As much as I write, little matters in the context of my OVERARCHING MESSAGE. As David Schectman puts it, the sheer volume of daily content Miles Franklin publishes is “information overload” to many; particularly those with a long-term perspective; and more importantly, to those that already understand the “HOY GRAIL OF THE FINANCIAL WORLD.”

 

Until first seeing Excalibur in 1981 – BY FAR, the greatest of all Arthurian epics – I believed the Holy Grail to refer solely to Christ’s cup at the Last Supper. However, the

 

Grail actually first appeared in Arthurian literature; as much a symbol of WISDOM, as a tribute to the Lord. I will not feign an attempt to demonstrate further knowledge of the topic; easily, one of the most debated and analyzed of all biblical legends. However, I am quite sure the immutable knowledge the Grail purports to hold is the ultimate goal of ALL mankind.

 

In Excalibur, civilization declined into Dark Ages when the Grail’s secret was lost; regained ONLY when Percival rediscovered it – i.e., the land (England) and King (Arthur) are one. In this instance, Arthur is clearly depicted as God – mankind’s one and only savior…

 

The Grail Found – Excalibur

 

If I may segue from the spiritual to the material; the MOST IMPORTANT WISDOM I CAN IMPART ON YOU – above all - is that PHYSICAL gold and silver are REAL MONEY, and all else fiat. Or – again referring to Arthurian legend, gold is the Once and Future King. In other words, by holding your wealth in PHYSICAL PMs, you are not “investing,” but saving. Over time, only PHYSICAL gold and silver have maintained purchasing power against Central bank generated INFLATION; while fiat currencies have not only failed to do so…

 


 

…but don’t even come close to the true DEFINITION of MONEY…

 


 

…in other words, “THE HOLY GRAIL OF THE FINANCIAL WORLD.”
