‘Submitting to digital currencies would be an abusive relationship’

December 9, 2022

DIGITAL SLAVERY: “As my dear friend and colleague Neil Oliver says ‘freedom to transact trumps all others. A world where the Bank of England – and by extension the Government – knows where you can spend every single penny – that is a world without freedom.” – Father Calvin Robinson on the dangers of digital currencies.

HARD CASH: “Now imagine if a Government could incentivize our behaviour by controlling our spending habits. We have seen a huge push to digital transactions with the cap on contactless payments increasing from £20 to £100 last year. If we want to keep hold of tangible payment methods, we need to remember ‘use it or lose it’. Cash is king.” Calvin Robinson describing the crucial freedom cash gives in his Common Sense Crusade podcast.

 

 

 

A TEACHER turned journalist and clergyman has been sounding out the dangers of the digital gulag the public is walking into if they abandon the use of cash.

Father Calvin Robinson, a deacon with the Free Church of England was making the case for continuing to use cash on his Common Sense Crusade with GB News.

‘Banks double speak over abusive relationships’

An advert from HSBC Bank drew his attention about the financial abuse suffered by a partner in 95 per cent of abusive relationships and he thought it was “an important conversation to be had” but he believes that this advert and the advent of Central Bank Digital Currencies was “foreshadowing our own future”.

So he was inferring that whilst banks were rightly pointing to the issue of financial abuse in these settings, digital currencies would give unlimited powers to the Banks and the State to become that “abusive partner” themselves.

Calvin highlighted an article by Tim Walker in The Daily Telegraph from 21 June 2021 where the Bank of England was openly discussing “digital cash could be programmed to ensure it is only spent on essentials, or goods which an employer or Government deems to be sensible.”

‘When a Bank says where you can spend your money, it isn’t freedom’

The clergyman said: “Imagine a world where money is no longer printed, created on a computer. A computer that says where you can spend your money; what you can spend it on and how much you can spend.

“A world where the Bank of England – and by extension the Government – knows where you can spend every single penny – that is a world without freedom.

‘Freedom to transact trumps all others’

“As my dear friend and colleague Neil Oliver says ‘freedom to transact trumps all others’.

“I believe that we have been in an abusive relationship with our Government for a number of years now.

“They took away our civil liberties; they locked us in our homes and mandated that our care home workers to partake in some medical procedures.

“The Government employed behavioural scientists in order to influence our opinions of the British public, the so-called ‘Nudge Unit’ that was established in the Cabinet Office in 2010 by David Cameron’s Government to apply behaviourial science to public policy.

‘Nudge unit is public policy, not a conspiracy theory’

“I think there is a ‘nudge unit’ plot to increase compliance, propagandizing to increase uptake of the jab, and the ‘nudge unit’ is not conspiracy theory, it is published government policy.

To add to what Calvin is saying, it is worth remembering that many of the protesters on the Canadian trucker convoy had their accounts frozen on the orders of the Canadian deputy prime minister Christia Freeland and PayPal has inserted in its terms and conditions that it can take up to $2,500USD directly from their customer’s bank accounts on what it perceives as misinformation.

‘CBDCs are not a risk worth taking’

“Now imagine if a Government could incentivize our behaviour by controlling our spending habits.

“It is a risk not worth taking. Less than 20 per cent of all transactions in this country are made using cash. At the same time bank branches are being closed left, right and centre, often using the pandemic and lockdown as an excuse.

“We have seen a huge push to digital transactions with the cap on contactless payments increasing from £20 to £100 last year and now Master Card and Apple Pay are allowing transactions above that limit in certain shops across the UK.

“If we want to keep hold of tangible payment methods, we need to remember ‘use it or lose it’. Cash is king.”
