Phase 1 for cashless Australia complete with your help and approval

The corporate agenda of full control over the monitoring and movement of the masses is in full swing in Australia.

One method that thwarts monitoring the movements of the masses is something called cash and where it goes.

As a response the corporation conglomerate has a 'solution' for this, where it is mandated (like in a dictatorship / fascist state) by whichever unlawful law they choose to call an Act or even put in place without something called 'due process', which seems more likely by the people in government today.
The government has implemented a cashless (part of) society who are literally 'owned' by a corporation called Centrelink which is unlawfully responsible for handing out government payments to welfare recipients.

In this instance, the 'excuse' given is because the Indigenous population is using cash to purchase illegal drugs, legal alcohol and maybe even legal or illegal (untaxed) cigarettes, use the legal services of gambling venues or even the services of (unregistered therefore untaxed therefore illegal) whores, the caring people in government  came up with the idea to limit one's choices in what one can purchase for cash apparently for their benefit.

Another excuse the government is 'marketing' is lost alleged tax revenue from the 'little people' whereas the government is fully supporting tax avoidance from corporate giants the likes of Apple, Google and Microsoft (just to name a few in the I.T. sector) conducting business in Australia.

As a result of the forced policy from the wise people in government, they now claim that it has been a success.

Now the largest problem the commoner / the 'ordinary' person / the tax slave has, is that the word of the government  cannot be independently  verified as true.

The people in government deliberately provide false information (read lie) regarding results of  policies and /or law or statistics in order to push through their corporate agenda which in direct conflict to their 'job' of serving the people.

The so called 'honourable' administration of the High Court has been deceiving the good people of Australia since 1973, where only this corruption was exposed in 2017, where Australia's Attorney-General George Brandis has been in on it.

With every new implementation / addition to current laws the people in government are taking away the rights and choices the masses have without the general population even flinching.

Since the people did not act when the government took cash away from the Indigenous population, when the government will come for the rest of the population will the people wake up?

Very doubtful.

Cashless welfare card ‘a success’: report

 Human Services Minister Alan Tudge says the cashless welfare card has led to obvious improvements in two trial communities. Picture: Aaron Francis/The Australian.

A CASHLESS welfare card trial is being hailed as a success despite reports of some card holders turning to prostitution or “humbugging” to hack the system. 
The Turnbull Government has welcomed an independent audit which found the year-long trials in Ceduna and the East Kimberley have greatly reduced rates of substance abuse and gambling in the communities.

Cashless welfare cards will now be implemented permanently in the two regions, subject to six-monthly reviews.

The government will also look to expand the program to other areas.

But the report by ORIMA Research, to be released today, also shows some recipients have been hacking the system to get cash.

Under the scheme, first flagged by businessman and philanthropist Andrew Forrest in 2014, welfare recipients receive 80 per cent of their payment on a cashless debit card, which can’t be used to buy alcohol or gamble.

The other 20 per cent goes into their bank account.

The report found there had been “a couple of examples of suspected prostitution” to obtain cash and instances of merchants “overcharging for a product or services and then refunding the difference in cash,” ABC reports.

There had also been reports of more “humbugging” or pestering family or friends for money.

But the report concluded the trial had been effective in decreasing alcohol consumption, drug use and gambling and met the medium-term goals for related harms.

Human Services Minister Alan Tudge said the card was not a panacea but it had led to obvious improvements in the trial communities.

“Inevitably, people would prefer to have fewer restrictions than more restrictions, particularly if you are an alcoholic, but the evaluation and the data shows that it is having a positive net impact on reducing alcoholism, gambling and illicit substance abuse,” Mr Tudge said.

“The rights of the community, of the children and of elderly citizens to live in a safe community are equally important as the rights of welfare recipients.”

Nearly a quarter of people using the card reported less alcohol and drug use in their communities, and 27 per cent reported a drop in gambling.

Card users who said they were drinkers before the trial began also reported a 25 per cent drop in binge drinking.

Almost a third of users reported being able to better care for their children and save more money.
About 41 per cent of community members not on welfare reported less drinking in their area since the trial began and 46 per cent said it had made life in the area better.

However, about half of the card users reported the card made their lives worse.

Many users also experienced problems with the card, although the report suggested a lot of errors were down to merchants not understanding the system.

About 86 per cent of declined transactions between April and September were due to user errors or because there was not enough money left in the card user’s account.

The report found reductions in alcohol consumption, illegal drug use and gambling have been “largely driven by the impact of the debit card quarantining mechanism and not by the additional services provided.”

Minister Tudge said there has been no decisions on whether to expand the trials to new sites.

Labor leader Bill Shorten said the opposition had been open to trialling the cards in Ceduna and the East Kimberley but needed to examine the results.

“We were certainly very concerned, in particular to see what we could do to reduce the scourge of alcohol abuse, but we are reserving judgment until we fully study the results (of the review),” he told reporters in Melbourne.

Greens senator Rachel Siewert said the extension would come as a shock to many who were told they would only be on the card for a year.

“The report released today shows that half of the participants felt the card made their life worse,” she said.

The evaluation was largely based on perceptions for the first three months. “It is not the full year and should not be used to justify extending the trial,” Senator Siewert said.
