I’ve had a long-term privately-held desire to reduce my cash-footprint to zero (aka living simply, having no money etc). In this regard I’ve used Trade Exchanges, barter and suchlike extensively over the years.
I will still live well and pay taxes and do business and obey the laws of the land, but I now really want to remove my reliance on and use of the decidedly shaky and rather shady creation of the Central Banking Cartel. My desire has moved from ‘back burner’ to ‘front burner’ since I emmigrated to Samoa (as I’ve lived off capital for three years and spare cash has all but dried up).
Many of us, especially since 2008, are starting to really recognise that there is a big problem with a monetary system that appears destined to fail and that “feeds the few” at the expense of the masses. These are actually two separate issues but they are widely perceived as one problem. This is a fatal mistake. We must separate the SYSTEM from the PURPOSE before we can “get to zero”.
Let’s race into it . . . “zero” is waiting!
