Central Bank Digital Currency Fail? Worldwide Resistance Against Central Banks Gains Momentum
Is the fear over the adoption of Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) being over-hyped? Nigeria has been used by some as an example of what may be coming to the U.S. in terms of rolling out a CBDC, as Nigeria is the first major country to do a mass rollout of CBDCs and attempt to replace cash. But now one year later, it appears that the rollout of the Nigerian CBDC, the eNaira, has been a total failure, as their Supreme Court has ruled it is "unconstitutional," and there are calls for arresting the head of the Central Bank in Nigeria. And in an article published today, March 23, 2023, it is being reported that the Nigeria Labour Congress is calling for public sector workers to start a nationwide strike next week, protesting at Central Bank branches, which could cripple the entire country. Within the past 30 days or so, several U.S. politicians have also come out publicly against Central Bank Digital Currencies. They include: U.S. Congressman Tom Emmer, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and Texas U.S. Senator Ted Cruz. What do these four politicians all have in common? They are all Republicans. You know, the party that used to hold the position that "all vaccines are safe and effective and the science has been settled," which was the position of ALL politicians, both Democrats and Republicans, until it was decided by the GOP in 2022 that it was OK to oppose one kind of "vaccine," the COVID shots, and therefore made it a political issue. And of course they only adopted this position AFTER hundreds of millions of Americans had already received their shots. This GOP position on the COVID shots, however, did not result in any action to either STOP injecting Americans with COVID-19 bioweapons, nor hold accountable those who approved them. So do we now trust them on their opposition to Central Bank CBDCs?
