Gaining Freedom in A Moneyless Society

Gaining Freedom in a Money-less Society

It may seem convenient to swipe a card and have everything including our cash, credit, and identification information available on just a few bytes.

However, it also means that corporations will have more information about people’s lifestyles, habits, desires, and needs than they could possibly desire. Advertising will become even more focused, direct, and invasive in our daily lives. It will become increasingly harder to hide any personal information. We will leave a virtual trail of data in our footsteps. We will benefit from a reduction in crime, but it will be at the price of freedom. The answer to crime is justice and fairness between the government and the governed, which currently caters to the upper class. The fact is that today's laws and priorities of the government create the problems, and any system that takes away freedom only gives more power to a dysfunctional system. The reason there is crime is because the government is incapable of meeting the needs of the people.

Perhaps, the belief that the government and corporations might abuse the abundance of information available under a money-less society is attributable to paranoia, but why even allow the opportunity to exist? Why give the banks anymore power than they have? Banks already operate like they are some type of governmental agency, but they are really just corporations. Why give them business if we don't have to?

We can create our own money-less society, which will empower us and join us together. A network of people willing to trade goods and services would minimize or eliminate the transactions occurring with corporations and the government. We will gain a sense of personal freedom, which is becoming rare in the age of information.
