Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk follow up the episode on money by talking about its newest form, Cryptocurrency, and its fragility similar to modern centralized banking. They discuss the origins of banking and changes made to it over time by the Dutch, the Swedish, and the English, currency as a mark of sovereignty, and the possibility of digital currency used by a centralized bank to control society.
Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk talk about preparing for economic collapse and answer a listener question about reading books. They then delve into the history of surveillance in early America: its technological limitations, its use before and during WWI, the growing desire for surveillance with increasing ethnic and ideological diversity, increasing possibility for surveillance with advances in technology and the urbanization of the American population, and finally, how slavery to the system is its ultimate goal.
