A Global Cashless Society has been the Goal of the Bill Gates Foundation Since 2012
A Global Cashless Society has been the Goal of the Bill Gates Foundation Since 2012 - The creation of a global cashless society has been advocated by many powerful interests in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. Chinese authorities have been disinfecting cash and removing cash from circulation in the name of combating coronavirus. In Britain, the UK supermarket chain, Tesco, opened its first cashless store in London earlier this year, whilst Waitrose, another UK supermarket, increased the payment limit for contactless transactions from £30 to £45. In March, a consumer group in Russia encouraged citizens to use digital payment methods as opposed to cash, arguing that this could impede the spread of coronavirus.
This came shortly after the World Health Organization (WHO) caused a stir after it was reported that they advised people to wash their hands after touching banknotes and use contactless payment methods instead of cash, yet the WHO later said that these statements had been misreported, and that they hadn’t said cash was spreading coronavirus. Even though certain medical experts have dismissed the claim that cash plays a major role in the transmission of Covid-19, many organizations continue to push the cashless agenda.
This is because the cashless agenda is much older than this latest crisis. Of course, there have been numerous calls by governments or corporations calling for people to go cashless in recent years, including when the CEO of Bank of America advocated a cashless society last year. Yet the calls for going cashless are much older than the past couple of years, as it has been the objective of an Alliance funded and supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and agencies of the United Nations (UN) since 2012.
We also should not forget that a future global cashless society would not exist in a vacuum and would complement the other surveillance powers available to corporate and government power.
