Slaves usually want to please their master.  That's why they want to use the currency their master tells them to use.  To them, something has to be written "legal tender" on it, otherwise it is worthless.

Slaves takes a huge part of contemporary economy.   When you enter a grocery store, chances are that the guy behind the desk is an employee who works for the shop owner.  And chances are that this shop owner is indebted to some banks.  All those people will want you to pay them with the national currency, the only one that government officially supports.

Enjoying paper as a currency is their right.  So we won't try too hard to convince them to use real money.   Slave money is cheap anyway, since the masters keep printing so much of it all the time.

So we just have to buy this slave money whenever we need it, and exchange it against bitcoins or precious metals whenever someone gives us some.

This is a good phrase to use... "Slave Money". I like it.

Sounds... sticky.  

Slave money.


It's like "Snail Mail". Remember that phrase?


"Don't worry, slave money comes with a note from your master: 'legal tender.'"

Slave money!  I love it and will start to use it.  Right up there with TPTW, the powers that were.  Words and phrases have power.  We remain as slaves only as long as we see ourselves as slaves.
