Thus, I have to forward it by hand.

I am not so sure what this may mean. In principle, money belongs to
the political community where the same is common currency. To the
"people", if you prefer. Nothing even today prevents somebody to sell
piece of papers, and exchange them against goods or services if he or
she so wishes. Nothing but the fact that you are probably going to be
killed if you have any success at all. :-)

OK, reality is all an illusion, and free will does not even exist in
the first place, but if this is the case, no real reason to object to
nationalisation of central banks, right?
