buying on the internet,the stark warning of what happened with millions of RBS customers,should be like a beacon to all sane and right thinking individuals.
Lets face it,if we are forced to go cashless,imagine the power the banksters and foreign industrialists,the military,and alien power mongers will have?
We could see the literal theft of our money,and the withholding of our liquid assets,if we don't ''vote the right way'' for instance. The excuses would be minimal for this to happen.
Look when Austria dared to vote in Jorg Haider a few years back.The whole of the parasitical elite threw in their most effective and deadliest weapon next to their profitable favourite of war-mongering:that of sanctions.
As recently as June the 27th this year,The Nigeria Computer Society (NCS),will be promoting its 24th National conference next month in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.
The theme? ''Towards a Cashless Nigeria:Tools and Strategies."It is expected to address benefits,opportunities and challenges of a cashless society.
According to the President of NCS,Demola Aladekomo,the annual conference for IT professionals and stakeholders in Nigeria,will attract practitioners,decision makers,policy makers,and professionals from all over the world,with the aim of addressing the networking needs of the IT sector.
The Central Bank of Nigeria,CBN, has used the often engineered, and western funded war mongering agenda, to come up with the ''solution'' of money laundering, terrorist financing, and other economic and financial crimes in Nigeria. The country has recently reduced all daily cash withdrawals by individuals and companies... WARNING BELLS?
If this spreads,and it probably will,we can see the whole world becoming ''owned'' by central banks, and then the real grab for world power will be one easy step away.Many of us in the Nationalist community already know how, why, and by whom, money was created after it was centralised.
Many ordinary people are instinctively wary of how money creates debt, and that the debt was and is, created from nothing.But, how many will put two and two together,early enough to halt this insane and dangerous act of total control of their lives, and that of their children and grand-children?
Probably nowhere near enough sadly.Let's look at a probable scenario for those who may be thinking that it could be a good idea, and for the rest of us to help enlighten others.
The First Day Of Our Cashless Society,And Beyond.The world government(s) announce that the lowest denomination of money,will now be £1.00.
Millions have taken their ''old'' notes and coins and handed them into the banks. They have forgotten, or failed to realise that they have to take their mobile phones,cards,and other electronic applications with them... everywhere and at all times.
Shopkeepers and small traders suffer,the self employed,with billions of pounds/Euros/Dollars etc,taken out of the system,are left without the profit required to make it worthwhile running their operations.
Millions of others don't have access to these, such as many elderly folk,and people aware of the electronic spyware and private info being sold to companies,so don't bother using smaller shops and former cash only businesses.
The economy loses billions over the next few months, transaction fees for purchasing electronically limit growth.
Soon,the traditional economy is decimated.Large corporations soon dive in like vultures, and the high street looks even worse that it does now. Online shopping is the easiest system, nd millions are further made redundant.
Riots break out,pension pots are made poorer,and on the first ''anniversary'' of the bill,ordinary people basically stay at home,and realise that every single transaction they have actually bothered to make,has left a trail... and fines are soon levied for ''illegal'' actions,such as forgetting to pay your council tax,self-employed taxes and insurances on time.
Year two sees the banks making record profits,and these are pumped into foreign aid and fiddles,such as ''social investments'' hat, ensure the third world nations are producing growth at a faster rate than ever before.
Here in Britain,no one bothers to purchase anything under five pounds, as it is too costly for both the client, and the business, to make it worthwhile... the unemployment figure reaches five million.
Those lucky enough to get some form of benefit, are paid measly amounts, limited to three months.
If no work is found after three months, your benefits are halted.A system of bartering is employed by sections of all levels of the by now, oppressed and robbed society, and soon enough,the government make it ''illegal'',jailing or fining anyone using it.
Armed forces members find their final pay being withheld for months, if they leave their employment on moral grounds and increasing stress.
A new law makes it impossible for families of armed forces members to get full pension rights,and soon,conscription is brought back into use.Protestors the word over,find that a ''glitch'' has stopped monies going into and out of their bank accounts. weeks go by, and many are forced into poverty.
Political parties opposed to the global war mongering and industrial elites,find that the same has happened to them, but this also coincides with new legislation that will ensure no political party can collect funds on the basis that they are ''undemocratic and racist''.
Banking facilities are also withheld on a regular basis,from those voters or members of anti-establishment groups,and the glitches are excused as ''accidents''.Within three years,around ten large companies control every industry and service sector.
A new ''special business start up tax'' is implemented for those wanting to operate on a small scale, many don't bother, and those that do are cruelly starved of funds, and computer glitches are a regular occurrence.
Millions of people who couldn't physically get cash out of the banks, have been told they must pay a transaction fee to now do so... the money was supposed to be already in the bank... too late now.
The above is obviously fiction... for now.
But those with long enough memories,will remember that the British National Party had it's banking facilities frozen a few years ago.
No such conditions of course for Sin Fein/IRA, nor extremist religious groups etc,but nationalists?
It may be fiction now,but the writing is on the wall,and the usual suspects of global totalitarianism and finance,are softening us up, and making it impossible to find value in real money, or traditional means of operating as it is... welcome to your future,unless we oppose it at every level.
It's time to prepare to protect those ''rectangular slips of paper and little metal disks''.
