Maybe I'm wrong about this, but maybe I'm not, but isn't most money an illusion. Isn't there only a small fraction of physical dollars actually in existence? Other than their giant homes, pricey cars and other modes of transportation, gold, silver and whatever, isn't wealth these days simply a matter of saying someone has a certain amount of wealth, which only exists in some computer or series of computers somewhere? And, if so, can't groups like ANONYMOUS simply come along and take that wealth and redistribute it to whomever they choose? I know there is all kinds of security out there to prevent such an occurrence, but hasn't ANONYMOUS already proven that it has changed the rules under which those in charge would force us to live? Is there any computer system in existence that is infallible or is digital security a mere illusion as well. Even if it isn't, what happens to all the digital wealth accumulated when people find that there is no use in the dollar, because only a few people have this currency?
