How is this not anarchy?

The “dissolve occupy” movement benefits all the banksters. It would make a great story if someone could dig up the legions of people hired by big corporate america and the 1% to effectively disable the movement and still the discontent. The discontent is still there, but it’s quiet for now. Why is that? Now, that’s something worth reading about.

At that point people will be able to transmit “money” very simply while at the same time earning “discounts” that make services very affordable. So imagine having a $100 balance on your card with a “membership” that allows you to pay $1 for a haircut or $2 for a back adjustment from other “members”.

Goods, since they use raw materials, will still be a more difficult matter.

For example, person x is a plumber he charges x for man hours. Person x needs electrical work done on his house and can exchange man hours or “value for value” with person Y or other. No money was needed for this transaction, at all. Carbon credit of sorts.
