True, but only to a very limited extent

No one is forcing you to get paid a certain way. 100% no one is forcing you to not convert one type of currency into another type of currency.

Ever try paying your taxes in silver or bitcoin? Y'know, those 'voluntary' taxes.

Sure, I can go to a yard sale and trade some silver for a trinket or two, maybe make a few deals on craigslist, but the fact remains that the FRN is indeed forced upon many people, especially those in oil-producing countries.

Basically, I think it's it's unrealistic to expect people to abandon the FRN completely with the current 'rules' in place. It can be done to an extent, but it's not nearly as easy as you're making it seem.
