Right now, you happily let them do that because they have all these gimmicks they have the audacity to call 'cash back' - they give you back a couple of points from the points they take from the seller. Once you have no choice but to use your device or card - so that every transaction can be tracked back to an individual - these "cash back" offers will go away. You'll just be grateful to be allowed to buy things, just like you've been trained successfully to be grateful the TSA let you on a plane, or on a train, or into a sports event, or into a mall, or into your school, or where ever the Federal Police set up. Driverless will be the same thing, now they will be able to tax you for your useage, in addition to your gas tax and excise taxes and property tax and income tax and all the other taxes they use for roads. Cashless is fascist. Its that simple. There will be a secret no pay list just like there is a secret no travel list.
Exactly! War On Cash Is War On Freedom!
and all that smart cars, smart fridges, smart phones, smart houses technology...."so cool".
