Zero Hedge: The idea of “fiat money”, money which has no tangibility and that can be created on a whim by a central source or authority, is rather new in the grand scheme of things. It is a bastardization of the original and much more stable money system that existed before that was anchored in hard commodities. While it claims to offer a more “liquid” store of value, the truth is that it is no store of value at all.
The king of this delusion is the US dollar. As the world reserve currency it is thought by some to be “untouchable”, a pillar of the globalist structure that will be defended for many decades to come. The reality, however, is that the dollar is nothing more than another con game on paper to the globalists; a farce that they are happy to sacrifice in order to further their goals of complete centralization of world trade and therefore the complete centralization of control over human survival.
That is to say, the dollar is a stepping stone for them, nothing more.
The real goal of the globalists is an economic system in which they can monitor every transaction no matter how small; a system in which there is eventually only one currency, a currency that can be tracked, granted or taken away at a moment’s notice. more …
Opinion: I am not sure I have seen a better non-Biblical interpretation of Revelation 13:16-17 than that last paragraph:
I can’t tell you how many times I have heard Christians say that every generation thought they were the final generation as if that were proof that it is not.
But, there has been no time in history that a lone currency could have been tracked, granted or taken away at a moment’s notice, until this generation, and two apostles prophesied exactly what would happen:
2 Peter 3:3-4 said there would be scoffers:
“knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”
John, Rev. 16:17-18 said that a single trackable currency would come in the last days:
“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
