Pandemic: A Cover for a Cashless Transformation?

Major shifts, often seismic in nature, in social order have always been preceded by some tumultuous events, threats of war used as a social lubricant for flipping public opposition, financial collapses triggered to expand/protect financial influences and interest, economic collapse used to expand government control or shift or affect economic rewards, assassinations (including attempts) used to expand police powers, terrorist claims used to restrict movement and so on. Interesting though is that there has yet to be a case were expanded authorities or economic interests, war or surrendering of personal liberties have ever prevented or limited a nascent threat; yes indeed, the war to end all wars seems (always) to be beyond the reach of the next promise.
