You're right. It's not for our own good at all. Australia seems to be the test bed for globalism at the moment. All the hard core jab mandates and sending children to camps to be jabbed without parental consent is pretty totalitarian if you ask me.Australia doesn't seem wary of CDBCs, though it's people should be.
Australia recently announced (Well, NSW at this stage, but other stages will follow suit shortly), that they are elimianting cash by 2022 moving to a virtual wallet currency by mid-2022. Eliminating local banks, and moving to a central banking system that the people have no choice in or control of (at present we control which banks we put out money in and how much and when).
All freedoms in that area will be gone. NSW's is expecting its people to move all of their money to a virtual wallet in 2022.
Not a good direction imho.
