Those who live in modern societies that are for the most part prosperous all have the civic duty of paying taxes to fund the government in its responsibilities in serving those elected for that purpose. For the first time in human history a system has come into common practice where every Penney earned and spent can now be monitored by direct deposit of money into the bank, and the use of credit and debit cards along with apps that can be scanned with your smart phone to pay for goods and services automatically, and lets not forget the bar-code symbol that now appears on just about anything that can be purchased.
We are now programmed to always have our GPS activated phone close by so it can ping the closest cell tower with our precise location. They are now giving away phones to any adult with an ID card. When was the last time you saw a pay phone in a public place except for bus and train stations? Clark Kent would have a hell of a time changing into his Superman outfit today.
Paper money will still be around for the lower class members of our society at least for the time being. Are we already in the times mentioned in the Bible where the only way you can survive is to have the “mark of the beast” in one’s possession. At this point in time, anything is possible for those we have given the power to govern us.
