"Ah but it surely's Digital now". "Digital" a word whose origins lie within the latin digitalis, from digitus ("finger, toe"); now it is use is synonymous with computer systems and televisions, cameras, music players, watches, etc, etc, etc. But what of digital money or even digital democracy?

The printing press caused a revolution in its time, hailed as a democratic pressure for good by many. Books available to the lots was certainly a revolution; and now we even have e-books and technological units to read them with. The truth that the unique words have been encoded right into a numerical type and decoded back to words electronically does not imply we belief less the words we're reading, but we should prefer the aesthetics of a physical book than a piece of high-tech plastic which must have its battery charged to keep working.

To reply this we must ask what of money, how are we to grasp it, use it and incorporate it into a sustainable model of a 'higher world for all?' Cash, not like every other form of property, is exclusive in that it may be used for anything previous to an occasion even occurring. It implies nothing, yet can be utilized for great good or nice evil, and yet it is just what it's regardless of its many manifestations and consequences. It is a distinctive however much misunderstood and misused commodity. Money has the simplicity of facilitating shopping for and promoting, and a mathematical complexity as demonstrated by the monetary markets; and yet it has no notion of egalitarianism, moral or ethical determination making. It acts as an autonomous entity, but it is each endogenous and exogenous to the global community. It has no personality and is well exchangeable, but it's handled as a finite useful resource within the world context, its development governed by a set of complicated guidelines which decide the way in which it may behave.

These cash switch corporations who extract wealth from the system could change into dis-intermediated by way of the usage of such an infrastructure.
