In George Orwell’s book, 1984 he stated, “Big brother is watching you.” He described a world where there were no secrets, where big government knew everything about you, probably more than you knew about yourself. This was written in 1949. Now, 73 years later the future that struck fear into the hearts and minds of readers is now. Privacy has become a relic of the past, and reality exists in the human mind, and nowhere else.
As humans our normalcy bias is the greatest danger to ourselves. By that I mean what? What you thought was safe and reasonable in the past is not necessarily the same in the present and the future because as the world changes, as the economy changes, as politics change, we need to change in accordance with that not just to survive, but to thrive.
We sit on the precipice of a currency change like nothing that has ever been experienced in human existence. Executive Order 14067 signed into law on March 9, 2022 moved the United States at a blazing speed into the world Orwell envision back in 1949 where under this executive order, if one plays out the potential outcomes of the inter-agency and multinational cooperation spelled out in the order, a central bank digital currency (“CBDC”) allows for:
According to a speech by Dr. Pippa Malmgren at the World Government Forum in Abu Dhabi earlier this year, CBDCs provide for complete clarity of transactions and will be implemented in accordance with “programmable money.” The ramifications of this are the government will be able to turn off your bank account at the touch of a button, track and record every purchase you make, and ultimately protect against money laundering and trafficking which all of us would view as a desirable outcome, but the undesirable outcome is that for political, social, or economic misalignment, your ability to buy or sell could be shut off.
About 90% of central banks globally are considering such a move to CBDCs in which there is clarity of transactions. This is not about financial freedom, but rather about the loss of freedom and complete control of our political, economic, religious, personal and health freedoms. Ardous Huxley in Brave New World stated, “A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude.”
We are all about to become slaves in this brave new world, but there are solutions to investing privately in this new paradigm where you don’t have to settle for surviving. You can thrive.
