The Florida Governor, Ron DeSantis, affirms that an American Central Bank digital currency (CBDC) will empower the government at the expense of personal freedom. Further, according to his speech at Fort Myers Technical College, DeSantis warned that the US CBDC would give the government much control over how people spend money.

Nonetheless, DeSantis remarks that CBDCs go against the values the free society upholds. Notably, it would catalyze a shift of power from a wide range of people. He has further remarked that the government provide a benevolent rationale for their actions, yet, it is nothing more than a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

However, he noted that CBDC is a wolf coming as a wolf. According to the Republican Governor, the central bank’s digital currency will be a massive power transfer from individual consumers to a central authority. And that’s just fundamentally antithetical to a free society, he added.
