Biden is a tyrant
He joins other 'elected' and unelected global leaders in turning you into a surveilled slave.
No justification for central bank digital currency; electronic payment systems suffice.

Passports are another checkpoint on this path, but we can reject them by saying no.
The public is being hoodwinked into thinking we already use digital currency, and that central bank digital currencies (CBDC) would simply increase the convenience.
What we use now are electronic payment systems, as we swipe cards, buy online and pay digitally while using less cash in its paper form. Cash is still available if we choose, it is anonymous and we can store it, even if inflation eats its value.
A CBDC in contrast, is more like a voucher. Its value to central banks is control: they can manage inflation directly by deducting, or stimulate the economy by crediting, accounts. They can link them to universal basic income and behavioural metrics, from carbon to social score, and unused income can be set to expire every month. The scope for social engineering is unlimited: no vaccine, no food.
By defending cash, one is taking sides, of course. But since the retail bank would likely disappear under a CBDC, and since the former are the lenders to small business (big business is largely self financing through the securities markets) — and given that small businesses create up to 80 per cent of jobs — this is an argument from self interest.
