Western nations begin criminalizing cash purchases to stop "terrorists"
Never letting a good crisis go to waste, the European country of France has announced that it will soon implement restrictive new measures on anonymous cash withdrawals and purchases in the wake of the widely publicized Charlie Hebdo attacks.
Claiming that the freedom to use non-trackable currency facilitates "low-cost terrorism," French Finance Minister Michel Sapin contends that the people of France will have to forego even more of their liberties in order to keep everyone safe -- Hoorah!
In order to fight the manufactured "war on terror," residents of France will now be prohibited from making cash purchases of more than 1,000 euros, down from the current limit of 3,000 euros. Converting euros to other currencies will also be reduced to 1,000 euros, down from the current 8,000-euro limit.
The goal is to force everyone into using only trackable payment systems like credit cards, which allow government spying and surveillance of people's purchasing habits. And this major invasion of personal privacy, claims Sapin, is absolutely necessary to beat all them terrorists!
