Why Physical Cash?
As we all know, we have come to a point in time where we have basically been forced into an almost cashless society. Just about everything has gone digital and has become a convenient form of payment for all of us. But is the convenience worth it? Let’s dive into this a little further and see why using physical cash, whenever possible, in the Parallel Economy is so important.
The Biggest Big of Them All
We talk about Big Tech, Big Government, and Big Pharma, but what Big controls them? Yes, you guessed it. The Biggest big, the controlling Big…The Central Banks. From the time we started working, we learned about paying income tax and were told it’s just one of those things in life that we have to do. We were never taught that it is, in fact, a form of theft.
“we were never taught that it is, in fact, a form of theft.”
Gradually, through time, we saw many changes. From writing checks to debit cards, from depositing or cashing checks to direct deposit, to being forced to accept payroll cards over receiving checks if we didn’t have a bank account, and so on and so forth. But why? Was it for convenience or something else? Why not physical cash?
Fees, Fees, and More Fees
If you were one of the money-hungry, so-called “elite” that run the world, would payroll taxes be enough to assuage your greed? Call me crazy, but I’m thinking that would be a huge, resounding, NO!
“if you ere one of the money-hungry, so-called ‘elite’ that run the world, would payroll taxes be enough to assuage your greed?”
We know banks charge perhaps a monthly service fee and account overdraft fees (funny how they even allow overdrafts, isn’t it?), not to mention, how fast a simple overdraft fee can increase into hundreds of dollars since it’s added to daily until you can manage to add money to your account, which by then, is absorbed by the accumulated fees and you’re left with zero money. This isn’t a problem if you keep your own physical cash.
But, ohhh, those Bankers…You just made their day!
Now that we’re all things digital, let’s think about ATM fees. Have you ever paid attention to how there’s a processing fee to use the machine AND a processing fee for the bank? So basically, a minimum of five dollars per ATM transaction. But wait, there’s more! Once upon a time, we were able to withdraw a few hundred per transaction, right? Now, many machines are limited to one hundred dollars per transaction which forces people, in some circumstances, to have to make at least one more. What does that mean? The more transactions, the more fees collected for the banks, and even less money for you.
“the more transactions, the more fees collected for the banks, and even less money for you.”
Then, in some cases, there are processing fees for online bill pay, and how about that extra five to ten-cent charge if you use a debit or credit card to pay for fuel at the gas station? Those fees add up and where do they go? Would you be paying those fees if you used physical cash?

2 Possibilities, 2 Outcomes
I’m about to share two scenarios that I recently read in a post.
Scenario One Imagine, if you will, you have a $50 bill. You go to a restaurant and pay for your dinner with it. The restaurant owner may then use that bill to pay for laundry, and the owner of the laundry facility uses that to pay for his barber, and the barber decides to use it for groceries. After being used for an unlimited number of payments, that bill still remains $50 and has fulfilled its use for everyone who has used it. The bank has gained nothing!
Scenario Two So what if you, and everyone after you (i.e. the restaurant owner, laundry owner, barber, etc.), decides to pay digitally with your cards? The bank fee charged to the seller (restaurant owner) is about 3%, so $1.50 for that transaction, and $1.50 for each of the transactions mentioned above that follow. Therefore, after 30 transactions, $45 of that original $50 has become the property of the bank because of all the fees collected from the digital transactions.
Now, imagine how much a single retailer would pay per month if 90% of their transactions were digital at a 3% fee through their machines. If, for example, they had $50,000 per month in digital sales. They would be charged $1,500 per month by the bank. Do you realize that would add up to $18,000 per year for that one retailer? Money that should belong to them, but nooo! The Big Banks think everything we work hard for is theirs for the taking. This is why you should use physical cash.
Imagine handing all that money over to a woke, ESG-loving, anti-conservative Big Bank. We know that there are Patriotic Payment Alternatives out there, but until they become more widely used, the chances are that your digital payments will be lining the pockets of businesses that don’t support your values. Why not use physical cash instead?
“the big banks think everything we work hard for is theirs for the taking.”
Don’t get me wrong, I understand we’re in an age where many of our purchases are done online now. I do it myself. What I am saying is whenever we shop locally, or in person anywhere (like vacations, etc.), we should stop to consider and maybe make it a point to pay with physical cash when the opportunity presents itself.
It’s time to put those Overbloated Banksters on a diet, don’t you think? Let’s show them the Rebels we have become and the impact the parallel economy can have in taking down the Matrix System.
