All very true, NI. I was thinking about this too, although more along the lines of ‘what would happen if my card stopped working’ and ‘what if I lost it?’ as well as ‘what do those people do who don’t have accounts here, from tramps to tourists?’
But you’re right, there are lots of other far-reaching implications of this unbidden shift towards cashlessness, which we should all be concerned about, not least of which is the massive power the bullying behemoth banks will come to wield. They already effectively own our houses, businesses, and wages/salaries, and with cashlessness, seem set to become masters of the universe by stealth.
What chance another economic collapse, based on their immoral behaviour in the past??
