“The information I want to send you could soon be classified ‘Top Secret’ by the U.S. government — and perhaps even banned for dissemination under the pretext of ‘national security.” — Larry Edelson
Hello. This is Larry Edelson.
Just three years ago, we all discovered that the U.S. government has been engaged in a top secret campaign of illegal surveillance that even George Orwell could not have imagined.
We learned that every phone call we make … every email we send … every credit card and bank transaction we undertake … is being recorded, logged and tracked.
And we quickly discovered that the government has been pushing the outside of the constitutional envelope when it comes to domestic surveillance.
Surveillance cameras are now everywhere. License plate readers track the movements of all our vehicles. DNA samples are being forcibly recorded. Local police forces use Stingray scanners to track and record cell phones.
But even this level of Orwellian spying has not satisfied government bureaucrats.
In the next few minutes, I’ll reveal a conspiracy among Western governments, the world’s biggest banks and Internet billionaires to track EVERY transaction … every purchase you make, no matter how small or personal.
Government snoops want a global system of total financial surveillance
As usual, the U.S. government justifies this further attack on citizens’ privacy and constitutional rights as a necessary part of the “war on terror.”
But its real purpose is clear:
To enact a global system of total financial surveillance that is unprecedented in its scope and ambition.
To do that, they plan to totally ELIMINATE physical currencies …
… and to force ALL financial transactions to be conducted electronically with bank debit cards, Paypal, Google Cash and Apple Pay, and other electronic payment systems.
I know that may sound hard to believe … but please hear me out.
Dead broke governments worldwide want to eliminate cash altogether
You might not think it’s a big deal when you see college kids pay for coffee with their iPhones at Starbucks … but it’s actually part of an elaborate plan to gradually eliminate the use of cash in the global economy.
You see, governments everywhere HATE cash.
That’s because cash transactions are private — and usually are difficult to tax.
As a result, governments have decided to make cash transactions increasingly inconvenient and then eventually illegal.
For years now, government bureaucrats, the big banks and Internet billionaires have been secretly creating the infrastructure for what I call “digital totalitarianism.”
Each component of this infrastructure — debit cards, mobile payment systems, digital currencies — seem harmless enough at first.
The public has been told that these advances in digital technology are convenient, totally safe — and make the online economy possible.
And yet, when put together, these incremental advances have created a system of financial surveillance and control that is truly terrifying — and utterly unprecedented.
And now …
