RFK Jr: Plans for ‘Cashless Society’ Are about ‘Control and Oppression’

Democrat presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has issued a warning to the public about the global plans to abolish physical cash to create “cashless societies.”

In an interview with The New York Post, RFK Jr., the nephew of President John F. Kennedy, took a deep dive into the topic of currency and the coming “digital cash” era.

As Slay News previously reported, Democrat President Joe Biden has ordered the Federal Reserve to implement a CBDC that will replace traditional money as a “digital dollar.”

The move from Biden falls in line with the agenda of the World Economic Forum (WEF), the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and other globalist interests.

The WEF has been pushing the technology for some time, gloating that “digital cash” will offer a handful of powerful elites “absolute control” over the world’s populations.

Slay News recently reported on a WEF agent boasting during a globalist summit that one of the “benefits” of “digital cash” is that governments can control what citizens can and can’t pay for.

During the WEF’s recent Annual Meeting of the New Champions in Communist China, Tolani Senior Professor of Trade Policy at Cornell University Eswar Prasad gave a chilling insight into the rationale behind the globalist elite’s interest in pushing toward a cashless society.

Prasad spoke about the coming Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) and how unelected authoritarians will be able to control the public by managing the regulation of society’s spending.

According to Prasad, a top economics expert and former International Monetary Fund (IMF) official, the coming CBDC-only cashless society will be regulated to ensure that people comply with what is considered to be “desirable.”

Prasad spoke at the gathering, also known as “Summer Davos,” bluntly stating the “benefits of digital money” include the “programmability” of citizens.

For example, the government could control what products citizens are allowed to purchase with digital currencies.

He gloated that people will be blocked from buying “less desirable” items such as “ammunition.”

Prasad said, “The government decides that units of central bank money can be used to purchase some things but not other things that it deems less desirable like say, ammunition or drugs or pornography or things of the sort.”

RFK Jr. has been raising the alarm over the emergence of “digital cash” as many are praising the “convenience” of the technology while ignoring the obvious dangers.

Kennedy’s warning about Biden’s plans for a “digital dollar” is clear: CBDCs, in his estimation, are “instruments of control and oppression, and are certain to be abused.”

Elsewhere in the interview, RFK Jr. unfolded his candid views on Bitcoin, expressed trepidations over central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), and rang the bell of caution around artificial intelligence (AI).

Kennedy plans to “support Bitcoin and the freedom to transact,” and enable individuals to wield command over “Bitcoin wallets, nodes, and passwords.”

In his world, regulatory fetters would be whittled down to the bare essentials to curb money laundering.

On Wednesday, Kennedy announced his plans to progressively back the U.S. dollar with Bitcoin and precious metals if he is elected president.

Speaking at a July 19 Heal-the-Divide PAC event, Kennedy claimed that backing the U.S. dollar with what he called “hard currency,” including gold, silver, platinum, or Bitcoin, could help to re-stabilize the American economy.

“Backing dollars and U.S. debt obligations with hard assets could help restore strength back to the dollar, rein in inflation, and usher in a new era of American financial stability, peace, and prosperity,” he said at the event.

Kennedy explained the process would be gradual and that, depending on the plan’s success, he’d adjust the amount of backing for the dollar.

“My plan would be to start very, very small; perhaps 1% of issued T-bills would be backed by hard currency, by gold, silver, platinum or Bitcoin,” he said.

Additionally, Kennedy declared he would make Bitcoin to U.S. dollar conversions exempt from capital gains taxes.

Kennedy also locked horns with Biden’s proposed crypto tax, a formidable 30%.

He’s not alone in this battle cry; his rival from the Republican stables, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, shares a kindred spirit.

His disquiet was not merely consigned to the domain of cryptocurrency; artificial intelligence was equally ensnared in his critical lens.

Kennedy called for the global harnessing of AI, citing figures like Elon Musk, whose advocacy for free speech he commended.

The omens, as he foresees, are grave.

He warns that AI could be abused and used to “control narratives, create illusions, surveil our activities to dictate our behaviors and enforce compliance, and ultimately enslave humanity.”
