I’ve been curious about this … my favorite courses in college were in business law, which included such ideas as “legal tender.” Given that money is a necessary concept, there has to be some means whereby we all agree that there is a common and accepted means of exchange. We use currency. Once upon a time we used the gold standard, and then silver certificates, but all of that was tossed out the window, and we now use Federal Reserve Notes.
On those notes you will find the words “This note is legal tender for all debts, public and private.” What I took away from that was that if I offer you Federal Reserve notes in payment, which is now how we do everything, and you refuse to accept it as payment, no matter, the debt is settled. An exception was made in that we were not allowed to pay debts in pennies, that is, I could not pain-in-the-ass you by making you accept a wheel barrow full of them as payment, just to piss you off.
So I drove through a line for a new coffee shop recently, and rather than pay at the window, I encountered a person at the curb who said that they do not accept currency as payment, only credit cards. So I paid using that device. But I wondered … I had offered Federal Reserve notes. When refused, should I have not have received free coffee in exchange? The debt was paid by legal tender.
It is a new coffee shop, and their coffee was served in styrofoam, which I hate, and was overpriced. However, the overlords want to do away with currency and replace it with plastic. They are using the fake virus as justification. But the obvious inference from this is that bank cards can be turned on and off at will, a means of social control. Currency, no matter how fraudulent, is free exchange.
The fake virus is so useful to totalitarians!
