Every so often, I come across an article – in and of itself – deemed “RANTworthy.” Below is one such piece; by none other than publishing magnate Steve Forbes, whom for years has been a vocal proponent of the gold standard…


Gold and the Wicked Magicians


In it, he demonstrates why past societies have thrived under the gold standard – and floundered without it. In essence, government hates REAL MONEY due to constraints it imposes on spending; and thus, power.


Without such constraint, Central banks can for some time perform what is temporarily deemed “financial alchemy”; and consequently, create the illusion of “DEFICITS WITHOUT TEARS.” Of course, the operative word is temporary; as the ultimate monetary result is ALWAYS the same; i.e., FEAR…




…and HYPERINFLATION…




I could pen all sorts of background commentary on the topic, but sometimes an article says it all – single-handedly.


PROTECT YOURSELF, and do it NOW!
