If your Orwellian nightmares have seemingly become more real, you are not imagining it. We seem to be careening towards the Great Reset at break-neck speed. An undemocratic, unelected group of "elites" want to tell you exactly how to live and exist. Want to buy a soda? It isn't a far stretch to realize that someone, other than yourself, would be able to determine if/when/where you can (or can't) buy said soda.
The cashless society has been creeping up on us incrementally over the past few years with recent changes such as requiring all cash app transactions over $600 to be reported to the IRS or when, in the case of Canada, the government, without due process or anyone being charged and convicted of crime, decided to freeze bank accounts of people who they found annoying. Needless to say, having your every transaction monitored by the government isn't a great idea. This sort of control will be even easier once the government rolls out its Central Bank Digital Currency program.
Then there are other programs that have been put into place to "protect" people. Like the Trusted News Initiative (to protect you from wrongthink), the Known Traveler Digital Identity program, and social credit systems like the ones in Ukraine and China (what could possibly go wrong?).
Some things you can do to protect yourself from these things:
- Walk, bicycle, or drive a pre-black box vehicle so your movements won't be tracked. Did you know that all new cars will be required to have a "kill switch" installed? All in the name of "safety" of course.
- Live in a rural area out of the way of most digital surveillance such as dash passes, license plate readers, commercial and residential video surveillance cameras, etc.
- Use cash as much as possible.
- Barter as much as possible.
- Shop at alternative places like thrift stores, small mom and pop businesses, garage sales, etc.
- Avoid buying products in a way that can be tracked (ie: online, via apps, at membership stores, with your credit card or cash app, etc).
- Produce your own stuff from food to clothing to building projects to "maker" type activities.
- Dare to leave your phone and all other electronics at home when you go out. Your phone tracks everything about you from your location to your health metrics to your searches to your biometrics (facial recognition, finger prints, voice print, etc).
- If you must have a phone with you, check out YouTube channels such as Rob Braxman, SumSub, Privacy X, etc. to make your electronic devices more difficult to track. These channels have info on how to protect all of your electronic devices from spying on you.
- Erase yourself from the internet and social media.
- Diversify your assets and decentralize some of your money.
- Be the Grey Man (examples here, here, and here).
