Hard hitting editorial on gold-eagle site, using the recent finding that 19 out of 21 U.S. cities are not ready for Y2K as a backdrop.

This leads to wonder if Y2K may not be a deliberate strategy to:
1. Introduce a cashless economy so as to control the flow of all capital.
2. Introduce a global, NWO, to subjugate the sovereignty of all nations.
3. Punish our enemies, those that do not play according to capitalist rules.
If this is true, I wonder how long they will squeeze until the world's populace says uncle.

Given how much trouble it has been to convert Europe to the Euro, don't you think it would be a sizeable headache to try to convert the entire world to a cashless society? What about 3rd world nations where the infrastructure either isn't there for the majority of the populace, or isn't up to such a challenge? Frankly, I don't see some guy living in a Siberian yurt having access to an ATM. If paper money becomes worthless, wouldn't people without the technological means to exchange e-bucks resort to a barter economy? Sort of creates a dilemma when it comes to taxation and accurate reporting of goods and services. And here's another problem to consider...nations which clearly want nothing to do with the West (i.e. China). If we were to convert to a cashless society, I believe it would take not years, but decades. One of the things about the mythological New World Order is that their M.O. is supposedly seamless and invisible to those not privy to the workings of the inner circle. A catastrophic Y2K scenario sounds like a damn clunky way to go about this. IMHO.
