Once upon a time, there was very few ways to monitor people. Now it is an ongoing process. Big Brother is here and he is Google/Amazon.

No it is NOT inevitable. That is a counsel of despair and must be rejected root, branch and all. We are to fight EVERY move toward a "cashless society" and encourage our family and neighbors to do likewise.

Why would you even give the impression to wring your hands and do nothing to stop and reverse this? Same applies to me and to others. Fight back! It is NOT inevitable!

That this trend will come IS inevitable, since cash is failing quickly. Even banks are investing in Cryptocurrency. That it will succeed and remain is the only hope we have and that is what is also inevitable; that the cashless society will collapse on itself over time. People will use barter, jewelry and precious metals and other means of transferring wealth and the currency will reappear, but not as it is today.

Ha! I do manual. I write the items I need on a notepad, go into the pantry and check if the items on the list are already stocked; I open the fridge to do the same thing. I later proceed to the grocery store. I then come home and shelve the bought items myself.
Unfortunately I don't have any "fun facts" about me unless being a practicing Catholic counts.

Trying to get better every day week.

No, it is NOT the "only hope we have" as you claim, nor is it inevitable. We are not to sit on our hands as this is going on. We are to fight back. You give the impression that all is lost regarding the trend toward a "cashless society". Fight back! Don't just sit there and do nothing! Fight back!

Any suggestions?

Personally, a good strategy for survival during the turmoil of this change is the best strategy. Tactics won't do it. The gargantuan is moving and it will eventually fall. We should prepare to survive the fall and last until this cashless movement dies the death it will surely come to.

Informing ourselves and our neighbors about this. Getting information on both laws and court cases that are working to reverse this trend. Putting public pressure on those persons and organizations pushing this cashless tripe to reverse themselves. And above all not despairing and doing nothing.

We already lost the battle with money once we went off the gold standard. Those pieces of paper are worth as much as the market says they're worth and that's it. There's nothing real backing it up. A piece of paper that says $100 is worth the same as a computer screen that says I have $100 in my account.
Blood of Christ, relief of the burdened, save us.
