Seriously? Why on earth would people want to have all money transactions be done online or with a credit card?
It seems like an good thing on paper and don’t get me wrong, cashless transactions does have its benefits such as convenience, swiftness and safety from pickpockets. But a 100% cashless society? That’s a fucking terrible idea
Do you have any idea how easy it would be to bring a cashless society to its knees? Cyber attacks would LITERALLY fuck the entire country over. Oh? The electricity in your city has gone off? Good luck trying to pay for your groceries
What? Terrorists have shutdown the nations online banking system? Good luck trying to buy the most basic of fucking utilities
Oh? Literally my entire life’s savings in gone because somebody hacked my account? That’s a bummer :(
Obviously an entirely cash based society has its downsides, but we cannot strive for an entirely cashless society either. We need co-existence with cash and non-cash based transactions
Countries such as Sweden are trying to be the first cashless society, but people are pointing out that makes them all the more vulnerable to aggressive foreign powers
