So why is there a "war" against cash, all of a sudden? Sure, governments and the central and private banks which control them can claim that this war is meant to prevent crimes and illicit activities, but are there deeper, longer term reasons involved? Especially considering what "money" is and how it has the capacity to so uniquely dictate human energy? Could the aim toward complete digitization of cash involve the wanting of complete control over each individual's economic affairs, and thereby, every person's ultimate existence?
And how do Bitcoin, other cryptocurrencies and the blockchain in general fit into all of this? Are, say, the simultaneous push for killing cash and introducing cryptocurrency trading via mobile phones in India purely coincidental?
