Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Cash is dead. If that statement is too strong, perhaps it is better to say that cash is dying. The nature of paper money is too transient for the global economy and the revolution of electronic cash transfers are only the beginning. What I propose is a method to limit an undemocratic government's control over the banking rights of the populace without degrading a free society's ability to collect taxes.

Step one is create a global, digital currency. This would eliminate the idea of inflation while, in theory, stabilizing the world's economy. One could also argue that it makes some countries more vulnerable to the speculative excesses of other countries but that is a discussion for financial regulation.

Step two would be the creation of national regulatory structures that would monitor legal income without any of the hassles of tax filing (those of you in the less developed world have no idea what you're missing). The balance of the governmental oversight would be any and every government's inability to see anything more than suspiciously large cash transfers or the tax information itself. While the details of how this would happen are understandably vague, the possibilities are still real.

Lastly, the system would require secure methods of balance checking, cash transfer and identification all of which could be accomplished through one's phone. Whether the phone-based system uses something similar to an RFID chip or a text message is irrelevant, but people need to be able to move money rapidly and from anywhere. An additional quid pro quo would be the distancing of a government's ability to interfere with the cash transfer system in the cases where the cell phone companies are government run.

So, that's a very brief idea for how we could free the world from the 'tyranny' of the physical cash. I'm not a visionary so I don't know all the implications but I think a balance could be struck to minimize risk.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
