Please understand the strong sarcasm in the following short writing. But first, watch this video I posted here. It’s only about four minutes long.
I Put A Payment Chip In My Hand To Replace My Wallet
In our few thousand years of history, dictators have come and gone. Nero, Mao Zedong, Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Ho Chi Minh and Mugabe, just to mention the most well-known. But in this modern enlightened world we are so much smarter, so much more advanced and we have learned so much from history! I see the promise of eternal democracy fulfilled and there’s no doubt, it’s guaranteed there will not be another dictator ever again.
Therefore, I will bravely take a microchip and welcome the cashless society! I will always be able to pay for anything I need, because no government can and will remotely disable my chip when I disagree. Welcome to the age of no more dictators!
