A Dream About New Currency
I had a dream this morning about a new type of currency that was issued. For whatever reason (it wasn’t given in the dream) the dollar was no longer being used as currency. Instead, people were issued a limited amount of a new type of currency.
By ‘new type’ of currency, I mean it was spent differently. The values of the new currency were hard to understand. There were rules for spending it and many people didn’t understand the rules. The rules restricted what and how much you could buy. The currency appeared to be made of plastic material – not unlike the bills Australia currently has.
Money was re-supplied either daily or weekly and you had to budget your spending because the supply you received was small. It was almost like you had an account and a certain amount was credited to your account every week. [This was the content of the dream]
I tend to interpret my own dreams about money literally, rather than figuratively. I’ll admit, that makes for a narrow path of interpretation.
Given the dreams I’ve had in the past about money and knowing what I do about the global economic situation, it’s hard for me not take this as a literal dream about a change of monetary policy.
I find it difficult to believe that the political powers in office today could be completely blind to the possibility of an economic meltdown. On the contrary; I think they see ominous signs of trouble ahead and I think they’re making preparations for it.
China’s government has for years, urged its citizens to buy and hold physical gold.
The only logical reason I can think of (given that China is still a communist nation) is that they see a collapse of their own currency coming and the government plans to confiscate privately held gold as a means of acquiring assets that can be used in the aftermath of the collapse. Why else would a communist government care if its citizens owned gold?
While the Chinese government has the power to seize private assets, the US government would have a difficult time pulling that off, because the US has a well-armed population.
While the outright seizure of private assets would be difficult, I wouldn’t put it past our government to attempt to gain control of private pensions (covertly) in order to use them as an asset to stave off a debt crisis. In fact, there’s been a lot of talk recently about allowing the Fed to assume control of private pension plans. The argument being used is that private citizens don’t know how to invest wisely and the Fed argues that it could do a better job.
I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but it seems unwise to hand over the control of private pensions to a government deeply in debt. The fact that the European central bank just confiscated hundreds of millions of dollars of privately held assets in Cyprus to offset bad debt, should be a sign that international monetary policy is changing.
I suspect that the purchase of millions of rounds of ammunition by the Department of Homeland Security, the Social Security Administration and other non-military federal agencies is a clue to their strategy. Why would the government feel there was a need to arm non-military departments unless they were expecting trouble?
And if they’re expecting trouble, why kind of trouble do they expect?
When the government can no longer pay its financial obligations – things are going to get ugly.
When federal pension, social security, and disability checks can’t be cashed because the Fed has run out of money, all hell will break loose. People will begin rioting and the Fed will try to protect its turf, which might be why they’re stockpiling ammo now.
Down the road – after the dollar has been devalued to point of worthlessness, there must be some type of currency issued to keep things rolling along and it wouldn’t be hard to imagine a limited supply of a new currency being issued in the wake of a collapse. This dream could illustrate the new currency and how it will be used.
The way that the currency was issued and spent in the dream is similar to how food stamps work today. A limited supply is issued and only certain things can be purchased. The government tightly controls the entire process.
When the government becomes the source of a nation’s provision, they must, out of necessity set the standard of living low, to provide for the needs of everyone. That’s the price you pay when you allow the government to become your provider.
It might be a good idea to pray against this scenario unless it’s one you happen to like.
