Gold can not think, it can not feel, it can not be honest, it can not be dishonest. Gold is not money without consensus.
We are entering a great time in modern history. A small window is opening. This window has opened before, but never at a time when we have had so many tools with which to find the answers for ourselves. The chains of the gold and fiat currency standards have been dancing a ballet around us for over a thousand years. This transitional dance, from a gold standard to a fiat standard, has been so grand, so all encompassing, that its expanse is beyond the detection of a single lifetime.
Here we are, on the cusp of yet another chance, our best chance, to elevate and degage. We are being told that there are two camps that are about to set our future, yet once again. The honesty of gold is on one end, and the self-appointed masters of the world that are setting our future, behind closed doors, are on the other.
I am here to tell you that you are the masters of your own fate, and if you stand by and allow yourselves to let this pondering of what Money is, and what it can be, pass you by, then you have done yourselves a great disservice.
Corruption is not a value that one can assign to Money. Corruption is solely a value assigned to and by Man. We are being told corruption is our only option, that Corruption has been, is, and always will be.
People are corrupt simply because they have authority, either given to them or thrust upon them. Authority is little more than a group of people wanting someone else to think about, and handle, a situation for them. The less thought we put into the situation ourselves, the more corruptible this authority becomes.
I can not assure you that your thinking about this will solve it, but I can promise you that without thought, we are simply accepting that we enjoy this dance that occurs on the stage in front of us, just outside of the ebb and flow of our daily lives.
This conversation about the honesty of gold is a slight of hand. A misdirection. A fraud. Corruption is the devil behind the mask of Money, and our persistent contemplation is the angel of our liberty.Filed under: Banking / Economics, Gold Corruption Silver
